    At first I had the black vertical streaks on the right side of the page. Then black all but stopped printing on the page. The funny thing is that color prints ok. The printer alert for replacing the CPU did not turn on.

    Thanks J - the CPU change solved my problem, though now, I get smudges (look like stains) of black on some pages, in different places, not the same.

Did you re-fill the black toner cartridge with genuine Ricoh toner or from somewhere else? It might be the wrong granularity.

My samsung ML 2510 prints a black streak on each plus a watermark from previous page


If your paper setting are set corectly (normal paper) and you are getting a "ghost image" from the previous page, most likley the fuser is the problem. On rare occasions, the drum unit could be the culpret (Black lines) down the sides of the page as you indicated.
You may have 2 problems.

I would change the toner drum 1st. If the black lines go away ,yet the ghost image continues, then change the fuser as well.

BLACK LINE ALONG RIGHT SIDE OF LETTER SIZE PAPER


Is this and Okidata C5100? And is the stripe vertical up and down on the page? I'm going to assume yes to both of those for the sake of trying to help. Worse case is the fuser unit in the machine is wearing in one spot and thats why the streak is appearing. Also, many color printers require a seperate drum unit or photo conductor unit. These could have a wear spot on them as well. They can fail long befor the change drum light appears. Other than that remove and inspect the black cartridge. If there is a shutter on it, pull back and inspect the two inner rollers. You're looking for any wear spots in a location that corresponds to the streaks on the paper...or an excessive amount of toner leaking from one spot on it. Hope this helps!!

Thick black line on printed page


If the line runs the way that the paper does I.E. vertical on a portrait then it is dirty rollers normally.
If you open the lid and wipe the rollers this shoukd reduce or eliminate the black lines.

My drum is at 40%. I have black vertical streaks


I was going crazy! Had a tech come in and look at the machine - needless to say he did NOTHING! A friend came over and was trying different things. It was that the "rack" that the toner cartridges sit in was not fully seated - once he pushed down a little and heard it "click" I had no more black streaks. AMAZING

CLP-500 vertical streaks & a horizontal line with blotches appearing randomly


I've refilled the toner cartridges a few times now and never had a problem with vertical streaks until recently. I refilled both the cyan and magenta and when I ran the test page I had dark vertical streaks on both sides. I fiddled around cleaning things, running cleaning paper through, changing reset resistors but to no avail so eventually decided to buy a replacement refurbished cyan cartridge since the streaks looked mainly blue and bingo... well almost now I just have very light magenta streaks. The issue is obvious when I compared the old and new cartridge, the replacement toner is a much duller cyan and is of the wrong consistency since once it's been in the printer everything gets covered in it which is why I think it causes the banding to occur. I'm just trying to work out now whether to try refilling the magenta again (v. messy) or just go for another refurbished cartridge (£34).

Printer prints a line across the paper around three inch from the left hand side of the page.


Check your Toner Carts.
Is the line a certain color?
Black perhaps?

Lift the door of the toner cart.
If you see a streak on your toner drum, you will see a streak on your paperwork.

Look at your fuser as well.
Is there a problem with the big orange roller?
BEWARE! Don't touch the fuser roller its EXTREMELY HOT!
Let the printer cool down before inspecting.

Consistent, faded and streaking vertical lines across entire page, from top to bottom.


Toner issue getting to drum - use gen toner cart.

or Drum blade stuffed (lines are down page fro top to bottom- replace drum assy

Drum has been exposed to light faint or blank across copies repeated 4 times down page - replace drum assy

or upper fuser roller stuffed, down page, smudgy print -  replace fuser

LSU(laser) or boards rarely cause issues
