When you say you are getting horizontal lines which way is the paper coming out and what way are you looking at the paper? I could very well be the OPC drum & drum cleaning blade, or it could be the upper fixing roller. If it is really horizontal you may have a problem with your developing unit. It's hard to guess

Copies have lines through them.


Odds are you are going to need a new drum & cleaning blade for black lines and for white lines you may need a developer change or clean the primary & transfer corona units.

My minolta ep 4000 copier prints with thick black streaks imprinted on page. what's wrong? is it the corona, the drum, or something else?


Most likely it is the drum cleaning blade. One indicator of the drum cleaning blade going bad is that the black lines will get worse as you run multiple copies. So if you make 10 copies for example, the last copy out will be streaked worse than the first copy out. Drum cleanig blades are about $30 bucks plus whatever your local service guy charges for a svc call.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Where can I get Minolta cs-pro EP2050 replacement drum?


TRY KATUN CORP.FOR THE DRUM BUT YOU WILL ALSO NEED A
DRUM CLEANING BLADE. AN OLD BLADE CAN DAMAGE A NEW DRUM QUICKLY,SOMETIMES ON THE FIRST COPY. WEAR LATEX GLOVES WHEN REPLACING.. OIL FROM YOUR FINGER TIPS CAN
DAMAGE THE DRUM AND OR CLEANING BLADE.IF NOT KATUN
TRY YOUR LOCAL MINOLTA DEALER BUT EXPECT TO PAY MUCH MORE.

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

The copies are coming out smeared and with lines. I wiped the (drum?) off?


What did you wipe the drum off with???? That is why you have this problem. You may want to try recleaning the opc with a dry soft rag, also you may want to clean the drum blade... If that dose not solve your problem, you may need to replace the opc & blade... Have you tried to stop the copy before it gets to the fuser unit.. If so, are the marks there???
