Sounds like a bad ink cartridge. The ink is probably clogged up in the print head where the ink comes out of the cartridge. You should either bring it back to where you purchased it for a replacement, or you can try priming the ink.

To prime the ink:
1. Get a wet paper towel
2. Get a dry paper towel
3. Take the bad ink out of your printer
4. Move the ink back and forth from the wet towel to the dry towel touching the print head (part on cartridge where the ink comes out) to the towel.
5. You should begin to see the ink come out in a higher consistency

This will help unclog any ink stuck in the pores of the print head. If that doesn't work, you may need to get a replacement from where you purchased it.

Hope this helps :)

Solid wet black line on back of pages

What happens when you print with single sided document selected in the preferences? Is there more than one MX850 printer driver showing in the Printers & Faxes (This is Windows ?? XP ? 95 ? ). If so delete all of them and reinstall. Otherwise I would check a printhead alignment from the Maintenance menu to see if that solves it.

Printer prints black line on every page as well as the document

a solid line on every page is either a defective toner cartridge or imaging drum. since you did not specify your printer type and model, I can only go by general print quality generalities. A Void can be caused by other things, such as a bad printhead or dirt on the print head, but a line is usually caused by a defect on the imaging unit, developer, or toner cartridge (on units with a toner cartridge, the developer and imaging unit are enclosed in the cartridge).

I assume that you mean color images are being produced in black and white. If that's the case, there's a document on the HP web site that shows you what to look for and provides solutions:

My Sharp Copier AR-5320 print black and white horizontal parallel lines on the documents.

Check for scratches on the drum surface. If you have ran a lot of copies on there, its a good time to get it serviced. It could be the cleaning blade on the drum as well.
