what is the difference between eco mode and density - HP p1102w

Good morning,

 

I would like to make sure my printer use as less as possible ink, so it can last longer.

 

I always print in eco mode.

I tried to reduce the density on 1 through the ip website of my printer but it doesn't seem to change anything on the output. "black area" are as black as before and i would like them to appear greyish.

 

by changing the type of paper in the seetings, would this redeuce the amount of ink used?

 

thank you for your help

Sorry that you are having a issue of using a lot of ink. 

 

You can change your resolution and print in greyscale. You can also change your Print settings to DRAFT mode. 

 

This will print faster and use less ink, but as you can see from the (eco mode), print quality can be a issue.

It should be in your settings up PREFERENCES on the computer. 

1. Devices and Printers

2.. RIGHT CLICK on the printer

3. Choose Preference

4. It will have choices of (Best, Normal, Draft)??
