Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer is putting a 1/2 dark black line on the back of the pages

When I print pages, there is a 1/2 inch black line from top to bottom on the back of the page about 1/3 of the way across from the side edge of the paper - there appears to be black ink on rollers ejecting the paper?

    i have always used canon cartridges, i found another post that mentioned cleaning the ink pads? i am going to call the printer repair shop in the morning to see what they would recommend.

    thanks!

    I have exactly the same problem with my MP830. I only use original Canon cartridges. Have tried endlessly cleaning the roller and bottom plate. Have also tried replacing the black cartidges, but no improvement.



    There is no obvious sign of ink leakage.The place where the cartridge sits is completely dry when you take it out.

    I recently started to have this problem with the black ink streak down the entire center of the back of the page but only with 8 x 10 so far. I also tried cleaning the rollers and the platen with no change. I'm wasting a lot of paper and probably black toner also.

Dear friend

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

thanks

When you print each page has a gray/black line running down the page from top to bottom about 2.5 inches from the edge of the paper. Sometimes it is darker and other times it is lighter. We have tried...


While the line is showing up on the output pages.
Stop printing and put paper in the manual feed tray (tray 1).
Start printing again. As a page gets pulled into the printer about 1/2 way open the top cover.
Pull out the toner and look at the page inside the printer. If it doesn't have the grey/black line, get the fuser replaced. It is defective.

You need to either call a repair tech and have the printer serviced for routine maintenance or order a maintenance kit from Lexmark to do the job yourself.

Just curious, what is the page count on the printer? When was the last time the entire print cartridge was replaced?

That is ink or dirt on the rollers, you need to clean them by lifting the lid, as if you were putting new ink in, and wipeing the rollers that the paper runs through.

I put a new ink cartrige and printer prints low coulour tone.


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.

My printer wont write, it only prints out the images and colour


Here's the fix for the black not printing...Take the black ink cartridge out and punch a hole in the round dark circle at top right of cartridge with an ice pick or something sharp. Blow in the hole and make sure you have something under it just in case the ink starts dropping. Clean the bottom and put it back in and it should work.

Printing out thepictures


Try printing the picture from another program. Or with less resolution.
If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the printer and downloading the latest drivers from the HP website.
