Black streaky lines on printed and copied pages

Most of the pages that have been printed OR copied recently have been covered in black streaky lines, they fade from dark to light and are mostly on the edges of the pages. I assume i need to clean some part of the machine, but i am not sure where. I have a RICOH Aficio MP C4500. I am unable to book a technician to service the machine as i work in a remote location, so any help would be very much appreciated!

Open the front door you will notice a a green leaver that you can turn... there is a brown diagnoal sort of door where the developer units and drum units are set behind... unscrew the two screws on either end... and open the door upwards, there is a unit on the left upper side with a K printed on it ,,... release it with the little green leaver and gently pull the unit out... turn the unit check to see if that unit has streaks on the drum.... same applies for other colours ... most probably going to need replacemant

Brother MFC-440CN - print quality terrible, almost non-existent in spite of many cleaning operations.


It sounds like the printhead needs to be replaced. Brother may cover the cost of repair if you call them at 877-276-8437 and tell them the prints are "missing black ink". Very common problem that a new printhead should fix.

You need to either call a repair tech and have the printer serviced for routine maintenance or order a maintenance kit from Lexmark to do the job yourself.

Just curious, what is the page count on the printer? When was the last time the entire print cartridge was replaced?
