Black lines through out the page

[ Edited ]



I have Canon MX922. Offlate the printer prints blank pages with just a few streaks in between. 

I tried cleaning the print head, and performed a copy. The printer now prints sheets with black lines through out (as shown in the picture). 

I performed a nozzle clean up and head alignment - after doing so, the printer is back to printing blank pages with a just a few streaks. 


I am using the official inks and good quallity paper. I have tried cleaning and deep cleaning. I have also cleaned the print head multiple times. All the ink catridges are full.MX922_print.jpeg


Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you.
