You haven't given any information at all, especially about type of monitor, how calibrated, etc.

However, there have been hundreds of similar threads on this, and every other photo forum, and the answer is always the same:

Your monitor is TOO bright, or your print viewing conditions too dim!

You can calibrate your monitor to match your printer, but can't calibrate your printer to your monitor!

Some more info here:
