Streaky cyan, grip to back


I'm not sure which model # you have but if it's similar to the 7700 series you can try cleaning the laser window, if that doesn't change the problem it's probably the developer roller.

Printing Quality on HP 4550 Colorlaserjet


most likely the OPC (drum) or sometimes called "image drum or transfer belt located in the top draw. this is a consumable that needs replacing after it's life cycle is over. sometimes it will go below or over the life cycle, it all depends on many variables.

I would take out all the consumables, toner, belt and so on and use a dry cloth and small vacuum to clean the inside of the printer, then test it again, but when you have streaks it is usually the transfer belt. other possibilities is the scanner/laser window inside, sometimes it gets toner on the glass.

but step 1 is the Transfer Belt/Drum

hope this helps

My HP Color LaserJet 8550 is printing very distinct streaks. It seems to be in areas that have a lot of magenta. Any idea how to get rid of the streaks??


If the streaks are limited to a single colour, the problem is likely to be THAT colour TONER CARTRIDGE.

A problem with the DRUM UNIT (only a single drum in this printer) or the TRASNSFER DRUM , or BELT (this printer has both a transfer drum and a belt), would affect ALL colours.

The left hand side of each page prints some streaky dark lines. I've tried to clean it and put it in cleaning mode but nothing works. Help please!


Remove the toner cartridge. Turn it over and slide open the gate that covers the drum. Do you see streaks on one end of the little colored cylinder? (drum)
If so then the streaks are coming from the cartridge.
90% or better of the time, especially on HP's the print quality issues are coming from the cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Fax copy is streaky, almost banded looking. Copies the same too, streaky looking. Toner seems to be full, drum was replaced about 10 months ago with an after market one.


If they are black streaks and they are always in the exact same place, open the cover and clean the skinny little scanning glass. It might be ink or lint. If it's white streaks then it's in the same place but it's dried correction tape or fluid, etc.

Our copies are streaky like the drum is not clean.... help! There is black streaks on the top of all of our copies on our canon imagerunner 3300.


A) Black Streaks, Shadows, And Ghosting
Adjust the printer's lightness/darkness setting to 2-3 different variables and see if problem disappears. Look at the fusing assembly - is the roller torn or does it have any black buildup? Use caution!!! It gets HOT!

Try another toner also.

Streaks in prints


What I would do is remove all cartridges, wipe the belt w/clean cloth use an air can to clean the machine, check the drum on each cartridge see if there is something, it could be there was a change in Voltage and it burnt the drums. change 1 more toner cartridge to see if that color goes away, if it does then you will know if the drums are the problems.
I've had a problem w gen toners doing the exact same thing, so I had to OEM and it went away. Good luck>

Light and streaky copies, and a powder residue.


make sure that the machine is level first. then you will have to change both the drum unit and toner cart with new units not just change the drum in the drum unit.

Lanier 5622 Prints vertical lines


You could remove the color and black&white drum units and check from below the units to visually observe lines on all the 4 drums. If so, you have to change the drum unit/units. Drums occassionally get damaged before life this way due to solid toner particles inside the toner bottle.Always "shake the toners very well" before replacement, and if you print rarely, then remove the toners and do the shaking to prevent clogging due to inactivity.
