I have a WorkCentre 3220 that, on the copy function, just won't seem to make a copy that is satisfactorily dark. I have the darkness setting to dark and it still will not make a satisfactorily dark copy. Generally I am copying a laser printer original onto plain colored paper for the bulletins at my church. Really is a frustrating process to try to get it dark enough for people to read. We have always used Xerox toner cartridges but that does not seem to make a difference. I've cycled the machine several times as well.
Any pointers? Or is this just a common problem with this model?
Thank you for using the Xerox forum.
Image quality issues are the most complicated because they can be caused by the application they were created in, or the device setup options, or a hardware problem. I have looked for common issues on this model and density is not one of them.
I understand it may sound simple but I have seen an amazing difference when the same file is printed on white or colored paper and we know that images will not show the same on White paper versus Colored paper.
Whenever you have image quality issues you will always want to set up the image on White paper.
