If the dots are all over the paper you may need to replace your toner cartridge. If the dots are smearing, you may need to check your fuser assembly (have it checked by a professional).

I have a Brother MFC 8460N that prints three black dots down the right side of each page when going through the printer. I have tried cleaning and it does not work. The black dots show up on copies as...


Measure the distance between the dots and that will give you the answer to which roller is causing the problem I believe the Drum is the only roller large enough to just cause three dots.

Unwanted 'dots' on printout


There is a dot somewhere on the drum, remove the drum and toner cartridge from the machine, then remove toner from drum. Look at the shiny roll, you can turn it from the black gear on the side. Once you find the dot use a cue tip dipped into little bit of alcohol and clean it off.

Documents are printing fine but the right hand edge has black dots on it like 6-8 sapced out along the right hand edge.


check your print cartridge and your fusing element. you will need to dead cycle the printer to check the cartridge (print a document, when it is half way through turn off the printer, check the toner cartridge for your dots.) are you able to see your fusing element by opening the rear door? check the edges for dots on the fusing element. also there is a transfer roller or belt in your printer, that may also be dirty.

Greenish tint to black type


This is a dot matrix printer. The way they work is there is a print head that has a heap of little needles with flat tops on them, and they push out at high speed against the ink ribbon, and the ink ribbon is pushed against the paper to make a dot. Then the pin is retracted, spring loaded.
Pretty amazing that it can work that fast, eh!
So the only thing that can influence the ink colour on your paper is the ribbon.
Are you using original Lexmark ribbons? If so, my recommendation would be to take a sample print to where you got the printer from and get them to demonstrate the print quality of one of these printers, then compare it with yours.
Dot Matrix printers will not produce print as black or as high a quality as a laser printer, for example.
Perhaps the ink ribbons you are using have a less than top quality ink in them, and there is a bit of "bleeding" going on - it can only be the ribbon.
Another thing you can experiment with to get the best print quality is the print head gap - there will (should) be an adjustment, and getting that right will make a difference to print quality.
Hope this helps you.

11 blue dots print out down the left hand side of documents


It's probably the toner cartridge again. See if you can spot defects at the cyan drum unit that matches the marks on your printout.

Deskjet F380 is normaly printing but it will print blank


If the printer is printing blank pages, make sure you are using the correct printer driver and make sure the paper size is correctly selected in the driver. If the printer is printing black only, the Ink option in the printer driver may be set to Black instead of Color or a setting in the software may be set to print black only. Also, the print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Performing up to 6 cleaning cycles is not uncommon if the print heads are severly clogged.

Poor ink quality


The description is a little vague Little dots where? Front or back of the paper? And what are you printing- the type of document Text or image- Where did the original come from? Much more detail if you please
