Canon PIXMA MX922 prints wavy lines and ghost images.

Hi.  My Canon PIXMA MX922 prints wavy lines and ghost images.  I've ran EVERY diagnostic and I have also cleaned the clear strip inside the printer. HELP!!!  Is it just the printer's time to expire?

I am having this exact same problem! I've tried nozzle cleanings, head alignments, etc multiple times and nothing works. Anything printed with just the color inks and photo black comes out fine. It has to be something related to the big black ink.

Hi Chris2021 and JessesGirl,

 

Having a smudge on the encoder/timing strip will cause the behavior that you have described. Please make sure you are cleaning the whole strip, from right to left. To clean the encoder/timing strip, please follow the steps outlined in the following Knowledgebase Article available from our web site:

I tried cleaning the timing strip several times and still get ghost lines. It only hapens with fine letter and fine lines. When I print the test patern after cleaning the fine line grid has the ghost lines only in the center the top and bottom are fine. lines
