Vertical white skreaks when printing


Check the remaining service life of the drums, also check the condition of your transfer belt. It is most likely your problem is one of those two elements.

Pale copies and two vertical white streaks


Hi,
I'm afraid that regarding pale copies, you are better off checking your consumables (toner, fusers, etc) and then try talking to Toshiba. However, the vertical white streaks can be caused by excess ink and other contaminants on the inside of the printer. If you open the main door to both the printer and finisher (if fitted) and look at all of the visible runners, feeders and other handling devices, try to see if any of them line up with your vertical streaks on a page. If so, try manually rolling them and cleaning them thoroughly. This might help remove some of the streaking (it did on mine).
Hope this helps, Alistair

Printed document has white streaks. I've replaced all toner cartridges AND replaced the toner waste unit. The streaking occurs when I print or copy but is much worse when I make a copy. Is there a printing...


If you are getting vertical white streaks or faded streaks from the top of the page to the bottom. It sounds like the developer blades in the imaging unit needs to be replaced. It cost around $120 to replace, but after a while it will happen again. This is a common problem with this printer. It can be cleaned by taking the unit apart and cleaning the developer blades, if you are handy. I have posted detail instructions in my tips section. or you can click on this link:

Hope this helps.

Streaky copies


It probably has several issues - optics dirty, and drum, and blade failing. I would also imagine that even the Solid "blacks" aren't as black as they could be, and that would be the developer. This machine is in the 17 year old range, and I wouldn't spend dime on it

LONG WHITE VERTICAL LINES


It sounds like the drum may need to be replaced. The streaks may be caused by sections of the drum no longer being able to hold a charge and therefore, toner will not properly stick to the paper in those sections and you'll be left with long white streaks on the paper. This is a usual symptom of a bad drum.
