Make sure if you blow it out that you blow out the drum unit itself,as this is likely causing some of your problem

First make sure you have fresh paper! Believe it or not, damp paper can make a page faded like that. Also try blowing it out (with the cartridge out) with a can of air... maybe you have some toner lose on the laser glass... it's on the inside top. If it started after you replaced the drum, you may have a defective drum itself.

Right side of printed page is faded


pull out your drum unit and look inside machine above where the drum would be. you should see a black assembly that runs left to right with a "****" glass. may need a flashlight. clean that glass off with a clean rag. sometimes toner "scatter" will get on glass and cause this.

let us know,

I have a feeling that it is a re-manufactured or compatible cartridge??
There is a fuse that needs to be replaced on this unit. it blows when the cartridge is installed to reset the machine. If the fuse has not been replaced or is defective the machine will not recognize the new unit.

Gears grinding with Brother Intellifax 4100


Does it only make the noise when printing. Do you hear the noise when sending out faxes? I have heard grinding noises onlt when using poor quality toner refills, or the fuser gear and or drive gear asm is stripped. First try a known good OEM toner.

Faded areas showing up on copy


jhahn, It sounds like your machine needs a through cleaning from a repair company. There are many good independant vendors out there that will come out for less than $100 for a time and material call on your fax. If you want to try to do something on your own, you can take a can of air and spray the air throughout the machine. If you give me the city you live in, I can give you some ideas for some companies close by if the canned air doesn't work. john
