This usually happens if the print settings are wrong, open up the properties of the printer and check all the settings (make sure its set to A4 if thats what you're printing on, and see that colour is selected)
Most likely it is the drum cartridge. The other causes such as toner on the laser optics would not produce an on again off again print area. It would be blank the entire way down the page. Since the toner prints in patches down the right side it means it is coming from something that is "rotating" and that narrows it down to the drum.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
It is either your drum or open front cover see blue handle @ right hand side pull it out look at rignt hand side of printer and a door has opened (only small) pull the blue lever out and move the pad back andforwards a few times this cleans the glass.
It worked for me but I have to do it fairly often but it samve buying a new drum etc
switch off the printer then switch on again whilst holding the UP and DOWN menu scroll buttons simultaneously.
Then you can go to a TEST PRINT area and print off pages of idividual colour.
If the streaks appear on ALL prints its likely to be the laser unit. If the streaks only print on the COLOUR sheets ( not BLACK) then the problem lies with the drum or the transfer belt.
Remove the drum and turn it manually with the gog at the side and give it a clean with a soft LINT FREE cloth, do the same for the transfer belt and then you may have to run a few test prints to get it all reprimed but you should be OK.
