My printer consistently prints black dots/blots on the left-side of the page (2-3 per page). What can I do to get rid of these dots?


Make sure the printer cartridge is not punctured or damaged. You can check this by taking out the cartride and look for ink spilled on it.

Prints thick black lines


Hello, Andrea.

Sounds like either your printer needs a new fuser assembly (If the teflon roller gets scratched or starts to disintegrate you will get lines or black marks on the page) or you need a replacement toner.

Hope this helps.

Brother printer prints solid black on one side


This is caused by a faulty drum/charging circuit or laser unit. The drum is positively charged with static electricity and a laser draws the image onto the drum (changing the charge to negative) the toner is positively charged to it will adhere to the negatively charged image which is now on the drum. your problem is that the drum is either not being positively charged or the laser is charging the whole drum. There is a corona wire on the drum, remove the drum, sweep the corona wire (there will be a tab that moves left and right) and try it again. next step is to replace the drum. if you dont have a spare drum or one from another printer then it may be more cost effective to buy another printer as drums are quite expensive and it may not even be the problem.

Printing black shaded on complete page


I assume you mean the pages are coming out dirty or gary versus white and black text.
change the drum/cartridge, if you get the same results it could be the hi-voltage power supply. most common is the drum.
