This is a fairly common problem. More common when you use junk cartridges from printcountry.com.
1) you will need some cotton swabs, isopropyl alcohol and "canned air" or any pressurized computer cleaner.
2) lift up the top console while the unit is on and wait for the cartridges to reset to the center position.
3)Release the grey lock on the LH side of the cartridges and remove cartridges.
4) take alcohol soaked swabs and clean bottom of ports and nozzles.
5) blow out with air.
6) go into program and run clean and align programs. (if you don't have them go to google and type canon mp830 support)
8) if this doesn't work, give to someone you hate or throw out window.

Does it do it on prints aswell as copies?
If so open up the Left hand side door if you peer inside at the fuser (hot bit) can you see any damage. if so needs replacement.
Also could be the drum, look in the same area at the green/blue cylinder, these do up to approx 30,000 pages.
Hope this helps.

ink is coming up from below where it shouldn't and coating the exit rollers. It will need a good cleaning and a mylar shield to prevent ink coming up in the future. An $80.00 repair in our shop.

Your black ink seems to have spilled a bit at the nozzle. The fact is even if you do nothing it should seize staining the back of the paper after a while, so long as the spill is only temporal. But if you want it over with quickly, you may try printing quite good number of pages till you see that the stops. With every print you will most certainly observe that the stain will reduce. Otherwise if you can reach into the printer with a stick or something, you may try to clean it.

That sounds like the ink is coming off the waste ink absorbers. Try blotting the excess ink off the bottom of the printer with paper towels. The ink absorbers are small pads at the bottom of the paper feed path. With work, you can pull them pads and rinse them clean and then reinstall them when dry. Unfortunately, this can take almost disassembling the printer. Simply absorbing some of the excess is a temporary step.
I hope this helps.
(there is a counter that indicates when (based on average use) the waste ink absorber is full. The printer will stop working when that number is reached. Unfortunately, I haven't seen a reset for this model that actually works.)
