"Shaded" Print

Hello guys, i am having some trouble with my Xerox Phaser 6000. The print is "shaded", i'll be uploading an image.

 

This happens since i first got my unit from a friend, it was a used machine, not sure how much time of usage, but it didn't happen so frequently and this is starting to bother me, because i need a high quality print for some college stuff and i'm not getting it.

 

Any idea what is happening? Any place to start looking for the problem ?

Re: "Shaded" Print

I honestly can't tell from your images what is being shaded, are you sure you are not talking about ghosting? (Image duplicated and offset of where it should be as highlighted here in your shot)

The link there is a start to diagnosing, if it is one color, try cleaning that colors LED window.

Re: "Shaded" Print

It's me again. I read the article you sent me and decided to change my toner cartridge, i bought from another vendor and started running some tests and i'm pretty happy with the results.

 

I printed 200 pages without even one getting "ghosted". I think it's the cartridge. I'll keep printing and see if the problem returns.

 

 

This is the toner cartridge i am using now.

Prints are very good.

The only problem that i detected was that after printing a long document, like 30 pages, when i try to print again, the first page gets this messy toner splash. But still, really good.

My english is not very good, but what is the DRUM UNIT that article cites ?

Re: "Shaded" Print

A drum unit is what sets the image on the paper, typically there is one per color used, they are not replaceable on your model or they are integrated in the toner, I don't know which is the case.
