Canon IP3000 printer suddenly printing in bands


Likes # 0

I have been using my Canon IP3000 successfully for several years. For some reason today it has started printing in bands. I am trying to print a Publisher page with pictures, border, text - but it prints about 1/2cm then leaves a 1/2cm gap then prints 1/2cm etc. I have tried printing an old Publisher document which printed OK at Christmas and the same thing happens. I have changed the almost empty cyan cartridge so all cartridges have ink. I have also performed a nozzle test and alignment test and they both work OK. It has printed a Word document OK, but when I copied and pasted one page of my Publisher file to Word that didn't print OK. Any help gratefully received.
