This usually happens when the toner is running low. Try removing the toner cartridge and shake it in a horizontal position and insert it back in the printer. This may give you a few more printed pages before you have to get a new toner cartridge.
The printer has no way of knnowing that you have changed the Photoconductor Unit, unless you tell it (as there is not chip on the Photoconductor).
The Photconductor reset procedure is as follows.

remaining toner, and then reinsert it and continue printing. Repeat this procedure multiple times until
the print remains faded. When the print remains faded, replace the toner cartridge
