either a bad fuser or a bad toner cartridge.  Replace the Toner first.

I would order and install a maintenenace kit. It looks like a repetitive mark. This is usually caused by a roller. Could be a feed roller, or a roller inside the fuser or tonor cartridge. www.partsnow.com will sell you the kit and provide installation instructions if you need them.

We have already replaced toner cartridge.

Thank you both - I'll have to setup a service call since it will beyond the capabilities/job responsibilities of those at the printer.
