Faded print on right side of page. When I copy/print in black, why is the black print faded on the right side of the paper?

Your toner cartridge may be the culprit.
Take the cartridge out and shake sideways and up/down. Reinstall it and try again.
If it's still printing faded side, replace the cartridge.

1815dn printing is faded

IF this is a high use printer, there are some other things that might be in need of attention. There is a corona wire, drum and drum wiper that are consumables too.

Black print is faded on my HP deskjet 6980 printer. Whenever I print a word document it will have sporadic fading. It will be fine in one place then all faded in another. I've cleaned the cartridges and...


Here are some steps you can check to resolve your issue.

Check if the ink cartridges are low, specially the color black since if the black is empty, you are using the colored cartridges to print black. If the cartridges are newly replaced check the cartridges by reseating it. Try to consider changing the print quality high but doing so will use more ink. If still the same try to clean your printer heads.

Here are the instruction for cleaning your printer.

Open the printer tool box. (open a word, then click on file then print, choose properties, then services)
click on clean the print cartridges, then clean. Do test printing as well to check if the color is correct. If still the same calibrate the color which can be found in the same menu.

Hope this will help you resolve the problem.

Faded printing on right side of pages

This is most likely caused by an unequal distribution of toner in the cartridge. If stored on its end, the toner tends to cake up on one side. Take the toner cartridge out and gently shake it from end to end, like you're slowly shaking a cocktail shaker. This will break up the toner and redistribute it evenly.

Hope this helps!

Fading prints and new cartridge error, will not aliegn

It's possible it is the new cartridge, but it sounds more like the print heads. I had the same printer and same problems until I changed the print heads. You are better off buying American Made Printer Ink Cartridges Even If They Cost A Little Less Than Name Brands. I get mine from with a 1 year quality and satisfaction guarantee with free return shipping. I have used it once and had no hassle.

How can I get a clearer print? Everytime I print

Beleive it or not, sometimes a new cartridge comes with the ink clogged too, put both color cartridges over a wet towel with windows cleaner by 5 minutes, then clean both with a dry towel, try to print, if the quality print stay bad, you have to suspect the printer cartridge contacts, check if are clean (if you have to clean it, do that with the printer off), if the fail continues try to use the manufacturer warranty

HP 5610 - printing fades down the page

the printer carriage might be wearing out, it happens on the 5610's, may be time for a new printer. The fading issue sounds like a cartridge issue. Try a oem?

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C

The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.

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
