Question about Kyocera Mita FS 3800 Laser Printer
MY PRINTER IS PRINTING IN AN GREY COLOR ALL OVER THE PAGE AS IF IT WAS DIRTY OR SMEARED WITH TONER.
My employer is having same problem with several printers across the network. I just found this page at Kyocera's site http://www.kyoceramita.com.au/cs_paper_spec.asp which says a lot about the type of paper to be used to avoid problems but the one which leaped off the page to me was this:
"Glossy paper or coated paper may suffer from grey background print." We all point fingers at the toner, drums, printers but it seems like the paper is a more likely culprit. I haven't tested this solution but though I would post it anyway. Even if it doesn't solve my problem, maybe it will solve yours.

Go to the print driver, properties, device settings, PDL. Hit the drop down box and select PCL5. Try this first.
You could have bad toner in it. Is it OEM?
It is possible to take off the side panels on the Process unit, release the tension springs on both sides and crack open the unit. You have to remove the corona,take off the bias board and slide out the drum shaft. Vacuum out the unit and clean off the mag roller. Toner stuck on the mag roller can also do this. Once toner has adhered to the mag roller, all you can do is clean it off with a solvent....or replace it. This is "not" easy to do. I only suggest trying this, if you have done cartridges before.

Hello helpless try to clean the printer from smeared tonner and the transfer. the grey print could be as a result of printing using application sofware. make sure the tonner economy mode is not active form the application software,if it was turn it off and save, then reprint.
