Question about Samsung ML-2510 Laser Printer
I could be wrong, but I think it's in the toner cartridge. The drum - the roller that the image is formed on - has a soft, plastic blade rubbing against it to clean off excess toner after each print. If a clump of toner gets stuck under the blade, a line is printed down the page where that part of the drum isn't cleaned as well. Between prints, the drum keeps turning, and may be able to clean itself better than in a single revolution. It's a theory, anyway.
Pull out your toner cartridge and look at the drum to see if there's a black line around it at one end. You can't get to the cleaning blade without risking ruining the drum and the cartridge; the cure is just to get a new cartridge. If yours is fairly new, take it back to the store that sold it to you, along with a print sample. They might exchange it.
If the drum doesn't have a line around it, you can test it by deliberately jamming the machine. It's scary, but if you've unjammed jams before, you can do it again. Start a print job, then kill the power when you think the page is right in the middle of the printer. Open the printer and remove the toner cartridge. Look for that black line on the page before it reaches the drum, between the drum and the fuser, and past the fuser. (The fuser is the pair of hot rollers that pinch the page tightly and melt the powdered image into the paper. Any part of the image that hasn't made it into the fuser is still powder and will rub off.)
If the line doesn't show up until after the hot rollers, then I was wrong about the toner cartridge, and you're looking at a fuser problem.
