Good evening, I bought this printer five years ago, it has always worked well, but unfortunately lately I have problems with magenta toner, this color prints faded and even the red prints it orange.
I noticed that if I put my finger on the paper the color was not absorbed by the paper,
The problem is maybe the toner or the fuser?

If you can brush the toner away, it is the fuzer at fault.

with age and toner dust flying around I bet you have a light dusting on the main laser scanner (external) lens.  I have see this a lot on hp's where the red toner is closest to the scanner lens and contaminates it with a thin layer of red toner dust.  and then the red is always lighter then it should be.   you probably have the same issue and the laser scanner assembly just needs a good cleaning.

In the back of the printer on the drum, I found some sand-colored toner.
And I tried to remove it, but without solving it.

but to clean it I think a technician will have to do it, I'm not capable.
This printer has a single drum in the back.
so you have to disassemble the whole printer I think.

Hi, yesterday I have received the new toner cartridge and now the printer work as before.

The printing is clear and bright, very similar to genuine toner but without spend much.

I have buy this toner on amazon.uk for only £ 10 shipping included.

 

very thanks to all forumer for help.

Good day.

 

That's very good to know. I had an inkjet printer a lot of time ago and when I jumped wagon to laser technology I never looked back. I still have got a 20 years old HP Laserjet 1200 printer that is working fine albeit being slow.

 

Best regards.

Yes, but the printer that I have is led tecnology, the laser have more components and so more problem and parts that can replaced.

I also had several inkjet printers, but every time I had to print, I had to do the head cleaning with a waste of ink.
I will never go back.


Fortunately I solved with a new toner cartridge, in fact it seemed strange that the fuser was already fault, I only did 550 prints!
