Are the stripes in the same direction across the page that the print head moves when printing? If so then this is almost certainly a print head problem. If you get thin stripes in the direction as the paper comes out - then it could be ink on the feed rollers/pinwheels. If you are not sure, then can you post a photo of the print coming out of the printer. Check the nozzles etc but also look in print settings and make sure you are not using bi-directional printing.
