    Copies very light - I have a new toner and a fairly new drum. I have tried to change resolution as described in manual and copies are still too light to read easily - how do I fix this?

    Have tried all these suggestions including change toner and drum and print is still VERY light! also, have a completel blank strip down the right side of the copy and/or fax. Is there some sort of kit I can buy to possibly change out certain parts (rollers, etc) that could be causing this?

    Same issue - new toner and prints fine right down the middle but both the right and left side are super light.

Fax machine print light


When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.

Normally the problem is low toner.

When it prints it comes out very faint


remove the toner . look in on the left hand side where it goes you should see to half loops springs. these might be dirty or bent . this is what gives the toner the charge, if you want to clean them go ahead, if you want to bend them turn the power off first those are high voltage pins.

Light fax


This could be a couple of different things. The first is that you are running out of ink or toner. Or you could have your toner save turned on. You can conserve toner using this feature.
When you set Toner Save to On, print
appears lighter. The default setting is Off.
1 Press Menu/Set, 1, 6, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select On (or Off).
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.

Print is light


If you have replaced your toner and your print quality is still light, your next step is to replace your drum unit, if it has not been replaced lately. This particular drum unit has a life of roughly 12,000 pages.

Light copies


You may have your machine set to print in "toner save" mode. Check your machine settings by printing a list. Also, some generic toner cartridges have too much polymer in the mix and will print light copies. If you change back to OEM toner, you may have to change the drum too, as the extra polymer stays in the drum unit and weakens the mix.
