    I have an IGen5. Has anyone seen this streaking in the process direction? It is in all colors, it moves somewhat in the process direction but is always in the same place on inboard-outboard direction. Is this the photosensor belt? I can't really see any damage to it.

    Thanks all for pitching in, so far someone always nails the problem!

    Had this problem a few times. Only seemed to happen on 80# coated text stock. The problem was the TAB blade was bad. Changed it and we were good as new.

    We cleaned the cpuc and bead magnet and the streaks are gone!

    And the streaks are back. I am putting in a service call, it does look like the TAB blade is likely the culprit.

    Indeed. Correct again, tech replaced it and running smoothly with #80 coated stock. Thank you a million. Thanks for all you guys for the help too!
