It is possible some of the nozzles of the printhead are clogged.
Do a couple of printhead cleaning cycles may help.

Canon pixma iP1000 is skipping random lines when printing


Sounds like it's congealed ink on the print head. You can buy cleaning kits and do it your self. Relatively in expensive compared to leaving it into the shop.

My printer will only print the top or bottom half of words


This sounds like your word program and not your printer. The information from your word program is not being sent from the DLL correctly. Try a different word program or try reinstalling word.

Every second line the top of the sentence is blank


Try replacing the Print head, if this does'nt help try purging the printer by having the printer pump ink through the nozzles by using clean funtion in your options and maintance menu. More then like the Black cartridge is clogged or needs replacing, Ink is put on paper by the unit heating the ink and outputing it to very small nozzles on the printhead.

There are gaps,skipping lines, even printing the top half of a line then a gap, then the bottom half


run the cleaning cycle in the software for your printer. Sounds like your ink might have gotten a little dry and clogged up.

Every other line prints only bottom half of text.


I have a psc 2355 printer which only prints half of text then the next lines are ok then it repeats only printing half text. I removed my ink cartridge and wiped the ink ports with a tissue heavily moisten with water. Repeated this several times and then gently dried with a tissue. The problem was fixed!!
