    I have the same problem on heavier stock, maybe the last inch or so the toner fades away, when xerox was here for another problem they said that when the sheet is fed thru the trailing edge lifts and causes this, no real fix.

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.

* If your are printing color photos on a Glossy paper you must chose the paper type from Media Type in the Printing Properties while giving Print command.

Dell 2135 fading left side when printing

It's possible that this could also be down to a toner cartridge inside the printer. I would recommend running off a copy of the colour laser test page found here.

The colour bars towards the bottom of the page separate cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Hopefully you will be able to notice that one colour is affected more than the others and replacing that colour may help.

Apologies if you have tried anything similar previously.

Wont print out accurate color when printing a Greyscale photo

Hi, I recommend doing a nozzle check first to ensure all the colours are printing fine.
Within the advanced option of the printer driver you have an option to select greyscale, it might be worth enabling this feature.
If you are using glossy media the problem might be down to the ink reaction with the glossy resin as this can cause casting or bronzing. To check this try printing on matt paper.
If you are printing from Photoshop check your colour matching settings, the easiest way to do this without messing to much is try printing from another application, I would recommend Epson's own, Easy Photo Print.

Cannon MP600 will not print accurate photo colours

First clean and align the printer correctly.

You will need to ensure that you have selected Photo Glossy Paper for best results. You will also need to adjust the gamma settings and also play with the colour saturation controls to achieve a good colour balance that you are happy with.

Try printing a basic colour additive chart and comparing screen against printout and adjusting settings as required.

Also have a look at myPANTONE colour splash to get the definitive Pantone Colour Mixes at

or use a paint tool or PhotoShop etc to create solid colour blocks of basic colour to compare against.

Faded-out streak

check your ink levels. if its the ink that came with the printer it is probable running out of ink. they do not give a full cartridge with printers, only about 3rd full. also try cleaning the heads. and try changing your printer settings/prefrences to less ink, more drytime see if that helps.
