Replaced toner cartridge but printing quality is very poor to almost nil. What could be the problem? The previous toner I replaced worked very well, but this time its not. I tried cleaning the drum but this did not work.

To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Faded printing issues with Brother MFC-9320


Try cleaning the corona wire on each toner cartridge. This may help solve your solution.
If this does not help try another thing.
Try and replace the toner cartridge. Maybe your toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Usualy when printed images are light or pale a toner cartridge replacement is recommended.

New black ink but very poor quality print?


Is this an original DEll toner, or a remanufactured one?
Sometimes a remanufactured cartridge can need a few pages printed before the new toner 'works ' through the internal mechanisms. Not all remaufacturers actually test (all) of their cartridges. The better ones test 100%, to ensure a quality product.

It could be that the wrong toner has been used in the cartridge (not all toner is the same - by a long way).

It could be that the drum has NOT been replaced. These can be light damaged and result in a poor print quality. An original drum is purple in colour. Aftermarket drums are blue/green.

Smasung ML2510 Laser print quality poor especially on graphics


Full isn't always the answer, in order to refill a cartridge properly you need to also replace the cleaning blade inside. The blade wears out and doesn't clean the drum properly and also lets toner leak all over. Your best bet is a new OEM cartridge, or put a new cleaning and Dr. blade in yours.

Printed pages look terrible...


I'm more familiar with HP printers, but it sounds like a fuser is bad. The fuser effects print quality as well. If you've replaced the toner, as you have.

Poor print quality


you need to replace the Drum otherwise known as the photoconductor I believe the part number is 75P5712 - your toner cartridge actually seats into the PC kit.

Toner stuck on green roller of cartridge so i'm getting poor print quality


You need to replace the cartridge. it is faulty. there is a spot on that cartridge that is not properly magnetized so it is retaining toner instead of releasing it. you can clean it off but will most likely continue to have the same problem. Clean it with a lint free cloth or paper towel DRY. Do not use any chemicals or water if the toner is salvageable then that would ruin it.

Poor print quality


After you have printed a page remove the toner cartridge and look at the drum underneath, is there a ghost image of what has just been printed on it?? if so the cleaning blade is faulty and you'll need to replace the toner cartridge - this is the most likely cause of your problem.
Your printer does have a fuser and it can be replaced, but i don't think it's the problem.
