Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier
So I did the three things that are in the manual, "1) The original image might be too light or dark, adjust the exposure manually to compensate. 2) The copier might be in automatic exposure mode, adjust the automatic exposure manually. 3) The copier might be in photo mode, cancel the photo mode exposure." And the copier STILL prints too light. Is something in the copier malfunctioning? I can't seem to figure it out.
Probably needs a good cleaning. The mirrors get dusty. I would suggest you call a tech. to do it. As you can nock something out of wack.

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.
