Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer
Your Drum Cylinder has a scratch or clot of toner stuck to it. Every time it rotates along the page (usually 4 rotations per A4) it leaves a copy of the defect on the page. If you take the toner cartidge out of the drum unit, you will be able to turn the drum cylinder until you find the fault. Either replace the drum unit or CAREFULLY clean it with alcohol on a cotton ball (meths or iso propoyl will do) in the case of a toner clot. If the fault recurs quickly after cleaning, then you have a damaged drum and it should be replaced.
Best of luck.

fuser is usually replaced as a assembly, it's the hot bit a back.
Can only be two things the drum or the fuser as our headstrong friend has correctly explained.
More than likely it is the drum they last about 4 toners i think.
Learn the art of getting a page to stop halfway threw printing, you want to stop the page after the drum has put a image on the paper but before paper has gone threw the fuser (hotbit).
Once you have mastered the position correctly by stopping the printing by opening the door and removing drum/toner cartridge, to reveal the paper that is printed but can be rubbed off, we will know if marks are coming from the drum (you will see them) or from the fuser, if print is fine

the fusing unit needs to be serviced, more than likely there is toner on the fusing heat roller, also look at the drum unit and see if there is any bad spots.you may have to replace the unit as a whole that is the toner,drum,developer unit.
