Question about Brother BU300CL Transfer Belt, 50,000 Page-Yield

1 Answer

Transfer Belt Leaving Color Streaks on Pages

When printing full page colored documents and/or pictures, the page comes out with vertical and/or horizontal lines that are missing the colors that were printed. (e.g. We printed a picture of our logo, and there is a blank streak about 1mm wide that runs down the full length of the page.) It is not in the same area consistently, but somewhere on the page there is always a blank line either vertically or horizontally. Is this a problem with the transfer belt or something else? Does the transfer belt need replacing, or can it be cleaned/fixed in house?

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.

SOURCE: MFC-9440 CN Laser Printer is producing vertical color line streak

Colored vertical streaks - looks like a transfer belt problem, and it's not user fixable. You may need a new belt unit - you can find it for around US$ 80-120, but you may want to have a technician inspect the unit first, since it could arguably be the drum instead, and you don't want to fork around US$ 100 and replace the wrong part.
You can try showing a printer sample at a print shop; by looking at the streaks it is possible to diagnose drum, fuser or belt problems.
Here you find a much more detailed page, for another printer model, but the issues are mainly the same for most color printers:

SOURCE: all printouts have a 3/8 inch wide light vertical line -

Try an old toner cartridge if you have one. Does it do it when you use the copier function. Steven 805-520-3003

HP LJ 2600 "dirty" printing


Hi,

If the toner cartridges are "refills" that might explain some of your print quality issues. Unfortunately, HP only has 2 replacement parts for that model, the fuser and the ETB (Transfer belt) both would require a technician to replace. Check the transfer belt of any tears or punctures. Careful not to touch it, oils from your skin can cause quality issues as well. If at all possible replace all the toners with ones that were working fine.

Most of the time when I find this happening on a printer, not just Ricoh's it turns out to be the PCU (photo conductor unit). The color PCU is one unit and the black is a seperate unit. Hope this helps.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks


Hey Chuck, Any chance you can post a scan of one of the faulty pages ? This will make it easier to assess the fault. Print off about 10 pages of a page that is affected by the lines. Look at each page and see if you can detect a recurring pattern over any of the pages. If there is a pattern, chances are it is probably the PCU that is marked.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks


Without actually seeing a print sample or the machine, my bet would be on the black print cartridge. Even though it reads a an acceptable level of toner, the cartridge itself sounds like it has developed a proble. 1. It's the most obvious 2. It't the cheapest place to start. If it does not correct the problem, you can still use it later. 3. It's the problem in about 80% of these types of cases. 4. I know it should be fine, but if things didn't go wrong, I wouldn't have a job! Let me know. If not we'll investigate further. Ed
