That is a dirty glass. The 1 inch or less wide glass on the left side of the machine has a very small spec on it.
You can clean it with a regular piece of paper and alcohol. Don't be afraid to clean it with some decent pressure.
The reason why you get the line in the feeder and not off the glass is that when you run a copy off the glass the lamp scans the immage, when you run through the feeeder the lamp parks under the glass and the movement of the document makes the print.
You may have some white out, or just some ink off an original on that piece of glass, but keep that clean.
Most people don't think that small piece of glass has a purpose, but it does. Sometimes the blot on the glass is so small you cant see it, and you need to remove that glass and hold it up with a piece of paper behind it to see the spot. It can be a very very small spot. But that is where your issue is.

HI. My Sharp AL-1655CS Laser Printer is making an extremely loud noise when printing and when the paper comes out its all jammed like an acordion. Can u please help me?


It's going to be the fusing unit that needs to be replaced. It's also a good idea to replace the gear in the machine that drives the fuser at the same time. Both are available here: http://olsonbros.com/sharp/specs/al1655cs.html
