Replace fuser assembly/have fuser unit replaced if you have tried fresh quality paper from a unopened ream. The first versions of these had the fuser and exit assembly modified by brother to help eliminate excessive curl last 9 digits of serial number are higher than D5J760210 have already been modified, if lower ie D4Z99999 need to get mod. fitted.

If the smudges are gradually fading then it's likely just excess toner hitting the fuse drum. Try a few cleaning cycles/test prints and see if that makes it go away. If not, see if you can get a replacement toner.

Sounds like a paper jam. There's a flap at the back of the printer-once open you should be able to see if the paper is stuck there. (Exactly the problem I had yesterday-I didn't spot it at first and it nearly drove me mad! :)

Remove the Toner Drum unit and look for a little blue tab. Slide it
back and forth a couple of times to clean a corona wire and see if that
helps.If the problem still exists, you may try this 2nd option.
> the front door. There is something wrong with the front door, or the mechanisms that signal that it is closed. Closing the front door (the one that you open to pull out the toner and drum) all the way to where it snaps into place then the paper light flashes red. However closing the front door to the point where the "ready" light comes on (don't snap the door into place, just close it and let it rest in place without snapping it closed) and the printer prints fine, pulls paper from the tray and prints like it should.
So give it a try, don't snap the front door all the way closed to where it snaps closed, just close the door to where it's resting closed to where the ready light comes on and see if this helps you.
