This print defect can be caused by a foreign object or substance on the outside of the scanner assembly, usually located on the plastic cover that the paper passes over.

The fax scanning unit/encoder is dirty.

The fax scanning unit is like a camera. It take a picture of the document.

The glass plate is dirty and you may purchase a FAX CLEANING SHEET.

Officedepot

or similar product to clean out the dirty area.

The dark strip is cause by semi-dry wipe out correction ink.


Give your unit a good cleaning and let me know.

the problem is in the scanner, open it up and see if you can find any smudges, and clean any obstruction, any ink, liquid eraser residuals, can cause this part to appear as lines on your copied faxed image.

If it makes verticle lines only when using the document feeder it is most likely a dirty glass strip over the scanner light bar. If it makes verticle lines in all modes (printing, flat bed scanning/copying, receiving faxes) it could be the fuser or a dirty glass over the laser where ever the laser images to a drum roller (usually a larger green roller). It is possible that this green drum roller is inside the toner - if so - replacing the toner cartridge could fix it. Maybe you could try an old used toner to see of the problem changes - if so - it is very likely that a new toner would fix your print quality issue.
