SOURCE: Dirty Background on Printouts
The most likely problem is not with the drum unit but rather with the developer unit and there is a leakage current within the unit causing the 'ghosting' on the printed images.
I would suggest that you replace the developer unit within the system. It is quite possible that the waste toner blade is contaminated with debris from using non-OEM toner within the unit. Therefore leaving residual toner particles on the surface of the drum.
Try this solution and see if that corrects your problem. This solution can be applied to virtually any laser printer, copier or MFP device in the industry. The problem is nearly 99% of the time related to CHEAP toner cartridges that are refilled or refurbished and the company doing the work does NOT replace the cleaning blades within the units, and they use a generic polyester-resin toner that does not conform to manufacturer standards.
I worked as a Design Engineer for Kyocera-Mita America for nearly 6 years and have seen this problem many times in the industry. The price you save on using recycled cartridges ends up costing you more when you have to replace a developer or drum unit.
Hope this information helps you out.

There could just be a lot of toner inside the printer, but it could also be the drum unit (which also collects the waste toner) is so full that it is leaking.
This typically happens when the 'replace drum' indication is reset without actually replacing the drum.
If you have reset this without replacing the drum, and the print count is in excess of 30,000, you probably just need to replace the drm unit.
