Using a oki C9300 and my prints is are darker than it should be.

Here are some steps you can take to improve the print quality:

Calibrate Your Monitor:
The most common reason for prints appearing darker than the display is a mismatch between the monitor and the print. Your display should be adjusted to match the print, not the other way around.
Ensure that your monitor is properly calibrated. Use professional image editing applications like Photoshop or Lightroom to soft-proof your images. Soft proofing allows the display to simulate how the print will look.
Adjust your monitor's brightness, gamma, and color temperature to match the desired print output.

Check Your Editing Software Settings:
In Photoshop or other photo-editing apps, review your soft proofing settings. Make sure you're using the correct working space profile (such as Adobe RGB) and that it accurately represents how the image will appear when printed.
Soft proofing helps you visualize how the print will look based on the printer's ICC profile.

Printer Settings and ICC Profiles:
Understand that your printer operates independently of the display. It prints directly from the image stored on your computer's hard drive, not from the display.
The printer has no knowledge of what the display is showing. It uses its own ICC profiles to interpret colors.
Make sure you're using the correct ICC profile for your printer and paper type.

Color Management:
Color management ensures consistency between devices (display, printer, etc.). Properly managed color workflows help achieve accurate prints.
Consult your printer's user manual or online resources for specific color management instructions.

Print Test images:
Print test images with varying colors and gradients. Observe if there's a consistent issue (such as overall darkness or color shifts).
Adjust printer settings, such as brightness, contrast, and color balance, to achieve better results.

Paper and Ink Quality:
Use high-quality photo paper designed for inkjet or laser printers.
Ensure your ink cartridges are not expired or low on ink.
Remember that your display and printer use different technologies (transmitted light vs. reflected light) and have distinct color gamuts. Calibrating your monitor and understanding color management will help bridge the gap between what you see on the screen and what you get in your prints.

For detailed instructions specific to your OKI C9300 printer, refer to the user manual. What follows is how to install ICC profiles. The profile may be making your print darker.

For Windows Users:
Download the ICC Profile:
Visit the website of your paper manufacturer or other trusted sources.
Locate and download the relevant ICC profile for your printer, ink, and paper combination.
Save the profile to a convenient location (e.g., My Documents or Desktop).
Install the ICC Profile:
Right-click on the saved ICC profile file (it should appear as an RGB triangle).
Choose "Install Profile" from the context menu.
Alternatively, if you can't add the profile directly, copy it to this folder: C:/Windows/system32/spool/drivers/color.
Adjust Color Management Settings:
Open the Control Panel.
Navigate to Color Management.
Tick the "Use my settings for this device" option.
Click "Add..." and select the installed ICC profile.
In the Advanced tab, click "Change system defaults", then choose "Use Windows display calibration".
Close all windows. That's it. You are ready to rock.

When printing photos, the tones are off, e.g. teeth that we know to be fairly ''white'' appear very yellow. Is there an optimal color combination setting for photos?

You can download the basic color match software from hp, the problem is due to the fact that the color schemes used do not match, the printer prints using cmyk, and what you see on the screen is RGB. using the basic color match software you can create your own color palette and the printer will recognize the new values.

Color matching

If this is a print problem and not just a screen issue, here's what I suggest.

In Illustrator, double click the colour swatch for the Pantone Book colour you are using and obtain the CMYK values.

In Quark, instead of using the same Pantone Book colour, create a new Process colour with the same CMYK values as the Illustrator swatch.

Color drivers

Do you mean you do not see color on your monitor display right now?

If so:
1) Find out your monitor model
2) Do a search naming your monitor model (ie) dell 783s) and download the driver specifically for windows 98
3) see below for accessing Device Manager to update the monitor driver:

Microsoft Windows 95, 98, and ME users enter the Windows Device Manager by clicking Start, Settings, Control Panel, System icon, and finally clicking the Device Manager tab.

Below is a basic example of what the Microsoft Window Device Manager may look like when open. Clicking on the below image will open a more readable version of this picture.
