LaserJet pro 400 m451nw - Print is too dark

I have a LaserJet Pro 400 M451nw color, and every time I print any type of blue, it prints really dark.  Tonight, the blue on my monitor was a royal blue, and blue printed was almost black. I reduced the blue on the graph, but it's still not royal blue.  The program I use is MS Publisher 2013.

Is it possible for me to adjust the parameters of the cyan cartridge, so it will not print so dark?

Thank you

  • LaserJet Pro 400 M451nw: Laserjet Pro 400 prints documents upside down

    My Laserjet Pro 400 prints documents upside down.  This only happens when you print in black and white, and from certain applications.  Files PDF and Word documents print very well, as plain txt files and files from my accounting software, but files CorelDraw and images in Photoshop CS5 reverse print.

    If I saved a CorelDraw file in PDF format, it will print correctly, but not the native file of COR.

    From Photoshop, it makes no difference what file format I print - jpeg, tif or even a file not saved - all printed reversed if I select black and white.

    Colour printing is fine for all applications.

    Like most of my needs to print b & w, I the printer defined as it as default and just change color when the need arises, but it means I lose lots of toner if I don't remember to print in color in CorelDraw or Photoshop.  Printing an image to grayscale in color also gives the evil eye.

    Any help appreciated.


    Try to use a PCL5 driver, which is likely to solve such a.

    First, open the control panel > devices and printers, right click on the printer and select printer properties.

    Open the Ports tab, and take note of the path selected for the printer, and then close this dialog box.

    Download and install the driver HP UPD PCL5, follow the installation by selecting the traditional model.

    Follow the wizard of printwr indicated by selecting the same port as used by the original and complete its installation driver.

    The UPD driver can be downloaded from the following link:

    Once you have finished, try to print using the HP Universal printing PCL 5 driver and check for the difference.

  • Help! My M475dn MFP HP LaserJet Pro 400 color printer will NOT print!

    HP LaserJet Pro 400 color MFP-M475dn-CE863A

    Printer on a network and can connect to multiple computers that include: Mac OS X, Windows 7 and Windows XP.

    When I try to print from my iMac, the print queue of the printer says "the printer is not connected.  When we try to print from Windows computers, it is in the right queue and does not print.  When I go the printer itself and try to print a page of demonstration or page supplies directly to him, it says on the screen which is printed, but nothing happens.  This is not hum or anything!  The port where the network cable is connected is switched on green that says HP which means that the network cable is connected.  We've had this printer for a year now, and something like that never happened.

    I did not have any software or anything like that until this happened.  It was working fine on Saturday when we used it, but when we arrived at work today, he just decided that it would interrupt printing!

    I'm puzzled!  I tried 'ping' IP address of the printer from my iMac and it pings fine.  Does anyone have advice?

    (I tried to make of the obvious like too switch the printer on and off and shutting the computer down and nothing!)

    Okay, so I feel a bit stupid right now.  I decided that I would be closed the printer for about an hour to see if it was there, and what you know-it has been!  I had to turn it off several times before but I guess it wasn't long enough.  What a pain!

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to read this!  Sorry to waste time everyone!

  • HP LaserJet Pro 400 m401dne: print from Notepad

    Hello! I have a new HP LaserJet Pro 400 m401dne. Everything works fine except when I try to print both sides of a Notepad document copies. As soon as I select the duplex option, the entire document disappears. We had an another HP LaserJet only printed on one side of the paper; who would have something to do with it? Still, I have this printer on the printer list but am selecting a new. I can print any other documents on 2 sides; just don't leave the notebook. Thanks for any help you can give me!

    Thank you, HP! The warranty issue has been resolved and so was the two-sided printing problem. The technician had to install Universal printing and now I can print copies front and back of notebook and everywhere else.  )

    and when I turned it on. I show masseage like this {10.1002 electric memory error}
    How can I solve this problem, Mr President

    Hello Sir,

    The error that you expose is a problem with one of the toners.
    The magenta to be precise.

    In this case, the recommended action is to replace the magenta toner with an original RESUME.

  • Color HP LaserJet Pro 400 Prin: What are the functions of the printer HP LaserJet Pro 400 M451nw color?

    I had just intalled and set up this printer. Yes, I can print and no problem. But my question is, it can only print or it can do something else like scanning and photocopy-ing? I have not found the explanation in the manual book.


    It is not a printer Multifunction (MFP), it is not an all-in-one (AIO) printer so it can print only:! tab = specifications

    Kind regards.

  • Drivers for HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dne printer


    Product page:

    I bought this printer, so it can be shared among a group of approximately 5 members of staff. I usually download and store drivers for printers etc. on the network and install from there but am unable to find any sort of link from where I can download the drivers 32/64 bits for this product.

    I need to specific drivers, not the UPD. The UPD is very good for the generic print jobs, but does not work with certain software.

    Whenever I try to find a driver for this device links form a circle and just send you back with the same pages.

