Brother printer problem- "noise" on printed paper

Recently I noticed three grayish dots on the paper that came from the brother mfc-8220 printer. Thinking it was maybe dust or something I used one of the air cans you buy to clean computer parts and sprayed it into the print. The printer was dirty, dust and all, but that didn't fix the problem. Actually it made it worse. Now not only do I have three dots down the left margin, I have "fuzz or noise" all over the paper making the paper look a bit grayish. How can I fix this

    I tried this and it didn't work, it even got worse. So I changed the toner. This fixed the dust but the three dots are still there and even more dark than before. The dots are all exactly 3.75 inches apart, don't know what that means but I thought it was interesting. Can anyone help?

When you open the front door to replace your toner. The part that you put your toner in is the drum unit. pull that out. Remove the toner cart. blow the unit out.
( DO THIS OUT SIDE, TONER WILL BLOW OUT OF THE DRUM UNIT )
On the top of the drum unit there is a blue or green slide lever move the lever back & fourth 15-20 times.
re blow out the machine with drum unit out.
Reinstall the drum,
make 5 copies ( 1st feow will be bad hope thay will get better )
If not need to determan if the drum is bad or the fuser asm is cuasing the problum.
( part that melts the toner on to the paper )
Need to do a 1/2 print test.
1. make a copie or do a report
2. when the paper is 1/2 way thrugh the machine but not in to the fuser open front cover.
( may need to tray a coupel of times to do ot right )
3 look at the paper see if marks are on the paper.
( If not then the fuser is bad. if the marks are there the drum is bad )

Hope this help's

Brother MFC-8220 leaving ink on printed docs. How do you clean that?


That's usually a bad toner cartridge that dumps too much toner per print. Buying a new toner cartridge should fix it. You may need to wipe up a little spilled toner inside. Just use a dry cloth, and be very careful around the little black levers that stick up to detect the paper.

There are other manufacturers who sell toner for these, but some of them have toner inside that's so hard to stir, it breaks the gear in the machine. That makes a very expensive repair for the little money you save on generic toner.
