Hey there, look at what my printer is doing


this was just a whole lot of akdjskljfjalkj on a whole page..All ink tanks are full..

Its a win98se, with a Cannon BJC3000 on lpt. I used both OpenOffice, and Microsoft Publisher

looks like a driver issue.

Have you taken covers off airholes on the tanks?

That doesn't really look like drivers, it looks more like a blocked/contaminated print head. Are the ink tanks OEM, clones or refills?

BTW, you can test without using so much ink of you make a 1-2 cm crosshatch pattern in Publisher or any graphics prgram. That will pick up vertical and horizontal streaking.

Try the Canon test page and see what it shows for head performance.

It's only on Black, cos i cant print a whole document in another colour thats not black, darkish red (although still black being used) it still works.

It did both head cleaning, and deep heading clean, head alignment and colour test worked fine.