    I am from this page:

    Can someone provide a link to the 32 and 64 bit Windows drivers for this product, please?

    To make this real simple.  Go to the printer and to the control panel of the printer print a config page or network config which will give you the ip address of the printer.  Now on your computer, go to devices and printers and choose the item add printer, then local printer and on the next page, click on the create a new port and in the drop-down menu, choose standard tcp/ip and then click Next.  Type the ip address of the printer and make sure the box to query the printer and automatically select driveris checked and then click Next.  The computer will find the printer and load the required drivers and set up the printer for you.  If this does not work, report back with what happened during the installation (error messages, etc.).

  • Color LaserJet Pro 400 M451dn: Print vs wireless network

    I used my printer Wireless Ethernet connection between printer and Apple airport base station. I am moving and can use printer wireless without direct connection to the router? (Printer & new router in place will be not near each other for the direct cable connection is not convenient). Thank you!

    Hello @Cary2

    No way, it's a D M451dn stands for double-sided N to the network (wired network), only the M451dw will have the possibility of having the wireless

    The printer must have a wired network to the internet permanently connection

  • LaserJet pro 400 m425dn mfp: mfp laserjet pro 400 m425dn will not connect to the network

    I just bought a mfp laserjet pro 400 m425dn printer/phtocopier and I can't seem to connect to our network.  I have it plugged into the router and it says "cable disconnected" without an IP address.  I don't have the USB cable to configure the machine and I was hoping to do it via the network (which tells me is an option).  I don't know if that has something to do with it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The printer should be released the box set up using DHCP for addressing.

    When plug you it into the router it should pull an IP address, if it is its cable disconnected then you might have a bad port on the router, a bad cable or a bad printer.

    Plug something else into the same port with the same cable and see if it works, if you have a defective printer and need to return it and get a replacement.

    You may also be able to find someone to replace the trainer who has the network port to it.

  • LaserJet Pro 400 M451dn: Problems copying documents from the printer scanner

    I use a Mark II of Canon Canoscan 9000F scanner to scan documents and copy them into the HP LaserJet Pro 400 451dn color laser printer.  I use the 'Copy' button on the front of the scanner function.  When a color or photo document is scanned this way the red and blue colors are reversed when it comes to the printer off.

    Both the scanner and the printer work perfectly in all other situations.

    Somehow the red and blue colors are to be swapped when a document goes to the scanner to the printer.

    I called the Support Canon technique and they told me that they have never heard of this problem and have never had it reported before.  When you use the "Copy" button function there is no setting that can be done. The scanner copy what he sees.

    So why the red and blue are exchanged on the printer?


    What happens if you scan the document itself to the computer and then print the scanned copy? If it is ok, then the question must be the scanner software which sends the document to the printer and has nothing to do with the printer. Sorry, but it's a hot issue.

  • MFP HP LaserJet Pro 400 M425dn will not print the text to format 72 points or more

    My workplace has recently bought a M425dn of MFP HP LaserJet Pro 400 all-in-one printer. It works perfectly except for the fact that it will not print text that is 72 points or larger in size. I tried many fonts that are installed with Windows, and all them print correctly to the point size 71.5 or smaller; Another thing simply does not appear in prints. Content which is of size to 72 points or more * fact * affect the flow of the content printed on the page, however. It's like the 72 points or larger text takes up space, but it is completely invisible on the printed page.

    I tested using Microsoft Word 2002 on three separate computers, of which two have installed Windows 7 and Windows Vista installed. The problem is the same on all three computers. The printer is connected via an ethernet cable to our wired network. I have installed the printer software included, and I don't think that there are updates for it that have not been installed up to this point.

    Any thoughts on how to solve this problem?

    I apologize before the huge hand for the terrible grammar and punctuation that I'm in a hurry

    Now it does not work for everyone but I fixed it on my machine with the following

    now before you print it... .use (ctrl + p) in your text editor to open the print window, click (properties), and then navigate to the tab (Advanced) now, I have a section called the characteristics of the printer in this category there is an option to 'send truetype as bitmap' activate this and see if it can help someone of you, for me, with this PERMIT I can print any font size my processor will allow me to type

  • Lost password - M401 of printer HP LaserJet Pro 400 series

    Hi all

    We have a years M401 of printer HP LaserJet Pro 400 series(touch screen model), a fo our former employee requested a password. Nobody knows this password and need to change the IP address of the printer.

    I'm looking to do a factory reset. What I found on the user guide, the procedure would be:

    Restore the default values set in the factory (touch panel)
    1. from the home screen on the product control panel, press the Setup button.
    2. highlight and press the Service menu.
    3. highlight and press the default button and then press the OK button.
    The product automatically restarts.

    The problem is that when I touch "service" menu, the password prompt prevents me from going to the next menu. Is there another way to do a factory reset on this printer? A button physics somewere? Something to do with the power button may be?

    Thank you very much for your help!


    I found how do:

    After a the NVRAM initialization, reconfigure all computers that print to this product so that the computer can recognize the product.
