Re: Line down left side of paper
It sounds like your having a fuser issue. Look at the lower rear side of the machine for the door. Remove the door by pressing in on the lower left tab. Remove the fuser to view the rollers. If the rollers have melted toner on them, that's your problem.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

There are several things that could be causing this I will TRY to address or suggest on all of them.
1.) If only appears when copying, double check the glass and make sure those areas are cleaned.
2.) If happens at all times, it could be the toner cartridge in the unit (especially if started when just changed). I would try another cartridge (later if you can stand the copies w/ the lines or if you have a spare).
3.) I have seen a lot of these machines do this putting vertical lines down the side of the paper because the fuser assembly has worn out and needs replaced.
I have seen #3 occur sometimes when paper gets jammed in a machine and someone pulls it out too rough, this can cause the slick cover over the fuser to crack, break, or bunch up, needing replaced.
If this only occurs with copies (not with printed jobs), then your problem is most likely dust/dirt on the scanner (not necessarily the glass), or on the optics that feed the image to the scanner. If it's on print jobs also, it could be a simple image drum problem (they wear out over time, and frequently manifest their impending failure with vertical lines appearing down printed/copied pages.
hello does the grey line appear if you scan true the "upper" scanner.(set paper on top of printer and sscan it that way)? you should also clean the smal slim glass that is at the side of the big scanner glass. also try to remove all cartridges and tilt them side to side several times. then put them back and test your printer.
It sounds like you fuser assembly is worn. The part on the fuser assembly that you are having a problem with is the heat roller assembly located in the fuser. You can have a technician replace that for you at you local HP repair center, Her is the part number for the fuser assembly.
inside the printer on the paper pulling roller there will be some powder got collected on it due to this a black line appears on the paper.the power faLLS FROM THE TONER WHEN THE WASTE POWDER COLLECTING SECTION IN THE TONER GETS FULL SO IT FALLS on the roller while printing and this happens.take a air blower .bolw in to all the parts of the printer.keep the printer off .remove the toner cartridge.and keep the toner assessing door opened.and then blow the air in the printer.and then check out.
I believe there are 3 possible causes for this issue; toner drum, fuser or transfer roller - more than likely I would dismantle the printer and check for lines on the fuser. But just in case remove the toner and carefully release the flap to reveal the toner drum - if that is scored and the lines correspond to those on the print-out thats the cause.
u better check the haftone test first,when printer starts to pict the paper,just let the printer to print paper,stop the paper before entering the fuser unit located back side,if the output is perfect,then it is the problem with the fuser assy,pls revert for further solution or query
