Question about Xerox DocuColor 12 Printer

1 Answer

Dirty output on smooth colours

While printing fountain fills in Corel Draw or shadows, gradients print dirty, a very pale pink colour may print as it would be grey. The final white colour in a gradient print grey. So very nice pictures print very bad. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for Your time, jbussine! If I could perform a calibration I would, but it has no scanner and there are no chances to find an attachable external calibrator in the place and around. Thought that it could be an issue already fixed by smbd. Will be digging on.

Ok need a little more specifications :) after researching the product a bit there seems to be a few variables. Such as if you are using the Splash server, Fiery Server or the Matchprint Professional server.

This is the link to the support page for your product,/?LBound=1@31,St=322,E=0000000001440901325,K=8114,Sxi=5,t=Browse.tem,varset=CFROM:31

what i could find is that it sounds like you will have to perfrom a colour calibration for the printer to correct the colour issues. Once again the instructions vary depending on the server your using.

This link is to the "how to perform a colour calibration" section for your printer,/?St=24,E=0000000001440901835,K=8114,Sxi=9,UseTemplate=Browse.tem,Remove=All,Problem=obj(8226),Query=%22%22,VARSET_RestrictFolderSearch=Perform_Color_Calibration_DC12

you will have tofind the correct entry that matches the tool set that you are using.

Best of luck

Why xerox phaser 6360dn is printing only pink

Anonymous, Have you tried to print the test print, is that Pink?
Have you tried too print the configuration sheet, is that Pink?
Have you tried to run purge sheets are they Pink?
If the answer is yes to all the above then has the printer been moves whilst still hot or warm, you could have mixed the colours.
If all the colours were mixed together then you would have a dark dirty Brown. Further investigation needed.
Good Luck.

HP 9050 with smeared or Ghosted print on the leading edge

Your printer might have dust on the hexagonal mirror and other optical components inside the LSU (Laser System Unit). If the printer it's dirty inside, all that dust flows and lay down on components. In course of time, it reaches the optical components and generates a "gradient wiped out" image from left to right as you are looking at the printed page. This problem is common on laser printers. On colour printers, you may find that only one or more colors have this gradient wiped out. Because they have separate Laser System Units.

Oki not printing pink

Seen this many times. Its because you are using recycled drums and/or toner. With the genuine items you will find the magenta will be more red than pink.

We have a HP Color Laserjet 3600 printer. Printing a text, the right side is very pale. Printing pictures, they turn out unclear with strange colors. We have new cartridge

The laser unit on your machine may be dirty,

The first colour that normaly goes fuzzy is the red.

The problem may also be on your fuser unit,

Rub your finger over the printed area, and if the image gets smudged the fuser unit isnt fusing the toner proprly
