HP LJ 4 fading print intensity

We are getting printouts where the left half of the page is much lighter than the right side. It is a graduated change (fades to the left). We have swapped toner cartridges that are working fine in other printers, and still have the same problem.

What can cause this?
It's probably dirty optics in the scanner assy. You'll have to take the top of the printer off. Remove the scanner assy. Take the top cover off and clean all the glass and mirrors inside with a dry cue tip.

Ditto on that one.
