I am getting poor copies. They are pale and sort of streaked. By streaked I mean that there are areas of the copy that is darker than other areas. Also on the edge of the page is a smudge that is powdery. You can wipe off most of the toner and it leaves a light shadowy blotch. I have replaced the toner cartidge, as well as the drum. When I remove the toner catridges they have a build up of toner on them at the end. (The end that is farthest inside, or the back of the machine.) I have vacuumed toner that has gotten into the machine from this area. I have cleaned off all of the ares of the copier that I can see.

I'm afraid that regarding pale copies, you are better off checking your consumables (toner, fusers, etc) and then try talking to Toshiba. However, the vertical white streaks can be caused by excess ink and other contaminants on the inside of the printer. If you open the main door to both the printer and finisher (if fitted) and look at all of the visible runners, feeders and other handling devices, try to see if any of them line up with your vertical streaks on a page. If so, try manually rolling them and cleaning them thoroughly. This might help remove some of the streaking (it did on mine).
Hope this helps,
If they are black streaks and they are always in the exact same place, open the cover and clean the skinny little scanning glass. It might be ink or lint. If it's white streaks then it's in the same place but it's dried correction tape or fluid, etc.
It probably has several issues - optics dirty, and drum, and blade failing. I would also imagine that even the Solid "blacks" aren't as black as they could be, and that would be the developer. This machine is in the 17 year old range, and I wouldn't spend dime on it
It dose not have a print head. But it dose have a drum. Are the streaks thin lines? Also, is only part of the copies fixed into the paper ( can you rub part of the copies OFF)? If you can rub off part of the copies - your problem is in the fixing unit. If the lines are fixed and can not be rubbed OFF you most likly need a new drum unit. Good Luck... Either way you will need a service rep. out to fix your problem
On the bottom of the laptop. You should find the serial number and model number.
It sounds like the LCD has some issues. I recently repaired a machine with a simular problem, but the screen was more "splashed" than streaked. By that i mean you could clearly see the screen was smashed.
Would you say your streaking is more like "Digital" streaking what we call "Artifacts" or its like a splash of water on it, where maybe its been smashed.
If its the other, try safe mode with VGA support. That should disable any other programs or settings causing the problem.
Oh! And when you first boot the machine, does the "ACER" logo look normal? How about the windows boot screens?
