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.

Uneven printing faded on right have checked green levers they are ok


Could do with a bit more information is it an all colours or just one colour. It might be the fuser which is the heat rollers at the top of the printer if you open side door and lift paper guide to reveal the rollers and check the left side of the rollers for any damage or wearing. you can print of a config sheet in the menu that will tell you the percentage of life left on the consumables (toners, transfer belt, drums and fuser) hope this helps.

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.

Oki 5150 color are not print right


You need to replace the magenta drum. Just because there is life left; it's possible it is scratched. Also, take a cotton ball dip in alcohol and wipe the LED's off when the cover is open; those black things that are hanging down from the cover. Also, make sure your drums are installed in the proper spots (magenta in magenta slot). If the toner "rubs off" after it prints... then the fuser is defective.

Faint area down left side of page


When you say "Cleaned the lens" I presume you mean the four LED print heads. Use a spirit to clean them with if the toner dust is hard to remove. I usually just use a finger and wipe the entire length. Make sure there is no foreign item laying on the drum top where the black plastic film is as the led head may not seat properly on it. Clean all the silver high voltage springs down the left side of the printer. They make contact with the drums. If you still have a problem then try printing solid colour blocks ie Yellow, Magenta ,Cyan and Black . This will identify which colour is giving the problem . Change that drum and all should be well.

Pring quality on Samsung CLP-300 colour laser


If you the image is faded and your toner supply is good, the problem is the developer blades in the imaging unit. During the normal use of the printer, there is a buildup of toner that sticks on the developer blade. The developer blade meters the amount of toner that gets to the drum that ultimately makes it to the paper. As the toner buildup increases on the blade, less and less toner that gets to the drum cause the image to fade.

To fix this problem you will need to disassemble the imaging unit and clean the blades or buy a new imaging unit. I have clean my blades and I don't have 20000 images it is about 7000 and I have a document to show you if you are handy.

Dell 5100cn printer


The only effect that the "non Dell toner" setting has is to raise the fuser temperature to the maximum. Since all toners are made up of ink and plastic, the fuser is what melts the fine plastic to the paper.

Dell toner is designed to melt at a lower temperature, however, since the non dell toners temperature value is unknow, this setting allows for that unknown.

In any case, neither of these things will cause lite, or faded print. In Fact, the toner cartridge for this model is actually nothing more then a toner storage device. Some cartridges contain the toner, the developer, and the drum. On the 5100 and the 5110 this is not the case.

The photo developers are located behind the imaging drum. you can see the 4 seperate developers, in the developer frame, when you remove the drum unit.

More then likely, if only the black is printing poorly, and the colors are printing ok, then the black photo developer is defective. This is a very messy job if you do not know what you are doing, and very involved.

You need to remove the top cover, the left side cover, the high voltage power supply, the supply tubes ( where the toner travels from the actual toner cartridges down to the developers ). Then once the tubes are removed, you have to remove the developer frame from the printer. Then you can get to the actual photo developer.

Good luck.
