In the older days before color copiers one could usually get rid of specks and other induced graphic noise by setting the contast/saturation real low so all you'd get were weak lines on a dead white background, then copy that output with normal contrast to get sharp images on a background that was still clean.

You can continue to play with the contrast controls until you get most of the background garbage out of the copies, which can then serve as masters for new contrasty clean copies.
