Inside the toner unit, there is a stirring device to broadcast toner over full width of drum. I will guess this is the culprit, the stirring device is not turning. Try this test: remove the toner cartridge and shake it rapidly back and forth. Then try a print, any change?

Dell Color Laser 1320c printer. The left side of page prints lighter than rest of page - color faded or lighter

Hi,
I also had this problem with faded print down the left hand side. I decided to strip the printer down. I had to completely remove the laser imaging unit which meant removing all the covers and a couple of circuit boards. I then cleaned the lenses/mirrors inside the open front and laser head (behind a flap with laser warning sticker) with compressed air. This cured the problem but took a couple of hours. I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you are reasonable competent with electro mechanical devices.
Having seen the laser imaging unit out of the printer, it seems a real shame that it wasn't manufactured to be air/toner tight as this could have been achieved at a small cost.
I hope this is helpful ;)

Left side of page prints lighter than rest of page

You should contact Dell about returning these for a replacement, it sounds to me like a manufacturer's error.

Left side of page lighter than the rest, you can't hardly read it

It sounds like the develop blade on your imaging unit needs to be cleaned. If you either clean it or buy a new one. If you are interested in cleaning it yourself I can send you a document on how to do this.
