LJ4-Light Print on left side

Starting at 1 3/4" in from the left side of the page the print gets lighter for about 1/2 " and then begins to darken ( from right to left ) but does not reach normal density. I have swapped with a known good printing machine, Hi-Voltage Assembly, DC Controller and transfer roller. No effect on each swap, whats next?

Take the cover off the scanner assembly and very carefully clean all the mirrors and lenses you can see. Don't use any liquids or anything abrasive on them. You didn't mention if you had tried a new toner cartridge. I had a similar problem at an attorney's office last week. Looked like a new HP OEM cartridge in the printer. Popped in one of our brand and the secretary said, "I want one of those!"
The gray text became black, the gray bars became solid black. Even I was impressed.
