Question about Computers & Internet

Printer problem I have a Canon LBP-4 Lite printer and recently it started leaving about a 4 inch wide grey streak down the length of the paper. The cartridge seems like it has ink in it so really hate to replace it if the problem is elsewhere. Have no idea where the owners manual is so any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance. Tara

Copy is smearing from top to bottom on left side of paper about 1 inch wide.


The print in the smudged area, does it wipe off the page like not fused well to the paper. Do you also have a crinkling noise, if so the sleeve in the fixing assembly has torn. You may still have it under warranty with canon and can get it fixed for free.
Good luck

Printer prints a black streak down the reverse side


You have a build up of ink inside the printer. I had a Canon that did this. I had to take the ink & print head out, and tear a paper towel strip 1 " wide and 13" long or however long the paper towel is. I folded it in half down the length so it was 1/2x13. Then used a plastic strip to shove it under the part the print head sits in. Once I got the towel to the other side, I grabbed it with my hand. I removed the plastic strip used to shove the paper towel under. So now the paper towel sticks out both sides underneath the print head cradle. I gently pull the paper towel back and forth so the paper towel can clean off the ink build up. Hope this helps.

Wide black streak on back of printed paper


Hi,

it is not directly coming from the head. Probably you are printing your photos without borders. This means that the printer prints slightly beyond he paper. As a consequence is sprays ink on the mechanics and after a while it starts to smear on the back of the paper.

This phenomenon is even mentioned in the printer manual (kind of caution when selecting borderless printing).

There is a menu item in the printer utilities that lets you clean the printer mechanics with a folded paper. I tried this, but it helps only little.

I have the same effect on a pixma IP 4500 , and I live with it.

Cheers
