A vertical stripe that is consistent top to bottom could be a laser issue, it has prisms and lenses that could be dirty or even a bit of paper stuck covering the laser light window. Dig into it and look for any debris and clean the lenses.

you may know that this model of printers is very old
i think your cartridge is expiered try to change the cartridge if by the old one just to test....
if the new cartridge is the reason then you have to replace it
HI there have you tried the toner cartridge as this could also cause this problem? Also change the transfer roller and are the bands going from left to right or from up to down. If the bands are left to right change both if up to down more likely to be the toner cartridge.
take out cartridge and look at roller on bottom of printer, clean with clean cloth and try, also there is a slit ( or hole on the inside ( put your hand inside and try to touch the top of printer there is a hole there where the images go to the laser clean with clean lint free cloth.
With other laser printer that problem would be attributed to the drum being faulty. Your model of printer has the toner and drum built into one unit - the "cartridge".
You can try a different cartridge and see if that changes your printing results.
Another reason, which is less likely, but still possible it that your fuser film sleeve need to be changed. The fuser film is located deep within your printer and requires a technician to replace it.
