HP Laserjet 5P - Printing Problems

My 5P has started to print a black smudge along the side of the paper.  I've tried shaking the toner cartridge and surface cleaning the inside.  There is a brush inside the printer but I can't find any information on where to use it.  Any ideas?

Take out your imaging drum and open the shutter and make sure there is no corresponding damage to the shny roller.  Also, after letting the fuser cool, take a look at the rollers inside for damage.
