    Change print quality from fine to normal

  • jt9476 Jan 25, 2009

    I have the same problem of not being able to change the image quality from fine (photo) to normal or fast from the printer itself, not the computer. The user guide says to use the "-" or "+" arrows on the printer to change the image quality settings but nothing happens when I use those buttons. Even though I'm using "draft" setting from my computer printer preferences it still prints at "fine" quality from the printer.

Did you check in the software? There should be a print quality option in your driver software.

Slow printing


Check that the default setting for print quality on your printer driver hasn't been set to "Fine".

In your Opertaing System, find your printer (in XP it's under Control Panel / Printers and Faxes) and select Properties. This should then bring up the settings for the driver.

Fine printing quality takes over double the time "Normal" quality takes so would considerably slow your printing.

Hello Charles! Welcome to FixYa!

Actually as you told that you have replaced ink cartridge sometimes ago so with the new ink the effect of primary colors is more and when you print on the high quality the effect of primary color is more.
If you are printing the photos with software the try to print it on medium quality, even on low quality, The result will be fine. You can change the setting of printing in any software. After a time while when the ink will be used the result will automatically fine even on High quality.

I hope you have a clear picture in your mind.

Kodak ESP 3250 Printer shows message "Unable to detect edge of paper" and paper just goes straight through


I've had this problem with my esp 3250 that has become progressively worse over past year. I have tried every fix available online from driver, cleaning, power, etc. My printers default quality was set to 'draft' (just to save ink) which obviously speeds up the printing and I've found that if I use 'normal' or 'best' quality, it seems to help the printer detect paper edges, I think bc it slows down physical printing process? go figure but it's gotten me around a few times when I've needed hard copies immediately. Also, changing to heavier bond paper, 92 or better helped with edge detection. I'll finish current ink and not buy another one of these:(

My printer is hp 2418 it is given print is very slow . so what to do


Adjust the Quality Settings for your printer.

Reduce the quality.

If it's on Best/Maximum Quality, Then change it to Normal or Draft.

That will speed it up, although it will accordingly reduce print quality, as well as amount of ink used per page.

All of my prints are faded. i have always had these issues with this thing. every now and then it prints fine but rarely.


If you do not print regularly on an ink-jet printer, the prints will not be good. You can try going to "print preferences", find the "maintenance" tab, then do what is called a "head cleaning". Cleaning your print head might help improve the printing quality. You might have to do this several times, depending on the quality you seek. Also, bear in mind that cleaning the print head uses a lot of ink from your cartridges.
You can also try and change the quality from "normal" to "best" (also located in "properties", under "print quality" or something similar). Also, you should always adjust your printer to best mode when printing photos.
Hope that helps!

the messages you get for cartridges other than the original are not trustful. You will get the right reading for original(from Brother) cartridges. Some ink is poor for printing photo quality.

not any refillable ink is right for printing photos, sometimes too dark, sometimes you don't get the right mix of colors.

Brother DCP-135C Print Quality Settings Not Working Correctly


Have you uninstalled the driver, and reinstalled it?

Are you running Windows Vista? If so, have you downloaded the latest software from Brother's website? www.brother.com

It sounds like the driver is confusing the settings internally, which leads me to think that it is either corrupt or not compatible with your operating system.

Can't change image quality


The problem is that only "fine photo pro" is available when the paper selected is photo paper. Change source to the sheet feeder, hit the "Paper" button and then select normal paper. You'll then be able to change the quality to normal.
