Re: pages printing with streaks.

Our office has one of these units that we actually called the tech to service a three week old unit because of this problem. It is a known issue by Toshiba and folks that service these units. It is also easily fixed.

You will notice when you raise the cover that there is a thin piece of glass on the left hand side that has the scanning element under it.

All you need to do is take some alcohol and clean that thin piece of glass as it tends to get smeared with ink sometimes as the pages pass over the scanning element. Look at the glass at an angle to make sure you get it clean.

Re: pages printing with streaks.

Try making a copy on the glass, does it come out with the streaks or clean?
If clean then look at the strip glass on the copier there is a pen dot or white out that 's giving you the streak. clean.

What causes streaky copies

A few questions:
- Did this problem just start?

- Was there a paper jam and when the paper was dislodged the next few sheets were streaked? Running a few more pages usually clears this.

- Is this a new toner cartridge? Did you just change the cartridge? Are you low on toner? Try removing the cartridge and gently rocking it back and forth, side to side. This will distribute the toner more evenly.

- Is this a heavier weight paper then previously used? Try going back to the old weight and see if the problem continues.

Our copies are streaky like the drum is not clean.... help! There is black streaks on the top of all of our copies on our canon imagerunner 3300.

A) Black Streaks, Shadows, And Ghosting
Adjust the printer's lightness/darkness setting to 2-3 different variables and see if problem disappears. Look at the fusing assembly - is the roller torn or does it have any black buildup? Use caution!!! It gets HOT!

Try another toner also.

Toshiba e-studio 3511 has printing issued on one

These copiers have serious toner dust issues. Light copies are usually caused by dust in the optics (the mirrors) and on the laser glass.
Take off the main copy glass and gently clean all the mirrors and scan bulb underneath it - be careful.
If you remove the drum unit and look inside the cavity you took it out of you will probably find a huge toner mess. the laser glass is situated in this cavity and needs to be cleaned - just clean whatever you can see...

Streaky copies-- how to fix I jhave 3 vertical stripes of streak on every page that I print.  The toner is a new installation.  So that's not it.

This is usually a cleaning problem. Drum, fuser, rollers AND the charging wires. The wires are very fragile. Look for toner thaat is out of place.

If you are not familiar with the insides of the unit, best to take it to a shop as there are fragile things.

Toshiba eStudio 210c grey background on copies

U need to check your developer material. How many copiers has been made?

U can also perform 05-200 for the auto toner adjustment. The value should be in the range of 235-245% ( 2.35v - 2.45v )

Light and streaky copies, and a powder residue.

make sure that the machine is level first. then you will have to change both the drum unit and toner cart with new units not just change the drum in the drum unit.

Streaky Copies

It dose not have a print head. But it dose have a drum. Are the streaks thin lines? Also, is only part of the copies fixed into the paper ( can you rub part of the copies OFF)? If you can rub off part of the copies - your problem is in the fixing unit. If the lines are fixed and can not be rubbed OFF you most likly need a new drum unit. Good Luck... Either way you will need a service rep. out to fix your problem

Black smudge streaks on rightside of printed/copied material

Can only be two things the drum or the fuser. More than likely drum they last about 4 toners i think.

Learn the art of getting a page to stop halfway threw printing, you want to stop the page after the drum has put a image on the paper but before paper has gone threw the fuser (hotbit).

Once you have mastered the position correctly by stopping the printing by opening the door and removing drum/toner cartridge, to reveal the paper that is printed but can be rubbed off, we will know if marks are coming from the drum (you will see them) or from the fuser, if print is fine.
