Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

MP830 prints a black stripe down the back of the paper

Whenever I receive a fax or print something there is a heavy black line (about 1/4" thick") down the center of the back side of the page. If I print several pages in a row the line gets faint but is still there. After replacing the large black cartridge (#5) the unwanted stripe is darker to the point of making some of the info on the page difficult to read. I'm sure I'm wasting a lot of ink. Any ideas?

    I tried cleaning the nozzles and aligning the print heads, but I still have a heavy black line on the back of the sheet. I am going through black ink at an alarming rate. Any suggetions?

    I have the same problem. I've tried cleaning the bottom plate (helps a little for a short while) and even around the cartridge area. Didn't help the line came back. Not sure what to do...any other suggestions?

    Tried the cleaning where the cartridge goes. Didn't work. Any other ideas? Already bought another printer but would like to be able to use this one.

    I had the same problem with my printer. A professional came by and cleaned my machine for me and the problem has gone away. I'm pretty sure it will return at some point though. My last printer was the same model and after about a year of heavy use the line started appearing. I replaced it. The same time frame elapsed with the new printer before the problem developed. The printer seems to be made to stop functioning correctly after a short life.

The waste ink pads are full ..when the black line appears it is an indicator that the waste ink pads are full it is usualy because the printer has reached its life expectancy the solution is either buy a new printer or pay a tech about 170 dollars to repair it

I'M GETTING A THICK BLACK LINE DOWN THE MIDDLE OF MY. PHOTO AND UPLOAD. TRIED RE CALIBRATING WITH WHITE PAPER. DIDN'T WORK HELP


What printer do you have? Is the black line appearing on the paper when you print or when you fax/copy something?
If it is the latter, then there will be a mark on the optics glass that needs to be cleaned. Usually people using whiteout when wet causes this.
You will need to lift the cover where the paper goes through and check the glass

Heavy black stripe on back side of every printed page


This is probably due to miss alignment, there is an option of test page which will be scanned to allign the cartridge, if ur's a all in one printer. This test page is printed at the first time and scanned instantly for first time operation.

Thankyou

When I copy or fax with my 4215 it leaves a thick black stripe down the middle of the page, but not when I print off the computer.


There should be somewhere for you to open the printer to see the area that reads the document (might be a small strip of glass), there could be something stuck on this area (tiny spec the width of your line), thus causing the lines on the scan and not the prints. I am not too familiar with that model, so that is the best I have for you. Hope it helps.

Stripe on receiving fax Brother MFC 7820N


I had the same problem, and I just fixed it.  It was a tiny little black dot which was stuck to the glass where the document feeder passes the paper to.  First you need to figure out where the line is on paper with respect to the paper, and just carefully run your finger on the glass to see if there is something on the glass.  I removed it, cleaned the glass, and anything which I run through the document feeder is now fine.  Hope this helps.

Fax


From the manual:

If ink has run out while receiving a fax, if the paper size setting is incorrect, or if the paper type is set to a type other than plain paper, the fax is automatically stored in memory and <Received in memory.> is displayed. When the ink tank is replaced or the paper size/type setting is corrected, the stored fax is printed automatically.

Also, if the machine is in the process of something else (printing from computer, making a copy, scanning to computer), when a fax comes in it will be saved to memory, but it should print within a few minutes of becoming idle again.
