You are probably getting low on toner. Your printer also might just need a little cleaning. I would open up the front of the printer and take out the toner/drum. Wipe off the edge of the toner cartridge with a dry cloth to remove excess toner. Replace the toner cartridge and see if this works!

Thermal printer very light print image

I forgive you did put this between the motherboards. Should be in Printers.
I could not find anything in the manual, that says this printer could print light characters. (or any gradation) this is emulated with spacing between dots. So I think :
1 The trminal array, that heats the paper has a voltage a bit to low (very unlikely)
2 the paper is not ok. If it is the same paper you always have used, are you sure it was stored correct. Not to moist, not to long?
Did you buy or get paper from another factory?
When you heat the paper, does it turn black anyway? Or does it stay gray (light gray). I don't know at what temperature the paper should change to black. Can't find this in the manual.

Hp laserjet 3055. after printing labels, a few at a time, over and over. The label paper is no longer white, it is gray. The label paper picks up dirt from the printer.

Labels are a problem, as they really kill the printer, if they come off. It sounds like your issue may be that you need LASER labels, which are less affected by the temperature of the laser cure process.

Unwanted gray stripes on paper

Printer needs a good clean and service.
Toner particles have probably split onto the fuser drum or has been contaminated by previously printed paper losing some toner.
As the particles get re-heated, they become waxy and smear around the drums and rollers.
For stripping and cleaning procedure, check the FIXYA manuals and tips, searching for your model, or similar one, or try a manuals download website and enter your make & model.
HP may also have the info.
You'll probably need a service manual rather than the user manual.

Printer cant print in black and white

This happend to me also and I finally found out that the printer uses collor cartidges for GRAY printing. The back cartridge is used for BLACK printing ONLY. So if the printer was short of one collor in my case it was magenta (red) the gray parts of BW prints started to be green!!! When I put new magenta cartridge to the printer gray was gray again...

My HP 2900n is turning the white paper gray on everything. How do you clean the roller?

Check the Density settings first and might as well check Brightness and Contrast.
