Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer
We have a silkscreen business. My printer is a Brother HL-1440, graphic class 1200dpi. On regular paper, images are okay; however, on tranparencies (vellum is used to print artwork for graphic exposure), I am unable to get a dark enough image for a good art/graphic exposure on my screens. Also, under printer properties, I only have dpi options of 300 and 600; 1200 is not listed at all. Printing is always done 600dpi unless I have halftones in the artwork, then of course, 300dpi is required for them to expose properly. What can I do so my printed image will be darker on transparencies (vellum) in order for me to get the best exposure of my artwork when exposing my screens? My toner cartridge is okay and I purchased a new drum a couple of years ago, so feel that should still be in good condition. I don't want to purchase a new printer due to the expense involved; however, this is causing me to lose business.
I found a link to the service manual kindly submitted by another poster here, there is some potentially helpful ideas there to fix problems like these: http://www.feedroller.com/Store/Service%20Manual/HL-1230,%20HL-1440,%20HL-1450,%20HL-1470N%20Parts%20and%20Service%20Manual.pdf
Check out p.165 and onwards. If you are like me, the easy service points like cleaning the corona wire and wiping the scanner window that you are supposed to do between toner changes never gets done as long as things work ok. Maybe you already checked that but if not, this could help.
