You need to replace the drum unit of the cartridge and i believe that the part life had ended. you can view this on the LCD monitor of the printer. Go to menu and choose LAN setting. Choose machine parts and check the drum unit is it says life ended. You need to replace that drum unit.
Another way for temporary purposes, set your print quality setting to PHOTO setting. It will print darker than before but not on taking photocopy.
When you print photos, in Preferences you have to set up the quality of the print to either Best or Photo whichever is the highest one in the list. Hopefully this will increase the quality of the printing, although this is not a photo printer. And you are correct, it's a printer problem.
Epson's RX620 scans and prints photos at high quality. Text, however, was slow to print and not that good.
multifunction devices fall into two categories: general-purpose models
that are designed for home or small office use, and photo-oriented
devices such as this, aimed more at the enthusiastic amateur snapper.
Because it's a photography-centred device, the RX620 uses dye inks.
On photo paper, these produce more vibrant colours than pigment-based
inks, and a true gloss finish, but on plain paper produce inferior,
less vivid results.
The Stylus Photo RX620 is quite large, and looks dated - but it's
not short of modern photo-printing features. Its built-in memory card
reader is compatible with seven commonly used digital memory formats,
including xD and SmartMedia. Photographers using film will appreciate
the scanner, with its high optical resolution and transparency
On plain paper the RX620's text printing showed bandingand rough outlines on default settings. Our five-page
black-and-white text document took two and a half minutes to print.
Increasing quality settings made it even slower.
We tried realigning the print heads to improve print quality. The
RX620's manual process involves choosing the best-aligned examples from
four rows of 15 patterns. This takes good eyesight, and it can be hard
to choose between similar-looking options. We needn't have bothered -
text remained unchanged.
Photo printing was far better. The RX620 produced some of the best
prints we've seen from a multifunction device, but only at its highest
quality - and slow - setting. Our A4 test picture took 15 minutes 12
seconds to appear.
The RX620's scanner is excellent, previewing an A4 sheet in six
seconds and scanning a 6x4in photo at 600 dots per inch (dpi) in just
14.5 seconds. Negative scan times were reasonable, with a single frame
scanned at 2,400dpi in 1 minute 40 seconds.
The RX620 can perform many advanced functions without being attached
to a computer, and its colour screen has a clear menu system. Prints
can be made directly from memory cards, photo prints or even film.
There are four document copying settings, but results using the default
Text quality are adequate for most office purposes.
The RX620 isn't a brilliant multifunction device. It does many
things well, but its printer is too slow, and simply not good enough on
Please rate my solution after reading it. Thank you
your laser printer
1) print color quality is now distorted that means print skew (technician called)
2) print tint means the print color not enough density,
3) print mottle means print dirty
you may try
1) print distorted--- find out the skew adjustment from your printer manu, it is adjust the image before transfer to the drum.
2) print skew could be happened when the drum replace install not very accurate, so install it more carefully.
3) print tint---you may increase print density from the manu, not fix,
4) print tint---the toner caridge near life cycle or using the less compatible toner. so you have change the quality toner or cartridge (if near life cycle) to improve quality photo print
5）print mottle---toner quality ? or cartridge near life cycle also cause print dirty paper,
there are 3 reason if the copy gray & less sharp:
1) the toner you are using is not compatible very well with the cartridge unit if you changed other compatible toner.
2) the cartridge going near the life-cycle, (also cause print blurred)
3) the photo drum going near the life-cycle
you may try to change the quality toner (original factory). or
change the cartridge if it is out of the life-cycle
I used to use an LX300 and have never had this problem. I'm not sure what unclear means so I will just do some guessing. Clarity of the print depends on 3 things, software, printhead and ribbon. These are your problem areas. Epson has an option to print NLQ or near letter quality. So that should give more clarify. I basically double prints the same letter to create a darker image. The printhead, if your printer is really old, you need to either find someone to refurbish the printhead or buy a new printhead because it could be the impact pins are bent and not giving the strongest image. Lastly the ribbon, obvsiously the more used the ribbon is the weaker the image. So either re-ink the ribbon or buy a new ribbon cartridge. Hope this helps.
