Have you by any chance set the print properties to DRAFT? that will print a light copy to save ink and looks like what you describe. goto printer properties and select the correct mode or default.

SOURCE: printing and copying almost blank pages

Ussally drum/toner would fix, will not be fuser, I would suspect Hi voltage board or laser unit, In australia these machines carry a 2 year return to base warranty.

Try reseting the drum counter, this also resets Bias voltage, might be your problem. open front cover with power on and press set, arrow to change drom and select yes.

Otherwise it would be a high voltage board problem, possibility alsoexist that it could be laser unit

Check status page for "71" errors, menu * 2 8 6 4 very very fast, machine will beep "maintence displays" then 77 to print out status page, 99 to return to normal.

This machine needs a new fuser. That is a common issue.

SOURCE: Brother 5140 faint print

I had the same problem and I just fixed it.

It turns out that the toner cartridge I was using was not an authentic brother cartridge. It was an Office Max knockoff.

I replaced the knockoff with an original BROTHER toner cartridge and BAM! Right back in business.

What tricked us for so long was that the knockoff worked for two weeks before it conked out, so while we were looking for the problem, we kept saying to ourselves, "No, it COULDN'T be the toner cartridge. It's practically brand new."

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Prints faint pages

I have the same problem. It appeared to happen only after I changed the drum but Brother says it's not the drum but could be the laser or something mechanical. It is totally random, sometimes it's fine for a week and other times it happens a few times a day.

It happens with printing and faxes. Not sure about copies.

Did you ever find a solution?

In spite of changing the black toner cartridge and toner waste receptacle, the printing remains faint


If your printer prints with faint vertical stripes like this
slamfix_22.jpg The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer. I have a link to instructions that should help you http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300 Hope this helps you.

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.

Printing is faded and too light


more important than all that nonsense is:
is it faint when you do an internal report or make a copy?
if only on copies it is the film on the underside of the glass.
if on prints and copies it is the drum.

My printer won't print multiple pages


The Toner is running low. What is happening is you are low on toner in the MIDDLE of the Cartiridge. Take the cartridge out and jently shake it left to right (be careful you dont make a mess) this will distribute the toner evenly. time to buy a spare as this wont last much longer.
