Setting MFP Default Copy Darkness

Avoid adjusting the temporary setting every time you make a copy

Note that this article concerns the default darkness of laser printer copies, not prints.

Most HP multi-function printers (MFPs) offer two ways to set the darkness for copies:

  • a temporary setting that is easily accessible on the touch screen;
  • a default setting, hidden in the menus.

Most users do not know about the hidden default setting and get frustrated when their MFP darkness settings revert.

With most touchscreen printers, the darkness setting is accessed by scrolling down to Administration. The fact it is necessary to scroll to it has kept this setting a secret. This method includes the CMxxxx and Mxxxx with touchscreens and some of the new Pro and Enterprise models.

The Pro M425, a 2012 model, uses a simpler approach: press Copy, make changes, and set as default if you want to. Non-touchscreen Mxxx models are similar.
