    When I print I get a thick (3/8 inch or more) black line on the back side of the copy. After I run the cleaning processes, it fades, sometimes even disappears for a copy or two, but then returns.

    Yeah, same problem.

    When I print I get a thick black line on the back side of the copy. I tried running the bottom plate cleaning mode and other cleaning modes with no success.

    I have the same problem. What is the solution?

    I also have the same problem. It appeared for the first time after about two years of use. Is everyone using Canon ink or recycled ink cartridges?

I called the local Canon printer repair facility, and a serviceman said that the black line is caused by too much ink in the ink absorber device below the paper path. He said to fix it requires disassembling part of the printer, replacing the absorber foam, installing a longer tip for the excess ink, and reassembling and testing the printer. I asked if this would be a permanent fix. He said no, that the problem could reoccur as the absorber foam would eventually fill up again.

    This of all is the only right answer and it make sense. So, lets take out the screw drivers, hammer, etc, and try to fix it. I will let you know if I was able to do it.

Canon Pixma MP800 Prints a 1/4" black stripe on back of page. Is emptying the large PGI-5 cartridge in record time. Have replaced cartridge, run cleaning and maintenance routines. Cleaned bottom...


I have seen this before but it has not caused the black to run out quickly. if you look into the machine you will see at one end of the platen roller it will be swimming in ink. As the paper passes over the roller it will deposit ink to the back of the paper. now why is the ink getting there? Well its just possible that air hole in the cartridge is blocked but you say you have replaced the cartridge. Ah but with what? are you using recycled cartridges? they may be filled with ink and not dye which is what originals use. Dye is much thicker than ink and ink maybe leaking from the cartridge. The seal in the carriage may not be making a clean contact with the base of the black cartridge causing it to leak when the carriage is moving. Check those out and repost if still having the problem.
Good luck

Leaking Ink Cartridge


You need a shop to clean the extra ink that's coming up on the rollers and install a mylar strip to prevent that in the future. It's the waste ink being forced up thru the exit rollers and getting on the prints.

My printer is printing a wet black streak on the back of every page...


It means ink is backing up on the rollers, it is waste ink and should be going to the absorber, but some models have the ink drying up and plugging the passages. You will need cleaning, new ink absorbers, and a mylar strip that will keep that from happening in the future.

Nozzle Clogging & Black Cartridge Leaking


Hi e-margaret. There's a bit of confusion here. Horizontal banding is due to LACK of ink flow to the paper. "Splodging" is due to too much. The former can be due to blocked/faulty print head nozzles or a faulty/empty-ish cartridge, or some less common problem like the waste ink pipe blocked. The latter is usually due to a leaking cartridge.

The first job is to mop up ink slopping around under the print head. Cut some strips of kitchen towel and fold them into 3 layers so you have a strip about 2 cm wide. Place them on the print head track. Turn on the printer, and as soon as the print head moves, pull out the power cord from the back of the printer. Now you should be able to move the print head carefully by hand too and fro over the towels. Repeat this with clean towel strips until most of the surplus ink is cleaned up. Remove the towel strips, replug in the power chord and switch the printer back on. Do a head clean cycle and nozzle check 3 or 4 times. If the nozzle check output looks OK, try a test print of a text document

If things are still not OK, report back on what happens in a new comment. If my instructions are not clear enough, please post a new comment asking for clarification.

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.

Black smear of ink at end of lines


Please load the printer with at least 10 sheets of plain paper then press the start button. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains, streaks or smudges are still present, the printer may need service.

Black line on back of page


It sounds like you have a black ink leak and it is smearing onto the paper when you print. I don't know any reasons for this except if you topped the black ink up yourself, and didn't re-block the hole you made. Then I guess the ink would gravity drip onto the paper tray while you weren't printing. Otherwise I would suggest changing the print head, but this might be expensive.
