HP Photosmart C4700 Series

Hi all~

Does anyone know how to change the settings on an all in one wireless HP Photosmart C4700 Series printer to make it scan and/or print darker?

Doesn't matter if I scan and save to computer or print out a page, it's so light you can hardly read it.

Ink cartridges were changed to rule out that problem.

Much Thanks!

I have the exact same printer, right click on icon in taskbar, launch solution center, check the settings, even advanced, that is the place to make any changes..

Hi Susie, I did that and can't find anywhere to make it print/fax darker. Ummmmmm now what?

wondering........

Could the problem be that this printer is not compatible with Windows 7?

Did you install it according to HP instructions, including the use of the disk, or did you just connect it and just let Windows detect it as new hardware?

DA

Damccoy, it's been a while since I got it but I'm pretty sure I used the CD that came with it. I'm thinking this thing has to be compatible, it came with the computer and the computer already had windows 7 installed.

The printer prints fine otherwise?

The printer prints fine, it's when I scan a paper to fax it or email it to someone, it is so faint they can't read it.

Is this a new problem (the scan feature worked fine in the past)? What happens if you copy something? Is there any differences based on the type of document (black and white text vs. color magazine page)? Have you tried changing the resolution of the scan or any other settings?

My Computer came back from the repair shop, but now the HP installation disc is in German, how can I get it back to English?
