HP 5Si

I spotted black smudgy horizontal streaks on the paper, I have replaced the refurbished toner cart still gives me the same problem, do u think using the actual HP toner cart or installing maintenance kit will help solve this type of problem? I know this is not a repetitive defect image cuz there is only one streaks on the paper

I will appriciate your reply
thanks in advance

Assuming you are using letter paper, the horizontal streaks are actually vertical streaks. I wouldn't trust any refurbished toner cartridges, but you might want to take a look at the fuser assembly. If it has toner buildup on the upper roller, it would give you streaks in the center. If it's clean, then go for the toner cartridge.
