Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Besides head cleaning, make sure that you have the appropriate paper selected. For example when I print out a photo on the plain paper setting but I am using photo paper, I get horizantal lines. When I switch to photo paper, it prints solid without the lines.

Hi, Most Inkjets have maintenance software installed in the computer itself where the printer is attached. If you would like to try, please click on Start/Printers and Faxes/ A new window will pop up where your Canon Pixma MP500 will be shown. Right click on the Canon icon and left click on the Properties. A new window will pop up. See if there is any Utilities or Maintenance Tab. If none, try clicking on Printing Preferences. Another window will pop up. Normally this is where your Maintenance Option is displayed. Clicking on the Maintenance (sometimes they use Utilities) Tab, a list of maintenance options will be displayed. Pls follow the on screen instructions. They icons represent the action you would want done like head cleaning, alignment, roller cleaning etc. Clicking on the icon initiate the action. Should you still need a copy of the User's Manual, it may be downloaded from www.usa.canon.com Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
