Generally one can set the "Print Quality" in printer "defaults" often they are noted as, Fine, Normal, Fast Normal, Fast, or similar... now that means the amount of INK on the page, the faster you go, the less ink... the less darker it is. Try setting your printer to it Highest/best quality setting see if that helps.
Ink overflow.. On each end of the drum there is adjustments that can be made to the squeege. This is what scrapes the ink through the screen. These scrapers may be applying too much ink or internally too much ink is in the drum. These scrapers can be adjusted from each end. If you have a hard time getting the copy dark enough try to increase the flow of ink through.. this will take away the ink inside quicker. Another problem could be cheap aftermarket ink. I noticed i had a problem with one supplier that the ink was so thin it actually drips out of the drum when not in use.. The only other solution is to adjust the drum internally if the problem persists. This means removal of the drum to adjust ink flow.. This shouldn't be the problem..
This is a common problem with the CX 5000 - there is no contrast control (i.e., light/dark) like you would have on a photocopier. But if you use the scanning mode (EpsonScan) instead of the copying mode, there are a couple of alternative options that might help:
1) Brightness - in the EpsonScan program, in Home Mode, under Image Adjustments, there is a button labelled "Brightness." Depending on the colors and contrast of what you're copying, adjusting the brightness may help.
2) Color Restoration - In both Home Mode and Professional Mode, this feature is meant to restore the color to a faded photo - depending on the colors of your document, it may make the copy lighter or darker, but it's an option.
When you give 'print command' a window appears. From that window select 'Properties' besides the name of your printer. a new window opens , from this window select the appropriate tab as per your printer and adjust ink level or set print quality to 'fast' or 'fastest' or 'draft' whichever opion that may be present.This will make the prints lighter. !
