    Hello,

    printing with xerox 242 and suddenly I am getting grey/light black stripes across printing paper (even printing blank). It gets darker at the end of the print and repeats across paper. It is visible only on heavyweight 2 and 3 paper. On plain paper is not visible. It erases with the eraser, feels like dirty paper stripes.

    What should I clean or check?

    Tried to make photo or copy. Attached a picture of printing blank paper to see, but which is not very visible.

    Hope for the help. Thank you!

    I've measured - dirty stripe repeats every 9 cm

    Did you already clean the cleaning blade assembly? Or replace with a new one. Toner will build up in the auger over time if not cleaned. Sometimes you have to replace it with a new one.
