I have just installed a new fuser oil bottle and now, when my print comes out of the printer, it has a stripe vertically where the ink has not fused to the paper.
I can rub it off with my finger.
I did not have this problem until I put a new fuser oil bottle in.

Re: Ink not fused onto the paper.
There will be a grove in the coating of the upper heater roller in the fuser assembly, inspect the fuser rollers, you should see coating missing.
These fuser are expensive and only have a expected life of 60 000 prints, if machine runs without oil, the coating wears. adding oil has probally lube the roller and released the built up toner that was covering grouve in roller

First your white horizontal lines are due to you not printing in the best quality. Go into the printing preferences and change the quality to best/quality.
The dots printed vertically are possibly due to ink getting onto the star wheels on the doc exit rollers. Also its possible that the printing media is a bit on the thin side and may need to be supported when exiting the machine.
Those should solve your problem. A new printhead wont make any difference.
The printer doesn't use ink. I'm thinking that your problem is that the toner is rubbing off the paper onto your hand. You probably have a defective fuser. In the grand scheme of things, the fuser gets hot and fuses (melts) the toner onto the paper. Your fuser probably isn't getting hot enough to fuse the toner. Get the fuser replaced.
I think extra ink make stripes. to remove those stripes follow the instruction:
1.open the top cover of your printer
2.find out a sponge that are in the left side of the printer bottom.
3.put off it and wash it well by using cold water. And fit it again. Then move the head left from right. Now put a soft tissue upon the printer head clining unit, then move the head again from left to right sothat printer head can reduce from ink. then move the head again and put off the tissue. Then on your printer your printer remain work.
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.
No, that is not the ink, That is a fuser problem.
The fuser needs to be replaced.
It is a very easy repacement. Cost is between 170-200 dollars if you don't have a service agreement.
One of the two rollers in the fuser has a problem and is not making good enough contact to fuse the image.
