Hi, I can help with the issue.

Expert:  WesPCDr replied 1 year ago.

The magenta streaks are caused by a faulty drum. To fix the problem, replace the magenta drum cartridge.

They need replacing once this starts to happen.

Yes, in my experience, the drum causes this issue when printing that color.
