This could cause by a overtoned developing problem, could be because you might have changed a toner lately? or install a generic one, if you do it may not be compatible and cause problem on your unit.

if yes, clean the affected developing unit, with a vacuum all scattered toner all over, and install the right toner.

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.

Lines on copy/scan/fax


You have something on your "scanner glass", the narrow piece of glass that the scanner "looks" through during adf use. Get some window cleaner or rubbing alcohol and clean it with a damp cloth. Often, it's correction fluid (Liquid Paper). A little dot is all it takes because the paper is traveling across the dot, effectively drawing a line down the length of the page.

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.

Dots appear on printed pages.


dot is due to damage to the drum or fuser roller .. inspect both to find which unit to replace. the spot should be easily found by rotating the units by hand... If this is a copy the dot will be on the scanner glass   good luck

Black spots on my documents Brother HL-1440


Stray dots (on a vertical imaginary line on the page) may not require an expensive drum replacement. In my situation, I simply followed these steps:
(1) Open up the printer, remove the toner-cartridge/drum assembly, and remove the toner cartridge from the drum.
(2) For purposes of reference, place (and center) a sample page of the "offending" output in the bottom of the drum housing, lining up the dots so that the page is turned the way it would have fed through the printer, placing the page generally in front of the shiny green roller surface. Loo, for where any matching black dot or other thing might be sitting on that surface.
(3) Gently roll the green surface's roller with its outside end pegs (without touching the green surface) if and until such a matching dot (or dots) can be found. (Multiple dots might appear along other imaginary verticals on the page, which is to say, additional vertical striping is occurring because there are more instances of "items/dots/garbage" arrayed across the roller on the horizontal, to produce repeat images down the page as the page feeds through the printer.)
(4) Take a Q-tip and very, very, very gently "polish" away the dot(s) you found on the green roller. (I ended up just dabbing the dot I found--which had consistently left a trail of three dots down my pages, in different locations because of the distance the roller traveled relative to the page size--using the absolute least amount moisture to remove it.)
(5) Clean the drum's corona wire by moving the blue plastic slider back and forth, and leave the slider at the far left point.
(6) Reassemble the toner cartridge and the drum and place the assembly back in the printer.

(7) Test.
Worked great for me. Done in around five minutes. No cost, except for the negligible cost of a Q-tip. No time waiting for a new drum to show up, etc.
