Gords8, Like Noggin states let us know what you've tried so far. It does no good for us to continue to post generic things to try; we just waste our time and your problem doesn?t get resolved.

Here is the link to the support page for the mp500; http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=11995 sorry i cant give you a direct link to the instructions, but if you type "print head cleaning" into the "please enter your question" box (on the support and service tab), then it will take you through the whole procedure, including what to do if the different cleaning procedures do not work. This should resolve your problem, please ask again if you are having trouble still. you can also get the user manual if you prefer to read the instructions in there, available under the "drivers and downloads" tab. Hope this helps :)

This evening I bought a new HP Photosmart C4780 printer. I am trying to print photos now and the photos are being printed with small vertical lines across the whole photo. How do I get rid of them?

> I bought a new printer

Take it back, and get one that does work correctly.

> VERTICAL lines ACROSS the whole photo

Hold the paper in "portrait" mode, not "landscape" mode.
Are the lines HORIZONTALLY-ACROSS the paper,
or VERTICALLY-DOWN the paper?

If those lines are WHITE and HORIZONTAL,
then some of the many ink-jets inside the print-head are *CLOGGED*.
Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle" to try to unclog it.
Or, exercise the WARRANTY, and get it replaced.

Epson Stylus Photo 870 only prints black and white

WHen your p;;rinter name comes up, check the printing p;references. You have "P:rint colors as black & white" checked. Un check it. It is in the printer dialog box, not PSP.

IP4000 Color Printing Problem

If you have a monochrome option, I would use that.
I'm guessing that your old black and white photo's (which I'm thinking you scanned in may have a sepia tinge which the printer is emphasizing, and if you only want black/white prints, no need to print with colour.

Printing problem

you may have a faulty Thermal element, sounds like a cold spot in the middle of the print head is messing up your photo. If this is in warranty or is new get them to replace it

Horizontal lines

do a nozzle check, or printer utility check on the printer and see if this helps.
