Default Help with Canon S9000

My S9000 has given me excellent 4X6 prints for approximately a year now but that's come to an end. Now, I have vertical lines on people's faces and I don't know why they appeared or how to correct it. I've done cleanings, head alignment, removed the ink cartridge holder and cleaned everything I could find back there like the rollers etc all to no avail. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Joe,

I had a similar problem last month.

I had prints coming out of my S9000 with horizontal lines.

After doing all the cleaning, allignment etc, the problem
still existed.

Believe it or not, it wound up being a bad batch of paper!!!!

After opening up a new back of paper and making a print, all was fine.

Upon close examination of the paper, under a bright light, I could
see light horizontal lines going across the page end to end.

It drove me crazy to say the least!!!

I had the same problem. Mostly with large format non glossy papers. The lines you see are the places the printheads are scratching the paper. I had to stop using the Canon matte paper for this reason. Allways make sure you store you paper in a place that keeps it very flat.
