Operating System Version:win98se
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Canon bjc265sp
Error Messages:nil

I recently had to reformat my drive and re-install windows onto my computer.

Since doing this .. my printer has white lines through the text, as if the print cartridge has a blocked jet. I have downloaded new drivers from canon website, and I have cleaned the printhead several times. This has only happened since re-installation. Help me please!

This isn't your exact printer but this is what Canon has to say

Some of the nozzles inside the cartridge can become clogged not allowing any ink to flow onto the paper. It is suggested that five head cleanings be done to clear the clogged nozzles.

To perform a head cleaning, make sure that the printer is on and the light on the printer is steady green. Press and hold down the RESUME button for two beeps. After the head cleaning has been done five times, try printing again.

If there are still white streaks in the printout, remove the cartridge from the printer and wipe the bottom of the cartridge with some rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. Try printing again. If there are still white streaks in the printout, the cartridge may be in need of replacement.

On top of that of also heard of the problem being fixed by removing
the print cartride and running it under hot water for 10 seconds
(Just the bottom)
Let it dry and then replace, try again

I had an old HP printer, I had a similiar problem one time.
I put the print heads into simmering water because the above didn't work. 5 minutes later the cartridge started emitting ink. Let it dry
and it worked again..Do at your own risk:)
