    Greetings all... I have what I feel is a simple problem... however, I am short on time... Have a friend with a Cannon Bubble Jet BJC 4400. Everytime she prints anything, it leaves a light streak of ink down one side of the page. She has installed brand new cartridges, no luck, no change... what a good way to check/clean her print heads? It has no options to Align Print Cartridges/ etc... thanks again :)

    Try printing two or three completely blank pages.

    Still streaking? Clean the paper feed path and rollers.

    Check the roller for an ink run on it...

    Yeah, all it needs is cleaning, my BJ did that too.

    Well,,, we cleaned and cleaned,,, the print heads, rollers, ran several blank sheets through.. everything thing we could think of to clean... still streaking... missed something somewhere.
    Is there some special little cleaning trick someone can share...
    I wonder if maybe she just has a bad cartridge...as it seems to streak on the color side... I sure do love this site!!! thanks all for the input!!

    most likely it is the actual printhead itself. Try a double black cartridge in it the cartridge is the BC-20. If it works you know for sure that it is the printhead and then if it is you are better off going out and buying a new printer compared to the price of the actual printhead.
