If the drum is a customer replaceable unit, you should just replace it. If it is something a technician would replace, I would recommend letting them do it. It will be messy and you could scratch the drum, negating any savings you would have. Ther may be a waste toner box. Be sure that is not overflowing. Also be sure that you are using the correct toner. Do not use a regular vacuum to clean the machine. The toner particles are too fine and will destroy the vacuum motor. You will also get one heck of an electrostatic jolt!

Hi, My Canon 3245 Imagerunner is streaking.

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!

I have a Canon iR1024A that is leaving black streaks down side of paper... I have changed the toner.. cleaned out where the toner goes... and changed the drum... nothing changed.. can you help me

If you have changed the drum then probably your fixing film was torn. Check if the black streaks on paper is erasable (not fixed on the paper). Check also for signs of film (gray on one side and brown on the other very thin plastic-like material) falling out from your fixing assembly (if you open the left side cover with caution sign the hot portion area).

COPIER imageRunner C3100N has an occasional streak down the page

Is it a grey/green colour, not one of the C,M,Y,K colours?

If so I think it will either be a worn out cleaning blade or drum.

Cannon ImageRunner 3300 streaking faxes/copies

First, do the streaks only appear on copies and faxes made using the document feeder? If yes, the thin strip of glass just left of the large platen probably has has a speck of dirt on it. The speck shows as a streak when the page scans over it. Clean with window cleaner, Viva towels and elbow grease. If you shine a flashlight on the glass its easier to find the specks.

If the streaks appear and you are not using the feeder tray, then call for service.
