Despite new cartridge the black ink comes out very - 34ffb5e.jpg If your printer prints like the above image, then the problem lies with the black developer blade. Each toner has a developer blade which is located in the imaging unit. As the printer is used, toner residue builds up on the developer blade causing the print to become faded. As the build up continues, the print almost becomes completely white.

This seems to be a very common problem with this printer judging by the number of complaints about samsung print quality problems that are posted here. The only way of fixing this is to buy a new imaging unit. This can get expensive typically around $100. Especially since the problem occurs way below the expected life of the imaging unit which Samsung said it is 20,000 images. Mine it started to fade around 5000 images.

If you are handy, you can clean the developer blades yourself. Go to this link It describes how to open your imaging unit and to clean the blades. It only takes about 15 minutes to do but you must be careful when you clean the blades and reinstalling them back into the developer. If you do it correctly, the image you get is as different as night and day. Hope this can help someone.
