It sounds like there is ink on your rollers. If you can get to them, then try cleaning them with a lint free cloth and a little water. Don't use anything like nail varnish remover or anything alcohol based - it may damage the rubber. I'm not sure what model printer you have, so cannot tell you how to access the rollers - but it may be easier if you take out the paper tray, and lift the lid.

Black ink streak on left side of paper on hp 1012, just put in new toner


Run a half test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1).
Send a print job to printer. When the paper gets 3/4 of the way into the printer, open the cover. Pull out the toner cartridge, look down at the sheet inside the printer. Does it have the streak on the left side? If yes...your toner cartridge is bad. If no...replace the fuser.

Leaving black streaks down paper? Ink cartridge


If this started after cartridge was replaced, then it is probably defective.

Take the cartridge out and take a look at the print head. Clean the print head.
Put the cartridge back in
Try and feed paper (not printing anything on it, if you can not get it to just feed paper, print a blank page) and see if it still has lines. If so, you are probably going to have to clean ink from inside the paper feed area. If not, try using it for a while and if it starts again, get a replacement cartridge. You might want to save some of the bad prints to show the clerk and try to get the new cartridge under warranty.

Why does my epson stylus 1400 leave streaks in the print?


The tracking wheels (spiked wheels) can pick up ink and lay it back down. They can also accumulate debris that collect ink and put it down in the form of streaks. This is especially true if you use dusty or moist papers (or frosting sheets).

It's the Black Stripe thing When you begin a printing job a 1/2" wide streak of black ink is on the back side of each pieceof paper Canon iP5200R


You need a new ink absorber kit with a guard sheet to stop ink from coming up from the bottom and getting on the exit rollers. It's a major job to remove the print engine and a messy one. Best done in repair shop..

Printer prints a black streak down the reverse side


You have a build up of ink inside the printer. I had a Canon that did this. I had to take the ink & print head out, and tear a paper towel strip 1 " wide and 13" long or however long the paper towel is. I folded it in half down the length so it was 1/2x13. Then used a plastic strip to shove it under the part the print head sits in. Once I got the towel to the other side, I grabbed it with my hand. I removed the plastic strip used to shove the paper towel under. So now the paper towel sticks out both sides underneath the print head cradle. I gently pull the paper towel back and forth so the paper towel can clean off the ink build up. Hope this helps.

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

Black smudges on printed page


Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.

In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).

Leaking black ink on printed pages


Hi, please attempt to run a numerous blank paper through the printer. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains or streaks are still present, the printer may need service.
