HP 2100 Laserjet printing with shadows

We have an old 2100 printer that have started to print with a "shadow" around the text. we changed the toner cardtridge but it still doing the same. any sugestions?
Probably the fuser needs to be replaced. To confirm perform a half test. Place a sheet of paper on the manual front fold down tray and press the green button for a self test. When the back edge of the paper enters the printer, quickly open the top cover to stop the printer. Remove the toner and look at the image on the paper below. If the defect is present it is still the toner cartridge. If the image is ok, then the fuser needs to be replaced. Keep in mind the toner will move on the page since it has not been fused.
