Question about Canon PC-1060 Black and White Copier

2 Answers

Copies have several dirty streaks across the pages

Copies have horizontal dirty streaks, more dense in the middle than at the edges. Also, there is a thin vertical stripe down the middle of the page.

I assume this might be a problem with the toner cartridge (which I assume includes the drum), but I don't want to spend $160 on a new cartridge and discover that was not the problem! I have run the drum cleaning procedure. The problem is not the ADF; it occurs even when copying a plain sheet of paper on the glass.

This unit is used at home, and not all that frequently; the cartridge has been in the copier for about 3 years and is probably about halfway through its estimated 5000-copy capacity.

    You're right! Replacing the toner cartridge solved the problem. I've used laser copiers and printers since they were introduced, and I've only seen light streaks as indicators that toner is needed, not dark streaks. I still don't understand it, but I do appreciate your insight! Thank you.

Horizontal streaks and smears across whole page. Still does this with lightest setting. Can't read copies at all. Model- ricoh aficio 1018


sounds like the recycling pipe is blocked or cleaning blade has worn out
You need to take the drum unit appart and vac out the recycling coil and clean the cleaning blade.

I have long yellow streaks on copies.


Hi, Sounds like the yellow PCU is faulty, pressuming the streaks are vertically down the page.
If they are horizontally across the page it is probably another issue.

Getting horizontal red streaks across printed page


The drum roller is damaged. You must be careful and spin the cylinder. do not touch the roller. You probably have a line in the roller that causes this issue. Each time i have seen this problem, this was the cause.

Streaky copies


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

2 streaks down middle of page


Do the black lines go from the lead edge to the trail edge? Also, were the lines there before you replaced the drum? If so the problem lies in the fixing unit.... You most likely need a upper fixing roller.

Dirty Edges


I'm sorry to tell you, this is likely a drum issue.

You probably need to have a certified engineer examine the machine.

Have you tried speaking with the local service center to see if they have experienced similar issues? It might be free information.

Horizontal streaks on pages


Streaks at 2.82 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the fusing roller of the printer. In some cases, these marks can be cleared up by running a cleaning page through the unit. Laser Printer Cleaning sheets can be purchased at your local printer/office supply store. If the marks persist, this can indicate a more serious problem with the fusing roller that would require service attention.

Streaks at 3.74 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the image drum of the printer. There is no way to repair a damaged photosensitive image drum, so in the case that it is scratched or otherwise damaged, the entire CRU (toner/drum cartridge) would require replacement to clear up these marks.
