This is caused by a blocked or full "Ink Absorber". I replaced mine myself and took a few photo's. Any waste ink is absorbed into a large area under the paper delivery rollers at the front of the printer. If there is a blockage or it becomes full it leaks out onto the front rollers creating the famous think black line.
The ink flows along the red arrows. http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm189/Shadeyman67/DSC00495.jpg

And out into the ink absorber here.

Black line is present when copying document; not


This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

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.

Black line on back of page


It sounds like you have a black ink leak and it is smearing onto the paper when you print. I don't know any reasons for this except if you topped the black ink up yourself, and didn't re-block the hole you made. Then I guess the ink would gravity drip onto the paper tray while you weren't printing. Otherwise I would suggest changing the print head, but this might be expensive.
