There are two reasons the fade happens. Running out of toner and the drum not responding correctly.
The Drum is the unit that transfers the toner to the paper. if it gets damaged or dirty inconsistent print is usually the result.
Try taking the toner out, shaking it and replacing it to see if it affects the print quality. if it does not price a replacement drum and toner, compare it to the price of a new printer and this will answer the second part of your question!!!
I hope this helps

Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 85% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following: Are you using a manufacturer’s factory new ink cartridge or toner? I f you are using a refilled (worst possible choice) cartridge , toner or ink, or third party cartridge (2nd. worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.

horizontal lines are probably repetitive down the page, and are usually caused by a defective toner cartridge or fuser assembly. occasionaly a transfer roller will cause it as well.
Toner loves to get baked onto the fuser and cause all kinds of print problems. Not much you can do but to replace the fuser when this happens.
Ideally just replace the toner cartridge. But if fairly new, just clean the loose toner off from the old cartridge's printing surface by swabbing it as you manually turn the drum. If while doing this you notice black burned into the glassy surface of the toner cartridge or scars along the surface you'll just have to replace it. Happens once in a while, especially with refurbished cartridges.
