Why Does My Laser Printer Have Shadows?
A laser printer produces a shadow effect based on factors, such as a worn fusing assembly. An accumulation of toner on the fuser also can result in excess toner around the characters and graphics, generating shadows. Toner, dust or other sediments settling on the scanner assembly lens also can cause a shadow.
Disassemble the laser printer to locate and resolve the shadow issue. Any worn components should be replaced, and dirty elements wiped clean. If these actions do not restore printer function, then the laser printer may require replacement.
