    Are you a TECH? Do you have the training to take machine apart? I am asking because I do not want to tell you something that you do not have the knowledge to do.

The CS 2050 is a mono color (black only) copier. There is nothing within this machine that I have EVER seen that has red and blue "ink" in it. I suggest you look at the paper that is in the tray itself. I have been on many service calls where the customer said the copier was tearing off a diagonal corner of the page, or the copier was putting something on the page that it was not capable of doing. When I looked at the paper in the tray I would find that the paper itself had the defect before it ever even went through the machine. Since there is 500 sheets per ****, and you may only see it on every 20th or 30th copy, you will have to either just try a new **** or go through whats in there 1 sheet at a time looking at both sides. But, if you find something that has blue and red ink within this machine please let me know.

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.

When I make copies or transmit a fax, it makes a 3/4" black line down the left side. I have cleaned ink cartridges and contacts but does not help.


The line is probably not from the ink cartridges or nozzles (assuming regular printing doesn't streak). Streaks on copies and transmitted faxes are usually due to dirt or problems on the scanner unit. First clean the flat bed of the scanne. If you have an automatic document feeder, clean that.

Clean with a lint free cloth moistened with a little water or glass cleaner. Make sure no foreign objects are in the ADF path or on the glass. For pictures see the Lexmark support site: http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=product&linkSelected=node0&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US#1. Then enter "streak on copy" - the solution comes up in a pop up.

If the streak is shrinking, then copy a blank white piece of paper to identify where to clean further. Try scanning another page with a small mark on it. (These are particularly helpful for cleaning the ADF.)

If the mark occurs when you print, then check if you have a damaged cartridge or other ink that has spilled inside the printer.

I hope this helps.

Kyocera Mita 2050 there are streaks of toner appearing on the pages printed.


If you send a print job or print a report from the copier and there is no streaks then the problem is most likely the thin **** glass to the left of the large glass. It just needs to be claened.

If the streaks are happening when printing and copying then the problem is most likely your drum unit (MK-410) or possibly the fixing unit (FU-410), the fixing unit is the one that gets hot.

As the drum gets old it can cause print/copy issues and the cleaning blade that cleans the drum gets to the point it doesn't clean the drum properly causing streaks.

The heat roller has a teflon coating on it and as the roller gets older the teflon starts to come off and can effect prints/copies.

The drum unit should be replaced every 150,000 pages and the fixing unit every 300,000 pages on the KM-2050.

I hope this is helpful,

My Kyocera Copystar CS-2114 Copier is printing a one inch black line of the left side of the paper


have a look at the scanner glass especially the thin strip glass this is the glass that is used when passing paper through the document feeder. if you do a copy from the main glass or print to it and no line apears there is probably dirt or tipex or a ink mark on the surfac, the other thing to look at os the drum charge unit as htese can sometimes fail to connesect correctly at the back and not sit tight in the slot this means the drum isnt charged on the edge.. good luck

I have a Minolta CS Pro EP 1031 Printer that makes streak marks


Drum cleaning blade has gone bad. Especially true if the streaks seem to get progressively worse as you run multiple copies. In other words run 10 copies. If the last one out is worse than the first one out it is the drum cleaning blade. Cheap part...around $25
