Start a print cycle and turn the printer off part way through its print cycle. Open the printer take out the toner cartridge and see if the lines are on the roller in the cartridge. If they are then you know the problem is likely in the cartridge (most likely)or the scanner.
If all you see is the print job then the lines are being added on after the cartridge probably in the fuser probably.
Also check the distance between the lines and see if the distance fits any of the measured distances in the troubleshooting area of the User Manual.
This one is silly but check that the paper supply does not have three black lines on it.
