Which monono laser printer suits for extra dark printing on butter paper i tried almost. Pl guide

Dear Rajendra
You can choose any laser printer with printing resolution 600-1200 dpi. According to the type of toner non-magnetic toner will perform the best and lasts long without deterioration of its color. Before buying the choosed model you may download the driver and verify the setting procedures to confirm. Also if you are going for prepare for master the driver setting should have option for lower the dpi up to 300 , in case of screen print application. Few manfs are hp,canon used magnetic toner where as samsung,brother,konica minolata etc. are used non-magnetic toner on their low/ middle segment.

Samsung 1915 printer: the red light with the double artrows and the exclamation in a triangle is flashing. What's up? John

1. A minor error has occurred and the machine is waiting for the error to be cleared. When the problem is cleared, the machine resumes.
