When printing text, it comes out black at the top of the page, but fades out and eventually cannot be seen at all in the middle of the page. The cartridges are not empty. Any help would be much appreciated!!

This is a difficult one to solve without being on site.
Is the RED text actually "magenta"? in, which case suspect the magenta drum unit?
Is the text always spaced exactly the same distance down the page, in which case suspect the magenta drum unit.
Is the text a sample of what you were printing, in which case suspect the Magenta drum unit.
Check, if you were printing an A3 would you possibly see this text more than once spaced down the whole of the page?
If the text is spaced approximately 6" apart then suspect the Magenta drum unit, if a lot more than that suspect the Black belt inside the printer known as the IBT transfer belt and then suspect the IBT cleaner is not working efficiently.
have you had an address label stuck inside in the past?
If so, the IBT belt will need to be cleaned by someone who has seen this problem before or knows how to deal with these issues.
Sorry, I don't have one. Mine was a different problem; incompatibility between my old hp desk jet 5650 and my new Mac Book Pro. Just needed a newer printer!
When something like what you describe happens it is because the cartridge is dry; I change the cartridge.
pull out the black cartridge then get a tissue paper try pressing the nozzle again the tissue paper but not so hard then release look for the straight line that appear on the tissue paper if it is not change it
sounds like your black toner cartridge is getting low or not filled evenly. To fix this until it get a bit lower on toner just take the cartridge out and holding it up right give it a few shakes side to side. The will spread the toner power out inside and you should be printing normally again.
This can also happen if you moved or bumped the printer. Usually you only see this when the toner is low or after you print a lot of pages. Most text is in the mid of the paper so thats where the toner get s used the most.
This is usually due to the imaging unit going out, but can also be a problem with the main board itself...unfortunately that means rma is really the only option...which is NOT going to be fun fyi as samsung has poor customer service.
