Sounds like the cartridges needs cleaning. You can do it on the printer by pressing Settings button -> Maintenance, hit check-> Clean Cartridge, hit check. It will print the "clean cartridge" page and this will help clear the nozzles on the cartridges and improve the print quality.
Also try to check the cartridge ink levels. Press Settings button -> Maintenance -> Ink Level.
If problem continues, try to insert a known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge needs replacement. Thanks.

Ink streaks


Ink streaks are usually caused by a buildup of died in on the print heads. There are two print heads in that unit. Remove one at a time and look for build up - clean it if you find any. Once you finish cleaning both print heads you will need to do a print head cleaning routine in the HP software to clear out any in clogging the print nozzles.

How can I cure streaking on the reverse of the paper? Epson S20.


streaking on the reverse side suggest dirty rollers.

1. remove cartridges form the printer
2. disconnect all cables
3. check full paper path for presence of debris, lint, bits of paper, remove if necessary (you can put printer on it's back or sides for esy removal)
4. mount on long skewers lint free clothing or tissue
5. wet tissue/cloth in isopropyl alcohol and whipe all rubber rollers on paper path till no discoloration to the tissue
6. connect all cables
7. insert inks and print test page

if necessary, you need to clean rollers again, but once is usually sufficient. to keep printer in good condition, you need to print at least one page per week and periodicaly clean the rollers, that depend on amount of printing done.

Phaser 3200 mfp laser printer leaves streaks on paper. First sheet is okay then rest get worst as printing continues.


One of two things.
If the streak is a line. No visible print in the streak, Then most likely the drun cleaning blade is bad and the drum unit will have to be replaced.
If the streaks are sort of reprint. a faint reprint of what is already on the page, then you need to replace the fuser.

Leaving black streaks down paper? Ink cartridge


If this started after cartridge was replaced, then it is probably defective.

Take the cartridge out and take a look at the print head. Clean the print head.
Put the cartridge back in
Try and feed paper (not printing anything on it, if you can not get it to just feed paper, print a blank page) and see if it still has lines. If so, you are probably going to have to clean ink from inside the paper feed area. If not, try using it for a while and if it starts again, get a replacement cartridge. You might want to save some of the bad prints to show the clerk and try to get the new cartridge under warranty.

When I print photos, they have uniform vertical streaks.


Issue: Banded or streaked prints
Solution: Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows)

Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows) The Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will decrease as the Print Quality setting is increased. Follow the instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing application.
  1. Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.

    Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.

  2. Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.

  3. Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
  1. Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.

  2. In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.

    Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.

  3. Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.
