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

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.

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

Double sided copying

here is the manual p4 and p16 discuss the topic:
Duplex printing 1
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper 1
�� If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
�� If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
Slot.
�� If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
stack.
�� When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
Manual duplex printing 1
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing 1
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
copying or fax receiving has finished.


�� Manual Duplex
Check Manual Duplex. In this mode, the machine prints all the even numbered pages first. Then the
printer driver stops and shows the instructions required to re-install the paper. When you click OK the odd
numbered pages are printed. There are six types of manual duplex binding directions available for each
orientation.
�� Booklet Printing
When you want to print a booklet, use this function. To make the booklet, fold the printed pages down the
middle.
�� Binding Offset
If you check the Binding Offset option, you can also specify the offset for binding in inches or millimeters

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.

You most likely have some ink residue on the pickup, feed, or registration rollers for the problem to be on the back of the page. Use a flashlight and a q-tip moistened with isopropyl alcohol to swab all of the rollers in the paper path and see where the higest concentration is. You could also try to LIGHTLY dampen a sheet of paper with alcohol and print a "Blank" page a few times with it then do the same with fresh paper.

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.
