My phaser 740 has print that flakes off when you print pictures with real dark areas. I assume it needs more fuser heat or less paper speed. The problem is I can' t figure out how to adjust either of these...


Recalibrate the colors. Flaking is sometimes caused by more ink/toner than can be fused to the media. There's a limit for the total amount of ink/toner. Yours may be set too high.
You'll need a copy of the Printer's User's Guide (also Downloadable from Xerox.com)

Controlling Color Density

When colors look faded, adjust the toner color density to extend the life of the components.

Print and use the Color Reference Page 1 In the printer's front panel, scroll to Calibrate Colors,

press Menu and print the Color Reference Page. 2 Compare the Color Reference Page to the Color Density

Samples on page 39. Make a note of the value (-10 to +10) for each color that most closely matches the samples.

3 Adjust the density for each color: Enter the value noted in Step 2 in the Calibrate Colors menu, under Adjust Each Color.

? Decrease color density: Press . ? Increase color density: Press --->.

4 Reprint the Color Reference Page; check your adjustments

Hp m3035 won't print page comes out warm but no toner


Load paper in tray 1. Print a few pages, as it's printing open the top cover, remove the toner, look at the paper in the printer. Does it have printing on it? If it does, the laser/scanner is working. It could be the transfer roller, it could be Hi Voltage Power Supply. Look in Print Quality Menu/Toner Density. Increase the density.

A new laser could help, but you should make sure the toner save is turned off, it makes toner last longer by making light prints. Toner save is set in printer properties in the control panel

How to change the density of the printer HP LaserJet 5p


I'm afraid this won't be of much help to the original poster, who asked the question a year ago, but anyway - others may be looking for this too, just like I did...

To change the print density, a simple command must be sent to the printer. This is done in two steps:
  1. Create a file, containing the command
  2. Send it to the printer ("copy" it to the printer, in a DOS shell)
The command is:
<ESC>%-12345X@PJL DEFAULT DENSITY=4
where <ESC> represents the "Escape" character (character code 27). There are several ways to generate the Escape character (which cannot be directly entered in a text editor): E.g. substitute the character with any other, save the command and then replace the first character with 0x1b using a hex editor.

Or:
  • Open a DOS window
  • Enter:
    copy con density.txt <Enter>
  • Hold the <Alt> key
  • type 27 on the numeric keypad
  • Release the <Alt> key - the Esc. char. is shown as ^[
  • Type the rest of the command (e.g. %-12345X@PJL DEFAULT DENSITY=4) - adjust the density value to the one you actually want to set.
  • press <Enter> <ctrl-Z> <Enter> to write the file
When you have successfully created the command file, send it to the printer. In the DOS window, enter:
copy density.txt LPT1
(assuming that your printer is connected to LPT1)

That's it!
To verify that the density has actually been set, print a printer status page.
The printer remembers this setting, so this needs to be done only once.

Can't color balance 2605


well, the density is actually a combination of two aspects. The original document settings, especially in color transforms. Usually, the software will have a transform specific for the printer. In my experiences, trying to tweak the printer for each print job, can cause extreme frustration. Check the software manual for settings for your printer, and perhaps you'll get closer to this solution.
