The printout from my HP 2600n has serious toner streaking. The repair centre said that I have to replace all cartridges. Is that the right thing to do?

streaking is usually caused by crud build up on the drying drum. it you have done two sided printing, sometimes the toner ink can get on the drum, you have to take the drum out and clean it.

Getting streaking when printing with Canon Pixma MP610. Read somewhere Printer Head needs cleaning, If so, how do you remove It? pkoaktown

Look on your PC. There is a maintenance menu for this printer. Follow instructions to do the head cleaning. If that is not enough you can remove your printer print head and try to clean it with dry cloth or with some kind of alcohol.
good luck

I'm getting streaking on my paper when it prints. Does my printer need cleaning and how do I do that.

Sounds like the cartridges needs cleaning. You can do it on the printer by pressing Settings button -> Maintenance, hit check-> Clean Cartridge, hit check. It will print the "clean cartridge" page and this will help clear the nozzles on the cartridges and improve the print quality.
Also try to check the cartridge ink levels. Press Settings button -> Maintenance -> Ink Level.
If problem continues, try to insert a known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge needs replacement. Thanks.

As you have replaced the both cartridges and still the issue persists, then this is a hardware issue with the unit. Please repair your printer.

Streaking during printing

Well laser printers don't have print heads they print with a combination of a laser and toner. So I wouldn't buy a car from that person. And rollers are only problems when the paper does not feed, hence the term rollers..
If you are getting white lines across the paper then the toner is not being distributed properly. You can take the toner cartridge out and shake it a few times to spread it out.
If you are getting dark stains, then the print drum is not being cleaned properly by a blade on the inside of the printer. After a page prints a blade goes across the print drum to clean off the excess toner. You would have to get that repaired somewhere that repairs printers.
Hope this helps. Please rate this solutiion.

Print page on SCX4100- streaking lines

Clearly bad toner cartridge. After long periods of time, the cleaning blade dries out. This cleaning blade works just as the wiper blades of your car. When they wear or dry out, you get streaking water lines in the windshield. Most manufacturers print an expiration date on the consumables wichi you can check before purchasing. Also try not to stock more consumables than those you plan to use within 6 months.

Hi there it will be either the drum unit for the color streaks you are getting or the fuser unit. Check the drum units for the streaks on them also check the fuser but the clue is when you have the streaks in different places. Most likely to be the drum units. You will need to replace.

Thanks J
