Question about Konica Minolta Magicolor 2530 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Magicolor 2530 DL

We are experiencing straight line streaks in the same place from the top to the bottom of the page. The streak is around a 16th of an inch wide. We were printing and everything was fine then it just started to streak. We turned the printer on and off and it is not as bright of a streak but it is very visible. Our toner is getting low but we can't change it until it is empty. Appreciate any help. Thank you.

    Two verticle ghost white colored lines in my pages when printing colored pages. I have cleaned the laser plate/glass and wiped down the transfer belt, the drum says 44% and has had no issues until now and still I get the lines on all of my print outs. I have adequate toner and they do not seem to be the issue. It is a refurb printer, yeah replaced the faulty NEW one with a frefurb I now have for 6 months.

The streaks are typically a sign of a toner drum going bad, or possibly just dirty, or even caused by the toner being low, as you have mentioned it to be. 1 way I know to 'clean' the drums is to have the printer run multiple blank pages. If your software will not allow you to print blank pages, type a single character by using this little trick, hold down the ALT key, and type 2 5 5 on the number pad in a blank text document. This will allow you to print the "blank" document, I would suggest about 10 copies. This should help for a short duration, and doesn't use any toner.

Hope this helps!

What causes streaky copies

A few questions:
- Did this problem just start?

- Was there a paper jam and when the paper was dislodged the next few sheets were streaked? Running a few more pages usually clears this.

- Is this a new toner cartridge? Did you just change the cartridge? Are you low on toner? Try removing the cartridge and gently rocking it back and forth, side to side. This will distribute the toner more evenly.

- Is this a heavier weight paper then previously used? Try going back to the old weight and see if the problem continues.

I have a streak from top to bottom of page that is about a 16th of an inch wide that does not print. What part needs replaced and where do I purchase it?

Sounds like a printer head problem. Take it to a shop where they normally refill printer cartridge inks, and get them to service your printer head.

This is more than likely down to the upper roller in the fuser assembly. It's the heat roller at the back of the printer. The upper roller wears so paper dust and toner stick to the roller which then can get deposited back on to the page.

There are 3 parts to the imaging process that could cause your issue. You have the toner (x4), the imaging drum unit (Q3964A) and the fuser unit. If you are getting streaks from all colors, one or more these parts are the issue.

Let's start with the easy stuff:

Open the cover as if you were replacing toner where you can "visually" inspect the toner and imaging drum. Pull the drum out and pull back the "plastic shutter" on the top, this will expose a green drum CAUTION! Too much exposure to light and touching it can cause damage. Just take a quick look trying to see if any of the lines on your page match any marks on the drum. Check the bottom half of the unit as well there should be a white section across the bottom, expect that as well.

Next look at the toner, if you can look at any other color but black it will help you look for the streak marks a lot easeier. If you couldn't see any streaks on the drum on toner cartridges, it's time to look at the fuser unit. Power the machine down and turn it around, unplug it then fold down the blue clips and CAUTION! the fuser heats the toner to the page so if it's been used recently it may be hot. once the clips are down, just pull straight back and look for the streak marks.

Sorry for the book, but I hope it helps.

Faded-out streak

check your ink levels. if its the ink that came with the printer it is probable running out of ink. they do not give a full cartridge with printers, only about 3rd full. also try cleaning the heads. and try changing your printer settings/prefrences to less ink, more drytime see if that helps.

Horizontal streaks on pages

Streaks at 2.82 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the fusing roller of the printer. In some cases, these marks can be cleared up by running a cleaning page through the unit. Laser Printer Cleaning sheets can be purchased at your local printer/office supply store. If the marks persist, this can indicate a more serious problem with the fusing roller that would require service attention.

Streaks at 3.74 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the image drum of the printer. There is no way to repair a damaged photosensitive image drum, so in the case that it is scratched or otherwise damaged, the entire CRU (toner/drum cartridge) would require replacement to clear up these marks.
