SOURCE: scanning document leaves streak down right hand side

Backu

Thanks for the tip...the problem is NOT a black line but a wide yellow line on the right side of the paper. It starts out about a quarter of the page in width and diminishes in size to about a half inch in width after many repeated scans.

The glass IS clean , and even when the glass had some smudges here and there, I never had a yellow stripe problem!

Scanner bulb is bright and even the entire length of bulb (no dark areas) so I don't think it is the bulb!

SOURCE: WHITE STREAK SOWN LEFT SIDE OF PAPER RICOH CL3500

I will try to explain what is happening here. Basically, the PCU's are what puts the toner to the paper. As the parts spin, if there is clumped up toner in there, you will get the "light" streaks on your print out and the streaks will run the entire length of the page for that 1 color (or black). If this is your problem, then here is what I do.

This is messy, get a plastic bag - preferable something you can see through.

Get a feel for where the opening slider is on the top of the PCU and slide it open and hold it open in the bag.

Turn the PCU upside down and shake out all of the loose toner, you will have to turn the unit "to and fro" while shaking and banging it lightly.

Sometimes this will free up the clump of toner that is built up in between the sides of the toner trap and the roller. There's 1 roller that is constantly "dipped" in toner and the other roller that pulls the toner that is needed off of the "dipped" roller to apply to the paper. The one that is "dipped" is having the toner rubbed off by a clump of toner prior to getting to the other roller therefore only transferring a reduced amount of toner where the buildup is.

I have also on the Black PCU have removed the top 2 screws, taken off the green end cap (watch for the 2 plastic plugs that will fall), flicked the spring clips off of both ends and removed the 1 gear to pull out the roller assembly inside the PCU and used a high pressure blower (or canned air) to clean out any clumps. I don't recommend this to anyone that is not mechanically inclined. You can try to blow out the unit through the small slider opening on the top, but you may not get to the part where the streak is.

Good luck. Be sure to rate this post if it helps.

Usually if there are streaks you need to change the pcu that is the same color as the lines. If the streaks are gray it also could be the fuser, but i would think it is the pcu.

SOURCE: When I print in colour there is a white streak

If you remove the drum, inside where the drum is a small glass panel if you clean this the white line will go away.

Veritcal streak on left side of paper. Streak is light gray


Hello,

Vertical streaks are usually caused by a bad fuser. The fuser roller has a teflon caoting and when this coating gets scratched or worn it causes image defect to appear on the paper. The fuser for the 4250 is part number RM1-1082 and you can get them from Amazon.com or other online sites. Here is a link to an article that shows how the fusers can cause the vertical image defects like you have.

I get a dark streak down the left hand side of every page.


It is either toner cartridge or fuser.
Print a few sheets of anything.
While printing, open the cover and pull out the toner.
Look down at the paper. If you see a dark streak, you have to replace the toner.
If the page is streakless, replace the fuser.

Black ink streak on left side of paper on hp 1012, just put in new toner


Run a half test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1).
Send a print job to printer. When the paper gets 3/4 of the way into the printer, open the cover. Pull out the toner cartridge, look down at the sheet inside the printer. Does it have the streak on the left side? If yes...your toner cartridge is bad. If no...replace the fuser.

It sounds like a few things could have happened.. Someone might have put a tyvek type paper in the machine that has partially fused to the FUSER. Or your Fuser is reaching the end of it useful life.

The Fuser is what puts the image/text on the paper.

Replacement of the fuser unit will correct this. The average price for a unit is 175-225 dollars + install.

I'm getting black streaks down the left side of the paper. There is plenty of toner left in the cartridge. We've vacuumed out the printer, cleaned the drum - nothing helps.


black streaks the toner cartridge is leaking from the left side which is easy to check pull the tone and look at the gears on the left side to see if toner is present. if these gears have toner on them the cartridge is leaking replace it. check the fuser for wear marks on the hot roller which is the top roller when these get worn through the outer coating they will create black streaks

Laserjet 1320 is printing a streak down the left side of the page. I replaced the fuser and toner. What's next?


Checking the paper path for ink deposits might be the solution. I had a similar problem sometime ago, where the fuser got some scratch damage for unknown reasons and i suppose was causing unfused ink to accumulate after the fuser, leaving streaks on paper.

Printer prints a line across the paper around three inch from the left hand side of the page.


Check your Toner Carts.
Is the line a certain color?
Black perhaps?

Lift the door of the toner cart.
If you see a streak on your toner drum, you will see a streak on your paperwork.

Look at your fuser as well.
Is there a problem with the big orange roller?
BEWARE! Don't touch the fuser roller its EXTREMELY HOT!
Let the printer cool down before inspecting.
