It sounds like excess toner has built up in or around the imaging drum. I would *carefully* remove the toner and drum (can be messy) and use some canned air to clean the inside out. If you are still getting these streaks, it might be time to get a new drum (DR 400) as you are supposed to replace the drum every 6 to 8 times you change the toner cartridge.

You have useful help if you measure the distance between the defects. If the lines are repetive, use this link http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=378048&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=378048&objectID=c00063561

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi, My Canon 3245 Imagerunner is streaking.


Hello,
First, the streaks appears when copy from glass or adf, when printing or all?

Solution #1:
How many copies did you do from last drum changing? if over 80 000 copies, replace the drum unit.
-in case that streaks appears when copy and print

Solution #2:
If the streaks appears only if you copy from adf or glass, clean the glass and dry it out. Both glasses, narrow on left side beneath the adf/cover and glass for copy of original.

Solution #3:
If the streaks are wide and solid, with possible toner left overs, you need to replace fixing film.

Hope that helps!

We have a HP LaserJet 1320 printer that is leaving black marks or streaks on the paper-maybe ghosting(?). We have switched cartridges and it is still appearing. Any help would be appreciated!


Vertical lines, ghosting, streaks, and dots usually indicate a problem with the fuser when it doesn't regulate temperature correctly. When this happens the toner sticks to the drums and then copies the impression on successive pages, or gets scratched by the sand papery build up making lines as each sheet goes through.

Horizontal lines, page dusting, and vacant areas on the page are usually the toner or the drum, which on most printers are one unit.

If you have replaced the cartridge and the problem didn't go away, you probably have to replace the fuser.

Severe lines appear on copies. The cartridge is


Most likely it's the toner cartridge. Remove the cartridge, turn it over and slide open the cover over the drum. The drum is the colored cylinder running from one side of the cartridge to the other. Do you see what appears to be the same streaks going around the drum? The drum should be completely clean and free of any lines or streaks. If it has lines or streaks then the cartridge is bad.
Only other possibility here would be the scanner glass. Make sure your streaks don't go away when making a copy from the glass. If they do you could have dirt or trash on your scanner glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

I have a BROTHER MFC- 8860DN that makes black streaks on copies


If this is only happening with copies and not straight prints, it is possible that the problem is with the scanning unit. Use the soft cloth to clean the scanner area to the left side of the machine where pages are scanned when run through the page feeder. A spec of dust or other debris in this area will appear as a streak along the length of the page.

If it occurs on all prints, You may need to replace the drum or clean the fuser unit.

Large grey streak down center of page


It is the fuser at rear giving you grief! The upper heat roller has a teflon coating that wears away allowing toner to stick to roller and smudgin prints as they pass threw it. The fix is to replace fuser assembly, take to brother dealer to fix.

You can prove it to yourself by timing the print to stop mid way threw machine then remove print cartridge and look at paper, you should see a image is good untill it hits the fuser,( pre fused image "rubs off" paper.) If you have changed drum and toner thats all it can be. They all do it in time.

Fuser is hot bit at rear, pull out drum and look in the back with a small torch you will see upper heat roller is worn, guestimation $90 for fuser plus labour to fit.
