If the Toner Cartridges are OK, the faint image is certainly due to the dust/ toner dust on the optics inside the printer, which reflect the lase beam forming image on the drum. The lase beam gets partially blocked due to dust and as a result the image is faint. There are mainly two parts responsible. (1) The mirrors (s) lenses.
So, it is recommended that you carefully clean the optics of the printer (lenses & mirrors) from front as well as back and edges of the rotating mirrors (if present). You may use cotton swab or a very soft, lint free cloth for cleaning. Apply some glass cleaning liquid (only) if it is required. Hope you would be able to fix it.


Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Oki b410d printer has a new toner cartridge however it is still printing inconsistently on the page?


Open the lid. Mounted under the lid you should see a horizontal bar which is actually the laser [LED]. Once your toner cart has emitted, enough loose toner has accumulated on the laser that it can no longer draw on the page correctly. Using something soft and barely dampened with water [use a soft cotton cloth, NO PAPER PRODUCTS, no dirty rags, etc] and wipe gently from L to R to remove the loose toner. Turn to a clean section of the cloth and do it once more. GENTLY! No pressure, do not scrub it, or you can damage the laser. Close the lid and print something. You should be back to good now.

If you are familiar with the process of printer repair etc, you can do it yourself. Otherwise, the printer requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.

Ink on left hand side of page very faint


Hi,
First make sure that the print cartridge has enough toner. If the toner is OK, it is most likely be due to dust/ toner dust accumulation at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printer, which partially blocks laser beams and results in faint print. Therefore the printer requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.


Hope it helps! Good Luck!

There is a faint background shadow covering the


remove toner/drum unit from the printer. remove toner from drum unit and shake toner cart. side-side to loosen toner inside. On top front of the drum unit there is a purple/blue button that will slide right-left. Do this a few times to clean the wire. If there's a lot of loose toner, take a vacuum and clean carefully. Put everything back inside. With front door still open, hold GO/Control button down until all lights have lit, then let go, close front cover.

If you still have the shadow over the page, it's most likely the toner cart and you need to buy a new one (or recond.-refill) at someplace like Office Depot or Staples.

Our Laser printer doesn't print on the left had side of the paper--well, very faint--the right side is just fine. I just replaced the cartridge. What is the problem?


If your printer prints like this:
657b300.jpg with the any color printing faintly down the page, then the problem is with the developer blades in the imaging unit. What happens is there are metal blades that meter the amount of toner that gets put on to the drum that makes the image on the paper. The toner is made up of fine particules of plastic. As the printer prints, some of this toner collects on the edge of the developer blades causing less and less toner to make it onto the page making the print look faint.

To correct this problem, you either need to buy a new imaging unit or clean the developer blades. There is a document on the internet that gives a detail instructions on how to do this, but, the link no longer works. I have a copy of this document, I will try to post it if people are interested.
