Heated up Printer
If the printer gets heated up, it might be possible that the small plastic cap positioned on the toner cartridge has broken off. You might have to replace the toner cart for the proper functioning of the printer.
Damaged Printer Drums
If your document is all filled with small dots or black lines, then it might be possible that the drum of the printer is damaged. In that case the toner of the printer is fine and you need to replace the drum to resolve the issue.
