Heavy black streak on the back of the printed page. worst when the printer is turned on.

AWhen using the printer after it has been off for several hours, the first several pages coming through the printer have a heavy black streak (like a tire tread) appearing from top to bottom on the BACK of the printed page. After you run several pages, it finally goes away. It is so heavy that there is ink smeared on the bottom of the printed page delivery tray in alignment where the ink is streaking on the back of the printed pages.

The problem lies with in the waste ink. The way canon have designed the way for the waste ink to get absorbed in a songe, that lies next to the rollers that help the paper out of the printer.
They lie underneith the metal cover if you open the printer lid you will see it.
What happens the waste ink gets to a place where it builds up and up and up, then comes into the area where the rollers lie and so when the paper is fed out you have a black line down the back of your page.
The only way to stop it is by opening up the printer if you know how to, if you dont, dont try it. Then cleaning the roller and blocking the area where the ink is coming in.
Once all that is done you shouldnt have any problems.

SOURCE: Heavy black stripe on back side of every printed page

This is probably due to miss alignment, there is an option of test page which will be scanned to allign the cartridge, if ur's a all in one printer. This test page is printed at the first time and scanned instantly for first time operation.

Thankyou

SOURCE: smeared lines

Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

dear friend

looks like problem related with refilled cartridges

are you using refilled cartridges??

if yes then you have to check whether they are leaking or not,

if they are leaking, you have to maintain cleaning level

thats all you can do

thanks

if you are familiar with ilumina menu search for the ID Test Pattern. Print test using 11 x 17 page.
On the copy you will see which of the drums need to replace, if the copy has vertical or horizontal lines on it the drum which ever color shows it has to be replace.

Try to print clean page ,
Print a cleaning page During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer and can cause print quality issues such as toner specks or spatter, smears, streaks, lines or repeating marks. Follow these steps to clean the printer's paper path.

  2. On the printer's control panel, touch the Menu button.
  3. Touch Configure Device .
  4. Touch Print Quality .
  5. Touch Process Cleaning Page .
A Cleaning message appears on the printer control panel display while the cleaning is taking place. The cleaning process takes a few minutes to complete.

You might need to repeat the cleaning process to thoroughly clean the printer. Print a few more pages to see if the problem is resolved.

Try cleaning the laser lens using the laser lens cleaning wand. However, it is likely that your black cartridge needs to be replaced based on the troubleshooting from the Minolta manual. Sorry,

Our copies are streaky like the drum is not clean.... help! There is black streaks on the top of all of our copies on our canon imagerunner 3300.


A) Black Streaks, Shadows, And Ghosting
Adjust the printer's lightness/darkness setting to 2-3 different variables and see if problem disappears. Look at the fusing assembly - is the roller torn or does it have any black buildup? Use caution!!! It gets HOT!

Try another toner also.

I have started getting streaks on Image Runner 2020


Try to print something, if there is any streaks?If no the problem is in copy glass (dadf or platen glass).

If there is streaks on print also,it could be the drum unit ( pull the drum unit out and see if on drum surface is any black streaks), fixing film is worn out, and in the worst case you have problem with toner unit ( on toner unit you have current leackage ) and you need (in best case) clean the contacts on toner unit, and in more expencive case tochange the toner unit.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks


Hey Chuck, Any chance you can post a scan of one of the faulty pages ? This will make it easier to assess the fault. Print off about 10 pages of a page that is affected by the lines. Look at each page and see if you can detect a recurring pattern over any of the pages. If there is a pattern, chances are it is probably the PCU that is marked.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks


Without actually seeing a print sample or the machine, my bet would be on the black print cartridge. Even though it reads a an acceptable level of toner, the cartridge itself sounds like it has developed a proble. 1. It's the most obvious 2. It't the cheapest place to start. If it does not correct the problem, you can still use it later. 3. It's the problem in about 80% of these types of cases. 4. I know it should be fine, but if things didn't go wrong, I wouldn't have a job! Let me know. If not we'll investigate further. Ed

Black lines (streaks) printing on left of page on my ricoh 2000n


Running cardstock lightly misted with water or dilute cleaning solution through several times can help. Use either the feed button or print using a program that allows you to print blank pages.
