    Very happy with our IP8500 but suddenly it has stopped printing the red and has gone quite 'streaky' - once upon a time it did this because one of the many cartridges was not clicked down properly but this is not the case - have replaced the red twice and done all the usual 'deep clean routines' even checked all the nozzles manually - not sure what else to do

    any ideas?

    Did you check the paper thickness settings? I've had my DW's little Canon do that kind of thing when the wrong paper type was selected.

    Have you turned it on and off again?

    Just kidding.... I would do a full re-install and then run all the set-up stuff again- collating and everything. I've had a printer do this to me, and I really didn't know what was wrong with it.. so I just un-did it all and installed it again and it sorted itself out
