Hi, My Canon 3245 Imagerunner is streaking.


Hello,
First, the streaks appears when copy from glass or adf, when printing or all?

Solution #1:
How many copies did you do from last drum changing? if over 80 000 copies, replace the drum unit.
-in case that streaks appears when copy and print

Solution #2:
If the streaks appears only if you copy from adf or glass, clean the glass and dry it out. Both glasses, narrow on left side beneath the adf/cover and glass for copy of original.

Solution #3:
If the streaks are wide and solid, with possible toner left overs, you need to replace fixing film.

Hope that helps!

I have a Canon Pixma MP270 and I can only print in colour both the black and colour lights are lit up on the printer


f print quality does not improve by the standard cleaning of the Print Head, clean the Print Head deeply. Cleaning the Print Head deeply consumes more ink than the standard cleaning of the Print Head, so clean the Print Head deeply only when necessary.
1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

2. Clean the Print Head deeply. (1) Press the g0022565.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until y appears. g0054776.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning the Print Head deeply. Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the deep cleaning of the Print Head. This takes about 2 minutes.

3. Check the print head condition.

When the deep cleaning is completed, the LED returns to the copy standby mode. To check the print head condition, print the nozzle check pattern.

See " Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern".

If the problem is not resolved, turn off the power and clean the Print Head deeply again after 24 hours.
If the problem is still not resolved, replace the FINE Cartridge with a new one.

See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".
If the problem is still not resolved after replacing the FINE Cartridge, contact the service center.

Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print head nozzles.

NOTE If the remaining ink level is low, the nozzle check pattern will not be printed correctly. Replace the FINE Cartridge whose ink is low.
See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".



You need to prepare: a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.

3. Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

4. Print the nozzle check pattern.

(1) Press the g0020617.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until A appears. g0054754.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.

The nozzle check pattern will be printed.

5. Examine the nozzle check pattern.
See Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern.

Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern

Examine the nozzle check pattern, and clean the Print Head if necessary.

1. Check if there are missing lines in the pattern (1) or horizontal white streaks in the pattern (2). g0054755.png (1) Check if lines are missing in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
See " Cleaning the Print Head".

g0020623.png
(A) Good
(B) Bad (lines are missing)

(2) Check if horizontal white streaks are present in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
See " Cleaning the Print Head".
g0020621.png
(A) Good
(B) Bad (horizontal white streaks are present)
Post back!

Printed document has white streaks. I've replaced all toner cartridges AND replaced the toner waste unit. The streaking occurs when I print or copy but is much worse when I make a copy. Is there a printing...


If you are getting vertical white streaks or faded streaks from the top of the page to the bottom. It sounds like the developer blades in the imaging unit needs to be replaced. It cost around $120 to replace, but after a while it will happen again. This is a common problem with this printer. It can be cleaned by taking the unit apart and cleaning the developer blades, if you are handy. I have posted detail instructions in my tips section. or you can click on this link:

Hope this helps.

I have a black streak all on one side when i copy ?


If it is just when you copy and not when you print then it is a cleaning issue. Toner cartridge would cause the line to appear on copies, printouts and faxes. There is a piece of glass inside the auto document feeder that is probably dirty. Open up the document feeder as if you were clearing an original document jam. Look for a piece of glass inside the ADF, it will run the length of the document feeder. There is probably some dirt or another popular problem is white out. Clean off the glass with glass cleaner or alcohol and it should fix the problem.

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.

Dirty printing


1) try cleaning the heads this is usually a job within the printing programmes,
2) using a cotten wool Q tip "the baby typr" and metholated spirits "do not use white spirits or turps too greasy" clean the inside "tram rails " that the carrage slides on "
dont use to much liquid though"
also bleach is very good at removing opld ink that lays on the rails " it is time consuming but well worth the time

2530 DL problem printing, has a streak of white line all the way down the page. Has plenty of toner in it.


If all the toners are not empty, then you have toner or dust on the print head unit. Remove the drum cartridge and you will see beneath it a narrow glass, just be sure that glass is clean.
