Question about Canon Pixma Ix6550 A3 Inkjet Printer

1 Answer

Scuff/score lines down print plus central grip mark

I am using Marrutt 230gsm matt archival paper for limited edition prints of artwork. When I print there are vertical lines, evenly spaced running down the image plus what looks to be a scuff mark where I assume the paper is gripped for feed, it is about 2.5 in down the middle of the A4 sheet. I have tried doing the automated roller clean. Please advise. If I can not solve this issue the printer will be of little use to me. Thanks for any assistance.

SOURCE: canon pixma mp780 - vertical line on printing

Not sure if this will help but there is a small glass panel to the left of your flatbed scanner- this must be clean or else I get a black vertical line in my printing.

SOURCE: paper feed issues

Yeah i tried the cardboard as well...it didnt work first time. but as i had no other choice, i did it 2-3 more times and eventually i heard a lot of noise and to my surprise my mailbox key popped out covered in ink...
so the cardboard seems to be the magical solution. not only does the printer work again but i also found my key!

SOURCE: printer will not feed paper / message E2 ...cannon pixma mp 160

don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
someone replied to my problem, i tried it and its fixed 1st time, for others its taken a few attempts and then worked..
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving PUSH it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now. hope this helps, let me know how you get on. Garty

SOURCE: Vertical black line running length of the paper

I have a PIXMA iP5200 with the vertical black ink smear problem down the back of the paper. I called the local Canon printer repair facility, and a serviceman said that the black line is caused by too much ink in the ink absorber device below the paper path. He said to fix it would cost $60 to $90 because it requires disassembling part of the printer, replacing the absorber foam, installing a longer tip for the excess ink, and reassembling and testing the printer. I asked if this would be a permanent fix. He said no, that the problem could reoccur.

Given the cost of repair and the age of the printer (over 3 years), I decided today to buy a Canon MX850 All-in-One printer at the local Staples, which cost me $169 after a $30 mail-in rebate from Canon. The MX850 uses the same printer cartridges as the iP5200 and offers lots more features

Except for the recent printing problem, I got excellent results and service from the iP5200 over the time I used it.

SOURCE: Printer feeds in 2 or 3 sheets of paper at a time and then jams

Dears eveenz,
It seems that paper feed roller of your printer is broken. This part is integrated in drive assy. You need to replace drive assy of the printer in order to feed the paper properly. I plan to discuss this topic at Inkjet Printer Forum since I cannot post image more than 150 kb here. Explanation with image will make you know more easily. Please send me your mail to ijxpert@gmail.com so I can contact you as soon as I finish my post there.
Please rate me when you find this answer be useful for you

How do I print photos from my cd using hp Photosmart plus?


Don't Connect the printer. First use the cd to install the software for your printer. in the software is a program called print photos or print pictures. After installing the software, connect the printer and switch it on. Start the software and a menus should guide you trough he straps to choose and print the pictures you want to print. Be aware you need to setup things once the program is running, like how big the pictures should be. Don't make them bigger than the paper you insert. Also what kind of paper you use, like plane paper, or photo paper, matte or glossy.

My printer has problems printing dark colours. When printing pictures or text, it leaves horizontal lines on black only. I have a continuis ink system which has lots of black. Any ideas?


Try changing the print paper type to something other than plain paper. Use the matte paper setting, or the photo glossy. The printer will lay down more ink at these specialty settings.

You are probably using a glossy paper or photo paper 230gsm or above, some printers are having a hard time feeding with those kind of papers, try using lower than 230 gsm.

Make sure you check the settings in the print driver. Sounds like your paper size settings do not match the size of the paper that you are printing onto and you are actually getting a false jam because the machine is seeing a different size paper then you ahve in it.

R1800 Borderless Printing Problem


Hi Tom, Have you downloaded the latest driver from the Epson web site. Also make sure the output tray is in the correct position and that you are using the correct paper. You can use the following media with this feature: Matte Paper - Heavyweight A3+, A3, A4 Premium Glossy Photo Paper A3+, A3, A4, 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 in.), 329 mm x 10 m, 210 mm x 10 m (Roll paper) Premium Semigloss Photo Paper A3+, A3, A4, 329 mm x 10 m, 210 mm x 10 m, 100 mm x 8 m (Roll paper) Archival Matte Paper A3+, A3, A4 Watercolor Paper-Radiant White A3+ Velvet Fine Art Paper A3+ Ensure the output tray is in the correct position as if the tray is too low and the paper "falls" down into the tray the weight of the paper could pull the last few millimeters of paper out of the exit rollers, causing the band.

Paper Jam with no Jam


You may have overloaded your paper feeder with heavy card stock and caused a very tiny jam that you have not found yet so that it will act oddly as it is. Look right up inside unit with a torch and down back where the paper goes in.Try printing on plain a4 agian, place a small stack in feeder, reset paper guides too. Also could be your paper sensor, fixable under warranty.
