Vertical streaks when printing pictures

I have a Dell 3010cn laser printer and picture prints come out with short and long streaks down the page. They are vertical only streaks, some short and some long. It has new toners in so it isn't a lack of ink problem. It looks like there could be something on teh rollers maybe? Can you help? Thank you

Vertical lines on prints usually means either the drum's cleaning blade is not cleaning the drum (or the drum is damaged) or the fuser is scored. scored means that the protective coating on the fuser rollers is damaged. I would check the rollers on the fuser (the hot part of the printer right near the paper exit) for any lines on it, if you look at your prints, you should see them in the same location on the fuser. if you do not see any lines on the fuser rollers, then replace the drum.

Transfer Belt Leaving Color Streaks on Pages


Try replacing color toner of the same color that are the lines.If the void was in the same place all of the time then I would say use a Q tip dipped in 90 proof alcohol and clean laser.

My Dell 3010cn has does not print the far right hand part of the page any longer. I have replaced toner, drum and looked for blockage. What could be the problem?


Hi,
It is most likely be due to dust/ toner dust accumulation at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the copier, which partially blocks laser beams and results in faint print. Therefore the printer requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.


Hope it helps! Good Luck!

It prints vertical lines where the text is.


check your drum unit. The toner cartridge mounts into the drum which can be permanently charged causing a constant streak to occur.

Solution:
Remove the toner and drum unit. Clean them off with a non-fuzzy non-rough cloth or paper towel. Pay particular attention to where the streaks are in relation to the toner cartridge and drum. If you clean it off and you still get streaks check whether they transfer from the toner or just from the drum.

There may be a way to discharge the drum, otherwise you need a new drum.

Dell 3010CN Color Laser Printer is leaving vertical smudge/bleeding. Is there a toner dump box to empty? It is just cyan streaking.


Try a new Cyan toner cartridge. If nogo, will need a new transfer roller or transfer belt (I used to work on these printers but forgot if they use a belt or not... I will check on the DCSE site and post back)
