The black line going down the back is from toner coming off of the cartridge

open the printer (I am assuming it is **** shell design remove the developer/toner section

open the plastic shutter that goes all teh way across the drum area and inspect you may find a piece of paper in there or there is suppose to be a wiper assembly that may be bad

while you have the machine open clean the charger wires( they pull out on a rod and clean with a pencil erasure

also inspect the fuser rollers(be careful they are hot to make sure no toner has built up on them if so let the macne cool and clean with silicone lubricant do not scrae with any sharp object

When printing on my Canon Pixma MP500, there is a dark black line down the middle of the page. As the pages print, it gets lighter and lighter, but is very dark on the first one. Any thoughts?


Ink tends to overflow at the bottom guide rollers and the roller gets coverd in ink and causes the black line!The best will be to take it to a dealer and have it cleaned!Good Luck!

Black line on back of paper printed by canon pixma mp500, I have tried the cleaning steps recommended by canon but it doesn't work,


You will need a shop to dismantle the printer, the ink is being forced up onto the exit rollers from below. It needs a good cleaning plus a mylar shield installed to keep that from happening again.
