Dim printing

Depends how much you are using it. Typically the printer will warn you when it is low. Also you can print a supplies page from the printer menu to see how much toner you have left.

I have HP LaserJet 1160 Printer, moreover it prints dim (light) print on paper. I replace its toner, yet it is printing dim printing..... can you give me reason, what is problem?

Hi, maybe the printer is in EconoMode. To disable EconoMode please open the printig preferences in Windows. On the Paper/Quality tab or the Finishing tab, deselect the EconoMode checkbox.

Dim bulb, copies nearly black, but prints fine

The dim bulb is your clue. The more light that is reflected on the Selenium drum, the more the drum is demagnatized and less able to attract the toner. The printer now thinks you're running really dark stuff through it because there is not much light to reflect off of your original documents. See why the bulb is so dim. Good luck.

New toner prints very light. No setting changes on printer.

I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a cheap toner cartridge. Replaced it with an HP cartridge and have had any problem since.

You may have to replace the transfer belt or the drum. I would start with the drum first

Illegal toner

Sorry, this sounds outside my experience.  The only trigger for the 'illegal toner' message that I know is that the cartridge has the wrong plug on it.  A 'proper' Brother cartridge will have the same plug as the rest and be very easy to check.  
I have both refilled empty cartridges and used commercially refilled ones. As I said, the only time I have seen this message was with the wrong plug.  When I used non-spec toner I got 'ghosting' as the toner stayed too long on the transfer belt.  No error message, just poor quality printing.
OPC belts appear to need changing fairly often - I am on my third.  Take it out and have a look (note that it is light sensitive, do it quickly in dim light).  If it is not a clear shiny green it may not be up to spec.  As a quick fix you can reset the 'replace OPC belt' message, but they do wear out.  It is used to transfer toner from the cartridge to the paper - so failure means poor quality printing rather than a refusal to print.
Sorry I cannot help further.

Lexmark E250dn laser printer

Reinstall the drivers and see if it works.

Otherwise unplug the printer from the power and leave it without power for 10 minutes. Than plug it back in and let me know if it helped.
