Print too small to read..

My printer is a Lexmark - (x-8350) All in One ---- Driver compatible with Vista is installed. The print is so small I need a magnifying glass to read it. I have attempted what adjustments I could make and nothing happens. I have contacted Lexmark and the help they provided me was minimal. I have never had this problem before and all of it sudden it pops up. I have new cartridges installed, however, not only is the print tiny, but the print is extremely light. Thank you in advance for whatever assistance you may be able to provide me. I just kind of hate to have to go out and get a new printer without knowing if something can be to done to solve this problem. Thank you again.

Does it print correctly for any application (prints OK from Notepad, for
example, but not from IE), or do you see this printing from all
applications?

Thank you for your response. In answer to your question. Everthing that I print, from wherever, all print the same way --- very tiny and very light print. Thank you again.

It sounds like the default font on the device is set. Print the
configuration page from the device and check. I've seen this on other
Lexmark devices. I don't recall if there is a setting in the driver. Check
font substitution settings. If device fonts are substituted and nothing
downloaded to the device, then this would make sense.

Thanks, Allen! I'm not familiar with that particular printer, so I have no
idea where to tell her to look, but it does, indeed, sound like a default
font issue.
