Re: Printer not ataking paper and ink leaks

Your printer pickup rollers have probably become slick from usage and ink spills. I work on these type problems all the time - inkjet printers are simply as nasty as they come in terms of getting dirty from ink waste. It needs to be disassembled and cleaned, and the pickup rollers cleaned and reconditioned with a rubber restorative. I would probably take it to a reputable, reasonable repair shop.

5x7 inch paper moves towards end of print and black ink smudges edge of paper

Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

I have ink leaking and spraying inside the machine!!

Open the cover. Take a lot of tissues. Find where your cartridges are usually located, when they are not printing. There should be a sponge there, which is probably full of ink (that's normal). All you need to do is wipe your printer, especially the sponges. If the cartridges are also leaking, take them out of your printer, put them on some tissue, so the excess ink can drain on the paper. Check the cartridges after several minutes, if they are still leaking, leave them again on some paper or tissue, until they stop leaking.
Hope that helps!

Ink Leaking into bottom of printer and the paper keeps jamming up on the right hand side above the ink leak.

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Ink blobs on paper

It could be both. Leaky ink can be a problem and that probly is the problem. But, make sure your rollers are clean and cheak that your ink is not leaking. I hope this has helped you.

Leaking black in from the bottom of the printer

actually your printer needs servicing but for temprory solution.take a bunch of tissue paper .keep the printer on and the printer cover open so the cartridge will be in the center.then with the tissue paper place it internally on the side from where its leaking.the sponge which collects the wastage ink is at present got full and now it does not have the capacity to soak the its you will place the tissue papers the ink will be soaked by tissue paper and the sponge will again become bit dry to soak more ink.but its the temprory make it permanent get the printer serviced and sponge replaced.the problem is not all serious ,its common.every printer comes to this stage after certain usage.and the servicing is the solution.a local printer repair shop also does the servicing job .
hope this helps.

Ink keeps leaking from the printer!

The problems you are experiencing are due to ink buildup in the ink absorbers that reside in the base of the printer. I'm surprised that you did not get a "ink absorber almost full" message. Unfortunately this occurs when more ink (heavy printing) goes in to this area than the ink absorbers can absorb and the ink starts to build up. An ink waste tube feeds in to the absorbers right in the front middle of the printer. When the ink begins to build up, it comes up through the paper platen there in the front causing the ink problems on the back of your paper.

The machine will need to be serviced. Canon suggest replacing all of the ink absorbers which is the easiest thing to do from a Tech perspective. The last machine I had in with this problem, I tore down machine and just rinsed all of the absorbers. You also have to rinse the underside of the paper platen.

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.
