I am having poor quality printing on single pages and NCR forms. The impression control is set to the max. The repair person could not correct the problem. I am having to type everything using the bold feature which slows me down. Otherwise I need to type and retype the same word several times.
Hi, Check the advance of the ribbon cassette after each print. There should be a small gap between each print. If the print looks like it's jumbling together on the cassette then the Multistrike feature has been activated and on a normal correctable cassette this will produce terrible printing on paper. To fix press and hold down the code key, and press the full stop. Test the printing

Whats the question?? if poor quality printing, it could be dirty ink cartridges, dirt on the print head, poor quality paper ??? try looking at the printer settings, sometimes they may be set to economy rather than top quality printing.
You do not say what exact model of printer you are using so any answer will be generic rather than specific.
Poor colour and black tone can be as a result of various factors: 1. Poor paper quality that you are printing on. 2. Poor ink or toner quality being used. 3. Use of Ink / Toner saving modes or software. 4. Worn or damaged printer components such as the fuser roll on a laser printer and other similar consumables with a limited page use life. 5. Poor quality content being printed, i.e. low quality images being printed at too high a print resolution.
This is a problem with your paper. Using multi-part forms on an impact printer will get lighter print on each layer working from the top form to the bottom. The "carbon" paper has to impact the paper hard enough to make the marks. If your top and bottom copies look good but some in the middle are light it is a problem with the "carbon" paper and not the printer. Now IF the top page is light and each copy under that is getting lighter then you need to close your platen gap (the lever on the right side of the machine mark A B C) go one click at a time (darkening) until the print quality looks good (or you go too far and it pinches the paper and jams *not good*)
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 .
