Samsung Laser Darker Copies

We have a Samsung ML-4500 laser printer which seems to print grey tone copies. Misplaced the instruction book, and wondering how to darken the tone of printed material. Cartridge is about 12 months old with very limited usage, so I would suspect that the toner cartridge is at least three quarters full or more.Advice sought with sincere thanks and very much appreciated.

The first thing you could try if the printer hasn't been used very much is to take out the toner cartridge and give it a good shake from side to side.

Toner powder tends to settle and it may be that not enough is being picked up by the rollers.

You should be able to get a copy of the manual from the Samsung web site.

You can also look in the Help files for the Printer

Start -> Printers & Faxes -> double click on the printer and select Help.

Thanks €dstowe, will try what you suggest re Help and website [I never think of the simple or easy solutions :o)]. Have tried the shaking process, but no difference, hence question.Thanks again.

Will tick as resolved.
