Ink is faint

two possiblities
1)not enough ink for the saturation of the media
2) media is not correctly saturated by the ink
sounds like the same issue- let me explain
your image may be purposely printed light because of 'ink save printing'( driver cuts down reqired ink levels to give a draft print.)
or your problem may lie with the paper type itself,
firstly have the machine print off its internal demo page ( read user manual to find how to print)
this print being held by the printer cannot be affected by external controllers, if the demo page looks nice aand even and strong in colour then your issue is software related and you should have a look at how the pc is handling these documents before they get to the printer.
if the demo image is light then you have a problem inside the printer
if it is the latter please re-post as internal demo page printing light in colour

Poor print quality on hp 1312

Hello Terry there are few things i would check :
1) Try printing a demo page directly from the printer, go to Setup>Reports>Demo Page
If you see the poor quality on this internal page that means that the issue could be related to hardware failure. Laser scanner assembly most of the times
2) Check on the toner level for the cartridges by printing a supply status report
3) If the problem is not on the demo page i would try replacing the printer driver for a Post Script Driver, you can download them from
4) You can Adjust the Print Quality by going to Printer Preferences under the driver

Black ink prints half a page then fades out. Sometimes does not print black at all. I have replaced the black ink cartridge twice and ran "clean printheads" many times. Still will not work

HI since you tried replacing the cartridges and cleaning the printhead, try the steps below.

1.Print a Demo Page.

a.Press the Menu button of the printer.
b.Use the down arrow key and select Print Demo Sheet.
c.Press OK button.

If demo page doesnt have black ink or faded prints,the printhead on your printer require replacement. Call 1.800.421.6699

I downloaded the driver from epson's site and ran setup. It completed as succesful but when i try to print a demo page... it starts and stops like spikes... works 1 sec stops and then stars again...

That may be normal for a demo page. Your machine MAY take a bit of time to format and transfer the page data.

If it does this for normal print, then there may be an issue. The print data is spooled onto your disk before going to the printer. If you have other heavy activity going on such as downloading files, this can interupt the printing in spurts.

Dell 1700 is printing ALL black pages... cartridge? Check to see it's seated properly. And after replacing, go to the admin panel for the Dell printer, and check all the settings. Then, do a single test page, before doing a print run.

has an option for a FREE Demo of a shared screen session. Click on the Free Demo link, and maybe we can t/s that from here.

Epson r300 error code

Check printer status it has to on "ready" status, then again try to print a demo page located on your printer settings that you don't need to have computer connected. if you can print demo page that you know printer is working fine then again you only have to try for PC connectivity and drivers. if you can print demo page trough printer replug USB still if its not working try to reinstall drivers.
