I would try cleaning the drum unit.
Take the drum unit out of the printer.
They recommend that you place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1. Carefully turn the drum unit upside down.
2. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tad from right to left several times. (Be careful with the corona wire they are delicate.)
3. Return the tab to the Home position before reinstalling the drum unit. (If you do not position the tab at the home position, printed pages may have vertical lines.)
4. Re-install the drum unit.
5. Close the top cover.
6. Plug in the power cord.


Hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Faded printing issues with Brother MFC-9320

Try cleaning the corona wire on each toner cartridge. This may help solve your solution.
If this does not help try another thing.
Try and replace the toner cartridge. Maybe your toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Usualy when printed images are light or pale a toner cartridge replacement is recommended.

My Brother mfc 4800 after changing the drum and toner prints so light that it is almost unusable

Return both and get a fresh batch. You could have gotten a bad drum or toner. But first take out the toner and get her a good shake just to loosen it up if there are any clumps or jams

Poor print quality from Brother MFC-8860DN

Replace the drum. The drum is failing.
When you replace the drum open the front door of the machine where thr drum and toner is.
Hit the clear/back button. Press 1
That resets the drum count after you replaced the unit.

Poor print quality like toner low, but toner quanity is fine.

this sounds to me like it could possibly be stemming from the fuser, this is quite common on fuser that use a thin film belt for the heat roller...

Changing Drum

The drum is where the image is applied before being transfer to the paper. If the drum is wearing down the image will become poor. Changing the drum unit will make the image like new. So, yes you can run the drum catridge until you get a poor print out.
