Question about Canon Pixma MP800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Black print is skipping

The black print (large tank) prints sharp for approximately a 1/2 inch (2-1/2 lines) of print and then has no print for the next 1/2" and then prints beautifully again.

I replaced the print head and large black ink cartridge. No improvement.

Thanks!

David

    This occurred half way through a **** of HP premium Ink Jet paper, however I just tried a piece of linen stationary and a piece of card stock with the same problem.

    Thanks! David

    The problem is not a blur. it is a repeating 2-1/2 lines of print followed by a no printing at all of the same distance. Very regular.

    Occurs in all settings, high quality to fast.

    This started a few days ago 2-3 pages into printing a document.

The carriage cable connecting the print head to the engine board is probably at fault. Make sure it is properly connected at both ends. Also make sure the contacts connecting the printhead to the carriage are in place, clean, and not damaged.

Sounds like only half your printheads are firing.

Do the colors print ok? It's only black?

    The black printhead is probably setup in two parts, each about half an inch in lenght. One of those arrays is not getting an electrical signal. I've seen this happen with the traces on the board the printheads are on got chipped and cut off from the printer. If you have a new head though the problem is in the ribbon cable, contacts in the carriage, or the engine board itself. Start with the contacts and the ribbon cable.

Could be a paper problem

    For example if the printer is set up for standard paper and you use glossy paper the ink may blur in the middle of document, check your printer settings. Eventually see if the problem happens when you use your printer on a lower resolution settings.
    If it is not a setting and media problem, it can be a traction problem.

    It is the traction , it is a mechanical fault. If the printout does print empty lines at regular distance in the document, then is a problem with the traction, as the rollers are pulling paper not in synchrony with the printing job done by the heads.
    The only simple maintenance you can try on this is cleaning the rollers with cleaning solution, but I do not think this will help.
    Your printer mechanics need a partial dis-assemblage to discover were the problem is.
    Also check if you have a setting called "prevent paper abrasion" in your printer properties (it is there only on some pixma model). If it is checked un check it, it diminish the roller traction force on paper.
    If you decide to bring it to a service point out that it may be a traction problem of this kind, usually no replacement part is required for this kind of service, that therefore should not be too expensive.

    regards

Remove each of these assy and inspect them for wear or lines that corespond to the lines on your prints.

Black line is present when copying document; not


This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

Large black ink tank is not being used by the printer.


The little cartridges are pigment for photo printing. The Large black cart is ink for plain paper (usually text) printing. If you select a photo paper in the print setup menu, you will use very little of the ink.
To check the function of the large cart print out a test sheet from the printer maintenance menu. You may need to run a head cleaning to get all the nozzles to work.

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.

Canon MP830 - extreme ink useage


According to a service manual for a similar Canon printer, the grayscale printing should only use the Pigment Black ink PGI-5BK.

On fast it is 300x300dpi with 1 pass, standard is 600x600dpi with 1 pass and high is 600x600 with 4 passes.

On plain paper in colour it is meant to still only use the C/M/Y and again the big pigment black ink PGI-5BK, it only uses the smaller black ink once you set it to use a photo type paper in the printing settings.
