Black streaks on both side of paper when copy on glass


Throwing the machine away is the best recommendation. You have a bad drum/developer that is leaking some toner. Could be a bad cleaner blade for streaks on the front; fallen toner for streaks on the back. Careful cleaning, replace transfer roller. First, check the condition of the fuser assembly. If the soft roller is bad it will leave toner buildup on the teflon roller, and vice-versa. Start there.

Kyocera Mita 2050 there are streaks of toner appearing on the pages printed.


If you send a print job or print a report from the copier and there is no streaks then the problem is most likely the thin **** glass to the left of the large glass. It just needs to be claened.

If the streaks are happening when printing and copying then the problem is most likely your drum unit (MK-410) or possibly the fixing unit (FU-410), the fixing unit is the one that gets hot.

As the drum gets old it can cause print/copy issues and the cleaning blade that cleans the drum gets to the point it doesn't clean the drum properly causing streaks.

The heat roller has a teflon coating on it and as the roller gets older the teflon starts to come off and can effect prints/copies.

The drum unit should be replaced every 150,000 pages and the fixing unit every 300,000 pages on the KM-2050.

I hope this is helpful,
Shawn

My minolta ep 4000 copier prints with thick black streaks imprinted on page. what's wrong? is it the corona, the drum, or something else?


Most likely it is the drum cleaning blade. One indicator of the drum cleaning blade going bad is that the black lines will get worse as you run multiple copies. So if you make 10 copies for example, the last copy out will be streaked worse than the first copy out. Drum cleanig blades are about $30 bucks plus whatever your local service guy charges for a svc call.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

When copying original print has black line down the middle. Have replaced ink with new cartridge


Hello,

Open up the printer, clean image drum, couple it back and try again.

If the problem still persist, then it, means you will have to replace the image drum entirely. Once there is a defect on the image drum, it can not be corrected except by replacing.

There is a wiper blade in the drum which cleans excess toner. When that blade becomes defective it does not do it job. Look at it like a windshield wiper.

You can clean the windshield, but if the blade is defective the streaks will return.

Take care.

I have a Minolta CS Pro EP 1031 Printer that makes streak marks


Drum cleaning blade has gone bad. Especially true if the streaks seem to get progressively worse as you run multiple copies. In other words run 10 copies. If the last one out is worse than the first one out it is the drum cleaning blade. Cheap part...around $25

Black streaks on copy


This can be anything from something on the glass to charge corona dirty, laser dirty, drum or blade or fuser rollers need to be replaced. For the average person, the best you can do yourself is to make sure glass is clean. Question..... do you get this line if you're printing also? If yes then that would eliminate the glass and has to be something inside. If no, then look very carefully at the glass and long skinny glass on top, if it has that, for white out or something on the glass. Sometimes you won't even see spot unless you look at just the right angle. Good luck. Please rate this if it helps.

Big streaks on copies from Sharp SF-7800 copier, not fax machine.


You probably have some build up on the glass, which happens if you use the auto feeder most often. Alcohol type cleaner will remove with a very softcloth. One small dot will look like a long streak on a feeder, much like a streaked fax. The other issue is the photoreceptor belt has nicks or is dirty eaither way it needs to be replaced. Try the cleaning first and you may have to look hard for the small dots built up on the glass.

Copy star 3035


The drum unit may need to have the toner collection blade replaced. not the cleaning blade for the drum but the one below it that catches the toner cleaned off the drum. if this blade is old or damaged it losses its seal to the drum and drops tiny specks of toner onto the page.
Hope this helps...

Black streaks across the page


hello,first of all,make a copy true the adf,and the next on the platen glass,if both copys are good,then the problem is inside the machine,i.e.drum unit or fuser roller damage.
if the strikes only occurs,by using the adf,then cleaning the scanner platen glass,it is the small glass unit!!! on the left side,from the big platen glass..

good luck Sjeuf

Monroe 946 copier


The drum cleaning blade is located in the drum unit and is very much like a windshield wiper blade on your car and even has the same function. It cleans the drum of toner residue after each copy is made. A positive test to see if the drum blade is worn is to make two or three copies of an original and if the streaks are worse on the second copy and worse still on the third copy, then you can be fairly certain that your drum blade is bad and needs changing. Not a simple task, probably best left to a technician. You can do some serious damage to the drum if you're not careful. If the test that I described indicated that the drum blade isn't bad, then the next most common problem is a worn heat roller in the fuser. Not an easy thing to replace either. You can check this by making a copy and stop the machine just as the copy just reaches the exit rollers of the machine. After removing the copy, you can see that part of the copy has been through the fuser, the part of the machine that gets hot, and part has not reached the fuser. If the lines are on the copy that has passed through the fuser, but aren't there on the part of the copy that hasn't reached the fuser, then you can be sure that the lines are caused by the fuser roller.

Let me know if this helps.

Aloha,
Bill Monroe
