Printing color problem

When I am printing color (brown), yellowish streak/section replaces the brown color on the image. Is one of the toner low? I just replace one of the color toner and the rest of them didnt indicate needing replacement. Any help is appreciated.

If you are getting vertical white streaks or faded streaks from the top of the page to the bottom. It sounds like the developer blades in the imaging unit needs to be replaced. It cost around $120 to replace, but after a while it will happen again. This is a common problem with this printer. It can be cleaned by taking the unit apart and cleaning the developer blades, if you are handy. I have posted detail instructions in my tips section. or you can click on this link:

Hope this helps.

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.

Hp 4550 vertical line down center of page

From the service manual:

Vertical lines or streaks
 Check for a leak where light might be entering the printer.
 Check for circumferential scars on the photosensitive drum. If scars are present, replace the
drum cartridge if the line goes through all colors.
 Check for circumferential scars on the upper fusing roller. If scars are present, replace the upper
fusing roller if the line goes through all colors.
 Remove the imaging drum and inspect main charger or imaging drum for a contaminant, such as
a fiber, if the line goes through all colors.
CAUTION Do not expose the imaging drum to light for more than 15 seconds. The drum is light sensitive, and
exposure to light can cause permanent damage.
Vertical black lines
 The toner cartridge is defective.
 The toner cartridge is not seated properly.
 The fuser entrance is dirty.
 The fuser has scratches on it.
 This might be a repetitive defect. If so, the lines will repeat at a consistent interval down the page.
 The printer needs to be cleaned.
 There is a problem in the heating element.
Vertical white lines
 If white lines or streaks appear only in the black areas of the printed media, print several
configuration pages to clear the anomaly. If this does not clear the problem, check the sleeve
surface to confirm the defect, then replace the black toner cartridge.
 If white lines appear only in a particular color, try printing several configuration pages to clear the
error. If the error does not clear, check the sleeve surface to confirm the defect, then replace the
defective toner cartridge.
 There is a lack of toner or the toner cartridge is faulty.
 There is dirt in the laser path.
 The fuser is defective.
 A mirror in the laser scanner is dirty.

Horz. streak approx.3/4 down on each page I print

Sounds like some of the magenta toner is left behind on the drum. The only way to fix it is to get a new cartridge.

Most of the time when I find this happening on a printer, not just Ricoh's it turns out to be the PCU (photo conductor unit). The color PCU is one unit and the black is a seperate unit. Hope this helps.
