|I'm not tryint to copy a document but, as stated, a document (a piece of white paper with black printed words on it)|
But the good news is that through hours and hours of trial and error, I found the solution myself which is this>>>>> On the machine itself, using the display button,
I changed the paper type setting from automatic to plain and the enhancement setting from none to text.
The existence of this problem just shows how sorry HP is inasmuch as the settings I changed were the hP display settings
Hope this helps someone !
