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. !

Changed the ribbon, but the labels are to light.


The DARKNESS setting controls the amount of ink released to the label. The 105 has a range of 1-30, 1 is the lightest - 30 is the darkest. The setting used will depend on the combination of label / ribbon used. There is no "correct" number, always try to use the lowest setting with acceptable print quality.

The DARKNESS can be adjusted from the front panel by pressing SETUP and changing or DARKNESS can be controlled from the software or printer driver. The printer driver or software usually overrides the setting in the printer.

Hope that helps !

Im trying to print a document but, its very light in color any solutions to make it darker..?


since you don't state the model of your printer, then take this some steps. first try to find if there is a tone function button in your printer, if you found try to increase adjust the tone, second, try to edit the text color to black, third, try to remove the ink cartridge and clean the contact surface of both ink cartridge and the printer, fourth, use genuine ink cartridge avoid refilling of ink cartridge.

My Minolta CF2001 when making copies the red ink does not comes out clear on top like it does the bottom of the pictures yet there is plenty if ink in the cartridge--help me


Have you checked the half tone print out for the magenta drum. Get into tech rep mode and run half tone with just magenta see if there are any problems. Also tone up machine and run gradation adjustment. But sounds like the drum. One other thing clean the LED rack below the drum

Have riso cr1610 - prints for few copies, stops, displays error code E 04


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..

Ink tone


Hi Pam -

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.

Hope this helps!
