Question about Canon PIXMA IP5200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Black streak on back of page.

Every time the printer primes itself, the next few pages get a fat black line on the back. Cleaning the ink off the roller only fixes the problem until the next time the printer primes itself again. Also, it's not easy to clean the roller between the moment the printer primes itself and when it prints the first page.

Why is the printer pumping ink onto the roller, and how can I get it to stop doing it? Or is the ink getting onto the roller from something else?

That's the problem that needs to be fixed.

Thanks!

It is possible that the ink parking station where the heads prime themselves is clogged or full, all ink bled through the heads when priming runs of from here to a resevoir and once this is full you could get spill off that gets transferred through to the rollers. Only way out of this is having the printer serviced, or stripping and servicing the printer yourself.(dirty and messy job)

This issues looking printer head problem. check the following Steps for cleaning printer head :

Click on the Start button if you have Windows XP. If you have Windows Vista, click the Windows icon that resides in the lower left corner of your computer screen.

Click on "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware." Finally click on "View Installed Printers or Fax Printers."

Right-click on the name of your printer and choose "Printing Preferences." This should open a new window; next look for a tab or button marked Maintenance, or something similar.

Find the button that says "Print heads" or "Clean the Print heads" and click on it. You may be asked to choose which print heads; choose them all if you are. Make sure there is paper and ink in your printer, and that it is turned on ahead of time.

Take out the page your printer has printed and see if there are any grids or boxes missing. If there aren't, then you can just exit the program--your print heads are not clogged. If there are grids missing, then click on the "Cleaning" or similarly worded button.

Once the cleaning process has completed, print another page to be sure that your print heads are no longer clogged. If they are still clogged, repeat Steps 1-5 until your printer is printing clearly.

Pink and blue streaks on right side of page


most probably your "soak" pad need exchange. check your manual and change it. when you "deep clean" heaps of ink is absorbed into the pad exacerbating the problem, not solving it.

remove cartridges first and check them for existence of any foreign matter,

check for presence of debris under the head and parking place, remove if any,

i would suggest cleaning of printheads, albeit this can be risky (check first if your ink is soluble in water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit, use that which solve your ink without clumping as cleaning agent), remove cartridges and allow appriopriate solvent to sit few second on metal rasters, wipe them with clean absorbing tissue and repeat procedure till solvent is "sinking" through the net.

remove old and install new absorbent pad under the print heads,

re-install inks, print rest page and then "normal" page. ink on first test page maybe very weak as solvent need to go through first.

if you follow the steps correctly, your should have clean print on the end.

"deep cleaning" is just waste of time, effort and ink. it is better if you create yourself a document with alternative lines of all three basic colours and black and then print it.

Lexmark z2300m....black printing suddenly started streaking. Prints first 6 lines then streaks on rest of page. Nozzle cleaning and manual cleaning didn't help.


Your best bet is to buy new ink cartridges.

Ensure that the entire assembly is cleaned thoroughly though, just to be sure. Nozzle cleaning is rarely useful.

My printer is printing a wet black streak on the back of every page...


It means ink is backing up on the rollers, it is waste ink and should be going to the absorber, but some models have the ink drying up and plugging the passages. You will need cleaning, new ink absorbers, and a mylar strip that will keep that from happening in the future.

Printing Streaky


Most likely the printer has been sitting for along time not used or you have used cheap replacement ink. Epsons are notorious for clogging the jets with cheap ink. unfortunately replacing the ink cartridges will not help because the jets are seperate from them. If cleaning numerous times does not work your next best bet is to buy a cleaning ink cartridge for your model. otherwise youll need a new printhead or new printer. If your going to use cheap replacement cartridges stay away from epson.

Turn off the device after removing the printhead After removing the printhead, turn off the device, wait about 20 seconds, and turn it on again without the printhead installed. After it has restarted, reinsert the printhead.

it will go through this long routine of perhaps 20 min or so. after its compleate it should print great.

The problem lies with in the waste ink. The way canon have designed the way for the waste ink to get absorbed in a songe, that lies next to the rollers that help the paper out of the printer.
They lie underneith the metal cover if you open the printer lid you will see it.
What happens the waste ink gets to a place where it builds up and up and up, then comes into the area where the rollers lie and so when the paper is fed out you have a black line down the back of your page.
The only way to stop it is by opening up the printer if you know how to, if you dont, dont try it. Then cleaning the roller and blocking the area where the ink is coming in.
Once all that is done you shouldnt have any problems.

Streaks / Bands of broken print area


First with a clean soft cloth and a very small amt of alcohol clean off the underside of the printer carridge (the holder for the print heads) also where the print heads cleaning station is clean out any large masses of congealed link. Then remove the ink cartridge in question and with a pencil eraser gently rub the contacts and both the cartridge and the carridge replace the cartridge. Using the software tools for the printer clean and align the printheads ( if there is an option to do so). If this dosn't fix the problem try a different ink cartridge.
