Question about Konica Minolta bizhub C250 All-In-One Laser Printer

This is a c253 problem with negative images

I have a c253 that produces a negative image when running prints from indesign. The copier is equipted with the ic-409 controller(fiery). i have put all the patches on the controller. No other images from any other program seem to have the problem. is there a setting in indesign that could cause this? The image seems to more prevelant when you have a solid color background and white lettering. It also seems to repeat itself.

    i have also printed this same file on another c253 without the ic-409 and it printed fine

    I am apologizing for not putting enough information on my original posting. I am using the correct drivers for the fiery. I also sent the job from command workstation and converted it to a pdf. I disconnected the fiery and ran the same print job through the emperon controller. The ghosting problem is still there just not as noticable. I said i had run the same job on another c253 and the ghosting was not there, but i was wrong. It was harder to see. I ran the same job on a c451,c10 and a c6500 and the ghosting was gone. Possibly a c253 problem??

It sounds like a driver issue to me. Are you sure you are using the correct driver?
Check the other computer that it printed fine from and compare settings/PPD.
You can also do a collect from both InDesigns and review the report file to see any differences.
There is a totally different driver that needs to be used if a Fiery is installed.

Also, you final line in the first posting sounds more like a "ghosting" issue and not an application issue.

I would deffinately identify the driver, you can download the driver files from the IC-409 by typing in the IP address in your browser and clicking on the "Webtools" logo. A pop-up will apear giving you access to the drivers and Command Workstation.
Have you tried opening and re-submittin g the file from Command Workstation?
You could also PDF the file and see if you get the same results, this will identify if it actually is an InDesign issue.

Konica C253 no network settings


If you have a Fiery rip fitted to the machine then the standard network settings in the admin menu will not be there.
you need to click on the (i) icon on the front screen of the copier and this will open the fiery menu.

from there you can select print pages>config page and find all the details you need.

hope this helps

I need 100% black high density prints from mac and InDesign/illustrator to make film positives for screen printing. What can I do or adjust to accomplish this? Thank you


Is it a text or an image or...?
If its just a jpeg you are putting through indesign, test its 100% K value using the dropper tool and hovering over the image.
If its text, or indesign generated,make sure the fill you use is 100% black, not 50% blue, 50% black which is often the default. Again, check the final using the dropper before you export the pdf.
I'm not sure exactly what your application is, but often for screenprinting, people duplicate the image....so for instance two acetates of the same image one on top of the other to maximise the density....a friend of a friend apparently even uses 4 acetates layered up to be absolutely certain.

Canon IR C-4580 with Fiery controller


No, but the fiery will just speed up your prints etc.. I have the c3380 and c5185, they are stand alone with no fiery. If you are buying this machine for office coping it will be fine. But remember! this is a Buisness Color machine. In my customer base the 80's have done well as long as you run them as an color machine and not the office black and white work hourse. The color prints are great without any help from fiery. Sales people will try to sell you all!!!!

Hello a Fiery print controller is basically a computer, which needs to be rebooted once a week to get rid of temp. files. Try shutting down each fiery every Friday and restarting Monday morning and your problems will be resolved. What model Fiery's do you have (IC-408, IC-901),? let me know which model and I can see if their is a patch to correct this issue. dave.herron@att.net PS: I am full line KonicaMinolta dealer
