Toner spots

I have a TI microLaser 35 that keeps getting excess toner on the pinted sheets. I blow out the inside and it works ok for a few pages, but then the problem is back. I can see toner inside the printer. Where is it coming from and can it be fixed?
Thanks for the help.

It could be leaking out of the toner hopper. Most likely cause is in the wiping section of the drum unit. There is a sweeper blade which collects the toner into a waste hopper. This is a thin plastic blade that tends to kink up and allow toner to fall out of the waste hopper. You'll have to replace the drum unit in all probability.

Thanks for the information.
Any idea where one would look for this type repair or parts on a discontinued TI Printer?
Repair is probably not cost effective. Correct?

Part of our business is toner cartridge and drum remanufacture. We do those for $59 with an exchange.
