Too much moisture in the paper will cause blotchy, light and faded print. Run the copy through a second time on the reverse side. If the second side is good you have a paper moisture problem. (Usually happens in non-airconditioned spaces during humid periods if the paper has been stored in the open.) Hope this helps.

One side of copy is smudged with too much toner, while the right side is faded and too light to read.

100% the problem contains in toner cartridge. If the toner is refilled, probably there is a problem with "doctor blade" of the cartridge. Try to clean it very carefully, because maybe there is a "crystalized toner " on the blade.

Text hard to read very faded.think its dust how do i clean it

Dust does not cause fading on printouts

Poor Ink supply or dirty head does

Check in your screen software for the head cleaning program and use it

Are you using Lexmark cartridges or copies, if you are using copies the software cannot see them and does not report a low level

If you are using genuine or really good copies then you may need to use a head cleaning cartridge

try for infrormation on the above

The screen on my dell 9300 is faded and hard to read. What do I need to replace to repair it.

If the computer logo (dell or any other brand which u are having) is clear then this is not an screen issue and if it is also faded then u will have to repair the screen.
This might be the issue related with panel or back light so please get it checked by a professional.
