On the CL7100, you can run the color calibration procedure, and the machine should set itself up for optimum color. Just go into the menu, and under the Maintenance heading choose Color Calibration.
Is the color still off after running the calibration? Is it only one specific color, or all colors? What about when you only print black & white?
The image density should typically be left at the default values for optimum print quality. However, if you need to adjust it, you can go from -3 to 3. In the menu, go to the Maintenance category and then choose Image Density and then the color that you want to change. Adjust the value and press Enter, then run a test copy to see if it helps at all. If not, reset it back to the value that it was (probably 0).
If only one color is giving you a problem, even after running the color calibration, you might need to replace the developer unit for that color.

Are the lines dark or light? You can try replacing the toner to see if that clears it up.
Also, go into the user options -- if you see a setting for something like "toner save mode" turn it off. That can cause poor copy quality and is sometimes turned on by default.

The PCU is the drum unit. There is one for each colour (C,M,Y & K). Each PCU has a 'life' and the machine will ask you to replace it when it has reached the end of its expected life. The PCU life has nothing to do with the amount of toner that you have in the cartridges and they need to be changed independantly.

All four drum units on the 2238C are identical (part #B1909510). Each drum unit can be used for any of the colors.
