Pictures have come a long way... but satisfaction really has stayed where it's at. The screen as you call it is a series of mirrors or lack of in your see a crisp image and like what you see; push the button and the process of duplicating what you see on that "screen" commences. image lenses mirrors shaping cicuitry fading ,more mirrors, a few lasers a few more mirrors and then finally to the drum/developer/toner section, which is added to or subtracted to depending on about ten human control factors and a few non-human things like the original, paper being used ,age/number of copies om color unit and good ole' dust on imaging surfaces. Other than that it's fairly simple. ( spend 120.00 on a good cleaning or give it to your kids and buy a new one) ~~~~SC

Toshiba e studio 250 The print is comming out partially faded. The tona is full, so I am not sure what the problem is, any ideas please? Thanks Anuja


It might be one of the part life had ended like fuser drum unit life ends or transfer belt unit life ends. Try to check this parts in the LCD screen in LAN setting. or PART LIFE. See if how much percent is their life parts.

Replacing this parts would normal bring your print out to good printing.

Or adjust the contrast setting in the control LCD menu screen to darker setting to make print out more darker.

The screen has gone light...want to make it darker? This is the print screen with all the variables on top of the machine before you print

Hello bob,
On the operator control panel there is a "CONTRAST" button. It is a thumbwheel, more like a "poke your finger down onto this button " and if you go clockwise the display will get lighter,and conversely the screen will...........get darker. You also have the option of pressing the "ADDITIONAL FUNCTIONS" button, go to COMMON SETTINGS and scroll down till you see REVERSED SCREEN. That will blow your mind if you enable it.I truly hope I have helped you. Happy new year!

Samsung syncmaster 914v monitor problem. Right side of display is darker image. Can see dots like a newspaper print or looking through a screen. When display is black it almost appears like an image is...

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
