I have a Mac, OS X 10.4.11. I have used the toolbox, but it does not change the darkness. I go to the print quality page, and set the print density to the darkest setting, 5, but the output is the same as the lightest setting. I have Economode off. I do not know what Monochrome RET is, but I have tried it both ways. I have tried every setting on the Print Quality page in the toolbox, and have pressed Apply, but there is no visible change in the output. I have also gone to the Printing page in the toolbox and selected dark for Courier Font (a font I usually do not use). Still no change. I have also chosen every option in my Print command from my computer (in Microsoft word) and there is no visible change.
It looks like I have tried everything, but maybe there is something I have not thought of. Am I stuck with light print forever, or is there something that can be done to make this printer work as well as the old one used to?

The fonts that have printed too light from Microsoft Word are Times 12 and 14, Times New Roman 12 and 14, New Century Schoolbook 12, and Latin 12 and 14. These all printed fine from my old LaserJet 1320n. I am also printing too light when I print pages from the web browser Safari, though I cannot be certain which fonts they are.
Any suggested solutions will be tried. I hope someone sends me one. Thank you.
