    Still no joy - it is slightly better, but no readable. Any other suggestions?

This could have been caused by a number of things. The transfer roller, a spongy looking black roller on the left door could be broken somewhere so the roller does not keep pressure on the paper and aid in transfer of tone from the drum to the paper. Check that or you may need to refresh your developer so you need to enter 1087 1087 on the key pad, this will take you to a maininance mode and then enter 130 and start this will take you to a screen and will say something like setting developer, tap execute and then push the start button and after a few minutes your machine will have refreshed your developer. Then hit clear a few times and enter 001 and start witch would take you back to the copier screen. if this does not work just shut your copier off then on and your machine will have reset. Try the Copies agian. Hopefully that will work.

Just changed the toner and the printer now prints faintly


There are two reasons for faint/ light printing:

1- Toner Saving Mode may be turned-on from the printer OR from printer settings in windows
2- There could be dust/ Toner Dust accumulated on the mirrors and lenses inside the printer, which partially blocks laser beams and requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.

Hope this helps!

Copier function prints faintly


Usually the setting that causes that is when you have the toner save function turned on. It saves toner by making lighter prints.

My printer is printing colour red faintly, the toners are new and genuine. it also takes some times before it starts printing.


Sherry, in all probability it is the "scanner assembly" HP can fix this for $279 in the US using HP Express exchange 1 day ship, this was the result of their active chat. I am having the same problem and am going to dismantle the printer myself to see if I can't clean the scanner mirror myself. If you search the following words on google you will find some info, fading red tones laser jet 2605, one of the first results is a page on the HP site specifically on laserjet printers. I wish I had a quick fix that would help; however, a new cartridge won't help!

When printing, as thepaper is being transported up the printer, try pressing the right door panel of the printer firmly with your hand. If the colours are much improved then the printer requires a new Transfer roller.
1. Open the Right Door.
2. Remove the Transfer Roller while opening the shaft holder (white color) levers found at the left and right shaft ends of the Transfer Roller to unlock it. Lift out the roller.

My printer won't print multiple pages


The Toner is running low. What is happening is you are low on toner in the MIDDLE of the Cartiridge. Take the cartridge out and jently shake it left to right (be careful you dont make a mess) this will distribute the toner evenly. time to buy a spare as this wont last much longer.

Left hand side prints faintly


inside the toner unit, there is a stirring device to broadcast toner over full width of drum. I will guess this is the culprit, the stirring device is not turning. Try this test: remove the toner cartridge and shake it rapidly back and forth. Then try a print, any change?
