It sounds like you have damage to either your transferr roller of the drum, you could try running a laser printer cleaning sheet through it a couple of times but usually the only way to sort the problem is to replace the part that is causing the problem.
Take the drum out and turn it by hand using cog at the side to turn it to see if its marked.

Ink spots left side page brother laser printer


If you are using a generic toner, replace it with cartridge from Brother. Many of these are caused by using a refilled cartridge or a generic cartridge. Use a cleaning sheet and run it though a couple of times, if this does not clear it up you need a new cartridge.

When printing or copying I m getting thick black


First try running maintenance to clean print head on your machine.
If that does not solve your problem replace the ink carts OR Toner cart.

Specks on print out of Mono Laser Printer HL2040


If its spots this could have been from the cartridge or the fusser unit...
Do a half print test...send a print page to your printer listen to the printer print as soon as you think the printer has printed some little bit switch off the printer...take the cartridge and view the printed portion can you see the spots..if not.....than its your fusser unit thats marking the paper....remove the half printed paper slowly.....not to tear it......remover the fusser unit(hot unit)........at the back of the printer....towards the top....on the unit it self you will see a Teflon paper ....move the gear on the far end of the fusser unit itself and view if there is any spots....try cleaning this spots slowly as not to damage the Teflon or mark the Teflon.....
