New Konica Printer not printing correct colur shades


I have been using a Konica Minolta printer 5450 to print out a variety of yellow and red images. I recently got the Konica Minolta 5650 to print out the same images. However it is printing the images at a lighter shade. I can't change the colour on the file so my only option is changing a setting on the printer.

The paper that is being used is glossy.

Can someone help by telling me what settings I need to change on the 5650 that alters the shades of colours?

SOURCE: Konica Minolta 5430DL second tray - print dialogue

This needs to be setup through the computer using the printer properties, not through the printer. You will need to be the local admin to make the changes. You may also have to go under advance and manual specify the tray and component types. The printer will not allow you to set options for trays and components that are not enabled or detected. Let me know if you need a step-by-step.

Colour printing

Hi Alan,
Please ensure that the printer driver is set correctly.
Go to your Printer & Faxes menu, right click the C250, click printing preferences, click the Quality tab and make sure Colour is selected. Apply the changes and bingo!
The above assumes you are using Windows and a PCL driver.
Hope it helps

I'm using a macintosh. I can't get any documents to print in color on the Konica Minolta Magicolor 5450. Am I missing a specific driver or what?

This is for 10.3 to 10.5, 10.6 has drivers on the install DVD
Sounds silly, but make sure you pick Colour under 'Print Settings' as it often defaults to B&W
Also try printing from TextEdit first to confirm it's not the Application that's the problem. Apps like Quark and Indesign sometimes use their own settings and PPD's
