Nozzle is clogged.. run the deep cleaning utility on your printer driver..

On your pc, go to control panel then go to printers and faxes..
right click on the Canon PIXMA i8500 icon then go to printing preferences... go to the maintenance tab then run the deep cleaning utility... =)

should fix up the problem.. if not better call up canon tech support for warranty options, because its most probably hardware now if the steps above does not work...

have fun..

Your ink cartridges are probably past their virtual "expiration date" so the ink has become more viscous, allowing the ink to flow for a short time and then stop until it settles back to the vent/opening where it is put on the paper.

When I run anything through the rollers I get a black line down my copy/scan. How do I fix this? I have cleaned the rollers and it didn't fix my problem.


only thing I know is when my copier/printer was doing this it was from refilled ink cartridges. if you are using refilled try replacing with new ones.

Where do I open my printer in order to put my new ink in. I don't know what I do.


you need to open the top of the cannon printer there should be a place for your ink. I am not sure what it looked like but it should fit in there some place.

Do you have ink in the cartridges? Just because the computer says there is ink does not mean there really is ink.

Try making a copy and see if it copies. That will tell you if you have ink. Just go to the canon all in one and place something on it to copy and press copy from the controls panel on the printer.

HP OfficeJet J5780 Vertical Black Line Prints when copying or scaning only. Cleaned rollers and changed black ink cartrigde. Still problem.


Have you tried cleaning the document feeders Scan Glass? (small glass under doc feeder ~ 1" by 9") Most times there is dirt spot on this glass, causing a shadow on scans and copies.
Try copying from the large glass by lifting doc feeder / platen cover and manually placing original. If no line copying or scanning manually from large glass, then small scan glass is deffenitely the culprit. Hope this helps.

Have you tried to get it to print anything else? Like one of the internal reports, or just a document from your computer. That will determine if it can print at all.
Once you can establish that it can (or can't) print, then you can troubleshoot other items.

You did mention that you only use it a few times a week, it could be that the cartridge has dried up, or the print nozzle has become blocked.

Try the tests, and please inform.

Blank pages coming out of i850 with new printhead


Alarm / Power light flashes orange 7 times consecutively is a Print head error so it sounds like you did the right thing.

I would reseat the printhead along with each one of the ink cartridges. Make sure that you removed the tape from the bottom of each of the ink cartridges and try it again. After installing the new printhead, you should have run a printhead cleaning cycle immediately after installing.

Issue: Certain colors are missing or no ink prints on the paper
Solution: Install / replace the recommended ink tanks correctly i550 / i850

Untitled Document How to install / replace the ink tanks
The ink tanks suitable for the printer are as follows;


Black Ink Tank BCI-3eBK
Cyan Ink Tank BCI-3eC
Magenta Ink Tank BCI-3eM
Yellow Ink Tank BCI-3eY


Note: There are two ink tank label designs.
Operation procedures are shown with label design A.

1. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

2. Remove the empty ink tank by pushing the tab on the ink tank.

Note: When doing this, do not remove the print head. When replacing multiple ink tanks, it is recommended to replace one at a time to avoid inserting them into the wrong slots.
(The image is an example using i850.)

3. Remove the new ink tank from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove it completely, and remove the shrink-wrap film.

Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the tape remains, printing may not be performed properly.

Confirm that the orange tape is completely removed from the ink tank, as shown in image 1. If the tape is similar to the sample in image 2, remove the remaining portion of the tape so that it looks like the sample shown in image 1.

orangetape.jpg
(1): Correct

(2): Incorrect (where the arrow indicates)
4. Slowly twist the orange protective cap in the direction that the arrow indicates, and remove it. To avoid ink adhering to your fingers, brace the orange protective cap while removing it.

5. Insert the new ink tank to the print head by holding it at a slight angle.

Note: Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the right order according to the labels on the print head.

6. Press down on the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

7. Close the front cover. The next time the printer performs printing, it will automatically start print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash while cleaning is performed. Until cleaning completes, do not perform other operations.
