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.

Light streaks and gray streaks and little contrast.

Sounds like there are multiple problems on this machine. Dirty optics can cause light images, white streaks can be caused by dirty cortron wires(becareful when cleaning the wire or all the wires 3 usually, Q-tip can help) , not enough toner in the ink hopper, dirty cleaning blade in the drum modual. A bad heat roll can cause streaks also. Background with light images and black spots can be caused by competitive toner not working very good.

I have started getting streaks on Image Runner 2020

Try to print something, if there is any streaks?If no the problem is in copy glass (dadf or platen glass).

If there is streaks on print also,it could be the drum unit ( pull the drum unit out and see if on drum surface is any black streaks), fixing film is worn out, and in the worst case you have problem with toner unit ( on toner unit you have current leackage ) and you need (in best case) clean the contacts on toner unit, and in more expencive case tochange the toner unit.

Canon 3220 I/R Jams, leaves blue/yellow streaks

Hi i am a canon technician that do a lot of work on these machines, i have seen many of these machines do over 1 million copies and rarely break down they usually are very reliable,
your streak colour problem sounds like it needs a ITB cleaning blade, if you open the front cover and release the waste toner bottle it sits in behind there just undo one screw and slide it out have a look and see if the blade is yellowish if so you need to replace it. Photocopiers are made to work all day they never need to rest, just rememeber these machines do have small drums but are good for 40k black at 10% coverage.
believe me get a new technician,
feed rollers in trays are good for 100.000 prints i like to change them about 60,000 copies but seen the feed rollers to 100,000 many times.
Prob the biggest problem with these machines when first realesed were low fuser volume about 80k and pretty stuffed heat rollers but they have fixed that issue now.
hope all this helps,
p.s. Ring canon direct they will give you a good local dealer to deal with
Regards canon Tech

look on the drum ( shiny cylinder).
most likely it is moving on each page, same image but different spot on the same side.

Streaks on paper

Nisha... If you haven't done so already, you need to run a few copies off the glass as opposed to through the feeder to determine "where" your problem is. Do the copies of your originals placed on the glass have the same line/streak defects as the ones made run through the feeder? IF NOT, then you probably have some sort of dirt or contamination on the FAR RIGHT side of the glass (ink, white-out, dirt, etc), and the machine is reading that as part of the image and printing it as a line. When running copies through the feeder, the scanner moves to the far right and parks there. Then the feeder moves the original over the scanner on the right side of the glass (the scanner stays still). So if you find the lines evident when using the feeder, but not there when copying off the glass, you need to clean the glass on the far right. IF YES (lines/streaks through the feeder AND off the glass), then your problem is most likely internal of the machine (bad drum in the L50 cartridge, dirty optical scanner, worn fuser rollers, etc) and I hate to say it, but will probably require a service call to rectify it. Sometimes you can actually take the L50 cartridge out immediately after running a few copies, and while holding it up, manually open the spring-loaded drum shutter on the under-side of the cartridge to expose the drum and visually inspect it to see if the line defects on your copies are evident on the drum itself. If so, you will most likely need to simply replace your cartridge and hopefully save a service call. If you can't really tell if the streaks are on the drum itself, then you're back to probably needing a service call. NOTE: DO NOT TOUCH, WIPE, CLEAN, OR OTHERWISE CONTAMINATE THE DRUM WHILE YOU ARE DOING THIS, and do not leave the unit exposed to light for longer than a minute or so, because if the problem isn't evident/obvious with the drum cartridge, you don't want to risk damaging/contaminating it and thereby causing one. Please let me know if any of this was helpful. Thanks.
