How do I adjust the darkness on my Epson ReadyPrint T20?

Question

How do I adjust the darkness on my Epson ReadyPrint T20?

Answer

In order to change print darkness settings on the Epson ReadyPrint T20 (also known as the TM-T20), you must make use of the Mode Selection menu within the printer self-diagnostics. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Turn off your printer.
  2. Press and hold the Feed button. While holding this button, turn the printer back on. When the printer prints a self-test, release the Feed button.
  3. Press and hold the Feed button for at least one second to enter the Mode Selection menu. When the Mode Selection menu prints, release the Feed button.
  4. Press the Feed button briefly three times to select 3. Customize Value Settings, then press and hold the Feed button for at least one second, until the next menu prints.
  5. Press the Feed button briefly two times to select 2. Print Density, then press and hold the Feed button for at least one second, until the next menu prints.
  6. Press the feed button briefly once to select 1. Monochrome, then press and hold the Feed button for at least one second, until the next menu prints. If 1. Monochrome is not presented as an option, but instead you see options for certain percentages, please proceed to the next step.
  7. Locate your desired setting in the list of Print Density modes. Higher percentages indicate darker printing, while lower percentages indicate lighter printing. The number displayed to the left of the percentage (i.e. 4 for 115%) is the number of times you must press the feed button briefly in order to make your selection. Once you have done so, press and hold the Feed button for at least one second. Your printer will indicate that the new value has been saved.
  8. You may now turn your printer off, then turn it back on again to return to normal printing mode.
