The black lines you have sound like a bad drum cleaning blade. If you want to take out the drum unit, first you have to remove the two black screws that hold the process unit in. You can find these inside the front door of machine, you will see a metal plate that is attached to the toner hopper, the black screws are in the upper left & the upper right of that plate. You can then slide out the process unit, it should stop about half way out. Lift up on the orange handle and slide it the rest of the way out. If you have to clean the drum use a soft dry cloth first, pull the drum shaft out and the drum will lift out, if the lines do not go away you can use alcohol & then wipe off as much residew as possiable. If the black lines return after reasembly you have a bad cleaning blade. Hope this helps, Let me know if you need more help.

Kyocera Mita 2050 there are streaks of toner appearing on the pages printed.


If you send a print job or print a report from the copier and there is no streaks then the problem is most likely the thin **** glass to the left of the large glass. It just needs to be claened.

If the streaks are happening when printing and copying then the problem is most likely your drum unit (MK-410) or possibly the fixing unit (FU-410), the fixing unit is the one that gets hot.

As the drum gets old it can cause print/copy issues and the cleaning blade that cleans the drum gets to the point it doesn't clean the drum properly causing streaks.

The heat roller has a teflon coating on it and as the roller gets older the teflon starts to come off and can effect prints/copies.

The drum unit should be replaced every 150,000 pages and the fixing unit every 300,000 pages on the KM-2050.

I hope this is helpful,
Shawn

Mita DC-1860 horizontal streaks after new drum


You say 'horizontal", but I imagine your paper is actually travelling 'laterally' or or sideways through the machine right? That means that the lines are actually running vertically based on the paper direction.

Is that 2" wide line visible on your drum?
Drum cleaning blade has likely failed....it should ALWAYS be replaced with a new drum.

I have a mita dc1255 copier. When coping the copies come out dark with horizontal lines. Any idea what the problem could be.


One, it might be the optics in the machine are dirty, two the cleaning blade for the drum may need replacing.
