Trying cleaning the black LED's that are on the top portion of the open clamshell. Use rubbing alcohol on a rag and wipe each bar x4/. These units charge the drum surface where print is going. This should work.

SOURCE: Color Faded

This sounds like a typical Developer Drive failure. The Developer Drive for color is different that the black developer drive. This is why black can print fine, but colors are faint or non existant. see below,a recent bullitin about this exact issue from Dell. ( the ROS, is the printhead, and is located behind the 4 developers.

Print Quality Issue
1. Problem: - Color images are extremely faint or not produced, but black images are produced without any problem.
Resolution: - Replace Developer drive assembly (H6702) and clean ROS Window/Glass.
If you chose to persue this repair, you can probably find a replacement developer drive by doing either a google search for the part number listed ( H6702 ) or an ebay search for the same. We can also provide you with removal and replacement instructions.

Good Luck

the red color contains the blue and magenta colors so your problem is not printing blue insted of red , your red laser miror is dirty from inside you should open the back of the printer then open the laser scaner then clean it then replace it

SOURCE: All documents are printing in purple. Black/white and color docs

Could be the connections to the cartidge are not making good contact. I have witnessed similar events. A simple suggestion to try before throwing out your printer -- clean the connection pins where the printer interfaces with the cartridge. Remove both cartridges. You'll see the connection pins low in the cartridge carriage. I suggest the eraser end of a pencil -- a new/soft eraser will work best. These pins are spring loaded, but will return to proper position once you remove the pencil eraser. Be careful to not press too hard -- not enough force to bend the pin.

Occasionally the problem is not with the printer pins but rather the cartridge contact plates. A cotton ball or swab with a mild cleaning solvent can clean these contacts. Be careful to remove any foreign material from the surfaces before replacing. And be careful with the print head itself -- it can release ink without notice!

Hi,

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.

For more information here is the link for step by step instruction with visuals.

Hope this will help you resolve the problem.

Thank you for choosing fixya

Do both stalls need to contain a cartridge, in order to print?


Hi

Yes you are right both the stalls should contain cartridge. However, it is not necessary that the cartridges should contain ink. One of the cartridges can be empty.

Please put empty cartridge on the carriage, even if you want to print a BW document.

Faded on left hand side


If it only happens with the black then you need to change out the black toner cartridge. The good news is isn't doesn't happen with color so it more than likely not the printer but the toner.

Faded or no printing of documents


First, have you removed the protective tape from the bottom of the printer cartridge? I know it sounds simple, but it's something easy to overlook when you install a new cartridge.
