We use the receipt printer referenced in the title and a couple of them started having an issue where the first few characters on the left-hand side are faint. I would describe it how a laser printout looks when it's low on toner. Looked up the manual - says to clean the print head. Did that, same problem. Any thoughts?

The print process is thermal (heat) so then it make sense that the print head is failing. Cleaning will not help that and I doubt it can be repaired except by replacing the print head.

So you need to get the printer serviced, and depending on the cost to service, it may make sense to get a new printer.
