I have had this problem with a couple of our C1100's the solution is simple but a bit fiddly.
open the lid and remove the photoconductor unit. what you need to do is clean the glass panel through which the laser shines (it is there honest). It id directly behind the toners but down near where the paper sits. Look at the photoconductor and see where the blue roller sits in the printer. This roller has the laser shone on it and then picks up the toner relaying it onto the belt in the photoconductor.
What i did was get a wad of strong tissue and use a screndriver to wedge it down the rear of the toners (in between the toners and the black plastic bar as you look into the printer with the photo conductor removed) and then slide it back and forth. I actually learned this one form some Minolta QMS printers we have, but the glass plate was in plain view on those.
Basically what we had happen was that some toner had dropped onto the glas and was blocking the laser from hitting the roller and this lead to blank (or faded) strip along the length of a page.
I suppose a smallish paintbrush would do the same thing.

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

This is a Transfer Belt Error - "Worn Out".
This is not a consumable item. Have had to contact Epson direct who have arranged for a service engineer to replace the offending item.

The problem may well be that the drum needs cleaning. There is a plastic flap on the rhs of the machine. Open that and you can pull a long lever out. You also need to let down the front cover and pull out the lever on the right hand edge that faces you. Then extend the long lever at the side as far as it can go and push it in and out a few times. This should solve the problem. Put the front lever back and close the cover. It took me ages to find this - Epson are not good at highlighting it,.
