I am getting deterioration of color on the left side when I print. This is most notable with Cyan in the upper left quadrant edge (one inch from edge of paper, but I can see in black areas (lower left quadrant) that there is fading as well. Given what I am describing I am assuming that toner is not the problem...Any ideas?
I have same issue and had a service tech to take a look at my machine. I was told that the OPC Belt was bad and should have it replaced. Not a great answer considering the drum costs well over $399 each!

Is the print quality poor on left side for all colors? You may have one bad cartridge. Create a paint document with Yellow, Magenta and Cyan squares on the left side and see if one color prints better than the others. You can also gently shake the cartridges to redistribute toner.
Hi there! The blue color is becoming violet because the Cyan and the Magenta toners are not getting mixed in the proper 100:100 ratio (100% Magenta and 100% Cyan make CMYK Blue). Since the print is violet, the culprit is the Cyan toner. Now, first, get the Cyan Developer Assy checked if there is enough developer in it. If no, get it refilled by a proper tech and manually mix about 50 grams of the Cyan Toner with the developer. Also get the tech to check the trimmer gap on the Developer Assy with a metering gauge. If yes, next check the Cyan dispenser motor located on the backside of the Toner Housing Assy. It is probably broken and not dispensing any toner to the Cyan Developer Assy . Additionally, check for the Cyan Dispenser Auger blockage or jam. It is located under the Cyan Toner Cartridge in the Toner Housing Assy and also check the auger under the Cyan Developer Assy. After sorting these out, you should get proper CMYK blue from the 10th or 12th page once you resume printing.Let me know. Regards
go to the control panel and then printers and fax. double click your printer and click on the tab and button to "clean print heads". after doing this, click on "align print cartridges". this will fix the streaking problem you have
