If you are experiencing similar paper output shown as Right Picture, don’t worry. Here’s easy ways to fix.

Solution 1: Adjust toner density to a lighter setting
Blurry, fuzzy, or dark prints may be caused by high toner density.

Open your printer, click Administration→General Settings→Print Quality→Toner Density to lower toner density to a lighter level.


Solution 2: Check the paper type setting


Printer paper type settings really affect print quality. Make sure the paper or media type setting is appropriate for the fuser temperature.
