Streaks on all pages printed with DELL 3000cn printer

Each page output prints with a +--1-inch streak- mostly dark in color. THe streak runs thru the entire page vertically from top to bottom, and on every page printed.

I checked the drum and cleaned off the spongey roller - for about ten pages it was ok, then the problem started again ,..... and again after cleaning.

I replaced one cartridge- still problem persists.

Currently:
- printer has trouble 'calibrating'
-IT often reads 'replace drum...'
-There is much excess toner inside printer cavity- I have cleaned it out numerous times

On that product, it is just as likely that a single color drum is bad. Not the developer. That is a more likely problem then the developer.

SOURCE: Color Streaks down length of page

This is a laser printer, neither a copier nor a multifunction unit, therefore it has no glass. At least, I cannot find any glass in it.
I finally had an authorized Ricoh repair center examine it and found streaks on the black unit that pulls out of the right side (I forget the part's name, <$90). We replaced it and things are better but streaks of color remain. They suggested replacing the color one (about $400) but the cost is prohibitive right now, so I'll live with those streaks.
On a related note, I remain unimpressed with this printer's quality and inconsistency. For example, greys often print in pink; nothing has ever resolved this. I refuse to put any more money into it. When I can afford to do so, it will be replaced, probably by a Xerox Phaser.

SOURCE: 8400 blurry print

I had a similar problem. I discovered that the imaging drum was too hot. There is a temperature sensor that rides on the drum surface to monitor the temperature. You can see it if you lift the exit cover on the right side. The sensor is white, and has a thin probe which rides on the drum surface. There's a single screw accessible from the right side which holds it in place. A hole on that side will allow a screwdriver (torx) to access the screw and the little unit can be removed (be patient- it can be done!). Clean the probe with some alcohol and replace it. The problem is caused when the ink on the drum smears because it's too hot. Dirt (wax and oil)under the sensor probe prevents contact with the drum, and makes the printer think the drum is too cold.

SOURCE: Black streaks on paper

Could you describe these marks for us please.

Are they small specks or blotches? Bad Toner Cartridge

Are they lines:
Horizontal - Transfer Roller or Charge Roller
Vertical - Bad Toner OR Bad Fuser.

Note: A bad toner cartridge can render all of the parts listed here useless. Check for build up or lines on the cartridge reflective drum. Avoid light, as with film.

If they are a mix of both, the device needs to be cleaned with a can of compressed air. You must remove the cartridge, paper tray(s, and fuser to create clear path.

When printing 2 sided sheets our machine puts dark gray streaks on the paper after printing more than 6 pages. The streaks continually get larger until they cover most of the page.


When you are printing 2 sided sheets the reason you are getting streaks, is your first sided not dry yet. I know it is a laser printer, even laser you have waite a bit.

Sounds like the fuser.
stop the printing before it comes out of
the exit rollers by powering it off.
If half your page is good its the fuser.

DELL 3000cn Printing Problems


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.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks


Hey Chuck, Any chance you can post a scan of one of the faulty pages ? This will make it easier to assess the fault. Print off about 10 pages of a page that is affected by the lines. Look at each page and see if you can detect a recurring pattern over any of the pages. If there is a pattern, chances are it is probably the PCU that is marked.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks


Without actually seeing a print sample or the machine, my bet would be on the black print cartridge. Even though it reads a an acceptable level of toner, the cartridge itself sounds like it has developed a proble. 1. It's the most obvious 2. It't the cheapest place to start. If it does not correct the problem, you can still use it later. 3. It's the problem in about 80% of these types of cases. 4. I know it should be fine, but if things didn't go wrong, I wouldn't have a job! Let me know. If not we'll investigate further. Ed
