First thing to try is this, please go to control panel on the printer and to aministration menu. Scroll down to troubleshooting and find the PQ troubleshooting option and press ok. This will print a series of test prints. If these prints look OK then likely you have an issue with your driver. If they are faded, the second thing you need to do is check to make sure that your firmware revision is current. On the config page that prints with the pages just printed above, look on the upper left for firmware revision. Current version is 46.300.0. Download from here and install following the instruction in the readme file. Did it print OK before changing cartridges? If you installed remanufactured or 3rd party cartridges, the toner will not always provide the same quality of print.

Why is my printer printing faded colours


Hi Kath,
I expect you have it sorted by now.
I think you might have had one off the developer tanks stuck or broken. If the developer roller does not turn then the colour quickly fades along the page. If you tried to do a test page and that was good then there was nothing wrong with that side of things.
Good luck.

My CP1515n colour laser is giving faded colours.The left side of the print is very faded whereas the rest of the print is slightly faded


There are two reasons for faded prints. Firstly, faded print could be due to exhausting toner.
If it you have faded prints even after replacing the toner cartridge or if your current cartridge has enough toner, it is most likely be due to dust/ toner dust accumulated at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printers,
which partially blocks laser beams and requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.
Hence, it is recommended that you get the printer checked/ serviced from authorized service center.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Colours not printing correctly


Hey!

Only thing i can think of is that the transferbelt(on the door)is faulty as that transfers the toner from the drum to the page!You should look at it and if its all most faded and not shiny then just replace it!!

Good Luck!

Colours are faded despite all toners at 25% or


If there is black "dust" all over the developer (behind the image drum assembly ) you need to replace the developer; that is uncoated toner prevenitng transference of colored toner.

Print keeps fading, even though using new ink


check your printer settings, make sure color only is not checked off, or if you mainly print black and white documents, you should have that option checked, you may have to go into advance printer options to do this.

Print quality: dark faded, but continuous


Open top cover and remove toner, shake toner cartridge and try a test print. IF image good then problem is low toner level in cartridge.

This printer has stopped printing reds and oranges correctly ? they are faded. Changed the toners & no difference


Print a "Config Report" from the printers menu...If u notice that the fourth square on the left side (fourth being the bottom square) for Magenta (reds and orange) is missing or very faded, this could indicate that the optical mirrors inside the printer have to be cleaned...Design flaw. ESP..if changing toners doesn't work and your your faded issue is with Magenta (Pink, red, or orange) colours are the only faded ones...With this design flaw in the optical mirrors, magenta mirror is the first to be affected!
Hope this helps!!!! I work in the industry :)

Black toner


I had the problems with white smear type fading on one side of the page , when pritning black, but colour printing seems OK. Did everything suggested in the manual and more. Changed toner. Been working on it a week.  (I got 2000 pages out of that thing). 
Now I have the solution. Bin the Samsung and buy a Canon.
