Here are the most common causes of a printer printing faded text or images: Low ink or toner levels. Toner sticking to the fuser roller or problems with the transfer roller. Low ink or toner density settings.
As fast as 6.6 sec 2 ( 3 Measured using ISO/IEC 17629.
When Delay When Ports Are Active option is selected, the printer will not shut down unless all ports are inactive. An active network link or USB connection will prevent the printer from shutting down.
Check the toner darkness settings.

Sometimes light print can be remedied by simply changing the toner darkness setting in the printer. To change the setting, go to MENU>>SETTINGS>>QUALITY MENU>>TONER DARKNESS. Increase the darkness and send a test print to see if that fixes the issue.

The most common reason for getting faded prints is having empty or defective toner cartridges. It is unbelievably frequent that people forget to replace their empty toner cartridges and struggle to figure out why their printers print faintly. Another common reason is that people use defective cartridges.
You can make prints lighter or darker by adjusting the print density setting in the printer driver`s dialog box or the RJ Utility. -5 is the lightest, and +5 is the darkest.
Laser printers can print much faster than inkjet printers can. Most are equipped with high-capacity paper trays, so they can print more pages at a given time. They`re also built to handle the printing of thousands of pages per month without succumbing to wear-and-tear.
Laser printer is known to be the fastest printer.
These are some of the common reasons, (too many programs running at once, running out of disk space, software issues, virus/malware occurs, hardware issues, overheating burning your laptop, faulty or outdated data and improper using behavior).
Adjust the application settings and the printer settings to the highest possible resolution. Both of these features can typically be accessed from the “Print” menu. Dpi settings can range between 72 dpi and 2400 dpi. Choose the highest dpi setting available for best results when using a laser printer.
If your printer is positioned far away from the network device, it may print more slowly. Especially wireless printing or if connected to an old fashioned `hub`. Speed things up by moving your printer closer to the router/switch/etc., or plug it directly into your primary switching.
Reasons why your HP printer has ink but won`t print

This may seem obvious, but it sometimes happens: first make sure your paper tray has paper in it. Misalignment, clogged printheads, faulty data communication or insufficient ink levels can also be sources of the problem.

Printer Faults – Faded One Side of a Print. Fading at a margin generally suggests: an imbalance of the toner, all of it is unshiftably at one side of a cartridge. The toner agitators or stirrers should move the problem but don`t invariably succeed.
The Edge light bar glows white in the center when the printer is idle and not connected to a network.

What repair needs to be done for a "50 needs repair" message on an HP Laserjet IIIP?
ANSWER : I don’t know what you mean by good toner cartridges. They haven’t been built in about 10 years, so if they are new OEMs in the box, they are guaranteed to fail. The 50 error on that printer is mostly a burned out fuser lamp. This site was sold, so as you can see, there are no more kits available.
