My scanned pages are too light.

Try to use the Lexmark All-In-One Center Application on your computer to adjust the darkness of your prints. On your computer, click on Start > Prorgrams > Lexmark 2600 Series folder > select All-In-One Center. From the Copy tab, select "darken" copies.
For printing, Normal or Best mode in the Print Setup properties before sending the print job to the printer for printing.

Light printing on receipt

I was able to darken the print resolution with the help of a software company I pay each month for technical solutions. They had me take a plate off of the bottom of the printer and change a very small switch that if I had not been directed exactly how to do it I would have never tried it. thanks

Scanned documents are very light

I have found that when scanning b/w documents, its helpful to start with a black and white copy, not a grayscale, pen written, or printed form a printer in grayscale mode copy, but a true black and white on the copier or fax copy. The scanner doesnt read shades of black so well and when scanning multiple page documents, my pixma tends to scan in lightly. I havent found a piece of software to do just this, batch darken what has been scanned (at least not for free). Copying before scanning is the work around. Hope this helps everyone who's had this problem. It also doesnt hurt to darken what your scanning down a notch when copying
