Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies
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.

This can be one of two
Print cartridge (you can do it, replace toner cartridge)
or Fuser (needs to go to doctors)
stop a print half way threw to confirm that it is print cartridge, good chance it is.

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. )

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.
