OKI C823 A3 Laser Printer Suddenly Printing Faded

May 26, 2023
The lines are so faint that its almost hard to see them without looking at close range.

Some of the lines are also missing segments and there is also some very faint ghosting on the page.

When i try to troubleshoot the problem in the manual the only thing it says is that the paper is no good but i have tried multiple different papers and I get the same problem.

I tried increasing the "Print Black Setting" to maximum (+2) but it didnt do anything. (Menu>Menus>Print Adjustment>Paper Black Settings)

Grateful if anyone has any wisdom they can share.

Also I am unable to find any setting for "Cleaning" the printer. Only calibration. Am i missing something?

From the manual....
