consider this:

most printer/scanner/copiers, have a copy button that works without any 
computer attached.

to find out if the printer or computer is not at fault, you can just copy a 

then as a second test, scan the same page using computer, and look at 
difference, then print it out again.

with these 3, you can see that there can be alot of difference. even for normal 

but most likely will the copied page and the scanned and printed out one will 
look the same.

i'm guessing the monitor is the most likely the one to be wrong in showing the
