I would really recommend a service call.
There is a procedure called Max Setup that has to be run from a service laptop.
What it does is first adjust the white reference point on the machine, then used a test pattern to correct any color errors that are remaining.
The only other thing to do is power off and power in the machine and make the software reset and go through a startup setup
I highly suspect you need to have the proper setups done.
You may also have a bad imaging unit or transfer unit.
I doubt anything routene you can do will correct it.

Canon MF3110 - Copy problems When we try to copy a document it comes our blurry, yet if we send a document from computer software it comes out fine.


Try reinstalling the driver first. If that does not work, the issue is with the scanning hardware, which will have to be calibrated. Try doing a calibration of your scanner from the tool box first. If that doesnt work either, then it is definitely scanner hardware defect.

If your all in one is under warranty, I'd recommend you contact the point of sale of the manufacturer. Unfortunately, if your warranty has run out, you will either have to get it serviced or buy a new machine (whichever works out cheaper)

Hope that helps!

Lexmark X5100 printer. I copied a small item 3x3 and doubled its size. Now when I try to copy a full page only one small corner is reproduced. It appears I lost a default setting. How do I get a full page...


If you are using your All-In-One without it being attached to a computer and scanning a document that is getting cut off on the edges:
1 Move the document to a different place on the glass.
2 On the operator panel, press the Reduce/Enlarge button
repeatedly until Fit to Page appears.
3 Press Select.

If you are using your All-In-One attached to a computer:
1 Move the document to a different place on the glass.
2 From the software, select a copy setting with autocrop on (Color Photo or Black and White Photo) to make sure that autocrop finds the object and prints it completely.

1 From your desktop, double-click the Lexmark X5100 Series
All-In-One Center
icon. The All-In-One Main Page appears.
2 Click Preview Now to see your scanned image.
3 Select a quantity and color for your copies.
Note: To choose a paper size or further customize your copy
job, click See More Copy Settings.
4 Click Copy Now.

Note: When autocrop is on, the object (wherever it is placed
on the glass) will be printed in the upper left corner of the
page. This might make your copy look different from the
original.

try the above and post back so I know if your issue is fixed or you need more assistance

Oh, it's the colors you are having a problem with. Then you probably want to perform an Auto Gradation Adjustment. It's on pages 162-163 of the manual found here: http://download.support.xerox.com/pub/docs/DocuColor_3535/userdocs/any-os/en/3535_User_Guide.pdf

Here is what it says:

Auto Gradation Adjustment
Auto Gradation Adjustment is a color calibration for the copier and printer. An Auto Gradation Adjustment compensates for differences between the actual and the expected toner densities for each color. An Auto Gradation Adjustment should be performed whenever there is a noticeable change in the appearance (quality) of the output, particularly changes in color
tones or densities. Performing an Auto Gradation Adjustment on a regular basis will help to maintain consistent color quality over time.

NOTE: Since an Auto Gradation Adjustment can affect all jobs for all users, it is recommended that this procedure be performed only by the Machine Administrator.

Copy Job - Text Compensates tones when a text original is copied.
Copy Job - Photo Compensates tones when a photo original is copied.
Print Job Compensates tones when printing with controller line screen.
Network Controller - 1 Compensates tones when printing with Network Controller screen type 1.
Network Controller - 2 Compensates tones when printing with Network Controller screen type 2.

NOTE: Printing the chart for Auto Gradation does not increase the meter count.
NOTE: When gradation adjustment is executed, the following
changes will be made to default copy settings set in System Settings mode: Copy density = Normal or Auto, Color Shift = Normal, Saturation = Normal, Color Balance = 0, Sharpness = 0.
NOTE: When Print or Network Controller gradation adjustment is executed, the printer’s output profiles for the available screen types are compensated.

1 On the Image Quality Adjustment screen, select Auto Gradation Adjustment.
2 Load 8.5x11 inch or A4 paper into Tray 5 (Bypass). Move the paper guide to gently touch the edge of the paper.

3 Select the desired gradation adjustment screen:
• Copy Job - Text
• Copy Job - Photo
• Print Job
• Network Controller - 1
• Network Controller - 2
Press Start. The Adjustment Chart is output.
4 Place the Adjustment Chart face down on the Document Glass with both Magenta color patches against the left side of the glass.
5 Place 5 sheets of white paper on top of the Adjustment Chart and close the DADF. Select Start.
6 To continue Auto Gradation Adjustment with other screens, repeat steps 2 to 5. When you are finished, select Close until the System Settings screen is displayed.
7 Select Exit to exit the System Settings mode.
