You probably need to replace the transfer belt. Go into the diagnostic menu and perform a half-test. Open the printer and see if the document looks right before it goes into the fuser. Be careful, the toner will be loose.

Download the software associated with the printer from the manufacturer web site to make sure you have the latest version. If this doesn't fix the problem you may have to buy a new print head for the printer. Also try taking the cartridge out and shaking it vigorously.

Does an old PHD cause faded colors?


the PHD transfers the image to the printed page and when it starts to go bad the images can become dull or faded and even blurry or totally missing. Id recommend the PHD be replaced and it should resolve your issues.

The color red is dull when printing


I assume you've checked magenta toner cartridge level, and tried cleaning.
If so, the next thing to do is try cleaning the scanner mirror. On these models the mirror nearest the magenta toner builds up dust the most quickly, hence why it is the first colour to fade on prints. Only use dry swabs (no solvents) and compressed clean air on the mirrors.

Samsung CLX-2160, keep getting faded toner stripe down page. changed toner numerousof times The same problem occurred for me after only 300 pages. The black color on the all prints is faded out on the...


Everyone will tell you that it's the Imaging Unit - happy to say that's not true. If it was the imaging unit the colors would not come out right either. I bet if you print a test page that all the colors come out fine across the page. It's only the black.

Also - if you replace the black toner cartridge, or reinstall your printer and drivers like some people will tell you - still no results.

The problem is in the black toner cartridge PATH inside the printer. Something has jammed it up a bit. Try taking out the black cartridge and blowing firmly into the small hole at the bottom of the spout that looks to have a sponge inside. Use a straw and make sure your air blown is dry. Then lightly tap the cartridge a few times. Then use the straw and once again blow very firmly inside the receiving path (inside the printer) for the spout on the cartridge. Make sure you are blowing into the spout path at the bottom - not the gear drive path in the middle - as that will not do any good.

Replace the cartridge, warm up and print another black and white page. You should see that the faded out section is gone or diminished in size. If it is not gone, simply repeat the above steps until it is gone. You will see that the faded out strip gets smaller and smaller each time until it's gone. I had to repeat five times, but eventually got it corrected. Now prints like brand new so don't get discouraged.

Color toners are empty


Press Green Tick, Right, -> System Setup -> Right, Right, -> Print Quality, Right -> Replace Supplies. Change from stop at out, to override at out. It'll let you print, and you'll get loads more out of your toner before the pages start to fade.
