    I have the same problem, all our MACs print with very heavy toner coverage. Our PCs print perfectly. Any ideas?

The only time I saw a color laser Printing darker than normal the issue was tranfer belt. The condition you describe matches the problem I was involved in and the tranfer kit fixed the problem.
Hope this helps

Hp color Laserjet printer 5550 printing very slow


Please check your paper tray adjustments and verify that the paper type for the tray is set to any type or plain (assuming you are printing on plain paper). In general, if the machine has reason to believe that there is a custom size or special type of media, it prints at half speed.

Check the black cover on the pick up assembly under the cyan cartridge. If it is only a fraction too high cyan will not print. Make sure it is clipped in place correctly.

Printer is dark


Go to Start > printers and faxes> right click on the laserjet4 icon>
properties > click on printing preferences on the first page > click advance on the next page > under Graphics, you will see print quality. Change it to either 600x600 or 1200x1200. The higher the number, the darker the print.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hp laserjet 5550


Is there a setting for econoprint for this printer? Try that if you can. Also, is this an OEM (original) toner or a remanufactured/refilled cartridge? Usually cartdriges are good for 4000 or more copies at 5% coverage.
