I had the same problem. Your printer might be in 'envelope' mode. open the top of the printer and look towards the back. You should see two grey tabs with envelope symbols on them. make sure they're pushed down.

Try that

When i print an invoice for my business my invoice is printed with a streak down the right side of it. everything else on the invoice is printed with great quality but the streak down the side looks like...


Remove the toner/drum cartridge. If you can look up into the area above the toner cartridge with a flashlight, look for either dust on the laser glass or some other obstruction. Also check the transfer roller that lies just below the drum. Make sure that's clean with no damage to its sponge surface. DO NOT TOUCH IT WITH BARE HANDS!!! The oil from you skin will damage it. Most important thing to check: Look straight back to the rear of the printer without the cartridge in place. You should see an orange or red roller towards the back. That's the pressure roller for the fuser. Look with the flash light at the grey or light brown roller adjacent to that pressure roller. You said the right side is faded. Look at that right side of that roller. If there is any damage or foreign debris stuck on that side, and you can't clean it with cotton swabs and 91% Isopropol Alcohol, you probably will have to replace that fuser.

What causes a white streak and faded print to appear on copies?


Most often on the PC940 this means your toner cartridge is getting low on toner. To prove this is the cause, just remove the toner cartridge and while keeping it relatively level, shake it side to side a few times. This will re-distribute the remaining toner in the cartridge. Re-install and make a copy. The black streak/faded copy should be much better. If so then I would go ahead and get a new cartridge on the way.

Faded streaks for only blak color on Ricoh 3500N laser printer


Your toner cartridge is probably getting low. Toner is actually a powder, and it can get settled during shipments, bringing it home, etc etc. Take out the black toner and give it a gentle side-to-side shake a few times and pop it back in.
That should help.

Print quality: dark faded, but continuous


Open top cover and remove toner, shake toner cartridge and try a test print. IF image good then problem is low toner level in cartridge.

I have fading on the right hand side. Printer Dell 3100CN


Dell printers are junk. But you have put a lot of money into this thing. Check the alignment of the black drum, could be that something is keeping if off track a little bit.

Faded-out streak


check your ink levels. if its the ink that came with the printer it is probable running out of ink. they do not give a full cartridge with printers, only about 3rd full. also try cleaning the heads. and try changing your printer settings/prefrences to less ink, more drytime see if that helps.

Black streaks down left side of printouts Epson Aculaser C2600


I had exactly the same problem. Luckily we have 3 of these printers. Swapped the photoconductor and it solved the vertical streaking, even though the photoconductor was only half way through its life.

Ricoh Aficio CL 2000N printing problems


If the colors are good and solid with no fades, only black streaks, then black is the culprit. I suggest replacing the black cartridge.

Two dots on right side of page


if you replaced the cartridge and the streaks are still there then it's the fuser. you can try to clean the "fuser" roller with a little alcohol and your finger nail (after it's cooled down) to scratch off the toner, if it's an actual scratch on the roller you need to replace the fuser as it will pickup toner again and leave marks.

hope this helps
thanks for rating
