The cause of this fading is due to a build up of toner on the developer blades. If it looks like this with streaking vertical fading.
Black print is fading on one side of the - slamfix_46.jpg The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer.

Faded print on right side of page. When I copy/print in black, why is the black print faded on the right side of the paper?


Your toner cartridge may be the culprit.
Take the cartridge out and shake sideways and up/down. Reinstall it and try again.
If it's still printing faded side, replace the cartridge.

C935 PS3 colours work, but the black fades gradually down the page. No errors on printer, toner at 50%


sounds like you have an air leak into the ink supply system, specifically on the Black ink drive.

OKIC5450 . in portrait Left side fades off (about 2") in all colours but worse in black. All drums over 50%, Fuser 100%, All toners at least 39% belt 22% colour page count 38000


When you touch the faded side with your hand after the paper comes out of the printer, does the toner come off on your hand? If so, it's the fuser. If not, it's probably the transfer belt.

I have fading on the right hand side. Printer Dell 3100CN


Dell printers are junk. But you have put a lot of money into this thing. Check the alignment of the black drum, could be that something is keeping if off track a little bit.

HP3600N color fade


It is using the colours to make the grey and the proportion is not correct. Do a calibration.
