Dot is due to damage to the drum or fuser roller .. inspect both to find which unit to replace. the spot should be easily found by rotating the units by hand... If this is a copy the dot will be on the scanner glass   good luck

Consistent dots down print


Try to print clean page ,
Print a cleaning page During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer and can cause print quality issues such as toner specks or spatter, smears, streaks, lines or repeating marks. Follow these steps to clean the printer's paper path.
  1. Load copier-grade paper (not bond, heavy, or rough paper).
  2. On the printer's control panel, touch the Menu button.
  3. Touch Configure Device .
  4. Touch Print Quality .
  5. Touch Process Cleaning Page .
A Cleaning message appears on the printer control panel display while the cleaning is taking place. The cleaning process takes a few minutes to complete. Do not turn the printer off until the cleaning process has finished. A page will be printed when the task is complete. Discard the page. You might need to repeat the cleaning process to thoroughly clean the printer. Print a few more pages to see if the problem is resolved.

To check if this is a hardware issue, please print a menu settings page. The purpose of this diagnostic is to check if this is a software issue or a hardware issue.



1. Press Menu to display Menus.
2. Press "down" until the "check" appears next to Reports.
3. Press "Check".
4. Press "down" until the "check" appears next to Menu Settings Page.
5. Press "check".
The message Printing Menus Settings appears on the display.
The printer returns to the Ready state after the menu settings page prints.


If the menu settings page printed without the dots, this would be a software issue. In that case, please call our Technical Support Hotline on (800) 539-6275.

Hi, I have HP LaserJet 1020 and few days ago three tiny black dots appeared on the left side of the printed pages, just by the border. The borders apper at regular intervals. I found somewhere that it...


dots printed are from the cartridge, you proved that with the change to the old one. If the fuser was faulty, it would repeat the dot 2.5 times down an 8.5 x 11 page
Replace the cartridge and please use HP , remanufactured cartridges fail prematurley and usually wind up costnig more in service and repair/exchanges.

Unwanted 'dots' on printout


There is a dot somewhere on the drum, remove the drum and toner cartridge from the machine, then remove toner from drum. Look at the shiny roll, you can turn it from the black gear on the side. Once you find the dot use a cue tip dipped into little bit of alcohol and clean it off.

Black dots on printed page from Brother 9440 color laser printer


The problem lies with the black toner cartridge. This is a common problem in these machines due to poor design by Brother. Best solution is to replace the offending color toner cartridge.
