2 words. Toner Cartridge.
90% of all print quality issues on laser based printers such as this are caused by a defect in the toner cartridge. Swap the cartridge and fix this problem. If you dont have a spare try removing the toner cartridge and looking at the drum cylinder in the cartridge. If you see any kind of similar black line on the drum you will have proof that it is the cartridge. The ONLY other possible cause would be the fuser unit. But my money is on the toner cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

This was my exact problem. When scanning from the ADF, I had a vertical black line down every page. I cleaned the larger glass surface several times with no effect. Then, I discovered that ADF scans do NOT use the large glass area, but use the smaller, thinner glass area on the left side. It has a piece of thin plastic over the top of the glass. The scanner is fixed and the paper rolls through this area. So, if a speck of dirt is under the thin plastic piece or on top of the glass or on top of the thin plastic, it results in a black line down the whole page. Aha, so now I cleaned the thin plastic (both sides) and the top of the glass under the thin plastic - actually saw the black dot that was causing the problem and voila, problem solved.

There is a black line going down the middle of the page when I photocopy something

Because you haven't mentioned what kind of printer you have, I'll have to guess at giving an answer. I have to assume that you are using the automatic document feeder(ADF). Lift the scanner lid. To the left of the big glass rectangle there should be a thin glass strip. That is your problem. Clean it good. Glass cleaner works fine.

A black line is printed down the middle of pafe

The problem may be from either from the toner cartridge or the settings of the printer. change the toner first and see whether he problem still persist and also make sure that the settings of the printer on your system is ok, if the problem still persist after doing all this then it implies that you need to service your printer.

Black line going down the middle of the page

lift the auto feeder and clean the scanner glass that your pages scan across -it is dirty. You can make a copy afterward and this will tell you if you have solved the problem.

Blank Streaks

streaks are caused either by the toner, drum, lamp or fuser.

If you make a copy and it does not show a streak then it was done by the person sending the fax. BUT, check this,

open door and take out toner cartridge. look for a thin glass that is on the bottom of the machine and wipe it. Toner spills will cause a black streak.
