K would indicate issue with density of black toner or ink. Check your supplies status to make sure it is not a simple as an empty black cartridge.

Getting light print on b&w, changing density makes zero change. Toner changed, no effect.


Check whether you are running as Black and White or Gray Scale. Many printers only print straight black by using all four toner cartridges- Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, black. If are running colored print in black and white and u choose grey scale it will automatically give you a screened image as a light print.

HOW TO INCREASE DARKNESS IN HP 4300


1. If you are printing using postscript driver, try using PCL6 - printout would be darker for grey scaled items.

2. Print in lower resolution 600dpi or 300dpi, printouts would be darker.

3. Try printing all characters as black


You can adjust darkness at the printer using the console menu.
In the Configuration Menu ' Print Quality sub Menu , there is a parameter called Tonor Density. Factory Default is 3. Set to 4 or 5 to increase darkness..

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.

OKI c5100 Printing GREY instead of BLACK.


Not able to print a status page. Tried holding down menu 5 sec and no output. I searched the menu and am not able to find how to print status page. I did print out a demo page and the black is great but when i print out text (like the entire menu map) the black is grey. Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Printing pale


Make sure your printer is not set up as "draft" (see printing settings/properties). In addition try forcing the print quality to "best".
