Epson EPL8000 Edge of paper Blotches

I have a strage problem with 2 different cartridges for this laser printer. I get blotchy black streaks on one edge of the paper with most prints. The streaks are within 1/4 inch of the edge of the paper, i.e, outside the printable area of the printer. I masked the laser on that side of the cartridge preventing the laser beam from striking the drum on that side, yet the blotches continue. The cartridges have new wipers and drums. I believe the wiper is working, yet toner is migrating to the drum on this one edge. Anyone have an idea why this is happening?
