The print heads may be clogged. Enter the maintenance menu and run the cleaning cycle. If the problem persists you may need to manually clean the nozzles with a Q-Tip and Rubbing Alcohol (Ethyl Alcohol).

How to troubleshoot the faded printout problem in laser printers?


This is due to this reason:-- A faded print image is normally the result of one of three conditions: The printer is getting low on toner, the print density is set too low, or Econo mode printing is turned on. For the last two settings, a printer self-test (typically a separate button on the printer) will show what the current settings are. If Econo mode is on, and users are complaining about how light the print is, turn it off and/or set the print density higher. If the toner is low, simply removing the cartridge and shaking it to redistribute the toner more evenly can temporarily resolve the problem until you can replace the cartridge. This will help. good luck.

What causes a white streak and faded print to appear on copies?


Most often on the PC940 this means your toner cartridge is getting low on toner. To prove this is the cause, just remove the toner cartridge and while keeping it relatively level, shake it side to side a few times. This will re-distribute the remaining toner in the cartridge. Re-install and make a copy. The black streak/faded copy should be much better. If so then I would go ahead and get a new cartridge on the way.

Faded copies


This is usually caused when the toner cartridges are low on toner, or the drum unit needs to be replaced. Try to produce a supplies status page and see what it tells you.

Faded prints about 2" in from the margin


Greetings!

{You used the term "drum". This may indicate a roll type of toner rather than a cartridge style of toner. The following tip is for a cartridge style.}

I get much the same symptom when my HP laser cartridge is running low, and no, it doesn't have a "low toner" indicator either. I get by a little longer with mine, long enough to get out and buy a new one that is, by removing it, holding it over a garbage can at an angle and firmly tapping on it to loosen any compacted toner. I then turn it back horizontally and gently shake it back and forth to evenly distribute the remaining toner through the cartridge and reinsert it into the printer. This usually gets me nice, even prints back and extends the life of the cartridge. I can usually get a few extra weeks out of it by doing this two or three times.

Good luck!

Check the toner in your printer, It is either low or uneven in the cartridge. Remove the cartridge and gently rock it back and forward. Replace it and check toner levels. You can print a page with this on it fron the menu on the front of the printer.
