Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
Hiya - just boughta 2605 for printing out DTP layouts. Cant get print density settings right. no matter the setting, seems too much magenta in pictures, and not enough magenta in flat coulours - a 20% magenta 20% cycan mix looks totally cyan, Please help. Anyone have "optimum" print density (slider) settings for a new 2605? Thanks!
Well, the density is actually a combination of two aspects. The original document settings, especially in color transforms. Usually, the software will have a transform specific for the printer. In my experiences, trying to tweak the printer for each print job, can cause extreme frustration. Check the software manual for settings for your printer, and perhaps you'll get closer to this solution.
