First I would recommend cleaning the printer. When you change the toner there is sheet of paper that comes with the toner cartridge that explains how to properly clean the printer. If you do not have that handy, there is a panel on the left hand side of the printer that you need to open. Once the panel is open you will see the waste toner bottle; leave it in place. Above and to the right of the waste toner bottle will be a green nob. Pull this green nob slowly in and out three or four times. This will clean the charging wire. Next underneath the green nob there should be a piece that looks like a rectangular box when you pull it out. I believe it is green as well. This is the charger grid. With each toner you should have gotten a small slate blue box with a plastic lid that has a piece of felt under the plastic lid. Remove the lid and this should slot in under the long, rectangular charger grid. Move this back and forth three or four times and than remove the slate blue box. Gently push the charger grid all the way back in and close the access panel.
If this does not fix your problem I would recommend getting service from wherever you purchased the printer as you may have damaged the drum.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

Basically, you remove the cartridge and developer all at once, then remove the waste toner bottle, then push the grey tab in to release the drum cartridge (be very, very careful in removing and putting back in. Any scratches on the drum and you will enjoy black spots permanently on printouts).
On the right side of the grey charger section is a tab you can use to release it. Do this, then put the drum away in a light tight back to prevent damage to it.
The reason why this Kyocera printer doesn't have the primary charger wire cleaner is because it did away with it. It now charges via a black fuzzy looking roller on top which is like the secondary corona charger wire, which then applies it to a roller, which then applies it to the drum. I think this is nice since it should prevent printer quality problems better since there is nowhere for oxidation to really collect. But, OTOH, it does happen anyhow.
I cleaned mine off and the streaks disappeared. I used a non amonia based cleaner to help, since I didn't find any dust on it to begin with. Whatever you choose, do not get your fingers on it, or it will put oil onto the rollers and that will make it worse.
Worked for me.
