I have a brother laser printer all in one 8660. I just replaced the toner with a brother cartridge and the print outs have little black dots regularly spaced about an inch and a half apart running verticly down the extremem right edge of the paper and about 2/3 across from the left to the right side. i tried re-shaking the toner and i slid the wire cleaner back and forth but they remain. What to do?
You need to clean your drum unit:

The drum is the component that actually transfers the image onto the page.
Laser Printing 101. When a page is printed to a laser printer it is transferred to the laser printer via the network or usb cable using the driver installed on the PC. This information is then converted back into a format the printer can print through the Format board and the internal firmware of the Printer. This information is then transferred to the drum via a laser beam to a photo-sensitive film on the surface of the drum which is charged and allows the toner from the toner cartridge to stick to the drum which is then transferred to the page and the page is then fed through a Fuser (A heated roller which operates somewhere around the 300-500 degree cetigrade point) to fuse/melt the toner onto the paper which is then fed out to the paper cachment area you collect your printout from.
This is caused mainly by leaving the Corona Wire sliders anywhere other than where the arrows on the slider meets the arrows on the Drum Units. This leaves solid lines of colour down the length of the page (one per colour with the slider in the wrong place) if it is leaving more than the single line on the page it is probably leaking cartridges.
These particular cartridges are known for their ability to leak badly (OEM and Remanufactured cartridges do it). The only option for a leaking cartridge is to replace it and clean out the machine with a lint free cloth preferably a 'Toner Grabber' cloth. If you nee one of the toner grabber cloths then talk to your local cartridge refilling place for one. If they refil toner cartridges there then they probably have them or can suggest a different option.
i have brohter dcp7030 laser printer .earlier toner is empty si i refiiled the toner but toner giving me not printout.printer is display the message of toner end so plase me suggest the reset of this ptinter
First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.
From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.
There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).
Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.
