Attempting to print on glossy photographic paper.  Process is noisy. Yellow lines appearing across photo.  Have checked ink levels and have cleaned printhead and cartridges. Print report satisfactory on ordinary paper.

Sorry for the long delay! I wasn't notified of your last reply for some reason.
If nothing has worked, go ahead and replace the Printhead, if you haven't already, and you should be back in business.

Thank you.  I cleaned print head using the "Tools" on screen only. Will check to see if the paper setting is automatic. The noisy operation for glossy paper only may indicate a worn part perhaps.

Normally it's not but sometimes it can be altered. If it's set to automatically detect paper type then you should be ok.
How did you clean the Printhead exactly? Did you do so in the settings or by using a chemical cleaning kit? Remove the Printhead from the Printer and clean it using Warm Water and a Paper Towel only. Try again and see if you have any improvements. If not, you may just have a faulty Printhead. Your 5510 uses a 564 Printhead and can be replaced here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/new-Printhead-Print-head-CB326-30002-CN642A-for-HP564XL-HP-564-Ink-Cartridges-/291010042050.

Brand is Canon.  Pixma photo paper. 170 gm A4 size

labelled "Everyday Use"

No I have not reset Printer Preferences - not aware that is needed to do that. Printing has been satisfactory on this paper during previous use.

Hi and welcome to Just Answer, a fee based Question and Answer Company.  My name is Carl and I will be assisting you today.
What is the exact glossy paper brand and type that you are using? Have you set your Printer Preferences to Glossy Paper before printing?
