Dear Folks, My colour laser is probably my most "valuable" and needed tool, next to my notebook. The black toner cartridge ran out and I replaced it. From that point on, the printing is very...


Well there are few tests you could run to make sure it's not the printer.

1. You said you already tried different print cartridges and it didn't make a difference.

2. Have you tried printing anything else? Like the windows test page? Does that come out gray as well? The reason I suggest this is because sometimes when printing a document you can set the printer settings to always print in "Draft" mode. This mode allows the printer to conserve the ink which make black look faded or gray. If you can make sure the printer settings are set to "Normal" or "High Quality" then test.

3. Also are you buying the printer cartridges from the same vendor? What I mean is that sometimes different vendors have different quality of printer cartridges. Some sell re-use/re-furbished print cartridges for a much lower price, and some sell OEM (original equipment manufacturer) for "an arm and a leg". So make sure you have a good quality print cartridges.

Hope this helps

P.S In the future you should let us know what make and model your printer is, this will help us narrow down the issue, or if we have had this issue happen to us we can let you know.

Print quality is poor. I hace cleaned corona wire and poblem is still there. Entire page is streaked with black. White paper comes out gray. What else can I do? Should I change the toner cartridge?


If you have a old drum or old toner cartridge switch them and see if it goes away. Other wise start with a new toner cartridge. I sell them for 40.00 and the drum for 60.00. Steven 818-888-0006

New black ink but very poor quality print?


Is this an original DEll toner, or a remanufactured one?
Sometimes a remanufactured cartridge can need a few pages printed before the new toner 'works ' through the internal mechanisms. Not all remaufacturers actually test (all) of their cartridges. The better ones test 100%, to ensure a quality product.

It could be that the wrong toner has been used in the cartridge (not all toner is the same - by a long way).

It could be that the drum has NOT been replaced. These can be light damaged and result in a poor print quality. An original drum is purple in colour. Aftermarket drums are blue/green.

Poor copy quality


there are 3 reason if the copy gray & less sharp:
1) the toner you are using is not compatible very well with the cartridge unit if you changed other compatible toner.
2) the cartridge going near the life-cycle, (also cause print blurred)
3) the photo drum going near the life-cycle
you may try to change the quality toner (original factory). or
change the cartridge if it is out of the life-cycle

Poor quality since changing ink.


If you didn't have this problem with the last toner than more then likely the new one is deffective. It seems to be having a ghosting issues which happens when the dr blade inside the toner does not clean properly. You need to try another toner cartridge.

Poor print quality


you need to replace the Drum otherwise known as the photoconductor I believe the part number is 75P5712 - your toner cartridge actually seats into the PC kit.
