Run a few cleaning cycles on the printer, if that does not stop the stripes watch a youtube video and remove the print head and clean it with some rubbing alcohol. Give it a shot you have nothing to lose!

Sometimes the print heads cannot be cleaned or are worn out, you can often get a replacement cheap on ebay however the print head sometimes can be a fair amount of the cost of a new printer, just depends on the model.
