Question about Xerox Phaser 6100/BD Laser Printer

1 Answer

Color is lousy

Guys,
I am trying to print and all the colors are quite lousy.
Black is better than others but is also weak.
There is no notification or warning about the "toner low" situation. Moreover, the configuration page states that the toner life is normal (24 to 40% remaining, 2 or 3K).
The printer is not a new one, I bought it around 3 years ago, and printed a lot, so I suspected problem with the toner - but all the four reached their end simultaneously... sounds strange.
Any idea? What should I check?
Thanks in advance,
Micky

Go to Xerox.com and look up the knowledge base for your printer under their support section. There are several options. I would start by cleaning the ctd sensor and calibrating the colors. You could also have a worn out imaging unit or transfer belt. There are complete instructions on their website.

HP 722C has quit printing black in color draft


WORKAROUND: Select EconoFast or Draft as the print quality setting in the printer properties. This will prevent the color cartridge from being used. - Or - Try another color cartridge. The color cartridge is used to print grayscale images in Normal or Best print modes, so if one color has run out, the printout will have the wrong tint. With a full color cartridge, the colors can be properly combined to create a composite black. CAUSE: When printing with Normal or Best as the print quality setting, the HP Deskjet 710C or 720C or 722C series printer will use the color ink to improve print quality output, even when printing a grayscale image.

My hp printer casts purple to black and white prints


Tried your settings with no luck. Also tried every canon profile listed to no avail.

These are my settings:
Color management:
Color handling: Photoshop manages colors
Source space: sRGB...2.1
Printer profile: Canon MP620 Series GL2/52G
Rendering: Perpectual

Media Type: Glossy Photo paper
Print quality: standard
Effects: borderless

Printer Preferences:
Color Intensity: manual-set-everything is 0-matching:none


I am using Kodak glossy paper and I am using that setting. I am printing a digital scrapbook page with color. I used black and white pictures in the page trying to get rid of the purple trees, so it shouldn't be printing any color at all in the photos, but the limbs are still purple.

Under color settings in PSE I have checked "optimize for printing".

I am off to the store to pick up another package of photo paper..maybe HP or Epson will be better (I think those are the other 2 choices in the store)

Will check back in after I try the other papers

The printer won't print. It says replace the color ink cartridge. All I want to do is print black and white.


You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
Note: As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink

Red prints as Orange


If this is magenta being weak (light) on all the things you print (try doing a test pritn, and a configuration page from the printers own menu system). this will be the dirty laser lens/mirrors problem that is very common with this printer.

Solution is either

Dismantle (it IS quite a lot of work, but fairly straightforward methodical screwdriver work) the printer to remove the laser unit. Take cover off the laser unit and CAREFULLY clean the lenses and mirrors. NOTE take care not to disturb the alignment of any part of the laser optics, and be especially careful with the mirrors as they are surface silvered and V easily scratched.

You can find NEW laser units on a certain internet auction site, and also (genuinely) refurbished exchange printers. Both of these two opttions will obviously save time and effort, but be more expensive.

DCP 135C won't print in black


This is a generic problem for many printers. Some printers print black by 4 catridges. Try this, or it will be better that you call service support.

MFC-5100C won't print all colors...


Hello 4wards,
Try getting one of the expensive cartridges, some printers don't use all of the cheap inks, because it prints out only the acceptable colors. Get a better Ink Cartridge and it should be fine.

Hope this Helped - NeWeVoLuTioN

epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)
