when you replaced the maintenance kit - did you replace the Fuser assembly as well - as this faultr is down to the pressure off the fuser roller to fix the image also there are two blue tabs that set the fuser unit to letter mode(less Pressure) these can be accessed without removing the fuser and are accessible from the left door. ensure the levers are set to paper and not letter. if the fuser is still not fixing the image correctly then a new fuser unit assembly is required as fuser units are non servicable.
if you printing is just faint, need to replace toner, but if your printing is faint and blurry, need to add grease to the fuser film roller, need advanced skills for that, disassemble the fuser unit take out the fuser film and put some special high temp grease on the heating element, assembly all back and install, the other way is replacing the fuser unit
Do you mean blurry, like toner isn baked, or ... If yes, dispite the good conditions of fixing roller, you may want to replace bushings of fixing rollers too. Because they do not generate enough pressure.
Most cases on that machine it's the transfer roller that does that at 75mm, but could also be drum cartridge or fuser. Use a flashlight and inspect the fuser, shouldn't be toner or image on fuser rollers, If you unplug the machine when the print is in the middle, you can tell if it's before or after the fuser, and after the drum.
It might be the fuser that is defect. perform a half paper path test. Let the paper get pulled in for half of it's length and open the cartridge door so printer stops, check the paper and see if issue is on the out print before passing the fuser. Also check that you have the power cord directly to wall socket and not using an extension cable that may reduce the current to the printer. Another tip can be to change paper type in the printing preferences to a heavier type ex. card stock wich have the printer to work slower.
There are 3 little black and white rollers under the cover on the back of the printer. They are pushed under the upper rollers. They should be on the outside of the upper rollers. Somehow they got wedged under the upper rollers. This should fix the accordian paper jam.
