It sounds like the drum may need to be replaced. The streaks may be caused by sections of the drum no longer being able to hold a charge and therefore, toner will not properly stick to the paper in those sections and you'll be left with long white streaks on the paper. This is a usual symptom of a bad drum.

Horzontal white lines cut through print and picture copies. When doing head allignment the horozontal bars all have a white gap, 1 through 7. Epson Stylus CX5400

You don't need to do head alignment, because it is for vertical banding in printout. Vertical banding can be minimized by disabling high speed option without doing head alignment. If your printout have horizontal white lines, do check nozzle and head cleaning, or you can minimize white lines by printing in best quality (photo).

Vertical Thick Lines accross papaer on a HP Laserjet 3330

So the "White lines" went away when you replaced the cartridge, and now you have "dark Lines"?
It sounds to me like you have yet another bad cartridge. Is it remanufactured/ compatible?
Although, they can perform very well, they can also be awful depending on the source.
Return it and get another one, or different brand.

Printer leaves white vertical lines on document

I dont know what kind of copier you have but white vertical lines are virtually always caused by a dirty charge corona.There is usually a little plastic handle, blue, green or grey, that cleans the charge corona.pull it out ONCE, push it back in and try another copy.If you have an operators manual, it should have instructions for cleaning the charge corona.Good Luck, O'scope

Error code F2-42

Are the lines horizontal or vertical? DO you get lines on B/W copies (black and white) also? If you try to copy a blank white page do you get the lines? Does the toner / lines wipe off after the copy comes out? If the toner wipes off after the copy comes out you have a problem in the fusing unit ( the hot area that fixes the image onto the page). If the lines are vertical then you have something inside the device that is dragging across the page as it goes through the device. If the lines are horizontal then you it could be the drum cleaning blade, the transport blade, or charge roller. The noise could be that one of the blades are bouncing. It could be that a gear is worn. Please give more info on the problem to better help.
