Toner issue getting to drum - use gen toner cart.
or Drum blade stuffed (lines are down page fro top to bottom- replace drum assy
Drum has been exposed to light faint or blank across copies repeated 4 times down page - replace drum assy
or upper fuser roller stuffed, down page, smudgy print - replace fuser
LSU(laser) or boards rarely cause issues

Re Replace toner message.
Do an information print (MENU, ENTER, ENTER)
This will tell you the pagecount of the various units of the printer
Imaging Unit (Drum)
Transfer Belt (ITB)
The counter for the Cyan toner will simlpy indicate that this is near, at, or over the 'capacity' for this cartridge.
1.5k colour and 2k black 'starter' cartridges
2k colour and 3k black 'standard' cartridges
5k colour and 7k black 'high capacity' cartridges.
NOTE even if you only have a single dot of (say) cyan on a page, the counter for that colour will be increased by 1 when that page is printed. 'Empty' cartridges are often far from empty in reality, ans there is no toner sensor, just the counter, which is reset when you install a new cartridge.
The missing print on one side of the reverse side of duplex printed pages is quie a puzzle, as the duplexer simply turns the paper over and presents it to the transferbelt and transfer roller for the second side.
Check the transfer roller is in place properly (open the duplex door - black foam roller A4 width with purple plastic tab on one end black on the other).
Is the duplex door fitted correctly, does it close correctly ?

- Try to reallign the cartridge, run a print test, after that if the issue still persist - uninstall and reinstall software - run test and re-allign again the cardtridge using software. run print test again.

This is a very common problem with Samsung CLX-3160 and CLP-300 printers. The real problem is that the developer blades get dirty with the toner. Buying a new imaging unit will only fix the problem for a short period of time then it starts to get buildup on the developer blades.
You need to clean the developer blades. If there are streaking on any color, then also needs to be cleaned.
To clean the developer blades, look to this link. https://losingambition.com/clp300imagefix/ It describes how to clean them. It only takes a few minutes to do once you get the developers out of the unit. Just be careful when you clean the edge of the blades. You need to make sure that the residue is completely removed from the edge. Also be sure that when you reinstall the blade that the little foam does not get trapped below the blade. Otherwise when you print the side where the blade is not properly installed will have too much color.
If you are afraid of messing your printer up, then you need to buy a new imaging unit. They go around $100.

Have you reset the ink levels for your printer? Some printer software refers to it as that others ask if you have installed a new cartridge.
Do maintenance on the printer, such as clean heads, print test page, head alingment, etc and see if that fixes it. You can get to all these options through properties
