Fine lines in Double-Byte Character Set (DBCS) fonts, specifically Chinese characters, are not printed clearly using the default settings of a Lexmark MS71x, MS81x, MX71x, and MX81x.
The following settings are recommended to improve the quality of result when printing DBCS fonts without affecting the toner cartridge yield.
- Select Settings.
NOTE: Depending on the printer model, “Settings” can be represented by the word itself or either of these icons: or .
- Go to Print Settings.
- Select Quality menu.
- Go to Pixel Boost.
- Select “Fonts” under Pixel Boost options and then press Submit.
- The screen will show “Submitting changes” and will go back to Quality Menu.
- This time, select Toner Darkness and adjust the setting to 7.
- Press Submit.
NOTE: Adjusting the Toner Darkness to 7 should compensate the effects of Pixel Boost in toner consumption. As a result, the toner consumption is maintained as having a regular setting. However, this will result in slightly lighter print. You may leave the Toner Darkness value set at 8 in order to maintain the darkness that you have grown accustomed to, but this will result in reduced toner yield.
