Re: Print fade on both left and right hand side
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

1. Take the toner out and shake it side to side so you even the toner level in the cartridge.
2. If this won't fix it, check toner level, might be low. If low, you need to replace toner.

Inside this access window is the cleaning rod handle. Pull it out and push it back in several times to clean printer.

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.
