Re: Does not print has blank copy
Before you added toner was it working OK, but it was asking for toner? If so the problem may be simple. The Blue lever you pushed down and to the right to release the Developing unit, was it locked in at the Nine o'clock potion? Is it now at the Nine o'clock position now or is it in a different position now. If so make sure it is at the Nine o'clock posisition now and that the front door can close correctly. Good Luck

Run a 1/2 test. Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). print something. And watch the paper. As the paper gets about 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover, remove the toner. Look down at the paper. If you don't see smudged text, the fuser is probably bad. If you see the smudging, replace the toner.
A) Black Streaks, Shadows, And Ghosting Adjust the printer's lightness/darkness setting to 2-3 different variables and see if problem disappears.
Look at the fusing assembly - is the roller torn or does it have any black buildup? Use caution!!! It gets HOT!
A common mistake is that people think that the waste toner needs to be emptied and instead the toner needs to be replaced --- and vice versa. Check to make sure that the toner bottle is not empty. Also, if you made copies that took ( used ) more toner then the machine was able to replenish, the machine has not had a chance to catch up. Place a white sheet of paper on the platen glass and make blank white copies. You may only be able to get 1-2 copies at first but as the device catches up with the toner replenish you should be able to make more. The blank copies you make -- do NOT put that paper right back into the machine. Lay it flat and let it cool, this will help prevent unwanted jamming due to heat build up in the paper. IF you have good amount of new toner in the machine, gently tap the front line ( or rear line) that feeds the used toner into the waste bottle. Sometimes the waste toner will clog and back up into the machine giving false 'waste toner full' message.
I believe that the Heat roller in the Fuser has a build up of toner on it(in some areas) and as a result is not fully fusing the toner into the paper. when you use a thick setting you are actually slowing the speed down to allow more heat to the toner. the thicker paper causes more pressure allowing the toner to fuse properly. I would say you need a new Heat roller and possibley a pressure roller. You could try running 20 copies of a blank white page. Sometimes this will help. Poor fusing can also cause a previous image to come up on the next page or repeat itself down the page. A service call is in order if this does not work.
