Most likely it is the drum cleaning blade. One indicator of the drum cleaning blade going bad is that the black lines will get worse as you run multiple copies. So if you make 10 copies for example, the last copy out will be streaked worse than the first copy out. Drum cleanig blades are about $30 bucks plus whatever your local service guy charges for a svc call.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
for most copier those black streaks are caused by poor cleaning of the Photo Conductor Drum these can be fix by replacing the cleaning blade. after replacing them clean the Photo Conductor Unit and make some test copies.
Drum cleaning blade has gone bad. Especially true if the streaks seem to get progressively worse as you run multiple copies. In other words run 10 copies. If the last one out is worse than the first one out it is the drum cleaning blade. Cheap part...around $25
Change of a virus on your n95 is really small. I think you have just a bad screen. If warranty is still valid, i think you should try to get a new one. Otherwise, you should get a new screen and a some information on how to replace the screen.
Any chance you can post a scan of one of the faulty pages ? This will make it easier to assess the fault.
Print off about 10 pages of a page that is affected by the lines. Look at each page and see if you can detect a recurring pattern over any of the pages.
If there is a pattern, chances are it is probably the PCU that is marked.
Without actually seeing a print sample or the machine, my bet would be on the black print cartridge. Even though it reads a an acceptable level of toner, the cartridge itself sounds like it has developed a proble.
1. It's the most obvious
2. It't the cheapest place to start. If it does not correct the problem, you can still use it later.
3. It's the problem in about 80% of these types of cases.
4. I know it should be fine, but if things didn't go wrong, I wouldn't have a job!
Let me know. If not we'll investigate further.
