It's never going to be perfect (unless the background is quite light in colour), because the copier basically "sees" the coloured background as "gray", and the darker the background the more "gray" it looks. Try setting the original type to "photo" mode, and then adjusting the exposure a little lighter/darker....that's all you can basically do.

Try a hard reset of the printer and see if that does it.

Cutting off the bottom 1/2 inch of 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper.


Notice where the metal retainer beneath the glass cuts off the view of your document you wish to copy
and make allowances on your copy. Most printers disallow some portion of the edges of any document
for handling the transport of the document through the feeder, or in the cases of contact copiers, a portion
of the sheet as you have experienced, so that the edges need not be so carefully adjusted to avoid the dark
line in edge copied formats.

Format all documents so that you do not need to copy the portion excluded.

Sometimes this can be accomplished by reducing the size of the document.

My MFC 5890 cn Brothers printer paper keeps getting jamed and won


Hi there,

What kind of paper are you using?

Normal paper or Photo Glossy paper?

If you use Photo Glossy Paper, you have to put at least two sheets of paper. If you read the photo glossy paper instructions that came in the package you will see it.
The package brings one sheet more than mentioned because of this specification.

Dark background print in minolta EP2050 mach.


Replace controller/ interface board. The next step would be the regulator board. If you must keep resetting the ATDC and receive different values ( assuming that the ATDC is new) then the problem is back. What supplies/ controls the ATDC? The controller, but forgive me if I am wrong, there is a small interface board after the controller that the ATDC is plugged into.

Extra background color in my printing


You really should not run labels through this machine unless they are full sheets. If you are running used pages the glue will build up on the tranfer belt and cause the hazing.

Color transparencies are dark & poor color


Hello,

Nice printer.. Hope this will give hints. Considering transparency papers, please try another batch of or a piece of transparency paper. Try to adjust also the graphics preferences (dark to light) aside from transparency paper selection. Have a nice day.

Best regards,
