    None of the above seems to give a permanent fix to the fading black print. Anyway I m happy to print lightly in black and white for most prints as it saves on toner.

    The transfer roller can still pop out and we include instructions with our printers for re-installing the transfer roller if that occurs. Color LaserJets are a bit trickier to troubleshoot in regards to light print than black and white printers.
