Glossy Paper descalibrates my Ilumina

After printing with Glossy paper, I found in the next printing using different paper came out with a over yellow color on it. I open the unit and I see a smooth yellow layer over the moving band that is under the toner. I apply the calibration option that the units without any change, can you tell me how to calibrate the yellow Color?
Other question does the Ilumina 502 print out Glossy, 100, 115 grams?
I will appreciate your support, I another jobs to run and I cannot continue with this over yellow on it. For example, with clouds comes out with yellow over it, looks a sunset instead a clear sky

Check the condition of the yellow drum. Try the same job in different kind of paper (heavier - lighter paper, different matrial).

Suggestions...
first, make sure all your consumables are in good condition, run a configeration page and check the percentages....toners should be 10% or more.
drume should be 50% or more(depends on what weight stock u been running), but run the ID check print, to see drum results.
The transfer belt should be above 20%..
This will ensure your machine can deliver.
next, make sure you have the correct paper weight setting( both in front panel(web browser) and (application drivers) for the stock. If you have setting gtoo high, then over toning will occur.
also, stock must be suitable for laser printing, offset, or cheap paper will drive you nuts....
good luck

I have a HP Color laser jet 2600n printer. I have tried different Glossy paper, marked for laser jet, but still get bad smudges on my prints. these smudges are still visible on the next ordinary prints...


You need to ensure that you are telling the printer that and your print driver that you are using glossy paper as this will change the speed that the printer prints at and ensure better bonding.

Smearing of printed image in color printing mode


many times this problem is caused by the type of paper being used, especially with photos, try a different paper, or change the type of paper in the print box when you try to print. the amount of toner used is determined by the paper type. if you are printing on glossy paper you might get the smearing if you didn't tell the printer to print on "glossy" Anyway, this is most likely where to problem can be solved. good luck

My R1900 is over 1 year old. Profiles are set for Epson glossy and matte paper. Epson ink is used. Colors are now very green when printing to glossy or matte paper. However, if I use the plain paper...


The difference in choosing the paper type will have an impact on how head squirts ink onto the media. For Epson printers, the best choice to fit the color is plain paper.However, to the maximum dpi (best photo or photo rpm), plain paper does not support.This can be overcome by adjusting the color management of the program that we use.Or convert to bitmap all objects (such as Corel Draw), or also in print as bitmap option.

What type of glossy paper should be used for Samsung CL315W Color Laser Printer?


Really there are no 'photo papers' for color laser. As the toner 'sits' on the surface of the page it makes little difference what paper type you use. Ink on the other hand is absorbed into photo paper and the gloss finish gives it a nice look and feel.
You may get a perceived effect with different brightness of paper. I have found the the high bright copy paper is best.

The inkjet papers will not work as it has a coating for inks not toners. From experience and trying various glossy laser papers, I have found that different ones work differently with each laser and its only trial and error. When you print try and scratch the surface as we have found that on alot of the papers the toners scratch off pretty easily.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Gloss or semi gloss paper stuck in fuser


You need to change your setting for media type, and media weight( you can use auto for this setting) but for media type you have several options. Bond, glossy, plain, etc. This setting adjust temperature for the fuser. You can do this at the front panel in menus.

Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope

Glossy Paper descalibrate my Xante Ilumina


We found that the lighter the glossy paper, the worse the problem. I think the Ilumina is so hot that it literally melts the paper. We have great success using 100# gloss offset.The heavier, the better.

Xante Ilumina Digital Color


it is a fact of digital print that toner scatter will apear ever so slightly. But it is noticable much more on glossy stock, as there is a high reflectivity, and no micro valleys in surface texture to loose it in..having said that...glossy stock is very difficult to print on with the Ilumina..even on label setting/ auto select for weight and Media switch on(this is the best I have been able to achieve)
