Re: Printer with new toner cartridge printing too light...
Recover the cartridges, en sure there is no 'transportation tape still on the cartridges, if not gently share the cartridges horizontaly whilst also holding it horizontaly. Try again. If it still points incorrectly send it back for a replacement,.

The problem with this is the design. Each toner cartridge has a microchip on it, that counts the pages you print. The company has determined that you get x amounts of prints. Then you have to replace it, empty or not. This printers do not work the same way as an expensive professional business copier. In an pro style there is a spent toner cartridge that collects all of the wasted toner that is on the drum. On a small business/home style this spent toner goes back into the cartridge. There is no level indicator, even on the inkjet printer. They too, have a chip that says you have x amount of prints/cleaning cycles they can go through. Look up inkjet refill kits or inkjet cartridge programmer.
When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint.
You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer.
This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter.
A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.
If it is the there is a gear that can be reset on the toner cartridge to tell the machine its a new toner cartridge. This is normally done by an engineer, but is quite easy to do if you know how. And I do :0
sound like the printer need a good cleaning. including the toner opening.
The toner may be expired. as the color pigment deteriorated with age.
usual color pigment store in a dry and cool place can last 2 years, if lefted out in the printer, it may only give you max 1 year.
I had the same or similar problem - the printer would sometimes print as many as two sheets before the outcoming sheet would stick at the top output roller (just before it goes into the output tray).
I tried dumping and cleaning out the waste toner canister also. It did not completely fix the problem but it is acting much better - I can now get 8-10 sheets through before it sticks at the top output roller.
I have had this printer over a year now and seem to remember having issues before where the recommendations was to buy a new canister instead of dumping out the used toner and re-using the current canister. I think I might go that route now that I seem to have resolved weird issues twice by dumping out this canister.
