Yes the lines are in the same places every time. ill try to take the IBT belt out and see what happens. My bigger problem is this magenta issue though. The machhine only has 2500 color prints on it, a year old and it goes bad this quickly. Ill pull the drums out and look back there, hopefully I can see something. I feel it has to do witht he black drum, it only did this after I replaced it. Youd figure black would go on all colors then. Sigh.
