Thanks for responding. For clarification: is the leader you mention part of the cartridge or the printer itself? From what you wrote, I'm thinking it's not part of the cartridge, but underneath. (I don't have my printer in front of me at the moment.)
What causes such cracks? I'm pretty sure I didn't abuse anything, and I got through the "starter" cartridge just fine.
Also, is there anywhere one can go to find a good set of diagrams/descriptions of what a particular printer does during a print cycle? I suppose it's too much to hope for, but I'd *really* like to see an animation, ideally.

Hi, If faded prints happen
even after replacing the toner cartridge or if your current cartridge has
enough toner, it is most likely be
due to dust at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printer. I have worked/ serviced similar Laserjet Printer with same issue. Actually,
faded prints are due the the dust/
toner dust accumulated on the optics (mirrors and lenses) inside the
printer, which refect the laser beams to form prints. Hence the image is
not produced properly. This needs professional hands for servicing and cleaning of the optics inside the printer. Rest
assure that the printer requires ONLY CLEANING OF THE MIRRORS, which
are inside the printer. So, it is advised that you get the printer
serviced by any printer repair/ service professional.
(Please note that the mirrors, lenses and scanner assembly inside such
printers is extremely complex and can get damaged very easily
especially the mirrors).
Hope it would help. If you need any clarification, let me know Good Luck! CreativeTECH
Toner Blinking yellow LED indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Buy a new toner cartridge or refill the cartridge. Refilling the TN cartridges is quite simple and you can do it yourself. It is a very simple process. Please refer to this video.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Good Luck! Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
This problem is often caused by spilled toner. Open the printer, carefully remove the cartridge, and give it a few bursts of compressed air. Often running several pages or type through will also fix this. If it persists, replace the toner cartridge.
Hope this initial info/idea helps. Let me know for any clarifications.
I have to respond to this posting with a solution because I cannot track responses if I mark this as a "Clarification".
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge? Please consider the following: If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem.Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges. They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead. If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges Don
try to install the cartridge again and see if it can print.or u can reinstall the printer drivers. if the problem still persists then visit below mentioned link for a free diagnosis. http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz
There might be a problem with the network connection. Is the cable connected to the back of the printer?
The printer could have lost the connection.
If the printer is able to print a configuration page and if the display responds to comands from the buttons in the display panel there is a very good chance the network connection was lost.
Yo mentioned "paper jam" is the printer identifying a paper jam?
Here is the link to the pdf manual for the printer. They show some light sequences and mention something about the old toner cartridge may need to be emptied/replaced.
I'll let you know if I think of anything else.
