Question about Canon MP560 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I've cleaned the rollers but still get white lines on the prints.
White lines means some of the print head nozzles maybe blocked.
Try the deep clean print head cycles then do a test print. If this still does not fix the problem then a new print head is required.
Print heads are expensive and if your printer is old then maybe better to put your money towards a new printer.

Really sounds like the black portion of your print head is clogged. Do the "deep clean" on the black head a couple of times. If it's still not working you may have either a bad head or a clogged purge unit.
Clogged purge units are very common on inkjets.
You can try soaking the bottom of the head on a very wet paper towel overnight. Retry using the head the next day and see if the black is working (print more text documents).
If that doesn't work, you'll have to find a way to check the purge unit/capping assembly under the home position of the head. It will require taking the unit apart and removing the purge unit and cleaning it. Make sure the two tubes are not clogged, Use a piece of wire and feed it through the tubes to try and remove any dried ink.
If you're not into trying to take the unit apart, it's time for a service shop or a replacement printer

Sounds like you need to re-align the print cartridge . The reason the text comes out ok is probably because it is only using the black cartridge for text. The color cartridge is the one that's out of alignment. You may have some sort of Cannon utility running in the task bar that will allow you to easily allign the print cartridges. If not, go to the main "Printers and Faxes" window, RIGHT-click on the printer and select "Properties". You should be able to find a button in the properties that's labeled something like re-align print cartridges. It will print out a series of test pages and ask you to select the set of lines that looks the straightest and type it in. It's a good idea to do this every time you replace a cartrige. Hope this helps, If I was able to FixYa, please remember to rate me. Thanks.

as i can suggest you that it can be the problem of head clogged internally where you insert your black cartridge .and the other main cause is while you give a head cleaning command to get the cartridge cleaned it sucks or pulls the ink from the cartridge in such a huge quantity that 3-4 cleanings make the cartridge totally empty .due to this the ink gets very low and the printouts come with streaks.many a times setting the print mode in best makes the copy perfect.but the printing gets too slow in that best mode.
