My copies have streaks of black on them. Do I need to replace the toner?

Maybe, what kind of Canon is it? You may have a cartridge with the toner & the drum? Or you may need to have the drum unit replaced O the drum & cleaning blade replaced or you need to clean the adf slip glass

What could cause wide black streaks when I try to make a copy? I cleaned the tranfer corotron, but still have the streaks. No warning lights come on for toner or drum cartridge replacement.

you may see the drum surface if there are black line left. if there is then you're having a problem with your drum unit; most probably the cleaning blade of the drum. :)
what is the model number of your machine anyway?

The green roller is the drum which has a cleaning blade to remove excess toner, when the drum gets older it becomes clogged and will dump toner back out onto the drum. Just some info on it. Best fix is replace the drum, you could take it apart and attempt to dump and clean it but it's rarely worth doing that.

I have a PC 25 copier. I am getting black streaks

Run a copy and shut the machine off when the copy is half way through. Open the machine up and remove the toner cartridge. Turn it over and slide open the flap that covers the drum. If you see toner streaks on the drum surface similar to what you see on the page you have a defective toner cartridge. Most likely the toner you bought is remanufactured as this machine is very old. Maybe you can return it for another.

Black vertical streaks on faxes & copies

On top of the toner/drum cartridge there should be a blue slider, move back and forth 10 times.

If no fix, you need a new toner cartridge.

I have an HP3800n printer. Ever since I cleared a jam copies of jobs come out with streaks in the background and smeared lettering. Any suggestions?

You have either dirtied or damaged the drum and/or toner in some way while cleaning the jam. I would first try removing the toner cartridge, open it, and while turning the gear on the side wipe any black toner from the glass surface. If that doesn't fix it, replace the toner cartridge entirely. If it still is resolved you will need to clean or replace the drum.

Black streaks on printout page

It sounds like excess toner has built up in or around the imaging drum. I would *carefully* remove the toner and drum (can be messy) and use some canned air to clean the inside out. If you are still getting these streaks, it might be time to get a new drum (DR 400) as you are supposed to replace the drum every 6 to 8 times you change the toner cartridge.
