The glass is smudged or dirty or the scanner bar may have dirt on it. Cheaper to just replace the machine.

Veritcal streak on left side of paper. Streak is light gray


Hello,

Vertical streaks are usually caused by a bad fuser. The fuser roller has a teflon caoting and when this coating gets scratched or worn it causes image defect to appear on the paper. The fuser for the 4250 is part number RM1-1082 and you can get them from Amazon.com or other online sites. Here is a link to an article that shows how the fusers can cause the vertical image defects like you have.
