.. three ways to fix it:

1) set brightness in printer settings to +3

2) set gamma in printer settings from 1.8 to 2.2

3) manually tweak curves of the image, raising shadows up a bit.

First, make sure you have calibrated your monitor and done so at a proper brightness.

Your 1) and 2) only add snarls to the print process. For 3) see this 7-minute video by Tim Grey: https://youtu.be/tb-ugPMUFhs
