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

It sounds very much like a failed printhead or printhead driver; the circuit that controls which jet is addressed or left blank.

SOURCE: while printing photos my printer has white vertical lines

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.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma IP3500 prints B&W with white streaks

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.

Printing vertical green lines on photos


The troubleshooting section for banding below was taken from the user manual found at this web link:

White or Dark Lines in Printout

If you notice white or dark lines in your prints (also called banding), try these solutions before you reprint:

• Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if necessary.

• Make sure the paper type setting matches the type of paper you loaded.

• Make sure you loaded the printable side of the paper correctly for your product.

• Turn off any high speed settings in your product software.

• Align the print head.

• You may need to replace the ink cartridges.

Hope this helps...

My Dell 1720dn mono laser printer has not printed properly for some time - in fact it's dreadful! The letters and dark images have white vertical lines going through them, and some of the printing do


Change your toner cartridge. A properly working toner cartridge will never leave that much toner lying around. The white lines are an indication that either the toner is low, or the mag roller is defective.

How do i clean the hp printer's in order to get a clean and darker print?


Print quality depends on cartridge health condition only, especially in inkjet printers.*Print head clogging: Usually white horizontal lines in print outs due to print head nozzles are clogged. Printer it self having self cleaning mechanism to clean the nozzles while printing & powering on..And "clean nozzles" option also designed in printer drivers for cleaning. And last option is manual cleaning. Alcohol is good solvent & best for cleaning the nozzles,use cotton or ear buds to swab on the surface of the nozzles with alcohol gently.. You will get good quality print outs if cartridges are in good condition..(see the snap shots)Other parts to clean: Encoder,disc encoder, service station & rollers needs to clean periodically to avoid malfunctions & paper jams.* Encoder's malfunctions: If any vertical or horizontal crooked print outs observed, clean both encoders needs to clean.. (see snap shot for encoders)*Service station malfunctions: If any carriage jams observed in service station, remove & clean it ..(see the snap shot)*Rollers malfunctions: If media is not picking up properly it causes jamming error,clean or replace the rollers..

The printer is printing dark along side the edges of the paper each time I print. I've changed the drum, but that didn't seem to help. What else can I do?


Print an empty word document, and if it still shows the dark lines on the edges the rollers are most likely caked with ink, and they will need to be cleaned.

I have cleaned the developer blades of the colour cartridges in my samsung clp-300 laser printer as per instructions on this site. The vertical white lines have now gone BUT i now have a 3 mm wide blue...


Check to make sure the blade is UNDER the foam along the side where the streak is. If it isn't, then more toner is getting out than should be and that is the cause of your streak.

Are the white lines horizontal or vertical?

Try to clean the contacts.
