Imageclass D1350 laserjet printer problem

I have recently gotten this hand me down printer. it works fine but the prints turn out with a bunch of gray around the text. like its printing a little allover the page. Any idea what could cause this ? i have just put a new toner cartridge in and it didnt fix the problem.  Thanks
