If they are black streaks and they are always in the exact same place, open the cover and clean the skinny little scanning glass. It might be ink or lint. If it's white streaks then it's in the same place but it's dried correction tape or fluid, etc.
The glass scanner window (narrow strip of glass) needs cleaning. One "spot" of dirt will appear as a streak on the receiving end.
If you "copy" a document you can check the streak and see how effective your cleaning is.
You most likely have a bad toner cartridge, The light sensitive drum will probably have a score mark in it causing the issue. Do a "copy" before replacing it, and then afterwards to prove it it has been fixed.
pull the toner/drum unit out of the machine. on the top of the drum unit there is ether a blue or green slide lever. move the slide back and fourth 10-15 times. if you have canned air blow out the area where the slide is. reinstall the drum unit see if this works
On the Intellifax, there is a glass bar that runs across and allows the fax machine to read the image. Take out the entire drum unit and you should see that bar in the middle of the machine, careful it can be hot. Take an alcohol swab, or a q-tip dipped in alcohol and rub it from left to right on the glass bar. You may also see some spilled toner that is causing the streaks. Remove any toner with the alcohol swabs, do not use water or try to vacuum (huge mess if you do). You do not have to get all the toner, just make sure the glass bar is clean. That should do it.
You did not specify if sending or RX
open the part where you insert the papers to fax out (this is also in the troubleshooting of hte manual) look at the strip of glass is there anything on it?
Open the machine, remove toner and look at the strip on bottom of machine clean.
Yes it does, the rubber blade that cleans the drum is not doing its thing properly, hence leaving your mark, pull the drum unit out and expose drum by pulling back the cover underneath it, you should see your mark on the drum, don't touch drum with fingers or brush/clean it, it is photosensitive too so keep away from light for any period of time.
