SOURCE: Why is my BROTHER HL-2170W Printing splotches on one side of the page?

The chances are that the issue is a faulty drum unit. Remove the drum from the machine and check for dirty marks on the drum. You do not need to do anything like reinstalling software and you cannot clean nozzles. It is a laser printer and doesn't have nozzles. Depending on how much your machine cost and whether you can source a drum at a reasonable price it may be more cost effective to buy a new machine..
