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.

Print is not clear , when we are printing light print is coming, we have already changed the cartridge but the problem is still there


You need to see if the problem is coming from all of the colors or just one. You can print an internal test sheet or just print something with cyan, magenta, yellow and black to see if one or all of them are faded.
If all of the colors are faded and you have already replaced the cartridges then check the fuser unit. It is possible that the toner isn't fusing properly.

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,

Red color faded and red color is mis-aligned.


Hi We've been seeing alot of the HP Color Laserjet range of laser printers coming through with a "prints lightly with red" or "red is faded" fault report, we've been able to resolve the problem mostly by cleaning the scanner. Misalignment is normally resolved therafter by calibrating the machine using its calibration function. (if it has one) Wouldnt suggest this gets tried unless one is familiar with stripping and reassembling these machines though. Hope this helps.

Can't receive fax but can send fax


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.

No, the toner is clear on the whole page except for the right side where it fades out and you can barely make out the words. Everything else on the page is fine. The drum still has 17% of life left in it.

Dear guys, your toner cartridge is low and as a preventive measure, the unit stores the faxes in order to give priority to copying and printing. If you are using remanufactured cartridges, the unit might not be displaying the low toner warning.

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
