Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Everytime I print I get a black line down the back of the page. I have cleaned the bottom plate using the bottom plate cleaning function button. It appears that the large black ink is leaking maybe? If I'm printing more then one page the line gets lighter and lighter. If it's rested the line is dark again and very wet. Any clues on how to fix this would be appreciated.
Your problem is not isolated; I read of two others on this site in mid-August 2008 and added my own post.
I contacted Canon Support and tried their solution (which you've already tried); it did not work. Given the choice of repairing a printer that I've had (and babied) for less than 2 years or buying a new Canon at a discount under their Loyalty Program, I chose to take my MP530 to a Canon Authorized Repair Facility.
According to the repair tech, there is a problem with the waste ink tank and ink absorber pads. The repair facility ordered and installed a rebuild kit; it took about 2 weeks. The printer now works beautifully again.
If your printer is still under warranty, you're in luck. If not, ask that it be handled as a warranty repair. In my opinion, Canon should recalling and offering to fix this problem free of charge.
