It sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Try replacing it. If that does not cure the problem, then the fuser assembly needs to be replaced, in which case it is probably cheaper to buy a new one.

Good luck

SOURCE: Color Streaks down length of page

This is a laser printer, neither a copier nor a multifunction unit, therefore it has no glass. At least, I cannot find any glass in it.
I finally had an authorized Ricoh repair center examine it and found streaks on the black unit that pulls out of the right side (I forget the part's name, <$90). We replaced it and things are better but streaks of color remain. They suggested replacing the color one (about $400) but the cost is prohibitive right now, so I'll live with those streaks.
On a related note, I remain unimpressed with this printer's quality and inconsistency. For example, greys often print in pink; nothing has ever resolved this. I refuse to put any more money into it. When I can afford to do so, it will be replaced, probably by a Xerox Phaser.

It may be the fuser. Take it out and inspect the roller on it:

  1. Switch off the device, disconnect the mains plug and wait for 30 minutes before continuing.
  2. Ensure that the bypass tray is closed, or you will not be able to open the front cover.
  3. Open the front cover by pressing the release buttons as shown.
  4. Pull the front cover down towards you.
  5. Disconnect the green plug - squeeze the sides of the plug and pull.
  6. Push the left and right levers outward to unlock the unit.
  7. Pull the unit towards you as shown and lift it clear of the device.
  8. Check the roller for wear marks, If so replace it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: 2 IN. GRAY AREA DOWN SIDE PAPER

I too began to have vertical grey streaks on output from my trusty LaserJet 4 Plus. If I printed a page from text pad with just a single period on it the streaks were there, varying shades of gray in varying widths from 1/4 inch to 2 inches. I noticed the transfer roller was soiled in a way that matched the streaks and so was the green colored drum in the toner cartridge. I cleaned the toner cartridge and transfer roller and that completely solved the problem. 1. Cleaned transfer roller with old clean white dry t-shirt. Kept gently wiping toner off until it seemed pretty clean. Find info on web about how to remove the transfer roller in the service manual.
Get service manual by searching for LaserJet 4 on this web site:
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/
(you have to download it in several parts as .rar files, put all the rar files in one folder and then open the first .rar file with a program like Power Archiver and it will add all the files together into one big PDF file of the service manual) 2. Cleaned the half of the toner cartridge that houses the green drum roller. I followed the steps in Part 1 on this web page:
http://www.oddparts.com/ink/hp-4.htm 2A. I removed the green drum and wiped that off with old cotton t-shirt then set it aside out of the light. 2B. I cleaned the little roller (PCR roller) mounted behind the green drum, inside the toner cartridge with a slightly damp piece of cotton t-shirt, rubbed gently for quite a while to get to the white underneath the old toner. Did not get all of the toner off. Did not submerse this roller, just used slightly damp cloth. 2C. Detached the piece of metal that keeps old toner trapped in a compartment and also gently wiped toner off the plastic blade on it that is called the wiper blade. 2D. I scooped out old toner and then vacuumed out the rest from behind the metal piece described in 2C. Reassembled and no more streaks, totally clean page output.

The is blocked by dust on the side of the paper on the image unit that would have color associated with the print. Remove all the image units and clean all the laser glass. Replace those image units also if streaking as for the paper ensure correct paper side and media type.

When printing 2 sided sheets our machine puts dark gray streaks on the paper after printing more than 6 pages. The streaks continually get larger until they cover most of the page.


When you are printing 2 sided sheets the reason you are getting streaks, is your first sided not dry yet. I know it is a laser printer, even laser you have waite a bit.

Balck and white streaks on left side of paper


Usually if there are streaks you need to change the pcu that is the same color as the lines. If the streaks are gray it also could be the fuser, but i would think it is the pcu.

Lines down both the left side of the printouts.


good day,

this usually occurs when you print large volume of copies of documents that goes beyond the printable area of the paper, some powders stick in the roller of your printer hence making the gray streak.

you can check if the rollers have accumulated some powder, if so, have the rollers cleaned.

i hope this will help.

Printer prints a line across the paper around three inch from the left hand side of the page.


Check your Toner Carts.
Is the line a certain color?
Black perhaps?

Lift the door of the toner cart.
If you see a streak on your toner drum, you will see a streak on your paperwork.

Look at your fuser as well.
Is there a problem with the big orange roller?
BEWARE! Don't touch the fuser roller its EXTREMELY HOT!
Let the printer cool down before inspecting.
