Most common cause of this issue is low toner. Best solution is to remove the toner cartridge and while keeping it mostly level, shake it from side to side to level out the toner. Then re-install and test. If this fixes your issue then just be aware that the toner cartridge is starting to get low on toner.
Now if the white streak is very fine and the above procedure does not work then it is most likely something stuck to the scanner glass. To test for this print out a report from the operation panel or if you have the machine connected to a PC print something from there. Are your print outs ok? If so it means that it is definately something on the scanner glass. To locate it and clean it just make a copy of something. Now take that copy with the blank line on it and place it in the feeder just as you did with the original. now wherever the blank streak is lined up on the machine is where the spot is going to be on the scanner glass. Just open the cover where the documents go in and look for the strip of glass that runs from side to side. Your copy passes over this glass when it is scanned. Where the blank line hits this glass is where the trouble spot is. Just clean the glass with a cloth that has some glass cleaner sprayed on it. This should resolve the problem.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

HP 3015 stopped scanning. It still prints, and goes through motions of scanning, but page is blank


HELLO

First of all,



Isolate to a wall outlet and not a strip.

Remove the cartridges.

Remove the power plug and then reconnect.

Reinstal the cartridges.

Try to do a copy direct from the unit.

Print a self test page and check for Yellow or Magenta to rule out a partially empty cartridge.


  1. Load plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch the ATM button (c01671671.gif ) next to the Setup icon (c01629002.gif ) in the lower-left corner of the control panel.

I have an hp LaserJet 3015 PCL-6 all in one printer, copier & fax. When I use the copy function, there is a black streak running down the length of the copied paper. I tried replacing the toner...


Clean the thin glass strip that sits to the left of the flat bed glass.

That is the glass used when the ADF is being utilized.
There is dirt on it causing the black streak.

Hi, My Canon 3245 Imagerunner is streaking.


Hello,
First, the streaks appears when copy from glass or adf, when printing or all?

Solution #1:
How many copies did you do from last drum changing? if over 80 000 copies, replace the drum unit.
-in case that streaks appears when copy and print

Solution #2:
If the streaks appears only if you copy from adf or glass, clean the glass and dry it out. Both glasses, narrow on left side beneath the adf/cover and glass for copy of original.

Solution #3:
If the streaks are wide and solid, with possible toner left overs, you need to replace fixing film.

Hope that helps!

Pale copies and two vertical white streaks


Hi,
I'm afraid that regarding pale copies, you are better off checking your consumables (toner, fusers, etc) and then try talking to Toshiba. However, the vertical white streaks can be caused by excess ink and other contaminants on the inside of the printer. If you open the main door to both the printer and finisher (if fitted) and look at all of the visible runners, feeders and other handling devices, try to see if any of them line up with your vertical streaks on a page. If so, try manually rolling them and cleaning them thoroughly. This might help remove some of the streaking (it did on mine).
Hope this helps, Alistair

What causes a white streak and faded print to appear on copies?


Most often on the PC940 this means your toner cartridge is getting low on toner. To prove this is the cause, just remove the toner cartridge and while keeping it relatively level, shake it side to side a few times. This will re-distribute the remaining toner in the cartridge. Re-install and make a copy. The black streak/faded copy should be much better. If so then I would go ahead and get a new cartridge on the way.

Check the scanning glass bar. If you scanned something that had whiteout on it, a lot of times some of the whiteout will get on the glass and will cause streaks in the prints. Clean it with alcohol.
