You say 'horizontal", but I imagine your paper is actually travelling 'laterally' or or sideways through the machine right? That means that the lines are actually running vertically based on the paper direction.

Is that 2" wide line visible on your drum?
Drum cleaning blade has likely failed....it should ALWAYS be replaced with a new drum.

Some time ago I found a couple of screws in the bottom of the copier but couldn't see where they came from. The copier is now making a grinding/ thumping noise and the copies come out streaked. Is there...


Not really it is best to get an engineer certified on the model of the copier you have to look at it a good engineer will no pretty much when thew see the type of screws and your streaking issue were they come from i would guess either the fuser area or drum area again this is a guess in the dark

Kyocera Mita 2050 there are streaks of toner appearing on the pages printed.


If you send a print job or print a report from the copier and there is no streaks then the problem is most likely the thin **** glass to the left of the large glass. It just needs to be claened.

If the streaks are happening when printing and copying then the problem is most likely your drum unit (MK-410) or possibly the fixing unit (FU-410), the fixing unit is the one that gets hot.

As the drum gets old it can cause print/copy issues and the cleaning blade that cleans the drum gets to the point it doesn't clean the drum properly causing streaks.

The heat roller has a teflon coating on it and as the roller gets older the teflon starts to come off and can effect prints/copies.

The drum unit should be replaced every 150,000 pages and the fixing unit every 300,000 pages on the KM-2050.

I hope this is helpful,
Shawn

Mita all copies have clean, thin, black streaks


Needs a clean around the fuser area. You may see a build up of toner near the rollers which is being drawn in. There's an outside chance that the lens needs cleaning also.

Mita DC 1860 3 dark horizontal streaks


The black lines you have sound like a bad drum cleaning blade. If you want to take out the drum unit, first you have to remove the two black screws that hold the process unit in. You can find these inside the front door of machine, you will see a metal plate that is attached to the toner hopper, the black screws are in the upper left & the upper right of that plate. You can then slide out the process unit, it should stop about half way out. Lift up on the orange handle and slide it the rest of the way out. If you have to clean the drum use a soft dry cloth first, pull the drum shaft out and the drum will lift out, if the lines do not go away you can use alcohol & then wipe off as much residew as possiable. If the black lines return after reasembly you have a bad cleaning blade. Hope this helps, Let me know if you need more help.

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.
