Saved illustrator 10 file gets corrupted

Check for a damaged pattern, gradient, or custom color
To determine if the problem is caused by a damaged pattern, gradient, or custom color:

1. Choose Edit > Select All and change the fill and stroke to process black.
2. Perform task 4 again to determine whether the problem occurs in a new file that does not contain the patterns, gradients, or spot colors. If the problem does not recur, re-create the pattern, gradient, or spot color in the original file.

I cannot use fill colour for shapes, text boxes etc on either Word or Publisher -Office 2007 I click on fill colour but shape remains blank - a series of dots do appear around the shape.

Apply a different shape fill You can fill a selected shape (such as data markers, titles, data labels, or a legend) with a solid color, gradient, picture, or texture. You cannot use shape fill to format lines in a chart (such as gridlines, axes, trendlines, or error bars).

On a chart, click the chart element that you want to change, or do the following to select it from a list of chart elements:
  1. Click a chart. This displays the Chart Tools, adding the Design, Layout, and Format tabs.
  2. On the Format tab, in the Current Selection group, click the arrow next to the Chart Elements box, and then click the chart element that you want to use.
On the Format tab, in the Shape Styles group, click Shape Fill

  1. Do one of the following:
    • To use a different fill color, under Theme Colors or Standard Colors, click the color that you want to use. Tip Before you apply a different color, you can quickly preview how that color affects the chart. When you point to colors that you may want to use, the selected chart element will be displayed in that color on the chart.
    • To remove the color from the selected chart element, click No Fill.
    • To use a fill color that is not available under Theme Colors or Standard Colors, click More Fill Colors. In the Colors dialog box, specify the color that you want to use on the Standard or Custom tab, and then click OK. Custom fill colors that you create are added under Recent Colors so that you can use them again.
    • To fill the shape with a picture, click Picture. In the Insert Picture dialog box, click the picture that you want to use, and then click Insert.
    • To use a gradient effect for the selected fill color, click Gradient, and then under Variations, click the gradient style that you want to use. For additional gradient styles, click More Gradients, and then in the Fill category, click the gradient options that you want to use.
    • To use a texture fill, click Texture, and then click the texture that you want to use.
Tip If you don't like the change that you made, you can undo it immediately. On the Quick Access Toolbar, click Undo default.aspx?assetid=za101819851033, or press CTRL+Z.

Hello, I have a problem with my c3200! looks like yellow, and color looks faded. The image I'm trying to print looks all faded. Any help would be great thank you for your time

Try running the gradient/color adjuster (do a full test). It's in Additional Functions screen.
The C3200 series is known for this and many other issues. Most of the customers that I met has since switched to a Xerox color machine that has much better results (Docucolor series for print shop/marketing type work, and the WorkCenter 7600 series for high end office work. Both same body design, different engine/system software)

Different color test patterns keep cycling .

This could be a computer or monitor problem. The reason that display shows up is because the monitor is not getting a power good signal from the computer. If a monitor doesn't get a power good signal it goes into test mode. It could be the monitor has a fault that is not allowing it to detect the computer, or the video card or computer itself isn't functioning properly. If you can, hook the monitor to a computer that you know is working properly. This will tell for sure if it is the monitor or not, and eliminate that possiblity. Then you will know if it is the monitor or computer. If the computer is the problem you'll need more help troubleshooting it.

Severe gradient issues / problems with darker grays

So your sure when you go into the monitor settings, and color, it is set to like 9300k or something? It probably isn't the monitor, because the video games you said display just fine.
