A number of things! First did you ever clean out the paper path? Run out and buy paper path cleaner and run it 10 times. Try printing again and see if it corrects the problem. If it still acts like that, then you would need to change out the toner (if supected of defects or if empty) or change out the led inside the printer which you would need a repair manual to disngage and replace it.
it is possible that this is a fuser prob, fuser works applying heat and pressure, if the roller, either the pressure roller or the fuser roller is defective this is most likely will happen too, you might want to check the number of copies or prints made
I was able to fix it by taking off the top of the printer. This involved taking off 4 screws on the top of the printer. I then had to disconnect the wires going to the control panel by unhooking them from the right side. I then located a thin rectangular box which I'm assuming houses the laser. I removed this with 4 more screws and turned it over. There was a little metal flap that I moved back and below was the mirror the lasers shoot on before going onto the toner.
In the same spot where I was having fading, I noticed a lot of toner on the mirror, so I cleaned it of, put it back together, and the fading was gone.
This was after I tried a new toner and maintenance kit.
I have a SCX-4100 Samsung, replaced the tonger cartridge, it was working fine for a few hundred sheets of printing, but after that, the left side of the page was printed very light, faded. If I run the "Clean Drum", it will print a litter better, but still faded. What can I do to correct this problem? Thank you TT
