Question about Gestetner DSm618 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Scanning photos from DSm618

I do not know, which settings I have to change to have pictures in real color.
I only have black and white option.
What should be changed to enable color scanning.
I use network printer and copier of this type. Sometimes I scan, but this was the first time that I tried to make color document.
I'm wondering if this scanner is installed properly? Should be in Control Panel>Scanners and cameras or not? Is it enough to have it installed as printer or I need drivers for scanner too?
Please help

No, it will not show up there. It can scan two different ways. One is the scan router program installed on your computer. The other is scan to folder via SMB. It merely is a path back to a folder.

If you go into:
user tools, system settings, administrator tools, and address book management. The settings will be in there.

You could also "web" into your machine using IE and the IP address. Login as "admin" leave password blank. Go to the address book. Email me if you need further info.

Scan color pictures


Does this problem happen when scanning either from the scanner glass or the automatic document feeder? Does this problem happen when scanning either from the computer using the Lexmark software or scanning using the Scan button on the printer operator panel? This will help me understand what might be causing this problem.

How can I print a color picture without using a black catridge?


Black ink is an essential part of the printing process. The black color is only made by the black cartridge, the color cartridge does make "black".
One or more optional photo cartridges may be available, depending on your printer model.
  • Use the photo cartridge with a tri-color cartridge for best-quality color photos and graphics, and sepia or antique photos.
  • Choose a gray photo cartridge to print black and white photos with truer grays and richer blacks.

Printing black and white photos from digitally taken colour photos


Hi Pat,

First you will have to check the Nozzle of your printer. To do this, press the setup button and select Nozzle Check. Use a plain paper to do this. Press Ok after that. It will print out a pattern for each color. Make sure that the lines are connected to each other specially for black since that you are printing a black and white photo. Lines going across is on a stair case pattern and should be connected to each other. Proceed with cleaning cycle if needed.

You can do a cleaning cycle using your printer of the computer. You can skip this if you have a good Nozzle check.

Using printer:
Press setup then select head cleaning.

Using computer.
Go to utility of the printer and find maintenance. Click on the head cleaning button.

Once that the nozzle are fine, you can now try printing. I strongly suggest that you use other application first instead of Adobe Photoshop. Since that Photoshop uses color management, it can be that the settings are incorrect. Save first the picture that you opened in Photoshop. You can save it on your desktop to easily locate the file. Make sure that the file is in jpeg format. Now to isolate the issue if it is cause by a software or not, try the standard application for your O.S.

Smaple Application:
Windows O.S. : Windows Picture and Fa Viewer
- right click on the file and select open with.
- select windows picture and fax viewer.
- folow the on screen instuctions.
Note: If you are now on the window on what pinter to use. Make sure that you set the option for printers under preferences to print in gray scale or black only. Select also the correct paper type.
- Proceed with printing.

Mac OSX: Preview or Iphoto
- open the picture under one of the application.
- click file then print.
- Make sure printer is selected.
- underneath the print option, you will have to go to print setting.
- find the option that says color then select black.
- select the appropriate settings for paper.
- the click on print.

Now see if it did print out corectly. If it did, it means that the appplication is the one causing this. If you are familiar with the color manage features of the application Photoshop. Let Photoshop handles the color. After getting to the widow what printer to use, to the the preferences of the printer and select the correct paper type. You will have to find the color management of the printer.

For Windows, It under the advance option under the main tab. Select off no color adjustment.
For Mac instead of going to print setting, find color manage and turn it off. Select off no color adjustment.

Then try printing.

Regarding your other question, If the printer is producing excess inks on your print out when ot comes to black printing and color printing, that pad needs replacement.

Can I set default printing to black and white for color laser printer?


Yes. Any printer's default options can be set as desired. Open the printer's properties (Start/Control Panel/Printers/right click the printer and left click Properties), and change the setting as you wish, then click OK. Those settings should be used each time you use the print command, unless you change the settings for that particular print job.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!
