Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have the same problem - thick, saturated line on back of paper. I can find ink on one of the paten rollers - so something is leaking. I changed the printer cartridges, but no help
Hi there. You aren't alone. I have included a lot of information here, much of which is from an authorized Canon tech.
During excessive printing, ink does not get absorbed into ink pads fast enough causing a build up of ink on the platen roller and the exit rollers.
Canon techs are instructed to replace the ink absorbers with a modified kit that includes a silicon tube, plastic joint, and mylar sheet. The shape of the waste ink pad has been changed to prevent the ink build up.
If you have a mind to do it yourself and your not under warranty you can purchase the blotter kits at beckscrs.com and I believe the part number is QY5-0146-000. You can download a user manual at www.alfons-servis.narod.ru.
I'm going to be real honest with you, though....it is a LOT less complicated, time-consuming and expensive to just buy a NEW printer.
I hope this helps. If not, let me know.
