I just replaced the toner cartridges for the second time but still find my print (text) is grey instead of black and looks like it is suffering from double vision (or I am suffering from double vision) but the print looks like there are two letters, each slightly off from each other

1 of two things. You have a bad heat roll in the fuser. They will wear out the teflon and cause that problem. That is the very hot area in the exit area of the machine.
Also there s a machine made by Sharp but marketed by 3 or 4 vendors, Sharp, Toshiba, Xerox and some others, where the high voltage power supply will cause that problem.
Most likely the fuser needs replaced. That is the most likely problem. I mention the high voltage power supply because it is a possibility.

How do I clean spilled toner from the inside of a Kyocera mita copier?


Try using a small soft brush to brush it off while using a good hepa filter vacuum to remove the toner at the same time. Wear a good breathing mask to protect your lungs!

Print quality on Brother Intellifax 2840 fax/printer has changed from black to gray. I've tried different toner cartridges, but it doesn't help.


The online fax service allows you to choose the quality or your outbound faxes: black and white thresholding (with improved readability) or grey and colors dithering (to render grey zones of pictures and logos).

Printing black on paper


Some of these machines will allow you to printe a grey scale test copy.
This will readjust the fax machine back to a nominal mode.
Not knowing how old or how long the machine has been serviced, background can be caused by dirty optics somewhere in the machine.
A remanufactured drum unit can cause this type of problem, (defective unit)
Competitive toner in the toner unit can cause poor copy quality.
Reinstall the old cartrige and see if the problem changes.
Not knowing if the machine has a seperate drum unit and developer housing, it would be hard to answer anything else.

Printed pages look terrible...


I'm more familiar with HP printers, but it sounds like a fuser is bad. The fuser effects print quality as well. If you've replaced the toner, as you have.

There is a menu prompt that allows you to choose to print in black only.

Printing Black Page


It sounds like you have lost the ground connection to the drum or housing.
I would suspect if you remove the cartridges and look carefully for the contacts on the cartridges and in the machine you will find either a dirty contact, a spring off, or it is possible a coincidence that one cartrigde failed.
Printing black is caused normally by a loss of ground contact or a high voltage arc.
Check the contacts and make sure everything is seated properly, and replace a cartridge

Large grey streak down center of page


It is the fuser at rear giving you grief! The upper heat roller has a teflon coating that wears away allowing toner to stick to roller and smudgin prints as they pass threw it. The fix is to replace fuser assembly, take to brother dealer to fix.

You can prove it to yourself by timing the print to stop mid way threw machine then remove print cartridge and look at paper, you should see a image is good untill it hits the fuser,( pre fused image "rubs off" paper.) If you have changed drum and toner thats all it can be. They all do it in time.

Fuser is hot bit at rear, pull out drum and look in the back with a small torch you will see upper heat roller is worn, guestimation $90 for fuser plus labour to fit.
