Phaser 6500 printing faded black in a 2" vertical area
Another of our 7 phaser 6500's is having print quality issues. This one has a two inch vertical area in which the black is faded. Either side of this vertical area prints fine. I have tried different Imaging Units, cleaned the laser lens, new toner cartridges (Genuine Xerox) and the print always come out the same. The printer is 17 months old with 15k pages.
Not sure if that will work, but definitely worth a shot. Typically with bands I would blame the imaging unit, but you have already got past that step. If the fuser was at issue any color would be banded in that area.
