Usually Brother printers/MFUs have separate drum and toner cartridges. There is a blue slider on the drum unit, that cleans the primary charging corona wire. Slide it back and forth to clean the wire.
Check the counter for printed copies and compare with the drum life. You may have to replace it.

How to fix faded copying on brother mfc7360


Gradual fading, going from dark to light or vice versa, is usually caused by unequal toner distribution. Just remove the toner cartridge and shake it by rotating 45 degrees to one side along its axis and then back to zero and then the other direction. It's ok for the cartridge to leak a little amount of toner, so it's recommended to use plastic gloves and do it over an old newspaper to avoid smearing toner all over.

Faded printing issues with Brother MFC-9320


Try cleaning the corona wire on each toner cartridge. This may help solve your solution.
If this does not help try another thing.
Try and replace the toner cartridge. Maybe your toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Usualy when printed images are light or pale a toner cartridge replacement is recommended.

Brother hl2142 printing copies out which look faded


The toner could be low.
When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

How do i change the toner on m my HL 2040 brother printer


How to Change a Toner Cart in a Brother HL 2040

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360)
* Paper towel or scrap paper



Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.

Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.



Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.


Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.


Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.


Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.


Hope it helps...

You may need to change your drum unit. The replacement part number is DR400

To replace the drum unit follow the instructions listed below:


Caution
    Do NOT use flammable substances or any type of spray to clean the inside or outside of the machine. Doing this may cause a fire or electrical shock.
spray.gif Caution
    Just after you have used the FAX/MFC, some internal parts of the machine are extremely HOT! When you open the top cover of the FAX/MFC, never touch the shaded parts as shown in the diagram below:

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Remove the old drum unit. Place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering the toner.

  2. Reinstall the toner cartridge into the new drum unit.
  3. Reinstall the new drum unit, keeping the front cover open.
  4. Press the Clear key to display drum status.
  5. Press 1 on the telephone keypad.

  1. When the display shows "ACCEPTED", close the front cover.
Note
    Discard it according to local regulations. If you are not sure of them, call your local Sanitation Department. Be sure to seal the drum unit tightly so toner powder does not spill out of the unit. When discarding used drum units, keep them separate from domestic garbage.

Cleaned printer but printing is faded...


You may need to replace the toner cartridge or replace the transfer roller, I believe that's what it's called. It's the roller that transfers the ink from the toner cartridge to the paper.

Faded prints about 2" in from the margin


Greetings!

{You used the term "drum". This may indicate a roll type of toner rather than a cartridge style of toner. The following tip is for a cartridge style.}

I get much the same symptom when my HP laser cartridge is running low, and no, it doesn't have a "low toner" indicator either. I get by a little longer with mine, long enough to get out and buy a new one that is, by removing it, holding it over a garbage can at an angle and firmly tapping on it to loosen any compacted toner. I then turn it back horizontally and gently shake it back and forth to evenly distribute the remaining toner through the cartridge and reinsert it into the printer. This usually gets me nice, even prints back and extends the life of the cartridge. I can usually get a few extra weeks out of it by doing this two or three times.

Good luck!
Rob

Faded print quality


If your toner saver is off and still getting faded quality means you mirrors and Scanning Lamp are not reflecting images properly.
Now if you are handy on printer then you need to take off glass

Printer overlap


sounds like a defective cartridge, if it's a generic toner the seals may not have been replaced, buy a new one and return the other as defective.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.
