Question about Brother HL-5370DWT Laser Printer
About every 3.5" on the left side there are faded spots. I have replaced the toner and the drum, but to no avail. Not sure how to fix this. I am not a printer tech, so taking something apart to clean it will be complicated for me.
If you have replaced the toner and the issue remains it is likely residual toner left inside the printer from a previously leaking cartridge. It is most likely that the toner is on an internal roller or the printers drum unit.
Thankfully the toner is likely to work its way out overtime if you don't fancy cleaning inside your printer. You could always replace the drum unit, but this is far from guaranteed to be the cause and could be an expensive bit of troubleshooting.

SOURCE: faded print quality
If your toner saver is off and still getting faded quality means you mirrors and Scanning Lamp are not reflecting images properly.
Now if you are handy on printer then you need to take off glass
from printer then you need to clean ADF units (mirrors,lense lamp etc)
but if you unaware of printer repairing, i highly recommend to call a printer tech who ca fix back it quick.
sometime printer acts weired due to this problem while printer or make copies.
and rate all answers.

Does this printer have transfer and pickup rollers? If so many times these rollers go bad and can cause that problem. If it uses powdered toner, check for toner buildup near the ends of these rollers as well.

Dots along the left side mean only 1 thing - time to replace the drum. I know, I've done it twice on Brother machines. You can find drums online for $130.
Forget Brother Customer Dis-Service - THEY ARE USELESS, unless of course, you consider reading from a script helpful.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a brother
the printer doesnt accept the recycled toner and due to recycling or refilling the toner it might show invalid toner if you can print then there is no problem ignore it as long as print goes if the error code is poping up i think you will have to replace the toner
