Did you try the clean head function and examinte the test result. Sometimes the inks will stick on the connnection pad inside the printer. If this happens, you have to take out the cartrige and clean the contacts on the pcb. Try other ink cartrige and see if the problems stick to one ink cartrige or caused by hardware failure on printer.

The left hand side of each page prints some streaky dark lines. I've tried to clean it and put it in cleaning mode but nothing works. Help please!


Remove the toner cartridge. Turn it over and slide open the gate that covers the drum. Do you see streaks on one end of the little colored cylinder? (drum)
If so then the streaks are coming from the cartridge.
90% or better of the time, especially on HP's the print quality issues are coming from the cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

The printed pages are coming out really streaky. We have tried cleaning it, but no joy. Any advice?


Print a few pages. As they are printing open the cover. Remove the toner cartridge. Look down at the page that was being printed. If it is not "streaky" look at the fuser, it probably needs replacing.

If that page is "streaky" replace the toner cartridge.

Poor print quality- streaky lines across the page


The problem might be with the type of paper you are using. Some printers require different paper types. Check the manufacturers website to see what kind of paper you need.

Streaky printing


Hi,
At most cases of printer, especially which have done refill at cartridge, print quality is poor or streaky. Many factors influencing this printed result. To overcome print quality is poor, maybe following tips can usefull to prevent printed pages are missing lines or streaky.

First step is ordinary to be done many people when print quality is streaky that is doing cleaning. To get good printed result, sometime this facility is used more than once.
Use Ink Refill with Quality Nicely
For printer have refilled, sometime the quality of printing is also influenced by ink. If will fill your printer again, use ink which the was quality of nicely. I have tested some refill inks at cartridge which have been ascertained still nicely ( sorry: I do not want to publicize result of this attempt). In the reality result make me surprise, there ink of refill making the printed quality is crummy. To choose ink refill read following tips :
  • See viscosity of ink, every merk of ink refill have difference of viscosity. Don’t use Ink refill too jell. Difference of this viscosity is no measure reference viscosity of ink from factory maker of printer
  • Don’t fear to try some inking merks. Done this, you’d find refill ink fitt with your printer. I now only using one merk of refill ink ?.
  • This suggestion of forum, but I still not yet proved. May believe or not. Good ink aroma of soft usually.
Change Original Cartridge
This is last choice. A lot not like to do this ways, because price of original cartridge still costly. Alternative, you can use compatible cartridge which the was price of cheaper than original cartridge. At newest printer, usually there are two until four cartridge in one printer. And price four same cartridge almost at the price of printer even there are some costlier.

Let me know !

Thanks

the messages you get for cartridges other than the original are not trustful. You will get the right reading for original(from Brother) cartridges. Some ink is poor for printing photo quality.

not any refillable ink is right for printing photos, sometimes too dark, sometimes you don't get the right mix of colors.

Hi, When I've worked on printers with this problem in the past it usually comes from the high voltage power supply going bad. There is also a low voltage power supply that runs everything except the actual printing so your printer will still operate without any errors but the print quality will go bad. The high voltage power supply is located under the bottom of the printer and it's too hard to replace. I can't advertise for any place on this site, but if you type in the part that you need into a search engine and look for parts on everyone's favorite bidding web site you should find the parts you need. Good luck.
