Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I get a black streak that is 1/8 to 1/4 inch wide on the back side of the sheet that I am printing, in the same place each time it happens. Is this caused by the print head and why is it on the back side of the paper?
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.
