SOURCE: Printer is leaving black ink marks all over paper.

Running cardstock lightly misted with water or dilute cleaning solution through several times can help. Use either the feed button or print using a program that allows you to print blank pages.

SOURCE: Black ink is faint

First I would suggest performing any head alignment functions with your printer's menu to be sure you have the stepper motor feed adjusted properly. Use the paper you are currently printing on for this procedure so that the thickness of that paper is factored in.
If you stil see the banding after doing this, you can use the Advanced Media Control button under Printer Settings in ColorBurst to fine-tune the paper feed adjustment. Print out the "Media Advance.tif" target (located in the ColorBurst/images & Targets folder) to use as a guide. For white bands, you'll need to enter a negative number (to shorten the paper feed).

How do I get rid of black marks are appearing on my printing with my Lexmark C544


Are the black marks in the same place on every print. If so, then it could be that the paper feed rollers have got black ink on them, this will need to be checked and if this is the case then it's a simple case of just cleaning them, some kitchen roll and mild soapy water and drying.

Then test the print quality.

Has then been happening since you last changed the black print cartridge. If so it could be a badly fitted cartridge or damaged cartridge. To check to see if the cartridge is fitted badly, take the cartridge out and try re-fitting it carefully, whilst you have it out of the printer you should check to see if there is any ink leakage from the cartridge, is there is then it's time to get a replacement.

Hope this helps, good luck.

You may need a newer cartridge
See if the printhead has any abnomal markings.
You can compare it with the color printhead.
If the printhead is good, see if the ink is flowing through the printhead.
Fill the ink cartridge to maximum
Squeeze the sides of the ink cartridge, ink should flow out.
If ink is flowing out, remove any excessive ink with a paper towel.
Install ink cartridges, do NOT do any cleaning cycle.
Since your black cartridge is full, cleaning may cause it not to print.
Do some black copy operations.

When printing on my Canon PixMA iP4500 printer I get a 3/16'' black stripe down the back of the page which ruins the page and uses excessive ink.


Thank-you for clarification.
Because the line or marks are on the back of the paper I suspect that it may be a faulty ink cartridge. Your first step would be to press te paper feed button on the printer; it should send a clean page through. If the markings are there then you must inspect the printer for any hidden pools of ink. clean all the areas with methyl hydrate, including rollers. Replace the black cartridge with a new one. I suspect that your current cartridge is one that you have had refilled. A refill is very economical but sometimes they damage the fill port seal allowing air pressure to push the ink out causing a pool of ink. Because the ark is allways at the RHS, were the printer jet assembly parks itself I suspectyou will find the pool of ink at that side. It would eventually drip itself dry. Buy a new cartidge.

Cannon Pixma MP500- I get a solid black line on the reverse side of a printed page. Went through all the cleaning procedures and new cartridge, no change.


For some reason, the printer is designed to dump ink into the bottom of the tray before feeding on the paper. The paper is then dragged over the ink, leaving the black line. This is a software issue, not a hardware one. I'd advise that you update all of your print drivers, as well as your firmware.

A temporary fix is to clean the rollers and base plate of the printer for ink spills.

Check for any bits of paper or debris that may be caught in the printer. Be careful to feed in the paper perfectly straight, as this printer does not have good rollers, and it will cause paper to break off and cause problems. If any debris has caught or absorbed ink, it will cause the back of the paper to smudge, and you have black lines.

Prints roller smear marks


Laser printers do not use Ink. The problem is most likely a defect on the drum, which in this model printer, is part of the toner cartridge. Replace the black toner cartridge with a known good one and test.
