Stripes in xerox docucolor 252

Dec 19, 2023
Good afternoon, I have a xerox dc252 printer which when printing a color image, it comes out with vertical stripes along the entire sheet, they only appear when I print in color. Streaks do not appear when I print in grays. I attach some images of the leaves with the stripes. I would be very grateful if you could help me solve this problem, thank in you advance.

Good afternoon. The issue you're experiencing with vertical stripes appearing when printing color images on your Xerox DC252 printer could be due to several factors:

Toner Cartridge: Check if the color toner cartridges are properly seated and not low on toner. Replace any cartridges that might be running low.

Drum Unit: The drum unit could be dirty or damaged, causing streaks. Try cleaning it according to the manufacturer's instructions or consider replacing it if cleaning doesn't resolve the issue.

Fuser Unit: Inspect the fuser unit for any signs of damage or wear. A worn-out fuser unit might cause uneven heating, leading to streaks on the prints.

Printer Calibration: Perform a color calibration on the printer to ensure accurate color reproduction.

Print Settings: Check the print settings to ensure they match the paper type and size. Adjust the print quality settings to see if it makes a difference in reducing the streaks.

If these steps don't resolve the issue, it might be best to consult a technician for a more in-depth assessment and potential repair of the printer.
