hp5si pages with smudges!

Printer: HP 5si
Could someone please help me identify what could be the problem with this printer? It printed pages that has smudges on the top right corner of the page. Any idea what it might be?
Here are some images of what the smudge looks like. Hopefully someone could recognize what the problem is. tia

Most likely, it's coming from the toner cartridge, but the fact that it's horizontal, not vertical and only once on the page makes it kind of strange. Definitely wouldn't be the fuser because that would definitely repeat multiple times.

WOuld it be possible to fix this toner cartridge? Could it be a doctor wiper blade that is failing?

I'm thinking the sweeper blade that is opposite the wiper blade. I would empty the waste bin and examine the sweeper to make sure it is straight and flat. Disassembly instructions are in the reference section above under guides. Canon wx cartridge.
