change the toner

While the printer is in EconoMode, the printer uses less toner on each page. Selecting this option will extend
the life of the print cartridge and reduce your cost per page, but it will reduce print quality. See Using EconoMode in your manual

Per the Service Manual one of the first things to do is to replace the Toner Cartridge however it is recommended:
"Before installing a new cartridge or when toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times."

What the above will do is redistribute any remaining toner in the cartridge and the print quality should improve for a few pages.  This process can be done several times with positive results.  If this works you know the toner is low and a New Cartridge will resolve you problems.

Hope this Helps!!!

95% of the time you will find that if redistribution does not help then replace the toner cartridge.  On the rare occations though, you might find that it could be the transfer roller/belt not doing it's job properly, but I would definatly go for a new toner and you should find that it rectifies your problem straight away.

Faded? You mean while printing some portion is not getting printed or the complete characters are faded away?

These problems are not only due to the faulty toner, It might happen due to the FUSER UNIT malfunctioning

You might want to try printing a page and let it go partially under the toner cartridge - yet before it enters the fuser - then check the print quality. (half page test)  While the toner will smear, what you are looking for are the blemishes you have seen on other pages as described above.
 
1.  If the issues are seen then your problem is with the Toner Cartridge.
2.  If the issues are not seen then your problem is with the Fuser.

Hope this Helps!!!

Light print or faded

● The toner supply is low. See Redistributing toner for more
information.
● The media might not meet Hewlett-Packard’s media
specifications (for example, the media is too moist or too rough).
See Printer media specifications for more information.
● If the whole page is light, the print density adjustment is too light
or EconoMode might be turned on. Adjust the print density and
disable EconoMode in the printer properties.

Vertical repetitive defects

● The print cartridge might be damaged. If a repetitive mark
occurs at the same spot on the page, install a new HP print
cartridge. See Changing the print cartridge for instructions.
● The internal parts might have toner on them. See Cleaning the
printer for more information. If the defects occur on the back of
the page, the problem will probably correct itself after a few
more printed pages.
● In your printer driver, make sure the appropriate media type is
selected.
