Dell 1320c is giving faded printing in both color and black. I've replaced two toner cartridges, tried to 'bleed' the cartirdge by printing 20 copies, toner save is turned off and there is no...


After you click print, and just before you print, go to your 'printing preferences' or 'print settings' in the popup window. From there, cycle through the tabs, and ensure that 'print quality' is NOT at draft and IS on normal or high quality. Alternatively, you change the 'print resolution' in this window, if the option is available. Resolution is usually given in 'dpi' so choose the highest 'dpi' value. This should hopefully give you darker prints

The black print on my Dell 1320C laser printer is very light (grey) in fact. I replaced the black toner at no avail. The other colors are fine.what can I do to soulve the problem. ...


It sound like you have either a very low toner density set, which would normally be set either through the control panel or the driver, or possibly the Dell Toner conservation system turned on. Here is Dells owners manual info on dealing with light print.
The toner cartridges may be low or need to be replaced. Confirm the amount of toner in each toner cartridge.
  1. Press [Printer Status], and then click the Status tab in the printer driver.
Ensure Non-Dell Toner is not selected in the Printer Maintenance tab in the Tool Box.
  1. Click the Tool Box button.
Set Toner Saving Mode to Off in the printer driver.
  1. Press [Printing Preferences], and then click the Advanced tab.
If you are printing on an uneven print surface, change the paper type setting in the printer driver. For example, change the plain paper to thick.
  1. Press [Printing Preferences], and then click the Paper Tray tab.
Verify that the correct print media is being used.
  1. See "Print Media Sizes and Support".
Ensure that eight yellow ribbons are correctly removed from the PHD (Print Head Device) unit.
  1. See "Replacing the PHD (Print Head Device) Unit" and "Installing the PHD Unit".
Ensure that the developer motor starts.
  1. Contact Dell.
Ensure that the dispense motor starts.
  1. Contact Dell.
When you are printing many images with low density, do the Toner Refresh Mode.
  1. Click the Tool Box button.
  2. Press the Start button to check the density of colors.
  3. If the print is too light, Select Refresh Mode from the list. Press the Start(1)-(4) buttons.
CAUTION: Using the Refresh Mode consumes extra toner.
  1. After you complete the Refresh Mode, select Chart Print from the list. Press the Print with A4(3) or Print with Letter(C) button for 4 Colors Configuration Chart. "Printing" appears.
    Is the problem recovered?

How can I alway print in black. I do not want to print in color


Open the printer settings from the control panel and set the printer preferences from there.
You can also click start menu, then click printers and faxes on the computer onto which the printer is installed. When the list of printers are shown, right click on the printer whose settings you want to change. Select printing preferences. Select the printing color settings set appropriately.

My Dell 1320c Colour Laser Printer prints black as grey. How can I get it to print black?


If you have an extra black toner cartridge, try installing that and see if it fixes the problem. If it doesn't make sure Toner Save Mode is off (in the print driver, under Preferences). If your copies still come out gray instead of black, you may need to replace the Print Head Unit (PHD).

My dell printer 1320c The black print comes out faded, the rest are fine


Howdy there! it is possible that the ink is clogged. take a cottonball and dab it is alcohol and then apply it to the black ink cartridge. If this is not working, also clean the printer well where the ink goes into the printer. if still a challenge, you can check to make sure the black is turned onto full color black. From file menu, click print, then advanced, make sure that everyday printing is welected, then choose the color tab and make sure that grayscale is not selected, if so, click on color and black. please let me know if this does not work, pleasure to assist tonight.....
