Cannon multipass F60 scanner/printer striped color printing

Cannon multipass F60 scanner/printer prints stripes when trying to print color. Black and white printing prints fine but color prints have have perfect evenly striped bars running throughout the page. There seems to be no random or spuradic coloration but evenly striped wherever color is present. Any help would be deeply appreciated. It's my parents printer and they are not very computer savvy, plus I'm only the for the weekend. Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried running the 'realignment' application or the print head cleaning application?

What you have is a dried up color cartridge. You can try to use the <clean print heads> in the diagnostic tools section of you priner software. (usually, just try to print something & the window will appear) Sometimes you have to clean heads, then print test page like 2 or 3 times before it clears up. If that doesn't correct it, don't worry. Have your color cartridge filled (staples, office depot, & other stores do it cheap) - or - replace it with a new cartridge. You may have to run the clean print heads program after installing a new cartridge, but this will definitely fix your problem.

Colors are missing in print. When I try to run align print head, rows A and D are missing. My black ink looks full.


If it has a nozzle cleaning option use that.
If that doesn't work try some of that pink cleaning flush you get with refil kits on the nozzles.

Canon MultiPASS MP700


I had the same problem. My 4 year old MultiPASS MP700 started banding magenta stripes across everything I printed.
I suspected the cyan printhead was clogged because the printhead tests showed two of the cyan columns as half missing.
Canon was less than helpful. I went off of my suspicion that I needed a new printhead. I found one from an online supplier for 50 bucks...better price than a new printer! I put the new print head in and it works like new.

Canon Multipass MP700


When trying to print color documents or photos using our Canon MultiPASS 700, the photo or document will have stripes all the way through it. It has also developed a problem of having fine lines that do not print when we are printing a black and white document.
