SOURCE: Printing settings

Hi,I have a doubt, whether the perview is good and only the print out is bad or both are bad.
Anyway i am giving solutions for both.
The Statement or Report Looks Fine When Previewed, but Looks Bad When Printed If the appearance of the statement or report when printed differs from its appearance when previewed, this may indicate a problem with the printer driver (such as corruption of the driver files). Make sure you are using the most current version of the correct printer driver for the operating system on your computer. For example, a printer driver for an OkiData MicroLine 390 for Windows 98 may not work well at all when printing from Windows XP.

  1. If you need to check for a different printer driver, begin by checking the installation disk or CD-ROM that was provided with your printer.
  2. If you can't find the driver you need on the installation media provided by your printer's manufacturer, check the CD-ROM from which your operating system was installed (i.e., your Windows CD-ROM).
  3. If you can't find the driver you need on your Windows CD-ROM, or if you need to try an updated version of the driver you are currently using, check your printer manufacturer's Web site.my.okidata.com/pp-ML521.nsf/openingdrivermenu?OpenFrameSet
The Statement or Report Looks Bad Whether Previewed or Printed There are many factors that can contribute to undesirable printed output, such as margins, fonts, and custom paper sizes. Use the following steps to troubleshoot this problem.
  • Try using a different font size. See if there is a separate font size available for the same font family (e.g., 15 cpi vs.10 cpi).
  • Try adjusting the page margins and printer offset adjustments in the Page Setup window.
  • Check the printer driver properties to determine if a custom paper size is specified. If not, you may need to specify one. For example, when printing checks that have only one stub, you may need to set up a custom paper size of 8.5 inches wide by 7 inches tall. Conversely, if a custom paper size is incorrectly selected, printed output of reports and statements may be adversely affected.
  • In the Advanced Printing Features window, select the Optimize for Print to File check box and clear all other options and check boxes.
  • Try temporarily renaming the STI.INI file and restarting the Tabs3 or PracticeMaster program. The STI.INI file holds all of the printer settings. If this helps, you may have to recreate the margins, font selections, and other settings used for printing since that information is stored in the STI.INI file. If this does not help, delete the new STI.INI file and rename the original file back to STI.INI.
  • Is the printer configured to emulate another type of printer? Consult the printer's manual and/or the printer manufacturer's Web site to determine if the printer is able to emulate another type of printer such as an IBM Proprinter. If you have tried all of the internal fonts available in the printer's current configuration, it may be beneficial to configure the printer to emulate a different type of printer and then install the corresponding printer driver. Then you can test each of the internal fonts available in the new driver.
  • Once your printing issue has been resolved, check the printed output to ensure that lines are not wrapping or breaking when they should not. Make sure the margins all appear correct.
  • When you are satisfied that the printed output is completely correct, be sure to look at a preview of the same print job, to ensure that the preview is legible. For some printer drivers and fonts, it may be necessary to make a second installation of the printer that uses TrueType fonts. This second installation would then be selected whenever you need to preview reports or statements, and the original installation would be used for the actual printing.

Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya.

SOURCE: oki c5150 wont print black

First, clean the LED heads with a lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (the LED heads are the attachments on the underside of the lid when you open your printer; four of them for each color). Try printing something after doing that. If it's still an issue just with black, try switching the black and magenta drums/toner (keeping them locked together). The drum w/ toner cartridge simply pulls straight up and out, no switches or locks to flip. Then print a page of text; which will output from the printer in magenta. If that looks okay, then it may be an issue with your black drum and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Oki C3100 - v poor print quality

Hi Errol

The way to identifiy your problem is to send a full colour print to your printer and open the top just as the paper starts to come out . if you then remove your toner / drums for all the colours you can see the transfer belt if the quality of the image that you can see on the transfer belt is good and clear your problem is with the transfer form the tranferbelt to the paper and not any toner /drum issue and the most likley cause is the transfer belt itself "but before you relpace it remove it and clean around the electrical contact points and generally make sure the internals of the printer is free of loose toner .

Assuming that you are using the same paper and have not changed any of the consumables you should do the following:

1. Clean LED head with lens cleaner or soft tissue.

  1. Remove the toner cartridge and give it a few shakes then reinstall it.
  2. The Toner Could be low so Change toner cartridge.
4. Make sure that the paper is not damp as this will cause fading and poor quality printing and images.
  1. The image drum may have been light contaminated so remove it from the printer and store it in a totally dark place for several hours then reinstall it.
  2. If the image drum is dirty then wipe it very gently with soft tissues, being careful not to scratch it.
  3. Open the top cover and check to be sure that each toner cartridge is fully seated and that each toner cartridge lock lever is pushed all the way back.
  4. Press the top cover release latch and open, then close, the cover.
  5. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA TYPE and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
  6. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA WEIGHT and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
  7. Possibly set the value of media weight in the menu to the next heaviest one.
  8. Check PRINT MENURESOLUTION setting and set to 600 x 1200DPI
  9. Check PRINT MENUTONER SAVE MODE and make sure this is OFF
  10. Check PRINT MENU – MONO PRINT SPEED and make sure this is set to MIXED SPEED
  11. Check the COLOUR MENU – DENSITY CONTROL and set this to AUTO
  12. Check the COLOUR MENU – AUTO DENSITY and set this to EXECUTE
  13. Check the COLOUR MENUCMY 100% DENSITY is set to ENABLE if you want a glossier black finish.

What will be the reason for canon sensys fax-L 150 coping dark page but faxing and printing is ok.


First things first. Try and print report from the fax. Any kind of report. If it is printing OK, then the next step is to check if:

Your clients receive your faxes OK? If they are dark as well, then your scanner head is at fault.

When you make Copy on your fax and it prints dark it could be simply set with dark settings _or_because of the white calibration strip or roller being soiled or dirty, which acts as the ultimate white reference point for scanner _or_ the Scanner CCD sensor is in paper jam release position (too far away from reading the originals) just pull it back to normal feed position.

Or simply faulty scanner.

White or Dark Lines in Printout

If you notice white or dark lines in your prints (also called banding), try these solutions before you reprint:

• Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if necessary.

• Make sure the paper type setting matches the type of paper you loaded.

• Make sure you loaded the printable side of the paper correctly for your product.

• Turn off any high speed settings in your product software.

• Align the print head.

• You may need to replace the ink cartridges.

Hope this helps...

Normal printer ink does not print white - it does every other color, just not white - if you really need white printing, you should contact a professional printing company, they can generate white printing,

HP LaserJet M5025 MFP scans too light. Under default job options, image adjustment, darkness set to 3. The printer was sent to us upside down. We recently installed a brand new cartridge. Any suggestions?


If you print the configuration pages from the administration>information menu and they look dark then you know that the printing system is working fine. If they are light as well, then it is possible that being shipped upside down resulted in some dirt getting into the laser scanner. The image original settings are kind of wonky, in that it is backwards to normal assumptions. Darkness refers to the actual orignal you are scanning, so in most cases if you have lighter origjnals then you need to set darkness lower. As well, check whether the image type is set for photo or text. Setting for text will result in darker scans.

Blue Toner finishes quicker


I can't imagine where toner could possible go from one of these sort of cartridges except on to your paper, I had a customer once with the same request and I found on their letter head that they printed with it had a single band of yellow across it hence excess yellow use,,,,,, Do your print runs of anything contain dark bands/underlines? I guess check to see if white background in any prints has a blueish tinge to it, or possiblly somehow black is running out and it is printing the blacks by mixing the colours (Check black block and text to see if it is really black not heaps dark blue to ensure black toner is operating)

next I'd be questioning if cartridges where brother ones?
