Adjust Print Darkness
The best darkness setting depends on a variety of factors, including ribbon
type, labels, and the condition of the printhead. You may adjust the
darkness for consistent high-quality printing.
Important • Set the darkness to the lowest setting that provides
good print quality. If the darkness is set too high, the ink may
smear, the ribbon may burn through, or the printhead may wear
Note • The printer applies and saves the darkness setting
immediately. Exiting Setup mode without saving changes does not
restore the previous value.
If printing is too light or if there are voids in the printed areas, increase the
darkness. If the printing is too dark or if there is spreading or bleeding of
printed areas, decrease the darkness. Darkness settings also may be
changed by the driver or software settings.
The FEED Self Test on page 100 can be used to determine the best
darkness setting. Because the darkness setting takes effect immediately,
you can see the results on labels that are currently printing.
