Question about Brother MFC-8860DN All-In-One Laser Printer

2 Answers

There is a light black background when I print a page. When I print, the text looks great, but instead of a total white background, it see a black shadow on the entire printing area of the page. This is true no matter what program I am printing from (Word, Eudora, Outlook, Excel, etc.) So it seems to be an issue with the printer. Anhy ideas?

This can be due to a bad corona wire, or drum. You will want to consider having the unit repaired by a professional. if you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

I have one problem with hp laserjet P4014n printing all paper black. the background is black all but word are showing can someone help me in this


If your background is "Black" it's going to print it all black, change your background color to "Gray" and your machine will then print a gray background instead of black. Also note that when you print a black background your toner life expectancy will be no where your expected yield ratio is. Average yield is 5% for X (X meaning size of cartridge) amount of printed pages. If your printing a black background your utilizing 100% yield coverage. Not sure if this is the answer your looking for. However basic black and white printing with a black background will print the page completely black.

Is there a way to copy a document that has text on a colored piece of paper and have the background show up white and the text show up black instead of the background being grey and the text being black?


If the background color is light (yellow for example) you can probably play with the contrast and density settings to make it better, but otherwise you can't, unfortunately.

Copy the text into the NOTEPAD application, to remove all text-formatting & text-colouring, e.g., "white" text over a "black" background will become "black" text over a "plain" background.

DOES NOT PRINT IN BLACK


This may sound a bit dumb, but believe me as a tech support specialist, I have seen it happen. If you are trying to print a document, what color do you have set for text? I had a lady who wanted the text to be white on blue on the screen in Word and instead of setting it with a blue background and "auto" text, she set the text as white. White print on a white background (paper) doesn't show up...:-)

Poor registration on Xante CL30 HSE


Make sure the drums are properly seated in their cradels, and if posible, avoid designing with white small text in heavy solid areas that are made up of process colours. For reverse type in a black background, use spot color black rather than rich black. Other than than printing on a not as heavy card, that is about all you can do.
