There is a lens inside the printer that has a speck of dust on it. If you pull the Drum cartridge (the green handle) look straight down on the side closest to the fornt you will see a glass peice about 6"x3/8". Dust on this will create a streak like your describing. Do not touch this with your hand! Use a lint free cloth or better a can of dust spray be sure not to tip the can so that the solution sprays out, do not blow on it with your mouth either. You may spit on it! You can usually see the speck of dust. Get it removed and you should be fine.

This totally solved my problem, I have a Magicolor 2530dl and I bought after market cartridges, I thought, that's what I get for buying cheaper cartridges, but cleaning the glass lens was all it needed.

Thank You.

White streaks and double printing


Usually when a printer can't feed paper evenly anymore, it's worn out. As long as you are using fresh paper and not over or under loading the paper tray, the rollers should feed the paper ok.

Why does my epson stylus 1400 leave streaks in the print?


The tracking wheels (spiked wheels) can pick up ink and lay it back down. They can also accumulate debris that collect ink and put it down in the form of streaks. This is especially true if you use dusty or moist papers (or frosting sheets).

Hi ...

Well it looks like the head alignment sheet was not filled in properly ...
Confirm the circles were filled in as follows: Good example:

Bad examples:

If more than one circle is filled in, reprint the Head Alignment Sheet.

Streaks in my pictures


You can clean the print head by using the following procedure from the troubleshooting section of the manual:

Take paper out of the printer
Take a single sheet and put it back in - upside down (i.e. shiny side down).
Close the door and wait for the sheet to eject.
Put all the paper back into the printer in the correct orientation (shiny side up), close the lid and print again.

I've discovered even better results by keeping the special blue sheet that comes with each paper pack. I run the special sheet through before I'm about to use the printer for the first time (after not using it for a few days), and also after every three prints. The result is much better printouts for me. The special blue sheet cleans and calibrates the print head. Just put the blue sheet in the paper tray at the bottom of the stack with the bar code facing down and close the lid. It will automatically eject.

I get a vertical line tried cleaning tried the option where you press button till 3 lights come on"


If a blank document also has the same line. then the cleaning routine which sucks ink from the cartridges via the printhead, is futile.
You have a contaminent in the paper path itself that will either require some disassembly to find and remove or you can try a trick that doesn't:
- Use a sheet of high quality plain bond paper, make a streak across the page with (preferably pure) alcohol.  - Feed the page into the printer and force the paper to feed through several times. - It helps occasionally if you can grab the trailing end of the sheet and hold it for a second, then let go again, then repeat. This cause the drive rollers to rotate against the paper, hopefully where the alcohol streak is.
This will sometimes dissolve and remove whatever it is that is in the paper path.
