Brother HL 2070N Drum Unit changed but printing with dots on the left hand side

I have changed the drum unit and toner in the printer and the drum unit light remains on and pages are being printed with dots on the left hand side. Is this the drum unit that is faulty, or is there something I can do to remedy it?

    I have same printer. Put in new toner. Have 8 dots that are not in a straight line, but are on right-hand side going down the page. If I replace the drum and this continues what is it that I would have to clean? Really need this printer as it is the last that works with my CR software that I cannot replace at the moment. Please, any help would be great. the dots are similar to this: .

Hi yvonnetyndal,
1\ if the dots is repeated in equally length vertically, that means the problem is from drum.
2\ if it scuttered dots that means the printer dirty by toner , try to clean it .
Hope this helpful for you,
thanks

If toner leaked into the machine and got on the fuser that could cause this, but the dots would go away after a few prints. Try another drum unit.

When I print with my brother hl-2070n...the print out is very very faint. i have changed the toner and drum...any suggestions?


if you printing is just faint, need to replace toner, but if your printing is faint and blurry, need to add grease to the fuser film roller, need advanced skills for that, disassemble the fuser unit take out the fuser film and put some special high temp grease on the heating element, assembly all back and install, the other way is replacing the fuser unit

Black marks on copies


This printer also has a drum unit. If the marks are appearing at regular intervals down the page (2-3 inches apart) it is almost certainly the drum unit at fault. The drum unit can easily and cheaply replaced.

Printed sheets come out with blackish/greyish lines on the right side


Use follow these cleaning steps for your printer:

1. Open the front cover of the printer and remove the drum/toner unit.
2. Gently wipe the scanner window with a soft dry cloth. The scanner
window is located on the roof of the inside of the printer.
3. On the top of the drum unit, locate the blue tab on the left side.
Slide it back and forth across the drum about 30 times.
4. Remove the toner cartridge (TN430 or TN460) from the drum unit
(DR400). To remove the toner from the drum: hold down the blue lever on the right side of the drum (DR400) and lift the toner (TN430 or TN460) off of the drum unit.
5. Inside the drum unit (DR400) there is a green roller. Wipe the green
drum roller with a dry tissue (i.e. Kleenex). You may turn this roller
by moving the gears on the far left side.
6. If the pages area gray pages or have gray vertical lines, install a
brand new toner cartridge. If pages have dots, spots, smudges or
horizontal lines, install a brand new drum unit.
OR
If you are still experiencing gray pages or gray vertical lines,
please install a brand new toner cartridge (TN430 or TN460).

Can smears when priting be fixed


Have you tried cleaning the corona wire on the drum unit (the blue slider bit)?

Replace the drum unit (assuming you have already replaced the toner cart?)

To check the remaining drum life press the go button 3 times. A report should print out with the info on. Even though you may have some remaining life, the drum can fail early.

If the dots/marks are repeating about 3 times down the page it is almost certainly the drum unit that has the problem.

Toner light doesnt go away in our printer and the printer doesnt print. We changed the cartridge please help us


The HL-2070N gets jammed in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear (I have 120 in the field so I know it works!):

With paper loaded, new toner in,

  1. Open front door
  2. Turn off printer
  3. While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
  4. When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
  5. Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
  6. Press the GO button 5 times
  7. Paper light will be blinking
  8. At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

Check and make sure that the blue slider tab on the drum unit is parked on the right-hand side (arrow-to-arrow).
