Question about Brother MFC-8220 Fax
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
3.75" apart points to only one thing and that is your drum unit.

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
