    I am having an issue when printing. Every page has 8 uniform dots on the right hand side of the paper. I have tried cleaning the cartridge and removing any dust from the machine.
    If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

    If the "dots" are of exact spacing then it will be caused by a fault in the drum or the transfer system, a dot being made on each rotation.

    There is usually nothing you can do about it if it is the drum, apart from replacing it. That model does have an "all in one" drum and color toner assembly I believe, but I am unsure if the drum will have the problem or the transfer belt in your case.

    What color are the dots? I've heard, at least, that with most color lasers, a small yellow watermark is printed in the corner of the page with a serial number (to help find counterfeiters).
