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

Re: Glossy Paper descalibrates my Ilumina
Check the condition of the yellow drum. Try the same job in different kind of paper (heavier - lighter paper, different matrial).
What kaind of material do ytou use? From my experience i know that trying to print glossy offset paper is very bad for your nerves
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....

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
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
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.

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.
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)
