Question about Samsung CLP-510 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Colour balance I can post an image, but it won't help, because it looks OK on screen - it's the print that looks 'muddy', by which I mean the colours are darker and indistinct. I tried printing out some plain colours and they all came out dark.

    The colour profile has not changed - everything is still at 50%, I tried adjusting the contrast, brightness and saturation, but each test print comes out the same. the plain colours are Ok, but dense, but when ever there is a mix everything is dark and 'muddy' (the best word I can use to describve the effect). On screen it looks fine!

    I've tried to reproduce the image as it is printed. If I could get the printer to print lighter, it might do the trick, but no instructions seem to work (via the PC, anyway).

    Many thanks.



    How do I remove the print head? Is there an online manual I can refer to?

Looks like the printer's color profile has been changed. You can easily fix it. Open print preview and click show more options. And select a profile that suits you and print a test page.

    You can surely post a scanned image of the print.. So that i can check whether its due to printhead or something else..

    From the looks of it. It just seems like a dirty print head. take it out and expose it to steam. And dab it on a cloth to finish the cleaning process. I am hopeful that this works.

Muddy prints


I have the R2400 and the photo prints look muddy. I have tried the same picture on another printer and the colors are vibrant. Why the muddy pictures on such a nice printer?

Cannon MP600 will not print accurate photo colours


First clean and align the printer correctly.

You will need to ensure that you have selected Photo Glossy Paper for best results. You will also need to adjust the gamma settings and also play with the colour saturation controls to achieve a good colour balance that you are happy with.

Try printing a basic colour additive chart and comparing screen against printout and adjusting settings as required.

Also have a look at myPANTONE colour splash to get the definitive Pantone Colour Mixes at

or use a paint tool or PhotoShop etc to create solid colour blocks of basic colour to compare against.

How do I balance colour on the printer for photo printing?


Have the photo printer run a test/alignment page.
Make sure you are not running out of one color.
Anytime the image runs heavy on one color typically means another color is empty or low and not blending properly.

You can also check the settings to see if it is printing in Draft/Normal/Best Mode. Depends on the settings and application used to control this. Best uses more ink and of course provides the best image. Photo quality paper if you want the best looking pictures. Printing on standard bond will cause some bleeding and saturate the paper. (Looks feels wet) This will give the image a slight blurring dull look.
Depends on the quality of the paper used also.
Hope this helps!

Colours are wrong


Most likely a toner spill down the back side of the carousel. Remove all the toner and dev unit and vac out any spillage from within the printer. DO NOT VAC THE DEV OR TONER UNITS.

Replace all the units and print about 200 full colour pictures (preferably a test chart - Gretag McBeth or similar) at full size (A4). See if the colour then begins to return to normal. If not, you will probably have to replace the dev units too.

Colour Cast


Updated section
This red issue has been bugging me over the last week. I have now created over 50 A4 prints of my test file and it was after reading a post from Dan P that the answer came to me. I had been trying to correct the over saturated reds by reducing it in curves, levels and colour balance. Of course this was not the way to go, unless the image has an overall cast. The better method is to enter into Selective Colour within Photoshop and adjust just the red only. The values I have used are Cyan + 15 (this reduces the red), Magenta -5 (removes the remaining traces), Yellow +10 (removes the blue and warms up the skin again), Black -15 (lifts the image). Save the settings and reload them on future images. Create an action and use one of your Function keys to apply the Selective Colours. Incorporate the print command within the same action, this way you can be certain that the selective colour will be applied each time you print. This may not be the ideal solution, but for me it will do for the time being, until Canon come up with a new profile. I expect to make colour adjustments on most images and this is just one of those steps.
8500_06.jpg ink.jpg Use the Selective colour adjustment - it works The ink levels after 55 A4 prints - I don't think so final-test.jpg final-reels.jpg As near perfect as I can get it Reels are now spot on Note: The above solution is a work-a-round which cures the excess red, once you apply the Selective Colour adjustment the screen image will not look right. The adjustment is applied to correct the printed version. Like so many things digital (and analog) you have to make adjustments to suit your own preferences. The strong vivid colours produced by the ip8500 will appeal to some, others may want to tweak their settings.
As a final note, I have just looked at the ink levels after 55 A4 prints and wow, this printer only uses the light Cyan and Magenta, the rest of the colours are all unused. I don't think so somehow. Canon, I think this does indicate that you have a problem with the driver and have another look at the profiles while you are fixing that.
Would I buy this printer?
Given that creating a new profile is not a major problem and I am sure a new one will follow very shortly, then yes I would buy it. Using Photoshop I have managed to correct the colours to suit my taste, however, some may like the bolder colours out of the box. The ip8500 features and image quality makes this printer stand out from the competition.
Price - £329
Pros:
Excellent photographic print quality
Lots of useful features
Speed
Separate ink tanks
Compact design

Cons:
The PictBridge port can't be used to transfer images to a computer
Colour needs to be sorted out
Black plastic case that reminds me of a cats coffin.

Trouble printing to photo paper


The paper you print on is not relevant. What happens is the green tint is the actual printer delivering all the colours to give a 'composite' black. On shiny photo paper this is emphasized where as on plain paper the colour is absorbed and shows as intended. So what can you do? Move away from black and go for a tint such as sepia.

Colour problem with printer


After you scan it, do you immediately print it in an image format or do you use word? If you use word i might have a tip that might help.

Before printing, click File>print>click on "Properties" and check that the grayscale printing box isn't marked, if it is unmark it and it'll print in colour.

Also anything is that, when you're scanning. After previewing your scanned piece, double check the mode, either magazine (which is in colour), Black and white or outline (i think)

That's all i have for now.
