I got Minolta CS PRO EP 1030 and it first had different problem: it printed black line from top to bottom of page near the edge of page. I cleaned the PC drum which had black continuous line. Black line disappeared but now it prints white line from to to bottom of page. It's not completely white, but the image is really really faint at that line. White line is almost at the middle of page, so it isn't at same place as the black line was and it is thinner, about as wide as pencil. It's always at the same horizontal position, running vertically across the copy.
Between these problems there was like 1 or 2 good copies with no additional black or white lines.
I've tried cleaning the PC drum again, cleaning the PC drum charge corona and cleaning the image transfer/paper separator coronas. I've also cleaned all mirrors and lens. I have also checked that there's toner left.
Any ideas what might be the problem?

Then was the developer changed for the last thime?? It is posibile that some paper dust or other stuf to form some litle balls that block the developing mixture behind the doctor blade and come whith white lines in the copi.
