Your problem is not isolated; I read of two others on this site in mid-August 2008 and added my own post.
I contacted Canon Support and tried their solution (which you've already tried); it did not work. Given the choice of repairing a printer that I've had (and babied) for less than 2 years or buying a new Canon at a discount under their Loyalty Program, I chose to take my MP530 to a Canon Authorized Repair Facility.
According to the repair tech, there is a problem with the waste ink tank and ink absorber pads. The repair facility ordered and installed a rebuild kit; it took about 2 weeks. The printer now works beautifully again.
If your printer is still under warranty, you're in luck. If not, ask that it be handled as a warranty repair. In my opinion, Canon should recalling and offering to fix this problem free of charge.

the waste ink pads are full ..when the black line appears it is an indicator that the waste ink pads are full it is usualy because the printer has reached its life expectancy the solution is either buy a new printer or pay a tech about 170 dollars to repair it
