Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
AWhen using the printer after it has been off for several hours, the first several pages coming through the printer have a heavy black streak (like a tire tread) appearing from top to bottom on the BACK of the printed page. After you run several pages, it finally goes away. It is so heavy that there is ink smeared on the bottom of the printed page delivery tray in alignment where the ink is streaking on the back of the printed pages.

The problem lies with in the waste ink. The way canon have designed the way for the waste ink to get absorbed in a songe, that lies next to the rollers that help the paper out of the printer.
They lie underneith the metal cover if you open the printer lid you will see it.
What happens the waste ink gets to a place where it builds up and up and up, then comes into the area where the rollers lie and so when the paper is fed out you have a black line down the back of your page.
The only way to stop it is by opening up the printer if you know how to, if you dont, dont try it. Then cleaning the roller and blocking the area where the ink is coming in.
Once all that is done you shouldnt have any problems.

This is probably due to miss alignment, there is an option of test page which will be scanned to allign the cartridge, if ur's a all in one printer. This test page is printed at the first time and scanned instantly for first time operation.

Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

looks like problem related with refilled cartridges
are you using refilled cartridges??
if yes then you have to check whether they are leaking or not,
if they are leaking, you have to maintain cleaning level
thats all you can do
