Try removing the printhead (cartridges first, careful where you put them, they'll make a mess) then clean the print surface with a window cleaner and cotton swabs.
There may just be deposits on the surface and this is not far from the paper surface.

Streaks in my pictures


You can clean the print head by using the following procedure from the troubleshooting section of the manual:

Take paper out of the printer
Take a single sheet and put it back in - upside down (i.e. shiny side down).
Close the door and wait for the sheet to eject.
Put all the paper back into the printer in the correct orientation (shiny side up), close the lid and print again.

I've discovered even better results by keeping the special blue sheet that comes with each paper pack. I run the special sheet through before I'm about to use the printer for the first time (after not using it for a few days), and also after every three prints. The result is much better printouts for me. The special blue sheet cleans and calibrates the print head. Just put the blue sheet in the paper tray at the bottom of the stack with the bar code facing down and close the lid. It will automatically eject.

When I print photos, they have uniform vertical streaks.


Issue: Banded or streaked prints
Solution: Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows)

Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows) The Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will decrease as the Print Quality setting is increased. Follow the instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing application.
  1. Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.

    Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.

  2. Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.

  3. Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
  1. Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.

  2. In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.

    Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.

  3. Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.
