Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have done all I can through maintenance applications. I continue to get a vertical white streak down the paper as well as the paper roller does not appear to be pushing the paper through so I get 2 to 3 lines or print on one line.
Usually when a printer can't feed paper evenly anymore, it's worn out. As long as you are using fresh paper and not over or under loading the paper tray, the rollers should feed the paper ok.

SOURCE: vertical streaks
The toner forms small lumps and get stuck on the doctor blade of the cartridge. Where there are the lumps it blocks the toner from getting on the roller. Removing the doctor blade and cleaning it with a soft cloth and alcohol can solve your problem.
Send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further help in doing it.

SOURCE: Lines on Paper
Under the drum there is a thin ****-glass. Make sure there is nothing on the glass. Do not use compressed air to remove the debris from the glass. Use a dust cloth or such. Using air will blow the debris into the laser unit and it will have to be taken apart to be cleaned.

vertical lines on prints usually means either the drum's cleaning blade is not cleaning the drum (or the drum is damaged) or the fuser is scored. scored means that the protective coating on the fuser rollers is damaged. I would check the rollers on the fuser (the hot part of the printer right near the paper exit) for any lines on it, if you look at your prints, you should see them in the same location on the fuser. if you do not see any lines on the fuser rollers, then replace the drum.
