Toner printer is printing pages with a white line from the top to the bottom of the page

It looks like the toner is not making contact with the paper in one place which leaves a line on the page of empty space. What do I need to clean/ how do I clean it? Also, I changed the toner cartridge and printer about 30 pages with the new cartridge and it still has the same problem.

    I unscrewed the carriage holding the toner and cleaned everything that I could reach with a microfiber cloth. There was a lot of dust in it. After I put everything back together, the line went away and it has been printing well ever since.

SOURCE: Vertical black line on all print outs

1) Check the cartridge. Look at the egg color drum and see if there is any built up toner. If there is then wipe off with soft cloth and reinstall.
2) Does this happen when coping from the flat bed and the doc feeder at the top?
If it it's only from the top then there is a glass lense that might have white out on it.
This is common when using white out and not letting it dry long enough.
To get to the lense it my be tricky but if the top of the feeder open a little from the top pop it open and
the glass is a thin 1/4 strip. Wipe it clean then try again. Hope this helps. Boats

SOURCE: Faint vertical lines on Samsung ML-2010

Was the toner remanufactured/ compatible?
Sounds to me like the doctor blade in the cartridge is 'gummed' up and not allowing the toner to flow evenly across the Developer roller......try another cartridge

Canon i3235


Are the lines across the page, in the direction of text, or from top to bottom. If from top to bottom, watch the scanner bar with the cover up, see if anything looks odd. If the paper moves in this machine, like from an auto feeder, it could pick up a streak from something in the path.
Checking, this unit is a laser printer. When replacing toner, there usually is a little tab thingy that is supposed to be moved back and forth over a little wire. The wire must be kept clean, too. Also, there may be a white bar with a glass cover that is to be cleaned very carefully every time toner is changed. Find this piece of glass, a speck of dust is probably your culprit.

Hp 8000n is ghosting excess toner on prints. Why?


Perhaps, but first clean up the exposed parts of the printer where the toner may travel before it makes contact with the paper. Also, the fuser may need to be cleaned or replaced. Post your problem directly with HP on the HP website.

HP 2840 printing two thin black lines from top to the bottom of the center of the page is that a fuser kit problem?


It could be a fuser problem.
Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print a few pages. As the paper gets
1/2 way into the printer, open the cover. Look down at the paper in the printer.
If it has 2 thin black lines, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. If there are no lines the fuser is probably bad.

When you print each page has a gray/black line running down the page from top to bottom about 2.5 inches from the edge of the paper. Sometimes it is darker and other times it is lighter. We have tried...


While the line is showing up on the output pages.
Stop printing and put paper in the manual feed tray (tray 1).
Start printing again. As a page gets pulled into the printer about 1/2 way open the top cover.
Pull out the toner and look at the page inside the printer. If it doesn't have the grey/black line, get the fuser replaced. It is defective.

I am getting a white line on my pages that go from the top of the page to the bottom. What could cause this?


A line all the way down the page means you have something blocking the imaging module like a bit of dirt or a piece of torn paper. Look in the area where the white line is, or it also could be toner being scraped off the page near the fuser, in that case you may see a smudge next to the line.
