Printer (Faint Printing) Problems?

» close window

The Question is:

when i give a printing order very faint print appears on the prented paper ,
 though the tuner is new and the printer works good mechanically.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is unaware of any supported printer that involves the
  OpenVMS operating system directly controling a printer to this level of
  device operations, and thus this problem would appear to be a hardware,
  operational or possibly a configuration problem with the particular (and
  unspecified) printer.
  As an example of determining involvement of OpenVMS, for instance, you
  could try generating a self-test page -- most printers provide for this
  capability -- as OpenVMS itself is obviously and entirely uninvolved
  in this particular task.
  Please contact the vendor of the particular printer involved -- or the
  organization that is supporting the printer -- for further assistance.
  (The OpenVMS Wizard is not familiar with and not available to provide
  printer hardware support -- the OpenVMS Wizard is familiar with and can
  usually answer questions specific to the OpenVMS operating system.  The
  OpenVMS Wizard is not familiar with any HP nor third-party printers.)
  Expect to be asked details of the printer including the model, and for
  a description of the quality of the output from a printer self-test page
  or equivalent function.
