Black specks

Thanks in part to this forum, I have managed to get my 26-year-old Laserjet IIIP up and running. Mostly this was a maintenance kit, a $21 lower-paper tray from eBay, and a remanufactured cartridge. I'm not going to press this matter much since remanufactured cartridges are getting really hard to come by and the OEM cartridges are simply dead on the shelf.

At any rate, the printer does work. The quality is not quite up to the level I expected, but it's better than my primary (low-cost) Brother HL-2140. The only real issue I have is that the page is covered with tiny black specks. They do not appear in a pattern of any sort, but they are there. I realize that there simply may be nothing that can be done about it. If I printed documents on really fancy, off-white paper, I could pass it off as a luxury feature rather than a problem.

Does anybody have any ideas about what might be causing this?

Thanks much!


Without actually seeing it, I would hazard a guess that the cartridge is leaking. Random spots would not be generated by the printer and I would have to blame the remanufactured cartridge.
