Does this streaking problem occur when printing (not copying)? If it does then you are probably looking at a consumable issue. Alot of times black streaking is caused by a defective or spent drum. Is your drum new? There is also a blue piece on the drum unit used to clean the corona wire that cleans the drum. Have you tried moving it back and forth several times?

If the problem only happens when copying and the streaks are as bad as you make them out to be then you problem have a bad CIS unit (scans your originals for faxing or copying)

Black streaks on both side of paper when copy on glass


Throwing the machine away is the best recommendation. You have a bad drum/developer that is leaking some toner. Could be a bad cleaner blade for streaks on the front; fallen toner for streaks on the back. Careful cleaning, replace transfer roller. First, check the condition of the fuser assembly. If the soft roller is bad it will leave toner buildup on the teflon roller, and vice-versa. Start there.

Why would my scanned images be badly streaked after scanning from my Photosmart Prem Web C309n-s?


The rollers are dirty. Open the printer to see ALL of the rollers and using rubbing alcohol, wipe each down with paper towel being certain you get all around the rolls...the streaks are along the whole paper so it is essential you clean everything.

Dark streak on paper


you need to clean the rollers. consult the manual about cleaning the copier. if you don't have a manual, then get some methyl alcohol (any alcohol that evaporates completely will do). use a lint free cloth to rub a small amount of alcohol on all roller surfaces (accessible via pull-down compartments on front and back, usually).

I have an hp LaserJet 3015 PCL-6 all in one printer, copier & fax. When I use the copy function, there is a black streak running down the length of the copied paper. I tried replacing the toner...


Clean the thin glass strip that sits to the left of the flat bed glass.

That is the glass used when the ADF is being utilized.
There is dirt on it causing the black streak.

Paper not clean when printing/copying How do I


Hello,
first the paper can be dirty in a lot of ways...

i.e.

If you have dark "background"or small black dots, the problem is in developer and it need's to be replaced, or cleaning blade or drum.
If you have streaks on copy, the problem can be in drum and cleaning blade or fixing roller.
If the copy is too light, the problem can be in dirty optics or bad transfer corona.

There can be a lot of things... better call service for preventive maintenace, they will change all that is needed according the number of copies that machine has.

Hope that helps!

There is no model number or brand mentioned, but it may need a new drum kit. Also, sometimes the fuzer module is dirty.
