Can't see any detail in your pic. Could be old toner on drum or roller.

Hi Wizard - could it be the smudges on the right?

Hi Jmeader,

Wizard's advice is good. If this is not the cause, I would suspect the problem could be you have used a compatible cartridge.

These can work OK and you save money, whereas others will fail. Authentic cartridges etc. are the best.

I know this is a laser, but as an example, I sometimes refill Inkjet cartidges.This worked ok, until one printer produced labels that easily smeared. Transpired the labels were being used in a damp environment, coupled with the refill ink being water based, whereas ink in original cartridges from the printer manufacturer was oil based.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Mike - jmeader: the smudges on the right is usually caused by defects or dirt/toner stuck on the drum or transfer roller/belt. The OP specified streaks which are usually sharp lines along the direction of paper travel.

The smudges on the right are about 1.5 inches apart. If would be caused by a roller about .5 inch in diameter
