HP LaserJet 1200 Series Streak Down Middle

A gray streak about 3/4" wide prints down the middle of every page. I've tried cleaning the toner cartridge area with a lint-free cloth and cleaning the printer media path per the instruction manual but no results. I've also tried putting in a new toner cartridge. Any ideas?
If you see the streak on the toner cartridge drum, then it's a bad toner cartridge. If you don't, then this kit will fix it http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kits/hp/K94

I have a similar problem, but mine is on the left hand side of the page...it appears that it "smudges" and repeats what is printed above until the ink "dries". It is like the ink is sticking to the drum on the far left hand side. If the page does not have anything to print to the last inch on the left hand side...there is no problem. Anyone out there know an easy fix. This is an old all-in-one machine that has over 170,000 prints thru it.....probably not worth the repair, but have so many C7115 cartridges for it....any help would be appreciated.
