Brother laser printer problem

By briancrangle ·
I have a Brother HL-1030 laser printer & I use W XP. it's started printing with a large black smudge down the left hand side of the paper. cleaning drum has no effect neither does fitting new cartridge.
Anybody got any good ideas?

It sounds like an imaging problem

There are several possible causes for this, all of which are addressed in the User Guide (

- Make sure the corona cleaner is in its stowed position.

- This area of the drum is extremely worn and will not hold the requred electrical charge. Brother used a separate drum module and toner cartridge with the 1030. Have you changed the drum module?

- The laser is not able to write to this area of the drum. Check for an obstruction in the laser path at the left edge of the drum.
