Faded Stripe in the middle of the page

You need to clean the drum When I was working for the City There was the same problem with the Laser printers. Check the Manuel and see if there is a page on cleaning the print drum on your machine. Also you may try Talking the cartage out cleaning there as well It seems you are picking this up form somewhere after the print My Guess would be the print drum? You may also have to replace the drum as well. I am guessing that this is a laser printer? if not then there are other solutions.

Faded print on both sides.

The scanner assembly is dirty. Remove all the toner and blow with blower or cold air dryer, in the gaps at the back of the printer. If it still printers faded then the printer must be stripped and the scanner taken out and serviced. (About 1.5 hours work by expierenced technician)

Good luck

While printing in black middle of page fades out both sides of the page print well. this is about a 1 inch fade out in middle of page.

Replace the drum of the particlular color cartridges. To know which color you have to print in single color one by one. If problem persist then replace transfer belt .

I have an HP 5550 Series Deskjet printer. Only recently, I have encountered difficulty printing labels. I have double-checked the Printing Properties, including label size, label paper size, Avery paper #,...

This printer have the capabilites of sense the size of label, each colomn width.
So, you must set the right size of colomn width, in your application (ms. word) to match label width.

May this help.

Faded print on one side of page

I have a SCX-4100 Samsung, replaced the tonger cartridge, it was working fine for a few hundred sheets of printing, but after that, the left side of the page was printed very light, faded.
If I run the "Clean Drum", it will print a litter better, but still faded.
What can I do to correct this problem?
Thank you

Faded line going through

Anne, This could be several things-here is a list... 1. transfer roller or belt dirty, especially if inside of printer looks like it needs a cleaning. You could vacuum with toner vacuum or take it in for service. 2. scanner mirrors dirty. would need to be serviced by a technician. 3. scanner toner shield out of position-tech needed. 4. toner cartridge needs to be shaken horizontally-toner could be all on one side of hopper. 5. the fusing section could have work rollers, they sometimes get scored and leave a strange brownish line on the page that sort of fades if you print multiple pages. Again, tech would be needed. Anne, thanks and good luck.. Thanks and good luck...
