HP Laserjet 4100 started printing light

I am wondering if anybody would have any suggestions. I have this printer and yesterday the printer started to print light printouts. I changed the toner cartridge and still light. I changed the toner cartridge with a known good toner cartridge and still light printouts. I have checked all configuration on the printer and am not sure what to do next. Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't seen this yet with a 4100, but on the 4000 I have here, I have had to replace the laser/scanner. You can try replacing the transfer roller first but in my cases it did not help.

Hi Steve Huff,
First after change toner with a known good condition toner no clue,
Try to clean service a Transfer Roller with dry wipe not touch my finguer.also clean a Laser/Scanner Mirror with dry wipe.
If these two action not resloved your problem. It might be cause problem from Laser/Scanner Unit Or Formatter Board itself Malfunction and need to replace.

Try to change each part One/One to eliminated which part cause this problem.

There are no short cuts to anything worth doing
