Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Dell 1600 - Print on copies is very, very light. We have put in a new toner and set the contrast to "Darker", but the copies still are light and hard to read.

Hello,
You can try a couple of things,
1. Verify that the pull strip was removed from the toner cartridge before it was supposed to be installed.
2. Shake the toner cartridge side to side to loosen the toner inside.
3. Clean the inside of the printer with a can of compressed air.

Good Luck!

Fax machine print light


When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.

Normally the problem is low toner.

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

Our copier is copying in light shade. how to make it darker


To adjust the default lighter/darker setting

1. On the LaserJet 3015, press MENU/ENTER.

2. Use the < or the > button to select Copy setup, and then press MENU/ENTER.

3. Use the < or the > button to select Def. Light/Dark, and then press MENU/ENTER.

4. Use the < or the > button to adjust the setting. Move the slider to the left to make all of the

copies lighter than the original, or move the slider to the right to make all of the copies

darker than the original.
5. Press MENU/ENTER to save the selection.

Page 48 of the User Guide has instructions for adjusting the light/dark setting during a copy job.

Also see the Troubleshooting section of the User Guide for other possible reasons for light/faded copies.

If your copies continue to come out too light, you may need to clean the insert a new toner cartridge or change brands of toner. I tried several "generic" toner cartridges and refills, but my prints and copies were always faded or streaky. After going back to genuine HP cartridges, I haven't had any print quality problems.

Xerox M15i uneven print and photocopy quality. Center of the page is darker than edges. I have run the clean drum, put in a new toner cartridge.


If the problem appears BOTH by copy and print situations, the problem is the drum unit itself.
Unfortunately you have to buy a new drum assy.

Canon ir 1600 my copier print copy image is very poor


Hi there,
iR1600 are special machine that needs a little bit more care.

First, clean the laser unit and optics ( beneath copy glass too ). Then use some polisher and polish the developing cylinder and clean/replace developer cylinder blade.

Use GENUINE CANON DRUM UNIT and GENUINE TONER.

Brother HL-5502DN prints so light - can you adjust to make the print any darker?


Just wondering if you may have replaced the toner with a remanufactured unit.....it may be bad toner. or it may be ruinning low without warning you. I believe it is cartridge related whatever the case. recommend trying another one
You cannot adjust the contrast

Light copies


You may have your machine set to print in "toner save" mode. Check your machine settings by printing a list. Also, some generic toner cartridges have too much polymer in the mix and will print light copies. If you change back to OEM toner, you may have to change the drum too, as the extra polymer stays in the drum unit and weakens the mix.
