Scanner not picking up Checkerboards

Post by Kevin Durkan » Thu Jan 11, 2018 1:17 pm

Hi,

I’ve been having some trouble picking up the paper checkerboards when scanning in black and white. Some work and some don't, it seems to depend on what printer the target is printed from. If I print the targets in the office they don't seem to appear but if i print them form home they seem OK. Is it some kind of setting on the printer, or the ink type?

Any ideas why this may be?

Thanks
