Phaser 7300 Printing Diagonal Lines

Since initial purchase, whenever I print graphics or color copies, the background of each print-out reveals thinly spaced diagonal lines.   Perhaps this is normal for an LED printer?  I'm skeptical as there are many lower cost color printers available with much better resolution and output (again, assuming the diagonal lines are as designed.)   Any insight or advice?  Many thanks.

    Many thanks for your advice and I will do as you've suggested. However, I recently noticed something when I ran a color reference page last night: the diagonal lines only appear on Black and Cyan colors (or in full-color or blended-color images or text when black and cyan are used.) Does this continue to sound like a drum cartridge problem? Also, your advice above seems to suggest that I remove the current drum cartridge and then replace same cartridge into the machine (no mention of purchasing a new or replacement cartridge) -- just want to make certain that I understand your advice clearly. Many thanks.

If the machine will copy in color it should print in color.
After verifying that it will copy in color, verify your driver is capable of being switched from black and white to color. If there are no color settings then you have the wrong driver. The link above will take you to the support page where you can download new drivers.

Phaser 7300 dn prints full yellow color background on every page even if the background copy shows no color.

Most likely the yellow drum unit is causing that problem. The charge roller gets worn and makes whatever color it is in print out all the time. That would require replacing the yellow imaging unit.

Will not print multiple collated two sided publications without individually sending each job

I would try changing the driver you are using. There are multiple drivers and it really sounds like that will resolve your problem.
For the drivers go to
on the tool bar select Support and Drivers.
Then enter your printer number, being phaser enter phaser 7300 in the search .
Select your operating system and there will be PS and PCL drivers.
I am 99.9 percent sure the issue is in the driver.
