This is almost always going to be the toner cartridge. Swap it out if you have a spare. If not even if you have an empty one, just shake it a bit and put it back in to see if the blank lines go away. It is at least 90% chance or better that the problem is in the cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Clean the Corona Wire carefully to remove any residue. As the charge on the wire is effectivley masked it cannot deposit any toner to the page and will result in a consistent white vertical stripe.
