    I have a Canon i550 printer which has given me very good service, however, recently it has started printing a darker strip approx.15 Mm. wide at the start of every photo that I print, ruining the finished product. The rest of the picture is quite acceptable. Can any one help with this problem, and is this printer worth trying to repair! I have checked the price of servicing, and frankly I feel that it would be cheaper to buy a new unit if it took more than 1/2 hr. to fix !!

    Sounds like it needs a good cleaning...

    Thank you for your advice "Gurutech" but so far it seems to have had no effect! presumed that by 'Clean" you meant a good interior clean with the small vacuum brush, this I did, also uninstalled and reinstalled, aligned and cleaned print heads etc, all to no avail, strangely though, it only happens when I print a photo to glossyphoto paper, perfect results on plain paper! Strange !! John Price
