Hi,

If the black dots were not present with the old cartridge, then one can only suspect the new cartridge at fault. This rarely happens but it do happen. Chances are that there is a defect on the drum inside the new cartridge. You can visually check for this imperfection by removing the cartridge and sliding the protective cover to partially expose the drum (not in direct sunlight as they are light sensitive). There is a white gear at the side that you can manually rotate ( a bit stiff) to check for the possible fault. you can approximate the possible location by aligning a printed paper with the series of dots against the drum to give you an idea where to concentrate on.

Should this be the case, it is possible for you to return the new cartridge for a replacement.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 3 dots along the left margin of paper, after replacing the drum

Open the MP tray and place a new sheet of A4 paper on it.

Press and Hold the Clear/Back button and also press and hold the Left Arrow. The display should change to 'Drum Cleaning'

Press the OK button and it should clean the drum and print a sheet with smudges where your dots used to be.

You may need to repeat the procedure a few times.

The printer prints with a smudged black line the length of the left margin of the page.


We recommend replacing the cartridge as a first step. If that does not correct the problem, we look for toner dust inside the printer. DO NOT VACUUM this dust as it is very fine and will go through your vac bag and create dust everywhere. Finally we look for finger prints and pieces of paper.

If the toner is able to be rubbed off the paper, it is a fuser issue. Replacement of the fuser will be needed.

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.
