Hello
This issue is caused by the drum starting to fail. the Drum is what transfers the Toner to the paper and when it fails will cause streaking, lines and fading issues.
I hope this helps Regards GM

    Maybe not - If you open the top, remove the main drum and look straight down past the color cartridges, you may see some toner on the laser window. If so, carefully wipe with a chamois/lint free cloth.

I get several vertical white lines in my prints.


Do you have enough ink in your printer? This can be a problem. A faulty drum/roller could also be a cause which in that case will need to be replaced. Since you have done your part i guess the rest should be handeld by an expert personally.
good luck.

Printer leaves two white lines when it prints.


I had a similar problem with my 2430DL only with one fairly prominent white line instead of two. I read troubleshooting tips in manual for this problem and first suggestion was to wipe laser lens clean with a soft cloth. I did this and no more white line! If you do not have your manual please email me and I can forward you PDF manual. syberspirit@yahoo.com

White vertical stripe on color images when they're printed


You may have some dust on the imaging window (printer head). Remove the toner cartridges and clean it with some tissues.

Open the top cover. Remove the drum (part with long green handle). Below the drum you will see a strip of glass about 4-5 inches long. Take a cloth and wipe across the glass.

This will normally clear up any white lines in your print.
