Print fade on both left and right hand side

C1100 is 8 months old with moderate home office use.
Print has begun to fade on left and right hand columns.
I have replaced all toner cartridges and also photoconductor but no improvement at all.
Help please

    Thanks for this,

    I dusted everything in sight underneath the Photoconductor unit but not sure I know what/where the printer heads are!!

    Anyway, nothing improved.

Hey there

clean the printerhead using a spray duster or a soft piece of white cloth by taking out the photoconductor cartridge. just be careful by doing this.

fading of the printouts on both columns only suggest that you need your printheads to be cleaned. since youve already bought new cartridges, cleaning those heads are a must.

thanks for using fixya.

A printer head may be clogged, and needs cleaning which is the most common reason, and happens much of the time from the printer turning on and off, leaving the printer on full time is much better for it, let me know if this helps

    the heads are where the ink comes from directly onto the paper, Are you able to find these or do you need a diagram or manual?

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.

Red lines on right hand side of the screen now no picture on right hand side!


I'm not an expert, but I have determined that the vertical bars that are often red, sometimes blue ... and sometimes both ... are related to a bad control board. I've also read that a common fix is to buy a repair kit with includes the ysus, zsus and control boards ... all replaced together. My experience was that after a month or two with the 1.5" wide stripes, that you eventually loose the entire picture and have sound only. MIne comes back, but won't stay working for very long and the stripes are always there (buy used to fade and flicker sometimes). I'm planning on replacing the control board.

Print fading down right hand side


I was able to fix it by taking off the top of the printer. This involved taking off 4 screws on the top of the printer. I then had to disconnect the wires going to the control panel by unhooking them from the right side. I then located a thin rectangular box which I'm assuming houses the laser. I removed this with 4 more screws and turned it over. There was a little metal flap that I moved back and below was the mirror the lasers shoot on before going onto the toner.

In the same spot where I was having fading, I noticed a lot of toner on the mirror, so I cleaned it of, put it back together, and the fading was gone.

This was after I tried a new toner and maintenance kit.

Hope this helps
