Check the calibration strip to make sure it isn't soiled. This can cause streaking in your scans. Also check the glass where the paper is. Make sure it is clean as well.

When I scan two-sided to pdf, the back page has a large black vertical streak down left side.

If that is the last page that has the streak use a blank page in the original scan as the last page and then the dark line wont cover the image.

HP ScanJet 4670 - yellow lines or streaks in scans

You have a dirty glass. Take a lint free cloth and water and wipe the glass making sure you leave no streaks behind. Sometimes you have to take a flashlight and examine the glass. Just a little spec, the laser will drag all the way down.

My brother MFC 8500 is receiving alright but everything I send out has a big black streak going down the right side of the page. Confirmation page also has big black streak.

Let me see if I got this right.

The received fax is clean but when you send one out it has a black streak on it.
Cool! So far so good.
Makes sense because for sending, the fax scans the original document and parts of the scanning area could be dirty and so on. Therefore a black streak may appear.
The same black streak would also appear when you make a copy, because the original document must also be scanned.

However for receiving faxes, the machine uses the internal memory and the print engine only, and the same applies to printing the transaction report, which comes from inside via the print engine.
The scanner has no rol in either situation.

Now I'm lost!

I get a streak down the middle of every page that prints. I have tried cleaning the printer, even tried replacding the cartridge, but still the same persistant streak, on every page all the way from the...

If the streak is like a thin double image line, or the print feels like it rubs off then it is coming from the fuser film. The fusing units are fairly inexpensive and not hard to replace but if you have to have someone do it for you then it might be just as cheap to get a new laser printer.
Look at the exit section of the printer where the paper comes out. The fuser film is a grey "roller" that sits on top of an orange roller. If you can see the grey sheet you may be able to see the defect line in the middle of the sheet that is causing the line.
Good Luck

COPIER imageRunner C3100N has an occasional streak down the page

Is it a grey/green colour, not one of the C,M,Y,K colours?

If so I think it will either be a worn out cleaning blade or drum.

Streaks on photo sensitive drum HP laserjet 5MP

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My printer- Brother HL1250- is making grey streaks on the paper

More than likely the grey streaks are from dirty fuser rollers open the fuser area and insect the fuser rollers i think they should be grey take silicone lubricant and wiat ntil rollers cool down and clean with a coton cloth do not scrape with anything sharp if this does not work then you ned to remove the glass platen and clean the optics( mirror and lens with tissue and glass cleaner wen machine is not hot also insect expsoure lamp( do not touh lamps because the oil from your hands will cause the lamp to get extremly hot and burn out good luck

One other thought is there could be marks from the stripper fingers at the fuser section look for build up of toner on them if so clean with q tip and alcohol
