Question about Canon Pixma MP950 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon MP950 - strong black line on back side of the paper. It looks like it just spreads black color on the back side of the paper while printing. Even when i just use "clean heads" options - it still appears. I can even see how black ink appears on the mechanisms while printing... as if printer doesnt control flow of black ink at all. Dont know what to do. Problem with head or with cartridge? Clean manually or remove?

The problem is most likely your ink catcher, it is a sponge that catches any ink when it is being cleaned. you need to remove it and clean it then put it back in. there will be instructions in your manual.

MP950 printer gets a 6A00 error on power up -


Hi
Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Canon mp950 printer unprnted streaks width wise - as if the paper is crolled too far for next line


I think your problem is blocked print head, try this.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.

Canon Pixma MP 800 printing Issue (heavy black line on opposite side of print page


I have exactly the same problem with a Canon Pixma MP800, I have cleaned the rollers, changed the ink cartridges and reset the printer. It will print a few pages cleanly then dump black ink on the roller which leaves a heavy black line on the back of the page. It fades away after printing about 10 pages and then a few pages later appears again. The printer is two years old and it looks as if I must buy another. Should I buy another Canon?
