    It is internal to the drum unit. Drum needs to be replaced.

    The unit has a drum cleaning blade that cleans the drum. It wipes the drum as the drum turns. It may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: black streaks on printout page

It sounds like excess toner has built up in or around the imaging drum. I would *carefully* remove the toner and drum (can be messy) and use some canned air to clean the inside out. If you are still getting these streaks, it might be time to get a new drum (DR 400) as you are supposed to replace the drum every 6 to 8 times you change the toner cartridge.

SOURCE: line prints down page when you copy

No promise that this will work for everyone, but I just fixed one with the same problem. I figured either there was something on the scanner sensor itself or on the glass. If you look to the left of the large glass scan area, you will see a smaller glass strip. When you use the auto document feeder, the scanner stays under that piece of glass. To narrow the problem down, I tried copying a sheet on the large glass (not using the ADF). No line. So, it wasn't the sensor itself, it had to be something on the small glass. That piece of glass is held down with double-sided tape. Dell tries to keep dust and dirt out of the interior of the unit, but it isn't hermetically sealed. So, when something gets underneath the glass, it can stick and create a permanent spot where the sensor only sees darkness. First, try cleaning the top. Look very carefully at the glass about where that line is appearing on the paper (if the line is 2 inches from the side, look about two inches in on the glass. If you are lucky, there's some whiteout (famous for screwing up scanners) or something else stuck to the top. Clean it. Gently. If you scratch it, you're going to hate your scans and copies forever. If it's on the bottom, prepare to void your warranty if Dell finds out, but carefully and slowly pry the piece of plastic holding the small piece of glass out of the machine. It's just sticky tape, but it is on all sides of the piece and it covers the large piece of glass, too. That's where I started, using a very small knife edge to slowly pry up the plastic from the large piece of glass. Little by little, the piece came up. Again, be careful. If you pry too hard, you can break the large scan glass or the piece of plastic you are removing. Once it's out, don't get any dirt on the tape that held it in place - it needs to work when you finish. Now, gently clean the glass. I used a lintfree cotton rag and some glass cleaner. In about a minute, I was able to remove all traces of dirt from both sides and put it gently back into the printer. I haven't had a problem since and hope you have the same luck!

SOURCE: Streaks on photo sensitive drum HP laserjet 5MP

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: My drum is at 40%. I have black vertical streaks

I was going crazy! Had a tech come in and look at the machine - needless to say he did NOTHING! A friend came over and was trying different things. It was that the "rack" that the toner cartridges sit in was not fully seated - once he pushed down a little and heard it "click" I had no more black streaks. AMAZING

SOURCE: getting horizontal red streaks across printed page

The drum roller is damaged. You must be careful and spin the cylinder. do not touch the roller. You probably have a line in the roller that causes this issue. Each time i have seen this problem, this was the cause.

My minolta ep 4000 copier prints with thick black streaks imprinted on page. what's wrong? is it the corona, the drum, or something else?

Most likely it is the drum cleaning blade. One indicator of the drum cleaning blade going bad is that the black lines will get worse as you run multiple copies. So if you make 10 copies for example, the last copy out will be streaked worse than the first copy out. Drum cleanig blades are about $30 bucks plus whatever your local service guy charges for a svc call.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a Minolta CS Pro EP 1031 Printer that makes streak marks

Drum cleaning blade has gone bad. Especially true if the streaks seem to get progressively worse as you run multiple copies. In other words run 10 copies. If the last one out is worse than the first one out it is the drum cleaning blade. Cheap part...around $25

I have a BROTHER MFC- 8860DN that makes black streaks on copies

If this is only happening with copies and not straight prints, it is possible that the problem is with the scanning unit. Use the soft cloth to clean the scanner area to the left side of the machine where pages are scanned when run through the page feeder. A spec of dust or other debris in this area will appear as a streak along the length of the page.

If it occurs on all prints, You may need to replace the drum or clean the fuser unit.

Black smudge streaks on rightside of printed/copied material

Can only be two things the drum or the fuser. More than likely drum they last about 4 toners i think.

Learn the art of getting a page to stop halfway threw printing, you want to stop the page after the drum has put a image on the paper but before paper has gone threw the fuser (hotbit).

Once you have mastered the position correctly by stopping the printing by opening the door and removing drum/toner cartridge, to reveal the paper that is printed but can be rubbed off, we will know if marks are coming from the drum (you will see them) or from the fuser, if print is fine.
