Are you copying? maybe there are scratches on the glass of the scanner.
if printing ... usually means your low on ink or a nozzel is clogged with ink or dust etc... grab like a "deep" tupperware lid shallow side facing the counter, pour some "coffe pot " hot water in it , then take the cartridge (30-31.40-41.50-51-52.) as it sits in the printer , placing the bottom most part into the water ( maybe towards the edge using the side of the lid to prop up the shorter side of the bottom of cartridge as to keep it level and or flat) place the matching peice of tupperware over the bath (like a dutch oven) to keep steam in and leave anywhere from a10 minutes to half hour - hour. you'll know when it is done by folding a napkin and or paper towel keeping it flatten out and dabbing ( or blotting the bottom of the cartridge onto it eith on your hand or flat surface likr the counter ) blott untill you can see "CLEAR !" cyan (blue), Yellow, Magenta(pink) bars IF BARS ARE INCOMPLETE PLACE BACK INTO BATH WITH FRESH HOT WATERAND REPEAT STEPS ( ABOVE). IF BARSARE MISSING ALL TOGETHER NO MATTER HOW MANY BATHS ARE GIVEN YOU WILL NEED TO REFILL OR PURCHASE A REPLACEMENT CARTRIDGE , THIS ONE COLOR IS CLOSE OR IS EMPTY?

My canon printer is not printed goodly.the printed paper is not clear.so whts the problem?


Your description is a little vague but the most likely fix is to remove all the cartidges and then the printhead itself. Wash it under flowing warm water, dry it thoroughly and replace it and the cartidges in your machine. Perform a deep clean either through the printer settings on your computer or press and hold the "resume" button until the power light flashes twice. The machine will then perform a self clean and nozzle check.

I have deep cleaned my MP190 twice as per instructions and still I get horizontal lines in my printing.


The printhead has a few blocked nozzels. If deep cleaning does not clear the blocked nozzels then the printhead needs to be changed.
A new printhead is an expensive item and costs nearly as much as a new printer. I suggest you put your money towards a new and better printer that may be a more cost effective solution.

Ip4000 printer prints but with horizontal lines


Cannon recommend a cleaning process called deep head cleaning

  1. Open the Printers folder.

    - For Windows XP select 'Start', 'Control Panel', 'Printers and Other Hardware', and 'Printers and Faxes'.
    - For Windows versions other than Windows XP select 'Start', 'Settings', and 'Printers'.

  2. Right-click the printer icon and select 'Properties'.

  3. Click the Maintenance tab, and then click the 'Deep Cleaning' icon.

  4. Select the ink tank color(s) for deep cleaning ('All Colors', 'Black', or 'Color').

  5. Confirm the message, and then click the 'Execute' button.

  6. The Power lamp will blink and print head deep cleaning will start. Deep cleaning completes when the Power lamp stops blinking and lights. (It will take about a minute for the Power lamp to stop blinking and light solid.)

  7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern by holding down the <Resume> on the printer until the Power light flashes twice to determine if further cleaning is necessary. Up to three deep cleanings may be necessary to determine if the print head is working properly

Canon Pixma MP130 printing lines through pictures etc


I'd say it's probably the printer driver. Uninstal and reinstal it or update it. Printer drivers are a comon cause of printing faults.

I am getting white horizontal lines through my color photos when I print them. Is there an adjustment that I need to make in order to eliminate these lines for a clear sharp color photograph?

Horizontal lines through my printed photos


Are you sure your ink is not on the verge of finishing? Try changing the colour ink and print again. Sometimes I take the cartridge out, shake the ink down just in the same flashing motion as I do my pen, then replace it. You may try that.
