    Every so often my printer will move the print head/cartridge unit to the middle of the sheet flow area and grind for about 30 seconds. I assume it's pumping ink to make sure all heads are ready to print. The next couple sheets printed will have a 1/4" wide streak of heavy black ink down the middle of the back of the sheet. How can I get the printer to stop this?

Dear all,
Hmm, it seem that some ink incidentally dropped in the roller. You need to remove the cover and clean it manually with a clothe. If you cannot do this just take your printer to the nearest service center.

Regards,

I have a problem with huge black streaks on my printed documents.


It's the waste ink getting on the exit rollers instead of going where it should. Canon has a mod for that where you remove the print engine clean the rollers and exit and install a mylar shield so it can't happen again. Probably too big a job for you to do at home..messy too.

Error 5200 is a printhead temperature error, sounds like you need a new printhead. The part number is printed on the side of the printhead. it's a QY6 number

Wide black streak on back of printed paper


Hi,

it is not directly coming from the head. Probably you are printing your photos without borders. This means that the printer prints slightly beyond he paper. As a consequence is sprays ink on the mechanics and after a while it starts to smear on the back of the paper.

This phenomenon is even mentioned in the printer manual (kind of caution when selecting borderless printing).

There is a menu item in the printer utilities that lets you clean the printer mechanics with a folded paper. I tried this, but it helps only little.

I have the same effect on a pixma IP 4500 , and I live with it.

Cheers

Printer print blue instead of black


I have the same problem with my ip 5200, when printing a document in plain black.. I spoke to canon support and they suggested to save the .doc document as a txt file before printing. It works. Not too sure if this uses any colour ink to produce the black.

You can also set the printer on grayscale. However, the printer uses the colour ink to produce black.... hence printing in black & white becomes rather expensive.

If anyone has drivers to fix this problem please let me know...
