Faded print on right side of page. When I copy/print in black, why is the black print faded on the right side of the paper?


Your toner cartridge may be the culprit.
Take the cartridge out and shake sideways and up/down. Reinstall it and try again.
If it's still printing faded side, replace the cartridge.

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.

Fading copies


Hi

If you have stock toner for very long time, I suggest you just shake it well to distribute evenly the toner powder.

If this solution doesn't help, roller drum inside the copier that might worn out and needs replacement.

I hope it helps you.

What causes a white streak and faded print to appear on copies?


Most often on the PC940 this means your toner cartridge is getting low on toner. To prove this is the cause, just remove the toner cartridge and while keeping it relatively level, shake it side to side a few times. This will re-distribute the remaining toner in the cartridge. Re-install and make a copy. The black streak/faded copy should be much better. If so then I would go ahead and get a new cartridge on the way.
Thank You for using Fixya.
