Toner will help it print, but it also needs a new drum to removes the
unique streaks it adds to every page.

Also try removing the toner cartridge and gently turning it like a
see-saw to redistribute the remaining toner.  I can usually get
another couple hundred pages this way from a dying cartridge.
