Print quality is usually controlled through your property tab on the screen that pops up when you click Print

    I thought so too, but there is no Property tab when I click print. Only General and Options and there are no options for print quality.

  • matthew czap Jan 08, 2013

    look under options

  • Terri West Jan 08, 2013

    when I click on options, the only thing that comes up is a box that says 'print frames'. 'print all frames individually' is checked. 'print all linked documents' and 'print table of links' are the only other options. Absolutely nothing about print quality or print density.

    control panel-printers-click on your printer-then left top tab -then print preferences usually located near the bottom of the screen

My kyocera km2050 copier get lighter print how to get darker one


Are you low or almost out of toner? If that isn't the case then I would call on your local servicing dealer. It could be a problem with the developer unit or it could be something simple. You won't know until a technician looks at the MFP.

HOW TO INCREASE DARKNESS IN HP 4300


1. If you are printing using postscript driver, try using PCL6 - printout would be darker for grey scaled items.

2. Print in lower resolution 600dpi or 300dpi, printouts would be darker.

3. Try printing all characters as black


You can adjust darkness at the printer using the console menu.
In the Configuration Menu ' Print Quality sub Menu , there is a parameter called Tonor Density. Factory Default is 3. Set to 4 or 5 to increase darkness..

You might want to check your printer settings.
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the printer.
To see additional options, click the Advanced tab, and then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option:Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right.

I hope this will help.

Why do my pictures look faded with up and down stripes?


Check the paper to make sure you are using the correct paper type for the project. If the paper is too fibrous, the ink applied by the printer might not fully cover the print surface.
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Pring . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
Press and hold the asterisk (* ) and pound (# ) buttons on the product control panel.
  1. When the control panel reads *******#######, release the asterisk (* ) and pound (# ) buttons.
  2. Press the 3 , 2 , and 9 buttons, in that order.
  3. Press the right arrow button (c00420524.gif ) to select Special Reports , and then press OK .
  4. Press the right arrow button (c00420524.gif ) to select Print Cartridges , and then press OK

Not having good quality print with zebra z4 m


Try slowing down the print speed to 2 ips. Then increase the speed. Usually, this is a problem of exceeding the limits of the printer. The faster you print, the weaker the print. With a ribbon that is matched to the label stock, you will have an optimum speed for best performance.

Cant make prints lighter or darker


There are two ways to do this. One is to change settings in whatever application your are using. Increase your font size or bold your font (if you're talking about a document.)

The other way is to change your printer properties. Go to your printing preferences (from your print dialog or from Start->Printers and Faxes->right click on Lexmark 5400 Series->select Printing Preferences) and increase your Print Quality.

Photosmart C6300 pictures are printing very wet and grainy. printer is also very loud - almost as though the parts were scraping and banging.


Sounds like you have the wrong paper setting in your print properties. I would use photo or high bright 24lb paper and set the paper type in your printer properties prior to executing the print job.
