9 times out of 10 this is coming from one of the two drum (photoconductor) units. Just open the right side door, release the waste toner box, and remove the 2 drum units. The larger one is the color drum unit and the smaller one is the black. Look down thru the slot in the top of the unit (3 slots in the color drum) and look at the green colored drum surface. On one end or the other you should be able to see the same lines on the drum surface that you are seeing on the paper. One of the 2 drum units should have the lines and that will tell you which one will need to be replaced. Hopefully it will be the black drum unit as they are relatively cheap. The color ones are $350 to $400
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
This is coming from the Black Drum Unit. You may be able to remove the unit and look into the slot on the top. You should see the drum which is green in color and may be able to see the lines. Not much you can do with these units so you may just have to replace it.
Take out the drum cartridge (piece with the long green arm) and look down inside the printer for any toner that may be leaking on your pages.
So I understand correctly, you were seeing different color toner on the cyan and yellow rollers?. If so gently clean that side of the roller off. Rotate the white gear on the right side of the toner cartridge back towards you and see if the correct color comes back on the roller. If you were seeing grooves on the roller then they will have to be replaced.
Put the toner cartridges back in and run color calibration. Press menu/select. Right arrow key until you get to engine. Press select. Left arrow key until you get to service. Press select. Right arrow key until you get to color calibration. Press select.
