Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you're using.

Windows XP, Widows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Or a Mac.

If it's a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows.

Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

Thank you for your patience and response,

Dustin S.

I have an iMac running 0S 10.11.12
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I did notice that when I upgraded to OS11, the configuration of the print windows changed slightly and it took me a while to find some of the controls, like papers. But I did find them.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
My problem is the printer is printing darker than ever but otherwise the quality seems good. . I can't seem to figure out how to change that. Last night I ran the test prints and it was fine but ran a head cleaning routine anyway. Nothing changed.
Technician: Dustin, Printer Repair Specialist replied 1 year ago

Thank you for that great explanation. Would you mind if I connected to your mac from here, so I can try and work with the printer driver directly and try to solve the issue on screen?

No that is fine but I am going to have to go out for a meeting for about an hour and a half. Can this chat stay open for that long?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Then I can focus on this with you for as long as necessary.
Technician: Dustin, Printer Repair Specialist replied 1 year ago

Absolutely, just send a reply when you return.

I just finished up with the session I was in.

Im not sure if you seen the remote support offer from before. Before I am authorized to connect via a screen sharing / remote support session.

You would need to click and accept the remote support offer.

I already paid $20 on amex for this session. Is this additional charge?
Technician: Dustin, Printer Repair Specialist replied 1 year ago

That is correct. Remote support always carries an additional fee. ( where we fix the issues for you, rather then talk you through the repairs via email )

If you would prefer written support instead, or just want to cancel and submit for a refund, let me know.

If you want to proceed with the remote support session, I would need you to accept the offer Ive sent.

We did the print alignment last night and it was fine. But then we ran the print heard cleaning anyway. We did not try printing a photo so we will do that now. It will take a couple of minutes.

This isn't working for us. The printer was working, just printing too dark. Now the computer isn't recognizing the printer at all so I can't print a test photo. This is very frustrating. I have just restarted the printer.

Not sure what happened to make it disconnect from the computer

i would suggest just restarting both the printer and the computer to try to get that back

as for the original problem. If it is very dark and a bit smudgy what might be happening is that it is set for regular paper and printing on photo paper. The glossy paper requires a lot less ink and if that is set wrong it will put out too much ink and look very dark and even a little bit wet
