The toner section may not be seated properly in the drum unit. Try removing the toner section and putting it back in the drum section being very careful to keep the cartridge in alignment with the drum.

Hi, I have had my CLX-2160 printer for 3 years now and its started to print with a fade on the left side only and have just under half black ink left. Is it worth changing the black toner cartridge or does...


Hello.
There are two reasons the fade happens. Running out of toner and the drum not responding correctly. The Drum is the unit that transfers the toner to the paper. if it gets damaged or dirty inconsistent print is usually the result. Try taking the toner out, shaking it and replacing it to see if it affects the print quality. if it does not price a replacement drum and toner, compare it to the price of a new printer and this will answer the second part of your question!!!
I hope this helps Regards GM

My printer prints but on the left side of the page the print is all faded going about one inch in. i just replaced the drum and cleaned the corona wire twice. please help


The toner powder is not evenly distributed or it sticked together, A light shaking the toner cartridge will the distribute evenly the toner. Maybe is it stock for a long period of time.

The print on the right side of the page is faded.


Could be the fuser, or the drum is not getting the charge on that side.

Faint area down left side of page


When you say "Cleaned the lens" I presume you mean the four LED print heads. Use a spirit to clean them with if the toner dust is hard to remove. I usually just use a finger and wipe the entire length. Make sure there is no foreign item laying on the drum top where the black plastic film is as the led head may not seat properly on it. Clean all the silver high voltage springs down the left side of the printer. They make contact with the drums. If you still have a problem then try printing solid colour blocks ie Yellow, Magenta ,Cyan and Black . This will identify which colour is giving the problem . Change that drum and all should be well.

Right side of printed page is faded


pull out your drum unit and look inside machine above where the drum would be. you should see a black assembly that runs left to right with a "****" glass. may need a flashlight. clean that glass off with a clean rag. sometimes toner "scatter" will get on glass and cause this.

let us know,

Info Print 1352 one half faded other half normal print.


You require a replacement transfer roller, if you remove the toner cartridge and look in the printer, you will see a roller which sits underneath the toner cartridge, this is what you need to replace

Page is printed but fade


The toner cartridge is faulty. It is possible that when you pulled out the strip that the whole thing didn't come out. Return the cartridge (with a couple of printed sheets to demonstrate printing) and the receipt and you should get a replacement.

Faded print on left hand side of paper


This type of printing defect is normally caused by 1 of a few problems - the easier one first:

1. Toner cartridges sometimes do not have the toner evenly distributed - close the toner cartridge and inspect the hopper right below it for even distribution of toner.

The harder ones:

2. This type of defect can also be caused by dirty charging section - for the drum to pick up the toner it must be charged electrically prior to exposure - if the charge grid is not clean then it will not give the drum an even charge - not sure were this is in this printer yet - looks like it comes as part of the drum kit so this should not be causing this issue.

3. The last and most difficult to check is paper alignment with the drum - is the paper contacting the drum evenly - look for possible problems in the paper path with the drum unit removed - look for something uneven around the area were the paper contacts the drum

Faded print on one side of page


I have a SCX-4100 Samsung, replaced the tonger cartridge, it was working fine for a few hundred sheets of printing, but after that, the left side of the page was printed very light, faded.
If I run the "Clean Drum", it will print a litter better, but still faded.
What can I do to correct this problem?
Thank you
