Question about Xerox XC356 Copier

1 Answer

Dark streaks on copies from Xerox XC356 copier. Streaks were light at first; changed to a new toner cartridge and streaks are same size/same place on the page -- but now darker. There are three streaks, each about .5 inch wide that run the length of the copy. The first two are about 1 inch apart at the middle of an 8.5 inch page. The third streak is spaced about 2.5 inches away from the second one.

    I have a dark streak on the upper border.

    Sometimes it's light, almost not there and other times it's real dark.

Why i get black streaks on paper in laser printer prints?


there are some possibilities for this problem. i will explain it. 1) First of all check out if the toner is full ,half or near to empty. There is no exact procedure to check the powder left in the toner without opening the toner.but in one toner there comes about near to 1500 copies.if you have got about 1200 to 1300 copies.then its quite possible that the power left is near to empty so the streaks comes on the paper due to less powder left.many times in this case removing and shaking the toner then reinserting the toner again and checking the printout helps. 2) But if you are sure that toner is not empty then other possibility is.in the toner cartridge there is a aluminium drum.its easily seen in the cartridge.once you remove the cartridge. if that drum is got very much used then due to that drum the streaks appear.fox example.if the drum is new the print is very dark.if the drum gets old the print gets very light or with streaks or faded print. 3) Now if drum and toner powder both are proper and still the problem then its the fault in the printer.in your printer there is some toner powder got spilled out on the inner parts from where the printing paper passes.so when the paper passes from the part where the powder is fallen or got collected then the streaks comes.in this case the printer needs internal cleaning and servicing. 4) but in some cases it has been noticed that internal powder of the toner becomes moist and very hard to come out from the toner for printing.in this case either toner needs to be refilled or toner needs to be replaced.you can get the toner refilled from local cartridge refilling store or local stationery shops dealing in cartridge refillings.The cartridge refilling shops also have the same printer for checking the cartridge.so at the refilling shop it will be confirmed whether the fault is in cartridge or printer.
This will help. Thanks .

What could cause wide black streaks when I try to make a copy? I cleaned the tranfer corotron, but still have the streaks. No warning lights come on for toner or drum cartridge replacement.


you may see the drum surface if there are black line left. if there is then you're having a problem with your drum unit; most probably the cleaning blade of the drum. :)
what is the model number of your machine anyway?

I have a PC 25 copier. I am getting black streaks


Run a copy and shut the machine off when the copy is half way through. Open the machine up and remove the toner cartridge. Turn it over and slide open the flap that covers the drum. If you see toner streaks on the drum surface similar to what you see on the page you have a defective toner cartridge. Most likely the toner you bought is remanufactured as this machine is very old. Maybe you can return it for another.

CLP-500 vertical streaks & a horizontal line with blotches appearing randomly


I've refilled the toner cartridges a few times now and never had a problem with vertical streaks until recently. I refilled both the cyan and magenta and when I ran the test page I had dark vertical streaks on both sides. I fiddled around cleaning things, running cleaning paper through, changing reset resistors but to no avail so eventually decided to buy a replacement refurbished cyan cartridge since the streaks looked mainly blue and bingo... well almost now I just have very light magenta streaks. The issue is obvious when I compared the old and new cartridge, the replacement toner is a much duller cyan and is of the wrong consistency since once it's been in the printer everything gets covered in it which is why I think it causes the banding to occur. I'm just trying to work out now whether to try refilling the magenta again (v. messy) or just go for another refurbished cartridge (£34).
