Blotches of toner on edge of paper PLUS faint copies
First - After the copier has been turned on for a short period of time
blotches of toner appear on the full length of the sheet of paper. I have
changed the cartridge and this does not correct the problem.
Second - Regardless as to when I begin making copies, they are
becoming extremely faint even when I make the setting at the darkest
I would like to have a technician come to my home in Dublin, Calif. OR take the copier to a repair shop if need be. Be advise who I should

That sounds like classic wear and tear issues. All those rollers and gears have very close tolerances and any variation out of the rang and the paper grabing and jamming starts. And that could be cause of the toner leaking. You must have a lot of miles on that ol girl and you got your moneys worth out of her. They dont make them like that anymore and I dont think you could find the parts even though that was back when they supplied parts. I asked an engineer once "couldn't they make that one gear out of metal like the rest of them?" He replied "well sure, but there wouldn't be any money in that..." You beat the system on that one. Time to start your research on a replacement I'm afraid.
Do you have a shop vac with a hose on it? Turn the copier OFF and UNPLUG it from the WALL and use the vac to do all the lose toner & use a brush to get into the cracks and hard to reach areas. The blotches are most likely coming from the paper path, make sure you clean the whole paper path and run some blanks pages in the copier to clear up any left over... Good Luck
1 - take out all consumables 2 - use canned air to clean interior (do it outdoors) 3 - spray toner cartridges to remove stray toner (keep them connected to the drums, do not separate) 4 - make sure toner carts are properly installed and locked down
