If the cartridge is not bad then it is probably the teflon film on the fuser heating element. Will require either a new fuser or possibly just a replacement of the fuser film (it depends on condition of other rollers and bushings in fuser)
Sounds like you might have a transfer roller that needs to be replaced. The transfer roller is under where the cartridge seats and transfers the toner to the paper...If toner is not sticking to the transfer roller it will show what you are seeing....Transfer rollers come in Maintenance kits. If the transfer roller is not the issue....its most definitely the fuser not fusing the toner completely, due to improper heating, to the page giving a lightness.
Are you getting toner on the paper? To find out, print a test page. When you judge that the paper is under the toner cartridge, turn the printer off and look at the toner cartridge. Is your document displayed on the toner drum in toner? Is there toner on the paper?
No No Replace the toner cartridge. If that doesn't work you have more serious problems.
Yes No Replace the transfer roller.
Yes Yes If toner is smeared on the paper, replace the fuser.
Ghosting is the result of a worn fuser assembly. Try to print a half page by printing a document and then try to open the top while the paper is going under the toner cartridge. You have to listen to the paper moving through the paper path.You will see that the paper has print on it but not the hole document. This will tell you if the toner cartridge is bad or the fuser assembly.
