Check the EconoMode settings

HP does not recommend the full-time use of EconoMode. If EconoMode is used full-time, the toner

supply might outlast the mechanical parts in the toner cartridge. If print quality begins to degrade and

is no longer acceptable, consider replacing the toner cartridge.


This feature is available with the PCL 6 print driver for Windows. If you are not using that

driver, you can enable the feature by using the HP Embedded Web Server.
