Different looking text, but only in certain areas of the page.
Ig i have a full page of text in certain areas (strips) of the page the letters are less full. If i print many pages at once these areas become more and more faded. I have cleaned the printer and have changed the toner and still have the problem.
Re: different looking text, but only in certain areas of...
I have a broad band of empty space when the printer prints black text, but prints color pages without any problem
I spent more than $120.00 to change all the toner cartridges, but the problem remains.
By the way, there seems to be no good method of finding if the toner is low or absent, whichis a big drawback of this printer. Will never buy Samsung printer again!
Will appreciate a solution to my problem.

I will assume you need to print part of page backwards or upside down.
This is pretty easy using a Text Box. A text box can have a border, be opaque or transparent, force the text to flow around it or not.
To create a text box, go to the Insert tab, click Text Box and then I like to choose "Draw Text Box." You can draw it in the general area you need it. It's ok to use one of the preset Text Boxes, too.
Type your text inside.
To flip the text around, double-click your text box to activate it, and then look for the Rotate button in the "Arrange" section on the Ribbon. You can flip it horizontally or vertically as many times as you need to make your text upside-down or a mirror image.
Then edit your box - border, color, text wrapping, position, etc.
Print a diagnostic page
If the steps above have not helped, print and evaluate a diagnostic page to see if the cartridges or the printer is causing the problem.
Make sure the printer is on and loaded with unused, plain, white paper.
Press and hold the Power button and then press the Cancel button. Release both buttons. The diagnostic page prints.

Step 4: Note which cartridges printed which areas of the diagnostic page
You must identify which cartridge printed which part of the diagnostic page, so that if you find defects on the page, you will know which cartridge is the problem.
However, you can install different combinations of print cartridges in your printer, and different cartridge combinations print different diagnostic page patterns. Your diagnostic page may not look exactly like the picture below, but the right and left cartridges will print in the same areas of the page no matter which cartridges are installed.
Figure 2: Diagnostic page layout (the patterns in each area may look slightly different on your page)1 - Printed by the right cartridge2 - Printed by the left cartridgeNOTE:
If you are printing in reserve mode (one cartridge is missing), the missing cartridge's area of the diagnostic page will be blank.
Step 5: Check ink levelsNOTE:
If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another product, the ink level indicator is inaccurate or unavailable.
Look in the middle of the diagnostic page. The bars with "E" (for "empty") and "F" (for "full") at each end show the ink levels in the cartridges. As ink is used, the solid color changes to a faded color.

Did you run test page AFTER new cartridges installation? Please print text from different programs: Noterpad, Wordpad, Office word, excell, Browser etc.. If you see text in some other program check settings in "text not printing" program : MSWord has a setting in Options blocking texts. If you never see a text, check "Printer Preferences.." different from "Printer Properties.." Let we know if fixed by scoring this solution or tell us results for any further support.
