PLEASE HELP, 2 colors out of 4 are faded on edges
I know is an old printer but toner is very cheap I don't want a new one.
Currently Magenta and Yellow are printing with faded color on both edge of sheets, i've replaced genuine brand new toners with no luck, service manual recommends to clean the high voltage terminals (no luck), next move according to service manual is to replace DC controller and High voltage PCB, but they are expensive, any comments on this issue?.
Highly doubt either one is at fault. This was a common problem on the 2600 series. More likely cause would be dirty mirrors in the scanner assembly. Free fix, but it takes a bit of disassembly. Once you get the assemblies open, clean the rotating mirrors and the lenses with a dry cotton swab.
