Pixma IP2000 - black lines across bottom of page

I am having trouble with my printer printing black lines across the bottom of the page whenever I print. I have tried to clean parts of the printer but to no avail. Is there a specific place to clean or do I need a new printer?? in black ink, first 5-10 lines are good & readable. then line quality varies for rest of page. have tried cleaning, and deep cleaning. clears up for a few pages, then back to good first few lines, then unreadible with horizontal lines and blanks. complained to ink supplier who said get a new printer. waiting for real canon inks to see if problem is cheap ink. rhn

Yes wait for the canon ink to arrive and do the whole cleaning and aligning process again, if still no joy after that its the electronic inkjet controllers which have gone faulty meaning a new printer

hope this helps

kind regards

    while you wait for the printers in use the printers own software to realign the cartridges and print a test page

    Remove the cartridges from the head and then remove the head where you
    will be able to inspect it. Thoroughly clean the bottom of the head and
    inspect the "parking sponge" for excess ink. Blot the sponge with
    kitchen roll to remove the excess ink. Take a torch or powerful light
    and inspect the bottom of the paper feed where the head runs backwards
    and forwards, sometimes when using non standard paper etc the head
    overshoots and deposits ink which accumulates and leaves streaks on the
    paper mostly on the back.

    Clean this area with a damp cloth and the rollers with some alcohol.

    Reassemble and charge the head with ink, run a couple of bottom plate cleaner papers and examine for streaks.

Canon Pixma ip2000 Inkjet printer wont print black. Replacing cartridge did not fix the problem.


Remove ink cartridges,then print head.
Clean print head with dry cue tips.
Apply strong suction over black print
jets on print head.
Replace print head and cartridges.
It worked for me.

Printer is putting a 1/2 dark black line on the back of the pages


dear friend

looks like problem related with refilled cartridges

are you using refilled cartridges??

if yes then you have to check whether they are leaking or not,

if they are leaking, you have to maintain cleaning level

thats all you can do

thanks

Black dotted lines


Does the pitch of the dots look like it could be caused by the pin wheels on the exit of the paper path?

If so it could be that the wheels have got knocked or sagged and are just touching the print as it exits the machine. Try gently prizing them up out of the way.

Smudging


hi i am a certified Canon repair tech on this model. when the waste message comes up this means that the waste absorbers in the bottom of the machine need to be replaced. just clearing the error and not replacing them will cause the waste ink to over fill and backup into the machines printing area smugging the print. there are Canon repair centers privately owned that can replace the waste absorbers and clean the machine. the average cannot take this machine apart into peices to clean it. The waste absorbers are fairly cheap but the labor to do this will vary from shop to shop. hope this helps clarify the problem.
