I am getting black streaks 1" wide on the right edge of each page. I have checked the rollers on all four cartridges, inspected the fuser (as best I could) and everything appears to look OK. No excessive toner inside unit. Not sure if it's possible fuser or cartridges. I do not buy HP cartridges due to cost but have been using same on-line company for several years with no issue. Printer is about 4 years old and not heavily used. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi, You will have to run a cleaning cycle and do that as many times it take to fix the lines. If you don't use your printer enough the cartridges will dry up. This is a common problem with cartridges. If you are fed up with costs. Invest in a laser printer. They last longer and don't need cleaning as much. Hope that helps you.

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.

The Black Lines are not due to to toner problem.
The Black lines ate same at the Page Location . If so the Problem may be with Drum Or Charging Unit Or fuser assembly. If the same problem continues Please take out and see the drum do not toch it . (Please Power off the Printer and disconnect all the cables. )

If it's a spotty line, that most likely points to the fuser. Maybe something tore the belt or scratched the roller in there.

Black marks on pages when i print


Do the streaks get fainter as you print more pages?

It sounds to me like have toner on your rollers/fuser.

Print out 10 prints from the printer and see if it improves.

If you remove the fuser wiper cover from the top of the printer and look down you will see part of the fuser roller (DON'T TOUCH VERY HOT) and check if there is toner on it.

Sounds as though the fixing film assembly ( FM2-1793-020 ) in the fuser has developed a build up of toner causing what is normally called offset. You may also have to replace the lower pressure roller ( FC5-7207-010 ) also. You will have to remove the right side covers, door, and then the fuser assembly. Rebuilding the fuser has some challenges until you've done it a couple of times. Good Luck.

I m getting dotted dashed vertical line while printing



Cartridges: Most of these problems are related to the toner cartridge. If you don't have another cartridge to test it you can diagnose the problem another way. Put a sheet of paper in tray 1. Run a configuration page with your hand on the power switch. When the page reaches midway, turn the power off. You may have to do this a couple more times to get the timing correct. Now that you have stopped the paper midway, carefully remove the cartridge and the paper from the machine. Inspect it to see if the problem exists before it reached the fuser. If it does then it is in the cartridge, or possibly it could be in the Laser or scanner assembly. If it does not, then you have a bad fuser assembly. Remove the fuser and inspect it.
It could also be the transfer roller:
When the transfer roller begins to fail, one of the first signs of trouble will be black streaks on the paper. If you notice black marks on the sides of your printouts, chances are your LaserJet printer has a transfer roller that has begun to wear out. These black marks look like tire treads, so if you see that type of pattern it is important to order a replacement transfer roller and install it as soon as possible.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

This is more than likely down to the upper roller in the fuser assembly. It's the heat roller at the back of the printer. The upper roller wears so paper dust and toner stick to the roller which then can get deposited back on to the page.

Sounds like some of the magenta toner is left behind on the drum. The only way to fix it is to get a new cartridge.

An inch wide streak appears on the right side of a laser printer printed page.


If you can rub the toner off the paper it is the fuser.

fuser, the part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the
medium. It consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner
is transferred to the paper, the fuser applies heat and pressure to
ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently. This is why
paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.

For toner problem:

Do a half test as follows -
Print one sheet from the fold down tray, just as the trailing edge of the paper
goes into the printer open the toner door to stop the printer. Remove the toner
cartridge, are the marks on the paper that you can see in the printer? If they
are there the cartridge needs replacing.

This should help -

Developer streak
Developer streak is characterized by a line of dark or missing toner
that stretches from the leading edge to the trailing edge. Replace the
toner cartridge corresponding to the color of the developer streak (for
example, if the streak is magenta, replace the magenta toner
cartridge).

Repetitive defects troubleshooting
Repetitive defects are defects that occur in the same vertical position
on the page, but not necessarily on every page. Most repetitive
defects are caused by problems with one of the following, and are
indicated by the positioning of the defect on the page:
 developer roller (at 38 mm)
 charging roller (at 44 mm)—see additional information under
“Charge roller set” on page 454.
 cleaning roller (at 56 mm)
 developer DSD wheels (at 65 mm)
 transfer roller (at 66 mm)
 transfer drum (occurs once per 11-by-17 inch or A3-sized page,
or every other letter- or A4-sized page)
 fuser (at 150.5 mm)
 imaging drum (at 195 mm)
 transfer belt (at 222 mm)

2 IN. GRAY AREA DOWN SIDE PAPER


There are several things that can cause this. A worn toner cartridge and/or transfer roller can cause vertical smears, but it may also be a worn fuser assembly. The teflon coating on the fixing (heat) roller wears off, and leaves vertical streaks of varying widths on the pages. Sometimes you may see "ghost" images on the pages for the same reason. Open the back door of the printer, and hold down the exit guide on the fuser (carefull, it may be very hot). There are two long rollers, the lower one is black, the upper roller is either grey or shiny brown. That's the teflon coating. See if it's peeled or damaged. If so, replace the fuser assembly.
