    I have this problem, I'm getting ink spots on the side of the paper it's on all copies. Does this mean I need a new image drum? If so where do I buy one? Can I buy one at a store near me or do I need to order it from Dell? Do I sound pathic well I'm going crazy with this problem. Thank you for any help.

Toner cartridge? So this is a laser printer? In that case I suspect it is not new? This sounds like old age on the main image drum, that will probably give the exact same mark on each page, correct?

My Brother MFC-7420 Printer always prints black lines and splotches down the left side of my paper. This happens whether I'm scanning or printing from my PC. When I looked at my drum, it appears a


If you are seeing vertical streaks/black lines your primary corona wire is dirty and or the fax scanner may be dirty.
1)To clean the corona wire you take the drum unit and toner cartridge and place it on disposable paper to avoid spilling.
2) Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by sliding the blue tab from right to left several times.
3) Return the blue tab and snap it into the home position.
4) Reinstall the drum unit and toner cartridge.
5) Close the front cover.
Caution: if you do not return the blue tab to the home position it may repeat the black lines.

My HP Color LaserJet 2600n is printing with small black dots on the left side of the paper. The toner and ink was recently replaced. Is there a plausible reason for this? Thank you!


Could be toner build-up on the fuser sleeve. Pull out the fuser and check the rollers for spots.
Try running cleaning pages before replacing fuser.

Black ink streak on left side of paper on hp 1012, just put in new toner


Run a half test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1).
Send a print job to printer. When the paper gets 3/4 of the way into the printer, open the cover. Pull out the toner cartridge, look down at the sheet inside the printer. Does it have the streak on the left side? If yes...your toner cartridge is bad. If no...replace the fuser.

Poor print quality


The "ghost" image is "burned" onto the drum.

A laser printer is supposed to charge specific "dots" on the drum, and the toner-ink is supposed to stick only to those "dots", the paper is pressed against the drum, and then the "fuser" uses heat to "melt" the toner-ink onto the paper, to produce the printed page.

You need to replace the drum.

Splotching and spotting ink


The roller cleaning will require you to remove cover to clean the full roller with alcohol to remove ink build up. Have you tried to just run/feed a blank piece of paper through to see if you have roller ink roll off?

This also sounds like a bad cartridge with clogged jets...

Prints roller smear marks


Laser printers do not use Ink. The problem is most likely a defect on the drum, which in this model printer, is part of the toner cartridge. Replace the black toner cartridge with a known good one and test.

HP Laserjet 1320 - Gray bars printing on sides of paper with dark dots


It sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Try replacing it. If that does not cure the problem, then the fuser assembly needs to be replaced, in which case it is probably cheaper to buy a new one.

Good luck
