My HP P1006 printer prints WAY too light. I installed Win 7 (32-bit), then reinstalled the driver, but there has been no improvement. Changing the print density does nothing!

You read my mind with your last statement regarding print density; that was my first thought.
Try following the steps in this document - Redistributing the Toner (This document displays the M1212, but the process is the same).
Also, try printing a Supplies Status Page (This Document has Instructions for Windows) - see what your page count is for that toner cartridge. The page yield for the standard cartridge (HP 35A/CB435A) is 1500 pages as per HP Shopping.
Let me know if the redistribution of the toner works or not, and also please post your page count from the supplies status page.

Oops, you are right---the toner cartridge is out of ink. Odd, though, that it still prints uniformly, and not the usual very non-uniform printing that is a dead giveaway for a cartridge that is almost empty.
It also doesn't help that the printer often gives false paper-out messages, that require a hard reboot to clear that message.
Thanks and Kudos, Jim
