When using the auto feed, copies come out with black streaks down center of page


If you only get streaks when using the automatic document feeder, then in most cases it is dirt on the scanner glass. You do not state model but if you can also scan flat objects, trying copying a piece of paper that way. If that copy comes out fine, then you definitely have dirty glasss, if that copy has streaks you either have dirt on the scanner itself or a faulty scanner unit.

Black marks on pages when i print


Do the streaks get fainter as you print more pages?

It sounds to me like have toner on your rollers/fuser.

Print out 10 prints from the printer and see if it improves.

If you remove the fuser wiper cover from the top of the printer and look down you will see part of the fuser roller (DON'T TOUCH VERY HOT) and check if there is toner on it.

White streak down center of page


Remove the toner cartridge and while keeping it level, shake from side to side. Re-install and test. If light streak goes away then you are back in business. Keep in mind that this MAY mean your toner cartridge is getting low on toner.
Good Luck and Thnak You for using Fixya.

Balck and white streaks on left side of paper


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.

My drum is at 40%. I have black vertical streaks


I was going crazy! Had a tech come in and look at the machine - needless to say he did NOTHING! A friend came over and was trying different things. It was that the "rack" that the toner cartridges sit in was not fully seated - once he pushed down a little and heard it "click" I had no more black streaks. AMAZING

Streak down the center of the page


The streak is most likely the toner or the fuser

This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top or front to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the defect on the page the problem is most likely the toner cartridge but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
Hope this helps
