You should check whether the color ink is out or not. If so replace it with a new one.
Otherwise just cleaning the print head will solve your problem.
To clean the head Go to control panel > open printers and faxes > right click printer icon > Click properties >
Find the option "Clean print head" or somthing sismilar. Use it and your problem could be solved.
Note: Some printers have seperate software utilities to clean the print head.

Not sure where you found the recommendation to use Windex on your print heads but chemicals should be avoided. It sounds like you have damaged so of the head elements and now they are leaking. There are specialized fluids for cleaning print heads or plain old water will dissolve ink as well. Too late for you however if the heads have been damaged they will need to be replaced.
that print head is clogged,
do the clean cycle shown in the manual;
new cartridge time if cleaning does not work.
all things work last week but now.
nothing new here and for sure pesky printers
and for sure not used every day. (this keep them going more reliably)
made back in 2008, so is getting long in tooth and on most this full cleaning of the whole printer is advised. ever do that?
try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.
I suspect your camera has a defective CCD which is quite common for the A75. Canon is aware of the problem and has issued a recall for affected cameras. I have had mine repaired under this recall. Here is a link with some pictures which show what the problem looks like.
I hope this helps
If you are using original cartridges then there should not be a problem. The horizontal lines come from the cartridge. Can you pinpoint if it is a color or black line that is missing? My guess is that during the alignment procedure, you are asked to choose a number or letter that corresponds to picture of a the lines that show the best alignment. If you did this correctly, may I ask how many pictures you printed before seeing that line. Is it on the first print or 10th printing? Cuz if it is on the 5th or more full color picture, then the problem is that you you really have the wrong printer. The F380 capacity for printing full color pictures is miniscule. 1 ml per color. So usually after the 3rd color picture, the ink starts to run out. Let me know if this helps.
