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!

it's only possible to lift 3 shades (like 3to 6, or 4 to 7) without taking undertones into consideration. To go from a dark brown (level 3) to a 9n you would have to pre-lighten your hair with an on the scalp bleach first. Then color with 9n and 20 volume

Hi there,

Check the settings of your printer, either in the software that came with it or the printing preferences in the Control Panel. If your ink tone is set too dark, it could be using a lot of ink. If this is not the case, then:

1) Clean the ink cartridges
2) Replace the ink cartridges as they may have expired. 3) Replace the printer and find one which uses cartridges that can perform more copies in a single fill.

SHARP SF 2214 IS MAKING VERY DARK COPIES. CAN'T FIND TGE REASON


Unplug power & remove glass. Carefully clean the mirrors that you can see. There are 2 other mirrors under the dark box and 1 screw should allow uou access to them. If this does not help then maybe a drum blade problem.

Toshiba 2060 Photocopier prints copies that are a bit too dark.


restart the copier while holding down the "0" and "5" keys. you will now be in service mode. enter "5" and press "start" key a number should show up in the display. this is the exposure value - how dark or light the copies will be. 5 is the automatic exposure setting. around 128 is the normal value. the larger this value the lighter the copies are - the smaller the value the darker the copies.
Enter a new number (exposure value) and press the "interupt" key to save the value. Restart the copier and check what the copies look like. Keep adjusting until it looks good/better.

Dark photos


Check your custom settings in the Lexmark printer utility. I have a different model but mine allows for lightening and darkening of output. Variations in ink density and paper differences make this almost a necessity.

Too dark


This IS an inverter issue. You need a new inverter. Open the LCD and find the inverter model number and search Ebay.

Ricoh FAX2900L printing too dark


check the scanner white roller witch is under the front cover where you feed in the paper to be scanned sometimes this gets dirty you can take it out by releasing the levers on each side..this also sets the density for copying.. if you have just put a newe cartridge in also check that it is seated properly as the contacts for the charge might not be connecting properly
