You might need to re-calibrate your screen. Even if this is performed it's not going to be 100% accurate unless your using pms color swatch sample as a guide. I would also check and see if you're using the correct paper to your printer's settings...this also may throw off the color. Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 8920 screen image is good but prints very dark -


I'm sure you haven't used all printers. Anyway, are you printing color images such as pictures, etc. If so try using a glossy paper. The colors and images are much more true colors on glossy paper, and it don't **** up your ink.

The color is not printing true. When i print with my canon printer, colors are no where near true. I have been trying to print a red, cmyk: 0%, 100%, 100%, 10%, and the color is printing red-orange on...


We just bought one of these IX7000's. It is the usual giveth/taketh away situation. Ours prints beautifully from the paper cassette and pretty badly from any other feed (mostly the rear) you really have to wrestle with the driver if you print from the rear feed. If yours is printing badly from the cassette feed, I would say you have a problem with the clear ink. You may want to make sure it is inserted correctly and then clean the nozzles. I have found only one setting in which it will print nicely from the rear (envelope) feed. The cassette only accepts a limited number of paper sizes. I was disappointed by this. If it prints poorly from the cassette, it is either your driver settings or an issue with the clear ink feed. Maybe.

Have you heard of Wysywig? What you see is what you get?

Well on color pictures on you monitor you get wysinwyg what you see is not what you get. Monitors are backlit, so colors are much more vibrant than what a printer can generally deliver. Explore the printing properties of your priinter as there are adjustments that can be made to enable better quality and true to color prints. The paper you use to print out your pics is also important in producing color that is close to original.

When you view your pics on screen try adjusting the color hue to the point it becomes overcolored and try a few experimental prints to see what level of the slide is needed to be used to achieve a brighter more vibrant picture. I would also like to say that the Canon 210 , whilst it is a very good printer, is at the cheaper end of the photo printer scale.

Talk to your ink and paper supplier, they can often show you or recommmend printers that are much higher and more accurate in delivering brighter and true to color photos.

My xerox phaser 8560 is printing muted color


First off on your screen access troubleshooting, and perform the remove light strips and also remove smears and skips.
Next go to Xerox.com, under support and drivers enter 8560 in the search box. then go to the support page.
You want to look up the procedures for TEC color correction. And follow those steps.
If you are using a generic ink then, all bets are off in getting true color reproduction.

I don't use the color I just bought a black cartridge but it won't print unless I change the color also. Is this true or am I doing something wrong. Or do I have to also but the color cartridge.


This is true. Printer manufactorers just want you to spend money on color cartridges also. And most printers are using the color cartridge to make the print darker,

Color isn't true


You'll need to calibrate your screen and your printer - calibration is required for every set of paper and ink you use. It's quite a science and an art. I suggest you google "colour space" "printer calibration" "gamut" etc and read up on it. Alternatively you could spend a few hundred quid on a printer calibration tool, either the Colormunki or the Spyder print studio.

It still won't match perfectly, as the way color is created on a screen differs hugely for to how it is produced on paper.

Start with a properly calibrated screen first though (my money is on the Spyder elite screen calibrator and spyder print calibrator)

I'm a pro photographer and I print my own photos - full system calibration is the only way. www.yourhandinmine.co.uk

Color doesn't print in true color.


It may be the printer color settings in your printer properties. May be set to draft. Change it to best or normal.
Go to Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> right click on your printer's icon, go down to properties. There unerd advance, you can do a head cleaning. Under color management, set it to automatic.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Make it sure that ink cartridge are genuine not generic , sometime the generic ink the printer connot identify because the small chip at the back of cartridge are defferent from genuine ink.Sometime the generic can print but not true color, genuine has a perfect color and you will satified save time , money ,and effort.
