- remove all cartridges
- clean all leaked powder on the cartrtidges and inside the 4 cartridge compartiments with a vacuum cleaner
(don't touch the powdered roll on the cartridge!)

- deep inside the printer you will see a glass-strip. You have to clean this strip carefully. Because of powder, that has leaked from the cartridges, the laser-beam is dimmed. This causes the white streak you mentioned!

If you remove the drum, inside where the drum is a small glass panel if you clean this the white line will go away.

We have recently bought a second hand OKI C5200 Colour Laser Printer and even though the black and white print seems to be great the clour is coming out with coloured streaks, what would you recommend?


One or more of the drums may be defective. Swap the black with another color and print a document. If that color printed the charectors ok, then continue the test with the other drums each taking a turn in the Black drum position until you find the bad drum.

On Canon iRC 3200 Laser Printer:: streaks of fainted print


if one side prints well its not the fuser,plus those fusers normaly make alot of noise when they start to act up. right above the bypass tray is a cover with a screw in the front of it. remove this and inside is the ITB belt(two blue handles) if you pull it out there is a metal plate on the bottom bending this up can solve this problem. the paper can drag across this plate causing streaks.hope this helps.

HP Laserjet 2820 Streaks on Page


Hi,

There are 3 parts to the imaging process that could cause your issue. You have the toner (x4), the imaging drum unit (Q3964A) and the fuser unit. If you are getting streaks from all colors, one or more these parts are the issue.

Let's start with the easy stuff:

Open the cover as if you were replacing toner where you can "visually" inspect the toner and imaging drum. Pull the drum out and pull back the "plastic shutter" on the top, this will expose a green drum CAUTION! Too much exposure to light and touching it can cause damage. Just take a quick look trying to see if any of the lines on your page match any marks on the drum. Check the bottom half of the unit as well there should be a white section across the bottom, expect that as well.

Next look at the toner, if you can look at any other color but black it will help you look for the streak marks a lot easeier. If you couldn't see any streaks on the drum on toner cartridges, it's time to look at the fuser unit. Power the machine down and turn it around, unplug it then fold down the blue clips and CAUTION! the fuser heats the toner to the page so if it's been used recently it may be hot. once the clips are down, just pull straight back and look for the streak marks.

Sorry for the book, but I hope it helps.

My epson rx420 only prints the left hand side of any document ??? Can any one help please . many thanks


have you set the page setup in document is same with page setup at print setup. Some new epson printer use paper sensor to measure the paper width. If page setup wider than actually paper inserted, the printer will print only half page. example : Your document 10 cm wide, page setup 20 cm, and you insert 10 cm paper wide. It will print only half of 10 cm, 5 cm.

Print quality Epson C1100


It sounds as though a cartridge is faulty. To determine which one, the easiest way is to run a page of text/block of colour through in yellow then cyan then magenta. which ever page comes out with the streaks on it will tell you which cartyridge to ditch and replace. Hope this helps Cops Pete@wedotoners.com
