It could be a problem with the drum. The toner and drum are separate and either can cause problems with printing.

Smear when printing

Hi Juan.
I take it that you have a laser printer; i.e. toner cartridge.
You have probably checked your user manual.
It could be that the toner cartridge is nearly empty.
Purchase a new cartridge, and carefully replace the existing cartridge.
Many cartridges have an inbuilt fuser.
You can try cleaning all the rollers, the toner cartridge, and the fuser, but as the printing is light, you may be nearly out of toner.

Printer printing very light copies

Problem Print is too light
Source of trouble Expired toner cartridge
Resolution How old is your cartridge? Did you know that exposure to UV lights can reduce the adhesion of toner dust? You may need a new cartridge. Begin by removing the toner cartridge and vigorously shaking it from side to side, then trying it again. If that doesn't work, check your high voltage setting ,If that fails, get a new cartridge.
Resolution Look for a darkness setting - it may be in the menu system, but there might also be a lever or knob inside of the printer (check your owner's manual). HP conveniently colors these knobs and levers green. This switch regulates the amount of high voltage power that is sent to the laser and influnces the amount of toner that is attracted to the paper. Crank it up. If neither this or a new toner cartridge works, you may be having fuser problems, or need to get a new high voltage unit.

HP Laserjet 3055 All-in-one. Printing and copying too light despite brand new HP toner cartridge. On the computer, "Print Quality - print density set to highest number (5) for darkest. Also tried...

New cartridge means that the transfer corona is probably going out (or the controller board is sending wrong voltage) because it charges the paper to pull the toner off of the EP drum. This might be replaceable but you have to check with HP about buying one. I did not find them for sale on line but some models have them for about $25.

B4600, "Install Toner, Toner Missing" Error


I had a customer with that problem and the issue was the toner cartridge. If you take it out of the photoconductor unit and look on the end there should be a metal connector tab. If you look on the left side of the photo unit you will see metallic contact points that need to connect to the metal tab. Oki has several toners that will physically fit in the B4600 but they have to be the ones with the metal tab to work right or you get the error. The correct toner part numbers are: 43502301 or 43502001

Check your toner for the tab is that is not the problem, get back with me and we can go from there.

The print comes out light

Make sure you are using an OEM toner not a refurb or compatibly cartridge. If the problem persist your toner is not getting enough voltage or your laser is dirty. Check all contacts and transfer roller(which sits under your toner cartridge)make sure it rotates. You can also raise your toner density level in your configuration menu and make sure you pull your toner strip out of your toner cartridge. If the problem still persist I recommend a service tech.

Toner quality is still light after installing new toner cartridge

No, if the old one prints better than the new ones, it is a toner cartridge problem. Are they remanufactured /compatibles? I suspect it is a problem from the supplier

E120 won't print. Orange toner light is on - but the toner is nearly new ...

This problem is caused by an imitated toner............ All you need to do is change it to the old cartridge and see if the light will not be stable. Well the solution i guess is simple............. just go to get a new original toner and it should work well. Hope this helps.
