SOURCE: media jam transfer roller

Hello pp-helps,

This is very interesting. I do have the very SAME problem with my Xerox 6120 printer. I've been looking for the fuser roller all over without any sucess. The new fuser unit costs approximately the same as a new printer. I'm frustated at this time. I want to ask you the following: Are the mechanical components from the 2430 exactly the same as the 6120 as far as the fuser unit goes? if I find a roller replacement for the 2430 will it fit my 6120? do you have a p/n by any chance or know where can I get it?
I really really appreciate your help.

Regards,
Frank

SOURCE: Dirty copies.

Does this streaking problem occur when printing (not copying)? If it does then you are probably looking at a consumable issue. Alot of times black streaking is caused by a defective or spent drum. Is your drum new? There is also a blue piece on the drum unit used to clean the corona wire that cleans the drum. Have you tried moving it back and forth several times?

If the problem only happens when copying and the streaks are as bad as you make them out to be then you problem have a bad CIS unit (scans your originals for faxing or copying)

SOURCE: Black streaks on paper

Could you describe these marks for us please.

Are they small specks or blotches? Bad Toner Cartridge

Are they lines:
Horizontal - Transfer Roller or Charge Roller
Vertical - Bad Toner OR Bad Fuser.

Note: A bad toner cartridge can render all of the parts listed here useless. Check for build up or lines on the cartridge reflective drum. Avoid light, as with film.

If they are a mix of both, the device needs to be cleaned with a can of compressed air. You must remove the cartridge, paper tray(s, and fuser to create clear path.

SOURCE: BIG BLACK STREAK ON PAPER

If you're experiencing horizontal streaks, and already tried changing cartridges but that don't help, look in the bottom of the paper tray. If that small metal ground terminal gets ditry or bent, that could be the cause.

Drum cleaning blade has gone bad. Especially true if the streaks seem to get progressively worse as you run multiple copies. In other words run 10 copies. If the last one out is worse than the first one out it is the drum cleaning blade. Cheap part...around $25

Black streaks on both side of paper when copy on glass


Throwing the machine away is the best recommendation. You have a bad drum/developer that is leaking some toner. Could be a bad cleaner blade for streaks on the front; fallen toner for streaks on the back. Careful cleaning, replace transfer roller. First, check the condition of the fuser assembly. If the soft roller is bad it will leave toner buildup on the teflon roller, and vice-versa. Start there.

Dark streak on paper


you need to clean the rollers. consult the manual about cleaning the copier. if you don't have a manual, then get some methyl alcohol (any alcohol that evaporates completely will do). use a lint free cloth to rub a small amount of alcohol on all roller surfaces (accessible via pull-down compartments on front and back, usually).

Try cleaning the rollers with rubbing alcohol using a good quality paper towels, I find there is a buildup on the rollers causing streaking on the paper. If that fails the print head must be suspect.

How can I cure streaking on the reverse of the paper? Epson S20.


streaking on the reverse side suggest dirty rollers.

1. remove cartridges form the printer
2. disconnect all cables
3. check full paper path for presence of debris, lint, bits of paper, remove if necessary (you can put printer on it's back or sides for esy removal)
4. mount on long skewers lint free clothing or tissue
5. wet tissue/cloth in isopropyl alcohol and whipe all rubber rollers on paper path till no discoloration to the tissue
6. connect all cables
7. insert inks and print test page

if necessary, you need to clean rollers again, but once is usually sufficient. to keep printer in good condition, you need to print at least one page per week and periodicaly clean the rollers, that depend on amount of printing done.

I'm getting black streaks down the left side of the paper. There is plenty of toner left in the cartridge. We've vacuumed out the printer, cleaned the drum - nothing helps.


black streaks the toner cartridge is leaking from the left side which is easy to check pull the tone and look at the gears on the left side to see if toner is present. if these gears have toner on them the cartridge is leaking replace it. check the fuser for wear marks on the hot roller which is the top roller when these get worn through the outer coating they will create black streaks

WHITE STREAK SOWN LEFT SIDE OF PAPER RICOH CL3500


I will try to explain what is happening here. Basically, the PCU's are what puts the toner to the paper. As the parts spin, if there is clumped up toner in there, you will get the "light" streaks on your print out and the streaks will run the entire length of the page for that 1 color (or black). If this is your problem, then here is what I do.

This is messy, get a plastic bag - preferable something you can see through.

Get a feel for where the opening slider is on the top of the PCU and slide it open and hold it open in the bag.

Turn the PCU upside down and shake out all of the loose toner, you will have to turn the unit "to and fro" while shaking and banging it lightly.

Sometimes this will free up the clump of toner that is built up in between the sides of the toner trap and the roller. There's 1 roller that is constantly "dipped" in toner and the other roller that pulls the toner that is needed off of the "dipped" roller to apply to the paper. The one that is "dipped" is having the toner rubbed off by a clump of toner prior to getting to the other roller therefore only transferring a reduced amount of toner where the buildup is.

I have also on the Black PCU have removed the top 2 screws, taken off the green end cap (watch for the 2 plastic plugs that will fall), flicked the spring clips off of both ends and removed the 1 gear to pull out the roller assembly inside the PCU and used a high pressure blower (or canned air) to clean out any clumps. I don't recommend this to anyone that is not mechanically inclined. You can try to blow out the unit through the small slider opening on the top, but you may not get to the part where the streak is.

Good luck. Be sure to rate this post if it helps.

What causes the toner to leave color streaks on the paper? It's leaving red streaks and I've replaced the magenta & black developers....but could it be the PCU causing the problem?


The developers almost never streak. I would be looking at your PCUs. Developers have a tendency to leave voids and dust the paper. PCUs tend to streak as the cleaning blade and charge roller wears out.
