Did you have the vertical line before replacing the drum or only since you've replaced the drum.
If it was there before, the line might be on the fuser.
If it just started then you might have a defective drum, did you use a new or refurbished drum? Is it a brother brand drum or a third party drum?
A good test to run is a half print test. That is when you print a page, a report of something, then open the printer door when you think the paper is halfway through the printer. Pull the page out and look for the vertical line, it it's there then you have a drum/toner/printhead problem. If the line is not present then the fuser is producing your defect and you should have the fuser cleaned and/or replaced. Sometime it takes a few tries to get the timing right to have the page in the right position when you open the door.
I will do some further research on your problem and get back to you in a bit.
