With that machine the toner cartridge also contains developer. Without getting too in depth, it sounds like maybe your toner cartridge is leaking a bit of developer which takes with it a bit of toner. Developer is made up of tiny metal particles which are supposed to stay inside the developer unit. As the seals wear in the developer unit (which is part of the cartridge) it allows a little to leak out causing the problems you are seeing.
When you take the toner cart. out, at the rear side (part that goes the furthest into the machine) you'll see a white foam seal. If you notice some excess toner (and probably developer) sticking straight out from that, it could be that the seal has a jagged edge which is dragging developer off of the magnetic roller and depositing it on the drum making the line you speak of on the left hand side.
Also check to make sure the copier is sitting level, if it's not then the concentration of toner at one end of the developer unit is too great and some can be allowed to spill out.
So in short, it's probably not the drum that's at fault, it's more likely the toner cartridge.
Is it worth replacing? There's no easy way to answer that. If the machine is used in a fairly high volume workplace, it's probably worth replacing. If you could get by with a smaller cheaper machine (brother, HP, lexmark etc.) that does printing, scanning, faxing and copying you may be better off.

If you have some mechanical skills and a steady hand you can change the drum. However it worth the money to pay a "pro"to do it. Also you may want to replace the cleaning blade too.
1. Open the front cover - where the toner is.
2. Remove the black cover - 2 screws
3. Remove a little stopper at the bottom of the drum unit + 1 screw
4. Disconnect the drum unit cable.
5. Take off 2 screws which secure the Drum Unit.
6. On top of the Drum unit you should see 2 white plastic stoppers - front and back side ends - You have to push them inside to keep the cleanng blade away from the drum.
7. Remove the MCH assembley - 1 screw.
8. Remove the front separation claws + plate - 2 screws.
9. Remove the Drum Shaft
10. Replace the Drum
There are few details about how to manipulate a Drum - Do not touch the surface, do not expose it to intense light...
