no exact idea which exact part - However had a similar problem in my laser printer. I used a can of compressed air with the printer outside the building and sprayed the air on everything that the paper would come into contact with inside the printer with the toner cartridge removed out of the printer. And problem was resolved. I suspected the paper rollers . you can get a can of compressed air from electronic spare part type stores like Jaycar
First of all..do u refill ur toner?? if so i advise u to get a new original one and refill that..do refill the same toner for more than 3 times. Secondly, How old is ur printer and how many pages do u print weekly..or u be better off buying a new one...Finally, I think the problem is with the heated rubber rollers that are not melting the charged toner particles causing it to smudge. try cleaning the printer by removing any dust...i prefer that u try it out with a new toner and see if u have a same problem.
Problem is either the cartridge or the fuser. Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1) Print something. When the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover. Pull out the toner, look down at the paper. If it has the smudge replace the toner. If no smudge, replace the fuser.
the corona wire/roller is the main charging unit for the static drum and the paper, if that is dirtied by toner u will get smudges all over your pages even with a new catridge. if ur familiar with the corona unit try cleaning it but be careful not to damage it. other wise take your printer to the technician.
Hmm... This sounds like it is a toner problem. If your roller is getting too much toner then it just globs it onto the paper even though the drum is not asking for it. Are you using a new toner cartridge or a re-filled one? Is it from Brother or a 3rd party? I suggest you remove the toner cartridge and check inside the printer. Clean any spilled toner. Check the toner cartridge for leaks .. give it a good shake and see if it is leaking. If you have another toner cartridge, you can replace it to test. You may need to pint a few pages to see a change. Another test could be to print a few (2-5) "BLANK" pages. The printer should not be depositing any toner. If no smudge or the smudge stays the same, then the toner cartridge is the likely problem. If the smudge is there, but gets smaller, then clean your printer.
Never touch or clean drum surface, they are higly sensitive.
If as I suspect what you are seeing is toner not being cleaned from drum properly, these drum units have a rubber blade that wipes the drum as it passes it, some non oki toners are very abrasive and wear these blades out, sometimes the rubber is effected by heat or age, some after market drums use inferior cleaning blades in drum construction.
Are your 4 drums and toners the OKI genuine ones or did you purchase aftermarket/refurb/recycled?
Wiping the drum has probally scratched it's photosensitive surface.
