Center of page is not printing black

The center of everything I print is not printing in black it is printing on the outside 2 in of each side and leaving the middle faded to the point it is not printed. All other colors are working just fine and will print.

    I have the same problem, but I am also getting the color registration error. Even though I have tried to change out the black cartridge and to follow the instructions for adjusting the color registration, the printing is not working.

I changed out our black photoconductor unit #165 and it solved the problem. Even though the error message did not say that the photoconductor needed changed out, it had been eight months since the last replacement. I hope this helps!

The pages are printing off center.


A black section down one side of the page could be a couple of things.
1) The Corona Wire Cleaner (The sliding piece on top of the Drum Unit normally either Green or Blue) is not at it's correct rest spot which is where the arrow on the slider and the arrow on the drum unit meet.
2) There is something stuck on the drum or in the laser. Check that there is no scraps of paper caught up in the workings.

Printing too far to one side can be caused by a misalignment of the laser. Turning the machine off for a few minutes may rectify the problem. Otherwise the paper is placed in the tray off-center. Make sure the paper uides on the tray are set snug on the paper.

Hope that helps

X2250 won't print form pc


A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:
1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks." Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page.
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.
If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:
1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.

Good Luck!!!!

The black ink has stopped printing. Put in two different new cartridges and that doesn't seem to be the problem. It was first noticed when photos were printing out funny even after changing the color...


Make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges.
Try to clean the cartridge nozzles. Refer to the steps below:

Cleaning the Print Cartridge Nozzles:

1. Open the Lexmark Solution Center. Click Start > Programs or All Programs > Lexmark 1300 Series. Select Solution Center.


2. From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.

3. Click Print. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.

4. Print the document again to verify that print quality has improved.


Using the control panel

1. Press Menu.

2. Press the down arrow button until you highlight Clean Cartridge.

3. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.

4. Print the document again to verify that print quality has improved.

Black line along the right side near the center when copying ONLY


first, the line are in all printing pages, or only when you make copies?,
if the line are in all printing pages, maybe your fuser has damage the fuser film sleeve,(aprox, 10-20 dlls), if only this line are when you make copies, maybe the glass in the scanner are dirty(clean and try).
i expect this solution your problem

Canon Pixma MP 800 printing Issue (heavy black line on opposite side of print page


I have exactly the same problem with a Canon Pixma MP800, I have cleaned the rollers, changed the ink cartridges and reset the printer. It will print a few pages cleanly then dump black ink on the roller which leaves a heavy black line on the back of the page. It fades away after printing about 10 pages and then a few pages later appears again. The printer is two years old and it looks as if I must buy another. Should I buy another Canon?
