LaserJet 4000 Vista Driver Settings?

Discussion in 'HP' started by Nigel Molesworth, Feb 5, 2009.

  1. I want to print a printed circuit board onto transfer film with my LaserJet
    4000 printer. I've set it to "Transparency" as this should reduce the fuser
    temperature. However, the results are not good.

    For a start the printer tries to half-tone the image, so the some areas come
    out grey - I need the whole image as black as possible. I would also like to
    increase the toner level, but I can't find a setting in the driver.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Which driver? PostScript or PCL? I recommend PostScript, but it does
    not have a tone control option. 4050 PostScript has various halftone
    checkboxes in the driver. I don't use PCL any more. Too unreliable

    I've tried both. I've managed to sort out the half-tone problem (the program
    has a "make black" option) but I would still like to increase the toner.
