I'm familiar with what I need to create my materials, it's all text and balck/white photos.
For my need the quality of a photo fine (manuals, manuscript prep for publisher instruction, etc) from printer I'd been using for years. Photos high resolution scanned in grayscale inserted in appropriate text area of a document, then adjust text length and photo size to print area dimension parameters.
Working with my prior scanner (a Brother 2070) all fine as needed except I hit a project needing 2 sided printing (required)
So yesterday bought a new Brother HL-5470DW and assumed I could print out this 800 pages project as I always had, just both sides.
Trying both the text and graphics setting options, at lowest setting (300), and lowest density all images are so dark it's worthless. Far as I can tell it's printing in black and white, rather than grayscale, and found no option to chose.
Is their a software band-aid or do I have to return this and get something else??? And if so anyone recommend a specific model ?? Have a 1 page sample but don't see ability to upload images from my drive.
Can't believe how lousy all looks compared to the dinosaur I had.
