Question about HP Printers & Copiers

Printing from online comes out very light

Printing a copy from the printer itself is fine - clear and dark.

Printing something from online (ie. an e-mail message) comes out
very light and hard to read.

Thanks for your help.

Typically, the quality of images and text on websites is very low resolution to keep the file size down in order for them to load more quickly on your screen. Just because it looks good on your screen doesn't mean it will print the same. There are just fewer dots per inch in the text and images and they can appear faint and low quality when printed. Look for a print icon on some web pages as it will be at least formatted properly to fit the page and some are of better quality than printing what is on the screen.

When it comes to emails, if the text is in a color, especially blue, they will tend to print light. Change your printer settings to print grayscale and that should help sharpen things up about as much as is possible.

My printer is not printing properly. Print job is completely shaky.


First try making a copy on the printer itself. How does this copy come out? If the copy comes out okay then try deleting the printer and reinstalling it. Sometimes printer drivers can get corrupt and cause problems. If the copy comes out bad then there might be something wrong with the print head.

Our copier were printing fine and then all of a sudden the copies started coming out very light. It isn't a toner issue because we replaced it with a new one and even tested it with another new one....


Hello,
It sounds like you need to do preventive maintenance ( cleaning of laser unit, copy optics, replace transfer and everything that is in HP PM KIT )

Broad dark line on right edge of copied papers


If you have the black line on copies and scans but printing from P.C is fine, then your scanner is broken.

Contact your printer manufacturer for a replacement or repair.

Dell No. 962 (All-In-One Printer)


you need to go to your printer settings and make sure it is set as the default printer for everything. Make sure it is also set as your default scanner. you may also try lightening the image with the lighter/darker setting on the machine. if this continues, you may want to see if a section of the light is burnt out. this wiill cause darkness on scan & copies but not printing from the c drive. Make sure the machine is lighting up completely when is scans or copies. If part of the lighting is burnt out it will be a fix or replace situation.
