i got an MP170 for my birthday in january, and I have to say it has been a brilliant printer, excellent photograph printing , etc. so thats why i was so suprised when i went to print photographs out tonight and there was white lines through the photographs. I cleaned the print nozzles, and it is still doing it, so i know it isnt that.
I also replaced the ink cartridge, and it is still doing it, its annoying because it was such a great printer up until now.

TO CLEAN PRINT HEAD, TAKE AN A4 SHEET OF PAPER CUT IT TO SIZE FOR THE POGO,BUT MAKE IT (3) THREE THIKNESSES THIK, FEED IT IN UNDER THE PRINT HEAD AND CLOSE LID, WHILE THE PAPER IS BEING EJECTED PUSH UP ON THE PAPER THAT IS BEING EJECTED WITH YOUR FINGERS, YOU MAY NEED TO DO THIS A NUMBER OF TIMES, BUT IT WILL CLEAR THE STREAKING. IT WORKED FOR ME AND MY POGO DOSE BRILLIANT PRINTS.HOPE THIS HELPS PEOPLE. JB
If you are not confident you can open the scanner unit and keep it clean and dust free whilst you complete the task, then take it to a service center.
If you feel confident enough to dismantle the scanner and remove the cables from the main board, then give it a whirl. You may find a service manual helpful in dismantling the unit. Try http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com
