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

Printing very light Okionly B410d printer usesblack toner cartridge


Try performing a stop test. Send a test page and turn it off mid print. Retrieve the page from the printer to see if the image is readable before it went through the fuser. If so the the fuser may need to be replaced.

Scanner component scans and prints normally. Trying to print off an e-mail is a different story. The little screen says 'printing' and it goes through the motions. You can hear the carriage travelling line...


check the ink cartidges (the color ones) scanners use just black ink to print with (all grayscale) if you can't buy/ afford cartidges right now (who ISN'T broke these days!?!) then set the preferances on the printer to "black/ grayscale" and see if that works ( also is a good test to see if ink is out)

My Dell 1700n Drum and Toner Cartridge were both replaced when the drum replace light blinked and the print was getting lighter. Despite resetting the Drum counter the printer still only prints faintly...


Have you checked the fuser?

A laser printer fuser assembly is the heating roller unit that melts and fuses the toner onto the paper. The fuser assembly is made up of a heating roller and a pressure roller.

The heating roller applies the heat to the toner on the printed page and the pressure roller presses and fuses the toner into the printed page. If it's bad and not heating properly, the print will be faint, which is what you describe. You may be able to remove and clean the fuser, but if the printer gets lots of use, it may just be worn out.

See this link for an idea of what it looks like and a price.

Myprinter will not print all colours they are mainly blue and yellow but very faint. I have carried out ALL the maintenace procedures several times without success and have checked that all the cartridges...


Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Printers
Right-mouse-click on your printer, and choose "printing preferences" or "properties".
There may be an option to control how "light" or "dark" the printing will be, i.e., use "less" or "more" ink per page.

Also, click "print test page", to ensure that the test-page has all 3 "primary" colours.

Also, click "clean ink cartridges", to try to repair any blockages inside the ink-cartridge.
