    I also have a PIXMA iP4200 printer that intermittently leaves an approx. 1/4" heavy black line down the center of the back of the page. I only use Canon toner cartridges, and have cleaned this printer in every possible way many times. Any help would be appreciated.

    Same problem. Black line along back of prints. Cleaned everything in site but fault continues. Our techie could not help. May have to buy new printer.

    I have the same problem, a thick black line running down the middle of the back of the printouts. I guess I'll have to get a new printer. Thanks for saving me hours of diagnostic work!

Same problem. Definitely NOT a leaking cartridge or head. (Replaced both with known good set)

    This is caused by the purge unit or drain tube failing. It is cheaper (and easier) to just replace the printer.

    I have just dismantled one to confirm the diagnosis.

Where the line is on the back of the page, it sounds like some ink may have leaked out from a previous cartridge. While the printer is in the middle of printing, lift the lid and look at the page coming out. See where the line is and you should be able to see where to clean. good luck John

I changed two colour ink cartridges on my Canon iP4200 printer. Now it won't print colour. The pattern check does not print any colour.


You might want to double check to make sure that your printer takes two color cartridges? If I remember correctly, the Pixma takes one black and one color cartridge? If you put a color cartridge in the black ink assembly that would cause it to stop printing.

Double check and make sure that you have one black cartridge in the correct place and one color on the other side.

Look for ink clogged on the printer head. Run cleaning or deep cleaning after installing the new cartridge before printing. Take nozzle check print.
