I'll agree with the halftone assessment, as well as dithering.
In the infancy of printers becoming common in businesses, then consumer-grade,
it was common for printers to use halftoning and dithering heavily.
This put a more realistic image to the paper as desired by most users.
It made for a...
Instead of silicone, look for something which carries Teflon in it.
Here in the US, I can get something called Tri-Flow.
It has Teflon in it, carried by light petroleum distillates.
Wiping away a freshly wet application leaves well-lubricated
and clean part(s).
For an application such as your...
For what it may be worth to you, Gary, another option to protect
the paper and give it a glossy surface, is to apply heavy clear packing tape.
The super-thin cheap stuff isn't such a great option, while the thicker
premium stuff is a better option. It's easily applied to paper, easily trimmed...
Should have been 'Great Britain' and Queen 'Elizabeth', if spelling counts.
Nevertheless, I feel the loss as a US citizen, as well.
The Queen has always been a part of my existence, and her passing ends a significant era
of my life.
It used to feel that the Queen would remain throughout my...
As mentioned, confirm that your paper selection is for glossy laser output.
Notwithstanding the fact you've made cutouts on the result you prefer,
I notice a lot of wrinkling or shrinkage to the paper: nothing is smooth.
Seeing as your print appears to be some sort of mechanical control panel...
If the paper is the same, is the toner different?
Laser & LED printers operate by heat-fusing plastic powders to paper.
If the formulation of the toner material has changed since your successful
printing job(s) is different, that could account for the difference.
It's also possible that...
If you have any remaining concerns about the Yello JeLL-O,
simply flush the yellow cartridge(s) with Windex or whatever similar
is available where you are. It seems that some small amount of ammonia
is the secret to properly-flushed yellow cartridges to beat the issue.
I've flushed all of mine...
Yes, there are many third-party suppliers of consumables for HP toners.
Are they all the same? No. they are not.
ResellerRatings.com is a great evaluation reposit of reviews for such third-party
merchants, as are various sites found from a Google search.
Search specifically for reviews, and...
Samsung laser printers aren't very user-friendly or serviceable, in my opinion,
just like their mobile phones.
I owned a CLP-300 for a few years, and it did well for a time.
3 or 4 years later, it got temperemental, and stopped working.
I could get it to work after 50 to 60 restarts, but it...
Well, for starters, it helps to understand that costs of genuine HP consumables
such as toner & ink are higher than most, due to the brand's market dominance.
Inks in particular, from well-known brand makers, actually cost significantly more
per ounce or ml than the most expensive perfumes...
I took a big chance on a printhead for a MG5320 a few years ago, and due to my vigilance
in looking for imposters against genuine, it paid off.
The big difference for me was learning about how genuine Canon packaging differed from imposter
and fake packaging, and steering away from the fakes...
Just make sure the printhead cartridge doesn't dry out.
That's the biggest problem with Canon inkjet printers.
I keep my PRO-100 and MG5320 PIXMA printers going
with a basic nozzle check every week or two.
The MG5320 has gone to my mother, while the PRO-100
stays with me, and both are good...
