I have a print quality problem (pale print consistent all over page) when printing PDF files on the HP 4345MFP, the same PDF document prints beautifully on HP 4000, HP 1300, HP 1320.
All other documents print well on the suspect HP 4345MFP.
The firmware has been updated to 20070613 version.

Re: Pale print on PDF files
It sounds like a driver problem. Try replacing the driver for this printer on the printers folder, using the HP LaserJet Series II. With this driver, try again the PDF file and see if it prints correctly.

If it is Laser Printer then you need to replace the DRUM in Cartridge or need to replace the cartridge.
Incase if it is InkJet printer you need head cleaning. Else replace the cartridges.
