Download an icc profile above, then (in windows XP), go to display
properties > settings tab > advanced > color management >
Select the downloaded icc profile, set as default. You now need to reboot windows
Make sure to set the Print Quality mode in the print driver to "Standard" and the TekColor Correction to "None" before performing the next step. This will allow the job to purge only the problem color. Other settings may cause the printer to use a percentage of the other ink sticks.
Print approximately 50 - 100 pages of the document, as necessary, until the printed color returns to normal.
Next. This is on xerox.com downloads and drivers.
The updated sRGB Display and sRGB Vivid color tables for the WorkCentre will help with the following issues that have been found with the original factory color tables.
RGB images contain too much yellow.
RGB image red shades are too orange or too light.
RGB object blues are too dark or aqua.
CMYK objects use the sRGB Display color table when the Automatic TekColor correction is used. After the updated color tables have been downloaded to the WorkCentre, the CMYK objects will use the Commercial Press TekColor correction when Automatic is used as the TekColor correction.
NOTE: The new color tables will only take affect when using the Enhanced or High Resolution / Photo print quality mode.
To update the RGB color tables:
Click on the [Drivers & Downloads] link under the Product Resources menu on this window to download the updated color tables to a known location on the computer's hard drive. The color table update file is located under the Color Profiles section on the Drivers and Downloads page.
After the file has been downloaded to the computer, send the file to the WorkCentre. See the Related Items below for additional information.
What makes you think the scan is bad quality? How are you proofing it. Did you print in on a printing press or other CMYK device? The CMYK colorspace cannot be displayed on monitors without the program you are using converting it to RGB for display. Are you reading the actual CMYK values with the densitometer?
In my experience, with cheap scanners (under $75,000) it's best to scan to RGB and let Photoshop do the CMYK conversion. Just be sure to use the correct profile for your output intent.
hi! try this!
1. go to control panel, select the printer, then right click the model of your printer, select properties, then select printing preferences.
in printing preference, select effect, then check the box of vivid photos. If you check vivid photos it will add enhancement to your printout. But thats not it,
2. open your photoshop, find your color settings, set your RGB color to (sRGB IEC61996- 2.1) then you CMYK color to (U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2) then off all your Color-management Policies and don't mind anything.
3. After your Edit your photos from RGB, then convert it to CMYK, then try printing it.
Just dirrerent intrepertations by the driver.
Often times "auto" settings are not the best to use.
You can default it to the best management solution for your computer/printer matchup.
Sounds like a weasly answer I know, but it is amazing how much different those will operate one system to another.
Another suggestion, color normally prints better with a PS, Post Script, driver then a PCL , driver. You may want to go ont the website for your printer and see if there is more then one driver, and switch drivers to see what happens.
Subtle differences in drivers can make a difference how printers print also.
Most of the times it's finding where your printer works best. It is not necessarly a problem if one setting works better for you over another. Just nuances on different systems.
Please don't take this as a wise comment, but that is why all those adjustments are on drivers and printers, sometimes you just have to modify to get what you really want quality wise.
Hope this helps.
