Density Adjustment in HP Laserjet 1320

Firstly I doubt that economode is set by default, but maybe the printer is in
economode for some reason.
Secondly I would normally expect the problem to be the toner cartridge but
assuming you have checked this my suggestions are as follows.
1. Run two internal prints from the printer.
a. By pressing the green "go" button briefly.
b. By holding the green "go" button for 5 seconds.
The first print should give you an indication of the print quality, if it
is good then the printer itself is probably behaving normally.
The second print will tell you exactly how the printer is set up. This
includes whether economode is on or off and what print density it is set for
(default is 3, range is 1-5).
2. If economode is on or the print density is lower than 3 the easiest way to
fix this is to do a cold reset on the printer as follows.
Important note: This will reset the printer to factory defaults, the only
setting that is critical is the jetdirect setting. Since you stated that your
printer is a 1320 and that you are running DOS I am assuming that it does not
have an "n" (for network) suffix eg 1320n. If I am right in this assumption you
can ignore the jetdirect comments above, if it is a network printer the second
printout from 1a should provide the jetdirect information which you may need to
keep for future reference.
Cold Reset Procedure:-
a. Turn the printer power off
b. Press and "hold" the green "go" button whilst turning the printer on.
c. Continue to hold the go button for at least 5 seconds and until the amber
attention light turns on (triangle with ! in the middle), this should occur
before 15 seconds elapses.
d. Release the go button.
Factory defaults should now be reset and you can check using 1a whether any
changes occurred.

300 dpi against economode

DPI mean Dot per inch. Ecomode will economize your ink but 1320 dpi will print high quality with more ink usage

Hp laserjet p3015 prints really dark. how can i lighten it?

EconoMode This product has an EconoMode option for printing drafts of documents. Using EconoMode can use less toner and decrease the cost per page. However, using EconoMode can also reduce print quality. HP does not recommend full-time use of EconoMode. If EconoMode is used full-time, the toner supply might outlast the mechanical parts in the print cartridge. If print quality begins to degrade under these circumstances, you will need to install a new print cartridge, even if there is toner supply remaining in the cartridge. Enable or disable EconoMode in any of these ways:
  • At the product control panel, select the CONFIGURE DEVICE menu, and then select the PRINT QUALITY submenu. EconoMode is turned off by default.
  • In the embedded Web server, open the Settings tab and select the Configure Device option. Navigate to the Print Quality submenu.
  • In the HP Printer Utility for Macintosh, click Configuration Settings , and then click Economode & Toner Density .
  • In the Windows PCL printer driver, open the Paper/Quality tab, and select the EconoMode option.

Printer is printing to lite. replace toner and set printer to off on economode. Still prints lite

Can be caused by a number of things.
In the Print Quality menu(where you did the economode adj) go to Toner Density. Change the number to 5. See if that helps.
Could be bad paper.
Make sure that the transfer roller is good and seated correctly.
High Voltage Power Supply could be bad.

How to get 300dpi from hp1020 laser?

HP support does not list the dpi for its "EconoMode (Save Toner)" setting, however the next highest setting is 600 dpi.

If you are printing drafts and want to save toner, the EconoMode can be chosen in Control Panel from one of your printer's properties tabs.

Recommended action:

Try performing a test print from PDF files in the computer to check for the results.

300 dpi priting

Your printer doesn't have a 300 DPI setting, however, you can select "EconoMode" from the "Preferences" menu after you select "Print". Look for a tab that says "Quality". EconoMode will be lighter than normal 600 DPI printing, thereby saving toner.

Print has started coming out very faint. difficult to read. can i set machine to print darker or revise resolution

Sounds as if your toner cartridge may be nearing the end of its life or you've got the economode turned on. If it's the latter it can be turned off in the printer driver - printer Properties -
On the Paper/Quality tab or the Finishing tab -
uncheck the economode box.
