Question about Canon Pixma Ix6550 A3 Inkjet Printer
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.
1) Complete cleaning using copressed air or lint free cloth
2) check the cleaning blade on your drum (Round Glass cylinder)3) Change your drum unit
4) replace rollers

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!

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

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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org so I can contact you as soon as I finish my post there.
