Phaser 6215 printing very light black

Can any get me out of this dilemma. It has happened before and rectified itself. I am using genuine cartridges.

 

My first posting, Thank you.

Re: Phaser 6215 printing very light black

Hey, you!

 

This is what I could find::

 

1.
Try a different Color Matching mode. From the printer's frontpanel Support Menu
select Improve Print Quality then select Print-Quality Tips Page and press OK
.
Note:
The TekColor Correction set to Automatic provides the best results for most documents.
2.
If the print is too light, verify that the printer driver Print Quality Mode or Front Panel Defaults is not set to Draft Mode.
3.
Adjust the light or darkness levels. From the front panel Support Menu, select Improve Print Quality?
then select Calibrate Colors Menu, then selet Print Tutorial Page
. Follow the procedure for Lighten/Darken Colors.
 
If you want to read about it yourself, you can do so HERE
 
Hope this helps!
 
Best Regards
Kimzi

Thank you for your detailed explanation. I had a "Eureka" moment and created a large rectange in WORD and filled it with BLACK. I ran through ten or so sheets of paper and the printer returned to its normal black.

Oh, glad that you got it working.

If the problem returns, it could be the toner.
