    Pretty much same problem but I have a an i550.

    Prints fine when printing on normal paper but when I try to print a picture I get yellow greenish verticle streaks. I have tried cleaning multiple (>5)times, no better no worse. Then I had to replace tanks still the same.

    There is a streak on the right side of my photos. Is there a way to clean the printer head?

Sorry, but your cartridges are only tanks. The problem is in your printhead. First, call up the Canon utility - CLEAN your printhead 2 or 3 times. If that does not help, then replace the printhead. Ed

Take out your ink cartridge and clean off the bottom of it with a damp cloth.

Installed printer will not print

I found a vista driver for a Pixma ip 2600 and downloaded it. My printer now works but the black ink doesn't. Don't know if it's a driver issue or otherwise. It might be worth a try for you. There are no available vista drivers for the ip3000.

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.

Pixma ip 3000

I think that if you use the bottom tray to load the paper, you can use the different sizes of paper to print. Make sure to click the second button inside the lid that shows the direction the paper is fed into the printer. hope this helps!

Wide black streak on back of printed paper

Hi,

it is not directly coming from the head. Probably you are printing your photos without borders. This means that the printer prints slightly beyond he paper. As a consequence is sprays ink on the mechanics and after a while it starts to smear on the back of the paper.

This phenomenon is even mentioned in the printer manual (kind of caution when selecting borderless printing).

There is a menu item in the printer utilities that lets you clean the printer mechanics with a folded paper. I tried this, but it helps only little.

I have the same effect on a pixma IP 4500 , and I live with it.

Cheers

Critter

Canon Pixma Ip 5200

Dear all,
Hmm, it seem that some ink incidentally dropped in the roller. You need to remove the cover and clean it manually with a clothe. If you cannot do this just take your printer to the nearest service center.

Regards,
