It could be that the Scanner/Laser on the printer is dirty or needs to be replaced.

Our copier is copying in light shade. how to make it darker


To adjust the default lighter/darker setting

1. On the LaserJet 3015, press MENU/ENTER.

2. Use the < or the > button to select Copy setup, and then press MENU/ENTER.

3. Use the < or the > button to select Def. Light/Dark, and then press MENU/ENTER.

4. Use the < or the > button to adjust the setting. Move the slider to the left to make all of the

copies lighter than the original, or move the slider to the right to make all of the copies

darker than the original.
5. Press MENU/ENTER to save the selection.

Page 48 of the User Guide has instructions for adjusting the light/dark setting during a copy job.

Also see the Troubleshooting section of the User Guide for other possible reasons for light/faded copies.

If your copies continue to come out too light, you may need to clean the insert a new toner cartridge or change brands of toner. I tried several "generic" toner cartridges and refills, but my prints and copies were always faded or streaky. After going back to genuine HP cartridges, I haven't had any print quality problems.

My printer prints fine, but how can I make it print darker. It seems to have gotten much lighter and the ink is relatively new.


There should be a button on the top that says lighter/darker, move it 2 clicks to the right for more ink to be used..... please let me know if there is anything else you need, happy to help! Guy :)

New cartridge prints very light


It is a possible drum issue, but before you get a new one remove the toner and drum and look up above where the drum sits inside. Use a dry soft cloth to wipe the narrow window that's above and try printing again. Toner save being turned on in printer properties will make lighter prints as well.

I purchased a "new" recycled cartridge for my HP 2200d. I have the correct cartridge but it prints so light you cannot read it. I put another "new" one that is also recycled in the printer and it is doing...


in the setup there are a option for more toner on print or you have to put a handle in the printer for darker prints mostally where you put the cartridge in
a recycled cartridge works allways the same as a new one
