Default OKI C612 White toner

Hello!
At the beginning, I'm from Poland, so really sorry for my English
I have problem with my OKI C612.
Just change the K to White, refill with white toner. At program put 100%K, and after printing get very poor white, it looks like not enough toner.
Do you have any ideas how to improve it?
I'm printing only on papers, not for sublimation.
I tried to change settings like black density +3, without result.
I had a old HP, which was much better, so why oki isn't?

Did you clean the black drum for the white toner refill?
You should als get an error code by switching from black to white when you switch back to black because Oki has RF chips to pick up switching the toners out because it COMPETES with there 711WT expensive printer.

I used cleaned black drum. Buy new RF chip for black C612.
There is no error, and I'm sure that drum and toner cartrige was clean before I refill with white toner.
I tried with "Paper color" settings but no result, or I did it wrong.

New Oki drums have a small amount of toners in them so don,t assume they are clean because they are new. It sounds like to me your drum has some black toner in it and is making your white darker.

My bad,
I bought black drum from printers service where they clean it.
They used black drum but all parts where removed and cleaned.
They know that this drum will be used with white toner and they clean it as much as posible.
Can You tell me, should I have "auto denstity" turned off or on?
And "black density" shoud be on +3?


--- EDIT ---
I can see difference between PS and PCL driver. On PS white is more white
So what settings are the best?
PS, Media type: Labels, Quality: Fine, Toner saving: off ???

In PS go to LEVELS and change the 0 in input level to 40. This will increase the density of toner lay down. You can increase it more then 40 as well.
Your main usage is for printing onto paper products I believe.
You could have done the same printing with the Oki mono printer B-412 and print in 1200x1200.

Yes, main usage is printing on papers, I know that b412 would be better, but i had a c612 which i stopped use.
I'm not working in PS, it was about PostScript driver
In Illustrator for example put text, make it 100% K, save as default pdf, and print in PS driver, so there is no input levels.

If you use the PCL driver and print using Photoshop you will have LEVELS.
Change the input level from 0 to 40 or higher and it will increase the density you will need on your paper.
