Black fades left to right

From about the middle of the page (left to right) the black gets lighter

    My color fades on the the outer edges. I get two stripes down each side about 2-3" wide that are lighter than the rest of the colors. I tried printing bars of color to see if it's one toner that's bad but it seems to be consistent down the page. I have replaced all part to date...new toner, drums, belt and fuser. I changed drums and had to change toners at the same time and it seems to have started at the same time. But I think I changed the belt around that time too so I can't say what caused it all of a sudden.

Faded side of page


It sounds like you have a bad charge transfer roller. This roller is located below the toner cartridge. Open the top and remove the toner. Look under where the toner come out from, you will see a black roller that goes from side to side. The roller should be black, if it appears gray or white that it is worn and is can not transfer the charge properly to the paper so the toner does not transfer either so you get faded print. Do not touch the roller with your bare fingers because the oils on your fingers will damage the roller. You can ge the transfer roller as a part or in a maintenance kit with the paper pickup rollers. It is best to install the maintenance kit if your printer is over a few years old and has not had it installed already. The maintenance roller kit is available here: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=172

Left side of page prints lighter than rest of page


You should contact Dell about returning these for a replacement, it sounds to me like a manufacturer's error.

Three small white vertical lines in black printwhere the black does not print. Not present in other colors.


This is coming from the Black Drum Unit. You may be able to remove the unit and look into the slot on the top. You should see the drum which is green in color and may be able to see the lines. Not much you can do with these units so you may just have to replace it.

While printing in black middle of page fades out both sides of the page print well. this is about a 1 inch fade out in middle of page.


Replace the drum of the particlular color cartridges. To know which color you have to print in single color one by one. If problem persist then replace transfer belt .

Print on left hand side of page is faded as you look to the middle and right hand side of page print is clear


Place one hand either side if printer,
Gently shake the printer left and right a few times without lifting it off the desk..

What happens is that when a laser printer is moved and is not kept level the toner will move to one side or the other, the gentle shake evens out the toner.

Samsung CLX-2160, keep getting faded toner stripe down page. changed toner numerousof times The same problem occurred for me after only 300 pages. The black color on the all prints is faded out on the...


Everyone will tell you that it's the Imaging Unit - happy to say that's not true. If it was the imaging unit the colors would not come out right either. I bet if you print a test page that all the colors come out fine across the page. It's only the black.

Also - if you replace the black toner cartridge, or reinstall your printer and drivers like some people will tell you - still no results.

The problem is in the black toner cartridge PATH inside the printer. Something has jammed it up a bit. Try taking out the black cartridge and blowing firmly into the small hole at the bottom of the spout that looks to have a sponge inside. Use a straw and make sure your air blown is dry. Then lightly tap the cartridge a few times. Then use the straw and once again blow very firmly inside the receiving path (inside the printer) for the spout on the cartridge. Make sure you are blowing into the spout path at the bottom - not the gear drive path in the middle - as that will not do any good.

Replace the cartridge, warm up and print another black and white page. You should see that the faded out section is gone or diminished in size. If it is not gone, simply repeat the above steps until it is gone. You will see that the faded out strip gets smaller and smaller each time until it's gone. I had to repeat five times, but eventually got it corrected. Now prints like brand new so don't get discouraged.

Page is printed but fade


The toner cartridge is faulty. It is possible that when you pulled out the strip that the whole thing didn't come out. Return the cartridge (with a couple of printed sheets to demonstrate printing) and the receipt and you should get a replacement.

Faded print on one side of page


I have a SCX-4100 Samsung, replaced the tonger cartridge, it was working fine for a few hundred sheets of printing, but after that, the left side of the page was printed very light, faded.
If I run the "Clean Drum", it will print a litter better, but still faded.
What can I do to correct this problem?
Thank you
