Laserjet 4 Faint Printing

My HP LaserJet 4 Plus issue is:

1. Printer just started printing very faint text/images. However,
2. Printer DOES print the test page just fine - with dark text
3. The Cartridge is not the issue.

Any help fixing this will be very much appreciated.
Obviously, it's not a cartridge issue. Just as obvious would be the fact that it's not a printer issue either. It can't take an image that is sent to it and lighten it up. I would guess it's some sort of software or driver problem. I've never seen it in all the thousands of 4 series I've worked on. Do you have another computer you can plug it into to test it with?

Yes and thanks. I deleted the printer from the computer and re-installed it with a fresh copy of the driver. That fixed the problem.
