Fading black print

During printing the back print faded to almost no black print. We replaced the toner; although, the attention light was not on.

    I have also turned the unit off and back on. There is a girgling and grinding sound. The HP color print diagnostic page has color printing fine with fading black. Nothing seems to help.

Is the toner orginal?
Try printing a test page and see how that comes out?
Try shaking the toner it might be stuck on one side.

Thanks

    Are you using orginal cartridges?
    What is the model number for your printer please?


    Try cleaning where the black cartridge sits into.


    Your cartridge may be old and expired.


    Does your printer have printheads?

Black print is fading on one side of the paper. Colours are fine. What can I do? Tim


The cause of this fading is due to a build up of toner on the developer blades. If it looks like this with streaking vertical fading.
slamfix_46.jpg The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer. I have a link to instructions that should help you http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300 Hope this helps you.

The black is ghosting and text is fading out completly on right hand side


Hi

For ghost printing, i suggest you clean the fuser roller inside the cartridge compartment by a cotton swab with water and remove all the toner dirt on the roller. For faded print outs, the problem is the toner is near to end, Just replace new toner cartridge. Try also to shake the cartridge to distribute evenly the toner power.

Please let me know if you need more help

Faded streaks for only blak color on Ricoh 3500N laser printer


Your toner cartridge is probably getting low. Toner is actually a powder, and it can get settled during shipments, bringing it home, etc etc. Take out the black toner and give it a gentle side-to-side shake a few times and pop it back in.
That should help.

Hi,

Just remove all the removable parts from your printer including trays, toners, etc.

Shake your print toners so that the toner powder inside is mixed well equally throughout the drum inside.

Replace all the parts back and try printing and may be this should work fine for you.

Please provide back your ratings.
Thanks

Magicolor 2400W print fades on right side of page


Have you tried cleaning the leans at the bottom of the printer? Open the cover, pull out the drum. Under it is a long, narrow piece of glass. If it gets dusty or toner accumulates on it, it will cause streaks in the printing. If this is dirty, take a clean, soft cloth and very gently wipe it off.
