Hi:

We need a bit more information in order to better assist you.

The make and model of the printer would be a good place to start.

Thanks,

This is your model - Cannon LBP6030

What do you print?

Check your user manual to see if your printer has this feature.

Toner Saving Mode - When the imageCLASS LBP6000 is switched into the toner saving mode, it allows for up to a 20% more economical toner usage.

1. Use smaller Font.

2. Don't print bold type unless absolutely needed. (Uses a lot of ink)

Use draft mode, if you have it.

Hi:

^^ Excellent advice ^^

One other thing might be to check the Canon website to see if there is a firmware update for the printer.
Manufacturers sometimes issue a firmware update designed to improve performance.

Having said that, if it exists, it probably does NOT cause the printer to use LESS toner...
The printer manufacturers make their $$ not from the hardware, but from the ink/toner.
So, they would prefer that we use more ink, not less.

Cheers,
MM
