The contrast is not working on my brother all in one

I can't lighten the contrast when I'm coping. When there is a bold, darker area on the original it comes out too dark to read. When I try the contrast to lighten nothing changes.

SOURCE: Printing not dark and bold.

Well, I can tell you that on Microsoft's Notepad application, I changed the default font to Courier >Bold< and that seemed to help the problem for that application. Font looks like a normal font when printed on the DCP-7020 now. However this is, admittedly, a very limited solution, sort of last-ditch workaround. Haven't noticed the problem particularly with web pages. You might also try looking at the "Text" option. That helps sometimes..

SOURCE: my brother DPC 1000 is printing a dark background

one of two things, either your drum is bad or your fuser.

one thing you can do to narrow it down, is make a copy and as the paper goes in almost all the way open the door. and take out the drum. some paper should be sticking out past the drum, if you still see the dark background, its probably your drum.

be careful, the toner has not been fused yet.
also, try cleaning the charge wiper by moving the tab left and right

How do i make the numbers on the screen appear darker?


Hello,
Turn calculator [ON]. Press [SHIFT][MODE] (Setup). Press the Down Arrow once. You see the option [6:<-CONT->]. That is the option that changes the contrast of the display screen. By pressing the [Right Arrow] several times, you darken the screen. By pressing the left arrow you lighten the screen.
Hope it helps.

Hi Pam -

This is a common problem with the CX 5000 - there is no contrast control (i.e., light/dark) like you would have on a photocopier. But if you use the scanning mode (EpsonScan) instead of the copying mode, there are a couple of alternative options that might help:

1) Brightness - in the EpsonScan program, in Home Mode, under Image Adjustments, there is a button labelled "Brightness." Depending on the colors and contrast of what you're copying, adjusting the brightness may help.

2) Color Restoration - In both Home Mode and Professional Mode, this feature is meant to restore the color to a faded photo - depending on the colors of your document, it may make the copy lighter or darker, but it's an option.

Hope this helps!

Pictures appear to be darker than original in print outs.


You can make several adjustments to improve your images such as lightening dark areas, changing the exposure, sharpening blurred edges, and changing the brightness and contrast.
  • Exposure adjusts the overall intensity of light in an image.
  • Adaptive Lighting improves only the dark areas in an image without affecting the bright areas.
  • Brightness adjusts the amount of light in colors ranging from light to dark.
  • Contrast adjusts the difference in brightness between light and dark areas of an image.
  • Sharpness helps define edges and the smoothness of texture in an image. Use this tool to make a blurred image appear more focused.
Adjusting the image Follow the steps below to make adjustments:
  1. Click the View tab and select the image you want to edit by either clicking the image, or by clicking the small box at the bottom left corner of the image. Figure 1: Select the image c00603524.gif
  2. Click the Edit tab and then click the Advanced tab.
  3. On the Advanced tools tab, click Adjust Image .
  4. Select an adjustment from the list on the left. Figure 2: Adjusting the brightness c00603525.gif
    • The Exposure adjustment is automatically applied when the Adjust Image tool opens. Eight variations of the image are displayed on the left. The current image is displayed in the center. Each image represents a different level of adjustment. When you move the pointer over any of the images on the left, a large version of the image is displayed. Use Preferences to turn this large image preview on or off and to set the timing for the display.
    • If you want to use a different adjustment tool, select Adaptive Lighting , Brightness , Contrast , or Sharpness from the list.
  5. Select one of the images on the left.
  6. Do one of the following:
    • Click Accept to accept all changes and exit from the Color Toolkit.
    • Click Cancel to discard all changes and exit from the Color Toolkit.
  7. If you have finished modifying the image, do one of the following to save your changes:
    • Click Save to overwrite the original image.
    • Click Save As to save the modified image with a different name.
