Try cleaning the laser lens glass cover. If the machine has been transported it is quite possible toner has spilled onto one half of the glass and is obstructing the laser.

Whats the copier counter say?

If its around 130,000 to 150,000 it could be time for service. It could need developer and a drum as well.

If it isn't there could be something going on with the transfter belt.

Are you able to get service on your copier in your area?

Faded black and white printouts


If you remove the toner cartridge and gently shake it side to side, then reinstall it, does the problem go away, or come back after a few pages? I would suspect you have a bad toner cartridge/image unit and recommend you put in a new one.

Sir I have this printer. But it prints fade on some part of page. Please solve the problem


It's possible that the toner-cartridge is nearing empty.
Remove the cartridge, and gently "roll" it side-to-side -- do NOT "shake" it.
Re-insert the cartridge, and see if the print-quality is equal from side-to-side of the page.

PRINTING ON PAGE IS VERY FADED AND SOME PARTS NOT PRINTING AT ALL


First, checkthat the USB cable is secure in both the printer and the computer and that theprinter is sitting on a flat surface. The printer may not work if it is tilted.

Next, run a printer check to make sure the printer is operational. To run aprinter check, turn off the printer and the computer and unplug the USB cable.Turn on the printer and press the Maintenance button. Use the down arrow buttonon the printer to highlight More Options on the display screen and press OK.Highlight Nozzle Check and press OK twice. If a page prints out, reinstall theR300 software on your computer.
Lines inPrintout
R300 mayproduce printouts with light horizontal lines that are not a part of theprintout. This is called banding and can have several causes. First, trycleaning the printer head to clear any clogged nozzles. To clean the printerhead on the R300, press the down arrow button to highlight More Options andpress OK. Use the arrow buttons to highlight Head Cleaning and press OK twice.The printer will take about 30 seconds to clean the print head, after which youshould run a printer check as described above. If the printout has gaps, pressthe STOP button to run the print head cleaning feature again. Once there are nogaps in the printout, press OK.

If the printout still has banding, open the Print window on your computer andclick on Properties. In the Properties window you can choose the print quality,speed and printer type. Select a higher print quality and a lower speed andmake sure the paper type matches the type you are using for the printout.

Finally, check that the ink cartridges are not empty or close to empty andreplace them as needed.
Faint Printout
If your printout looksfaint or faded when using the R300, try cleaning the print head. Next, replaceany ink cartridges that are old, low on ink or out of ink. Check that the papersetting on the computer matches the type of paper you are using for theprintout.

Another potential cause of faded printouts is incorrectly loaded paper. Sometypes of paper have a printable side that is whiter or shinier on one sidecompared to the other. The printable side of the paper needs to be loaded intothe printer face up.

Printing won't work.


Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.
