Sounds like a fuser issue. Here's a link to the service manual for free to help isolate the problem. Start with the troubleshooting section under image defects.

HP4+ print quality was perfect, but printer was jamming, so I replaced all the roller parts in the Maintenance Kit, which corrected all jamming! All the paper rollers and the transfer roller is now...


Run the 1/2 test.
Load paper in the manual feed tray.
Print anything that requires more than 2 sheets.
As the paper enters the printer open the top cover.
Remove the toner cartridge.
Look down at the paper.
If it looks like the problems you described, change the toner.
If it looks good, reinstall the old transfer roller and rerun the test.
If transfer roller doesn't fix it, you have a bad fuser. Put the old one in and repeat.

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).

Continuous streak - top to bottom - on printout.


Try looking for lint, paper, or anything that could have hung up inside.
A piece of something could be blocking the imaging unit.
In the old days, there were wires in the laser printers and papers would shed and leave paper hanging on the wires.

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.

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.

2 IN. GRAY AREA DOWN SIDE PAPER


There are several things that can cause this. A worn toner cartridge and/or transfer roller can cause vertical smears, but it may also be a worn fuser assembly. The teflon coating on the fixing (heat) roller wears off, and leaves vertical streaks of varying widths on the pages. Sometimes you may see "ghost" images on the pages for the same reason. Open the back door of the printer, and hold down the exit guide on the fuser (carefull, it may be very hot). There are two long rollers, the lower one is black, the upper roller is either grey or shiny brown. That's the teflon coating. See if it's peeled or damaged. If so, replace the fuser assembly.
