Question about Lexmark Optra SC 1275 Laser Printer

Two black dots on right side of page

I get a pair of black ink dots spaced vertically about 2-3 inches only on the right side of a printed sheet. There are usually about 3 sets of these on a page, I have changed the PC, all the ink cartridges and now am frustrated to see this after all the money spent. Any ideas would be really helpful as I was planning to keep this printer for my work

Yes john A. I have dots and now I also have smudges. I can email you a copy if you email me @ bpmathew1@yahoo.com with your address. I think you are right in it being the fuser assembly, I checked the inside of it after opening the back the orange colored drum seems to have a few streaks on the right side of it, which I am thinking mirrors the points and sludges...let me know what you think...
MORE importantly - I want to thank you for your kindness and time !

Are the marks in the same exact spot on each page? If not and you have changed the toner cartridge then most likely the fuser assembly needs to be replaced. This is a job I recommend for a professional.
Good Luck

    Can you fax or email me a copy with the dots? Are they smudges? Are the dots identical on each page?

Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

Little dots on right side of margin (Brother HL-5040)


I would have guessed the trouble shooting steps you first performed. It could still be a bad imaging drum. Or a fuser. Not sure if this model has a replaceable fuser or not.

Tiny dots about 1 inch apart down the side of page


Again, this was actually HP Laserjet 3800. Problem solved by chatting with HP, and them having me go into a diagnosis mode that disabled cartridge check. Then, I removed the cyan cartridge, the dots went away. They then had me put the black into the cyan slot, and not dots appeared. I had backup toner on hand, swapped in a new cyan and magenta, and all was good. HP agreed to replace the cartridges.

replace the toner cartridge, you wont have anything "dripping" out of it as the toner inside is a powder. if it still appears replace the fuser.

Vertical dots on print output


1 1/2 inches apart would correspond to the diameter of the primary charge roller. You have one chrarge roller inside each toner cartridge so you need to determine which color the dots are and then replace that cartridge.

Epson 9800 Prints black dotted vertical line


This is a workaround - I too need a definitive answer. Symptom: black dotted vertical line 1/2 to 3/4" from leftmost image edge. I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh
