Printing very light Okionly B410d printer usesblack toner cartridge


Try performing a stop test. Send a test page and turn it off mid print. Retrieve the page from the printer to see if the image is readable before it went through the fuser. If so the the fuser may need to be replaced.

When I print with my brother hl-2070n...the print out is very very faint. i have changed the toner and drum...any suggestions?


if you printing is just faint, need to replace toner, but if your printing is faint and blurry, need to add grease to the fuser film roller, need advanced skills for that, disassemble the fuser unit take out the fuser film and put some special high temp grease on the heating element, assembly all back and install, the other way is replacing the fuser unit

Samsung CLX-3175FN printer only prints VERY faint image. Just replaced all toners with genuine Samsung. Never had this problem. All contacts look clean???


Faint prints with Laser Printer usually occurs when the drum is full with the wasted ink (toner power) or when the Fuser Unit is not working correctly. First of all try cleaning the Drum and remove the wasted toner power. There should be an opening on one of the end of the drum. In some cases, it needs to be disassembled to remove the wasted inks.
Also remove the fuser unit and clean the unit. Please handle it with care and never clean it when it's hot/warm. Only do this, after the printer is left turned off for about half an hour.
If nothing is helpful, try with another/new drum or fuser, that will help you get to find out the exact cause of the problem.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My Dell 1700n Drum and Toner Cartridge were both replaced when the drum replace light blinked and the print was getting lighter. Despite resetting the Drum counter the printer still only prints faintly...


Have you checked the fuser?

A laser printer fuser assembly is the heating roller unit that melts and fuses the toner onto the paper. The fuser assembly is made up of a heating roller and a pressure roller.

The heating roller applies the heat to the toner on the printed page and the pressure roller presses and fuses the toner into the printed page. If it's bad and not heating properly, the print will be faint, which is what you describe. You may be able to remove and clean the fuser, but if the printer gets lots of use, it may just be worn out.

See this link for an idea of what it looks like and a price.

When printing, half the page is very faint and almost unreadable. The rest is fine.


This can be a bad toner cartridge or a bad fuser. Replacing the toner is an easy test, but the fuser if you need it will be expensive.

Printing too lightly


Is the paper hot when you take it off the printer? The reason I am asking is, there is a part called a fuser, its the last process in the printing cycle. The fuser gets to almost 300 degrees to melt the toner onto the paper. If the fuser is not working correctly then the paper will be room temp and their will be no print.

Ghost printing


Hi Phillip,
If you have changed the drum and toner, then check the fuser unit. The teflon coating on fuser film could be worn.

Faint printing


I have installed brand new toners that were bad. Fortunatly it was at work so I didnt have to personally purchase a second one to find out. But it does happen, espically with reconditioned toners or off brand toners

Faint mirror image when printing


It's most likely one of 2 problems...the toner cartridge or the fuser. The toner cartridge transfer roller may still be charged and keeping a little bit of the previous page's information on it, to be transferred on the next sheet. I would try a different toner cartridge first to see if that solves it.
