My printer is not printing correctly.
The prints out are very faded to the point that I can not read it.
I have replaced the engaging Drum twice .
The fuser is 80% life remaining.
I have reset the nvram and the printer to defaults.

The problem with my printer is just the black toner.
I did a contamination test and every color is good except the black.

You mentioned you changed the drum, but did you also do the most obvious, change the Toner cartridge? It could just be empty.

Yes I changed the emaging drum. And toner are all full.
And genuine from dell.
To be honest I think is the controller card.

Does a printer initiated test or status page have the same result as a page printed via a PC?

Then I doubt there is much you can do yourself. I suggest you either get Dell to repair it, or have it replaced, as repairs usually cost more than a new printer.
