Hp HP LaserJet 5SI

HP Laserjet 5Si streak

I have a LaserJet 5Si that recently began streaking. The streaks are 3 3/4 inches apart on both the top and the bottom of the page. At the top it’s a narrow streak about 1 1/2 inches long and the lower one is a bit wider but also about 1 1/2 inches long with visible columns/lines. I preformed the maintenance kit and replaced the fuser, separation roller and the transfer roller as well. This did not help and the print quality is exactly the same. Please advice.
Try a known good toner cartridge.
Good luck!

Second post with same answer. So the question now is do you ask again or try the cartridge. Personally I would of tried the cartridge before replacing all those parts. If you really want to isolate your problem though do a half test. Print a page and stop it (open lid) as its feeding through under the toner cartridge and see if the problem is already on the page. If so then replace the cartridge if not then double check your fuser.

I changed the toner cartridge and that solved the problem. Thanks for your help.
