IP4200 leaks line of black ink on back of pages

I've had two iP4200 printers. Both developed same leakage problem - a black line prints on the back of every document, sometimes light, sometimes heavy. Both printers were not that old or heavily used. This is a pattern sugggesting a design flaw or inherent weakness of a part. Is there a fix for this?

There is a fix, design flaw as you say. You need a new ink absorber kit which includes a mylar strip so it won't happen again. What's happening is the waste ink from the purge assembly is pumped over to the center of the absorber pads and when it dries it stops the flow and it backs up thru the exit rollers.

Installed new ink on ip4200. Black will not print on test page "horizontal box", other colors print. Any suggestion on why the black won't print? Thanks.


The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.
  1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

  2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (A), it is properly removed.

  3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (B), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (A).

  4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

I keep getting a black line on the back of most printed pages


Hi there
This is a leak from the ink or it is your waste ink pads full, you will have to clean all the inside out, the ink getting on to the rollers.

Big black vertical line on back of the paper.PIXMA CanoniP4200


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.

Printer always uses large black & runs out, cant isolate other


The BK5 is for black text only. The other black ink is used for shades of black/gray together with the three basic colors in printing color photos. You cannot use it to print black text.
