Printing problem with Pixma MP500

A thick black line almost 1cm across is printing along the underside of some sheets, but not all. It seems to happen worse with the first sheet then gets fainter and disappears after about 5 sheets. The actual printing on the page is fine

It sounds like the black tank/printhead is leaking. If it is, it'll be empty soon. New tank will solve that problem.

When printing on my Canon Pixma MP500, there is a dark black line down the middle of the page. As the pages print, it gets lighter and lighter, but is very dark on the first one. Any thoughts?


Ink tends to overflow at the bottom guide rollers and the roller gets coverd in ink and causes the black line!The best will be to take it to a dealer and have it cleaned!Good Luck!

I HAVE A THICK BLACK LINE THAT PRINTS ON THE BACK OF MY PAPER (VERTICALY) FOR THE FIRST THREE OR FOUR SHEETS OF PAPER THEN FADES AWAY.


Chances are this is caused by leaking ink on the platen. As the paper passes over it each sheet mops up a bit more until it'\s all gone.
Are you using genuine canon carts or lookalikes?

Black line down center of printed page


If the line is on the back, you need to have the machine cleaned, absorbers replaced and a mylar sheet installed so that doesn't happen again. Ink thats supposed to go to the absorber is coming back up on the rollers.

My pixma MP500 printer prints a black solid line at the back of the sheet. what's the problem


Ink is coming up from the bottom from the purge assembly. The hose that should take the ink to the ink absorber makes a pile of hard ink and it overflows instead of being spread. It needs a good cleaning to get rid of the excess ink and a mylar strip to keep it from happening again. 80 to 100 dollar shop repair unless it's under warranty.

Canon MP830 printing with interlacing shades of black


your printer cartridge or head unit ink channel (some of color or black ink channel) constipated, you may try:
1) if your ink cartridge is not new, take out the cartridge put the bottom surface touch cleaner liquid(special for ink printer) or water for 1 hr (you can see ink spread water), then set back and test. refill enough ink maybe necessary.
2) still trouble, you need clean print head ink channel to do same thing above, if your print head is separated from the cartridge.

My Canon Pixma MP500 is printing only black.


Hey, Sound like something is wrong with the color cartridge. Replace the color one and try again. If that fails you might have to replace the printer as it doesn't sound like the problem is software related.
