The copier is working well, except that I get streaks on the finished product. They seem to be in the same area each time. Its almost like something is dirty somewhere. I don't know if it is coming from the cartridge or somewhere else in the copier.

if you are copying through the feeder check the small glass under the lid has not got any typex or ink stuck to it you check by placing a copy on the glass under the lid and do a copy here.. if no streaks apear then check the glass area.. also if you are printing to it and no streaks appear this area is the cause.. if it happens on teh print side too then you have a drum /dev wear issue and it may need replacing.
Dirt on the narrow glass will cause streaks through the Auto feeder, but copies should be clean if using the main contact glass if that's the case. Dirt/toner anywhere else (ie:laser optics) would cause light areas on the copies- not dark. Did this happen the very first time you used it, or shortly after? In other words, could it be coincidental? It sounds more to me, like the PCU (photoconductor/drum unit) needs replacement, or a fuser roller. If cleaning the glass doesn't help, then one of these 2 things is causing your problem.
