I bought a second-hand HP Laserjet 2300 to print out on Toner-Transfer-Paper. I am using Windows 10. I downloaded the recommended HP universal driver (PCL and PS) and the printer worked. However, resolution seems to be always the same and does not change when I change the software settings. I called HP and they told me that with the universal driver, max. dpi is ~300. Does anybody have a solution to this problem? Can this Printer really print out with 1200 dpi? What can I do to print with 1200 dpi?
Grateful for any help

HP Universal Print Drivers can support a range of DPIs. Check to see which ones are supported for your current UPD and printer combination.
To check Print Quality:
1. Navigate to the Printer Preferences window for your printer
2. Click the Paper/Quality tab
3. Under Print Quality, Change the current setting in the drop down box
4. Choose another setting and try again
For example when I open the UPD PS 6.7.0 driver settings for my M553 I see the following options:
- 600 dpi
- FastRes 1200
- ImageREt 3600
- General Office
If you have already tried these options then perhaps your printer is too old to sync up with the current UPDs. You would need to find a model specific driver and convert it to work with Win10 or try another legacy driver that is supported by Win10 and hope it works for your printer model.
