I tried to print a couple of hundred pages of text in a PDF document. After about 25 pages my printer started printing faintly in the middle of the sheet. The last two pages it printed before I cancelled the job have a 3.5 inch strip of very faint (almost missing) text in the middle. I thought it was low on toner but after 5-10 minutes I tried printing a test page and it came out with bo problem. After that I tried to print one of the pages that came out wrong and it printed it perfectly. It is second-hand, so I'm not sure how well kept it has been. Can the problem be something other than low toner?

Re: My printer won't print multiple pages
The Toner is running low.
What is happening is you are low on toner in the MIDDLE of the Cartiridge.
Take the cartridge out and jently shake it left to right (be careful you dont make a mess)
this will distribute the toner evenly.
time to buy a spare as this wont last much longer.

Doesn't sound like your printer hardware. Try printing something other than your text document. If the page comes out clean/perfect then it means your printer is having a problem understanding your text document via print program translation. Otherwise try converting your text to pdf and print a sample page, if it works then again problem with software/printer translation.
Unfortunately, as with the Z1420, fast print speeds come at the cost of print quality with the Z1300. Black text prints, though nicely dark, were beset by obvious jaggedness. The color graphics print had a slightly faded look to it and color blocks showed graininess and faint horizontal striations. Barcode-style patterns were muddled, too. For our tests, we printed color 4x6 photos with the standard black and tricolor cartridges, as Lexmark did not include photo ink tanks with the test unit. The colors were dull, details were hazy, and again, the entire print was marred by graininess and faint horizontal lines. That said, nobody buys a $25 printer to print photos for framing or to create displays for a classroom science project. A $25 printer is a convenience item for occasional reference prints, and as such, the Z1300 does its job.
it's not a pritner problem. u need to chek word font's and font's colour setting but it's depand witch version u used and if every print are printed on faint grey colour yr refill cartige has a problem.. also do one thing go to pritnter setting do as grayscale. if u have any quary tell me..
This usually happens when your printer cartridge is almost empty. (Especially in inkjet printers) But to be sure, you can try to print a couple of pages with notepad, if the problem continues, you can try to clean the printer cartridge (Most of the printers has this function installed, you can go to the Control Panel -> Printers -> Right Click your printer -> Properties -> Maintenance or so), If the problem continues, you can try a new cartridge. But if the problem is with the Microsoft Word, the Microsoft Word itself can be reinstalled or a new updated printer driver can be searched online for correcting this problem.
