laserjet MFP M277dw is printing very light

Laserjet MFP M277dw
macOS 10.15 Catalina

My laserjet MFP M277dw is printing perfectly even, but always very light, ureadable, unusable

This happens from whatever computer or source I print from. Also the demopage from inside the printer does this, so it has nothing to do with the driver.

Cartridges or all almost new and original HP.

Cleaning page has been done and the cartridges are placed correctly.

At this moment the printer is unusable (with new and expensive high capacity cartridges)

B/W or Color, all the same.

In the webpage interface I have already tried to raise the density to +2 on all and that makes the print slightly darker but still way too light.


This has happened before?

Any solutions?

Please open the Setup menu on the printer and select Reports, then print a Printer Status Report, as well as a Configuration Page too.

Please include a picture of the printed reports and share it with me privately via a private message, to get a better understanding of any possible cause.
