Evenly spaced black dot down page could be either the transfer roller, fuser or drum unit. If you measure the distance you will know which, but most common is the drum unit. If you have another drum try it, your problem will likely go away. If not measure the distance from the start of one dot to the start of the next and post that meaurement.

SOURCE: Canon LBP 1210 Laser Printer black mess down middle of page

the prob could be in the fusing unit, or the fuser rollers, chances are there is a sticky toner adhered onto its surface, (the red roller on the top is the pressure roller the bottom roller is the fuser roller.

this area could are so hot, so take precautionary measure when cleaning this rollers, this could be from other medium materials that recently usd and tends to stick on the surface of the roller.

kindly clean this one with dry cloth or cloth damped with oil, though its best to clean this while it is hot, but be careful

goodluck

The problem may be from either from the toner cartridge or the settings of the printer. change the toner first and see whether he problem still persist and also make sure that the settings of the printer on your system is ok, if the problem still persist after doing all this then it implies that you need to service your printer.

Xerox 7435 printing spot on paper


Spots on the page in a regular pattern are usually due to a problem on that colour drum or on the IBT black transfer belt.
more investigation needed.
good luck..

I always have a black line down the middle of the page when i scan. help


If there's a black line when scanning but not when printing, you need to clean the scan bed. Either the glass has something on it or check the paper path if you're using the ADF. A single ink spot either place will print a line down the whole length of your scan.

What can we do about dark toner spots that are appearing on the right side of documents we print? We have tried using a can of air spray to clean the inside of the printer, but to no avail.


I have a Brother HL 4040cn color laser printer and I had the same problem. On every page I printed there were these black dots that appeared down the right side of the page in regular intervals. I tried the automatic drum cleaner and that didn't work. I opened the printer from door, removed the black toner cartridge and looked at the drum. Sure enough there was a speck of black crusted toner stuck to the drum. I used a q-tip and lightly scrubbed at the spot to remove the toner then I used the gear on the left side of the drum to rotate it and check for any other smudges and there were none. Put the toner cartridge back in and it was good to go again...no black dots!!

Hope this helps someone because I couldn't find the solution myself when I searched.

The fuser film sleeve is more than likely torn. You can get just the sleeve and install it - or you can get the assembly. The p# is HM1-0237
