Samsung ML-2851N prints blank pages randomly

Problem: Blank pages instead of documents started to appear after changing it's toner

The same documents print ok a few times and then randomly it prints as blank page(s).

Problem was resolved by replacing the toner from the same type of printer.
And furthermore, the toner worked OK on that other printer.
Reinstaling drivers from Samsung official download didn't help, neither restarting PC nor printer.
All toners are original Samsung toners.
