Sounds as if your toner cartridge may be nearing the end of its life or you've got the economode turned on. If it's the latter it can be turned off in the printer driver - printer Properties -
On the Paper/Quality tab or the Finishing tab -
uncheck the economode box.

Printing is faint how do I make it darker


Have you got it set to draft? This setting only prints lightly and saves on ink.

HOW TO INCREASE DARKNESS IN HP 4300


1. If you are printing using postscript driver, try using PCL6 - printout would be darker for grey scaled items.

2. Print in lower resolution 600dpi or 300dpi, printouts would be darker.

3. Try printing all characters as black


You can adjust darkness at the printer using the console menu.
In the Configuration Menu ' Print Quality sub Menu , there is a parameter called Tonor Density. Factory Default is 3. Set to 4 or 5 to increase darkness..

New toner but printed output is too light and faint. What can I do?


Hi there !

You need to replace the drum unit of the cartridge and i believe that the part life had ended. you can view this on the LCD monitor of the printer. Go to menu and choose LAN setting. Choose machine parts and check the drum unit is it says life ended. You need to replace that drum unit.

Another way for temporary purposes, set your print quality setting to PHOTO setting. It will print darker than before but not on taking photocopy.

Printing is very weak and difficult to read even though I changed and put a new cartridge in the printer It is a Lexmark X215


hi,
The resolution on a monitor is 72 dots per inch. The resolution on paper is about 300 dots per inch. What looks good on a screen often looks bad in print. The picture you are printing is probably saved at a resolution which looks good on the screen but not on paper.

are you using the right quality paper and are the printing settings adjusted correctly? If your printer is set for photo quality paper and you are using plain paper or vice verse, you wont get good results.

*please clean cartridges with the automatic system.
*Tried auto alignment setting
*Try to clean nozzles of cartridges by humid (wet) fabrics.

please try all the steps for the problem to be solved.

Printing from online comes out very light


Typically, the quality of images and text on websites is very low resolution to keep the file size down in order for them to load more quickly on your screen. Just because it looks good on your screen doesn't mean it will print the same. There are just fewer dots per inch in the text and images and they can appear faint and low quality when printed. Look for a print icon on some web pages as it will be at least formatted properly to fit the page and some are of better quality than printing what is on the screen.

When it comes to emails, if the text is in a color, especially blue, they will tend to print light. Change your printer settings to print grayscale and that should help sharpen things up about as much as is possible.
