Can't find settings to make scan/copy darker

The pritner works fine as a printer. It will scan and copy, but the copy pritn out is very faint. I'm just trying to make it darker, but can't find any settings anywhere. Anyone got any ideas?

SOURCE: printer will not copy or scan but will print

Hi John, Even if you have deleted them by accident, you can always reinstall using the CD that came with the printer/scanner. If you want to do a clean install, then you would probably have to uninstall also the printer drivers and start from scratch. You may also not uninstall and set it up again. If you go this route, it is also possible that you will have two icons in your printer folder of the same hp printer. Assuming nothing is wrong with the hp, the scanner drivers and app would be reinstalled and presumably you will have access now to your copy/scan functions. Should like to download the installer/driver for you printer/scanner, it is available at ( You would have to select your operating system. Hope this works for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

SOURCE: No Copies

It could possibly be your main charge assembly. If there is no charge on your drum, it can lead to blank copies.

SOURCE: Scanner & Copier doesn't work

If you get this error when trying to scan from the computer try starting the scan directly from the device and see if that works. If not, unplug and replug the USB cable(assuing you are connected to the computer via USB cable) and install the driver, if you get any plug and play prompts. Let me know if this doesn't work.

SOURCE: Lexmark X9350 will not scan or copy

Hi, have you had any luck repairing this? I also had this problem. I rang Lexmark support who, after 45min on phone, decided to send me a new machine. They did not want the old one back so I intend to try and repair it when I have time. I reckon the x9350 are prone to scan head problems as mine was making strange noises before it packed up and I have seen other reports of problems on various forums.

Copying is very light while scan print fine

Unfortunately that is typical. You can set the copies to be darker, but often that just introduces gray areas that should be white.

Better to just scan and then print the pdf.

Dell No. 962 (All-In-One Printer)

you need to go to your printer settings and make sure it is set as the default printer for everything. Make sure it is also set as your default scanner. you may also try lightening the image with the lighter/darker setting on the machine. if this continues, you may want to see if a section of the light is burnt out. this wiill cause darkness on scan & copies but not printing from the c drive. Make sure the machine is lighting up completely when is scans or copies. If part of the lighting is burnt out it will be a fix or replace situation.
