You have probably made sure that there are no tiny scraps of paper in the machine or no globs of inks in the cartridge slots.

Black streak on scanned printed copies


Hi

Open your scanner lid and make sure their is no dirty marks sitting on your scanner glass. Also does this happen on the scanner glass or when using the ADF? If its on the ADF its most likely that the glass is dirty and needs to be cleaned. 6c66c542-b5d2-4d0a-8a21-00c054973a29.png

How do you clean the copper parts of the cartridge


Turn the printer on and then fill the paper tray with paper.


If this is an HP printer, press the "Setup" key until "Tools" is shown on the control panel display screen. Follow equivalent steps for other printers by reading the user manual.



Press "OK." If your printouts continue to be faint, show white line streaks or smudges, go to the next step to clean the contacts on the print cartridge.


Open the print cartridge access door. Wait until the print cartridge moves all the way to the right side and completely stops.


Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet.


Press down on the top of the cartridge and lift it up toward you holding it by its sides. Avoid touching the copper area when you lift it out of its slot. Sit it down on a flat surface, such as a table.


Wet a lint-free cloth with water and squeeze out any excess.


Pick up the cartridge by its sides and avoid touching the copper area.


Gently wipe the copper contacts of the print cartridge with the dampened, lint-free cloth. Be careful not to wipe the copper nozzle part on the bottom of the copper cartridge.


Let the print cartridge dry for 10 minutes and then plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.


Reinstall the print cartridge. If your printouts continue to be faint, show white line streaks or smudges, go to the next step to clean the nozzle area (copper bottom part of the print cartridge.).


Repeat steps 4 through 7 and then gently wipe the nozzle area with a clean, dampened lint-free cloth.


Let the print cartridge dry for 10 minutes and then plug in the power cord back into the electrical outlet.


Reinstall the print cartridge. If the ink is faint, or streaks or lines show on your printed pages, the old print cartridge may be defective and cannot be cleaned. Replace the old print cartridge with a new one.

My printouts have a very dark haze over them.......the printed letter are fine but it looks like the print cartrige is dumping ink on my paper as it prints. It look like a bad fax copy. What is the...


Either you purchased a a bad quality remanufactured toner cartridge or your fuser film is damaged.

If there is some kind of debris in black color that is on printouts, your fuser film might be damaged. Have a printer technician replace it.

If there is no debris, only bad quality printouts, it's the toner cartridge that needs replacement.

HP L7700 officejet printer leaves streaks on black ink lines only. Have cleaned heads repeatedly, changed black and color cartridges - nothing works.


Print in grayscale (black area streaking only) If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE: This step does not apply to color printouts.
  1. In the application you are printing from, click File , and then click Print .
  2. Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties .
  3. Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality .

Some lines of type in printouts have white lines.


White streaks on an ink jet printer mean a clogged print head. Click on the printer manufacturer's software and do a head cleaning. If that doesn't work, you'll have to buy a new cartridge.

Skipped Print Areas on Printouts


You may have a bad toner cartridge, if the cartridge has contaminants in it, it will not put toner on the drum in these areas, Try removing and giving the cartridge a good shake, try installing a new or at least another cartridge to see if the problem is here.

Hope this is of some help.

Laser jet produces printouts that are smudged and dark


Remove the toner cartridge and use a soft cloth to wipe the photo drum clean of toner. Put it back and try again, if you still get bad prints, then you need a new toner cartridge.

Lines down both the left side of the printouts.


good day,

this usually occurs when you print large volume of copies of documents that goes beyond the printable area of the paper, some powders stick in the roller of your printer hence making the gray streak.

you can check if the rollers have accumulated some powder, if so, have the rollers cleaned.

i hope this will help.
