CANON IMAGERUNNER ADVANCE: FIXING MAC OS X PRINT QUALITY VIA (*) SETTINGS/REGISTRATION

I was working on a mac os x machine today. It had an issue printing colors accurately to a canon imagerunner advance c250if. The canon had some color issues but we had to first figure out what was the driver and what was the printer.

1. we connected a mac os x machine up and a window os machine to the same network…
2. we compared apples to apples. we printed the same documents in the same programs…
3. we then checked to see what was caused by the print drivers and what was caused by the machine.j
4. we then started messing with the driver in the machines… got them to print in color and black and white…
5. we then figured anything that both computers were doing was caused by the printer… and anything different was the print driver
6. we then began toying with the print driver settings on the copier…
steps…
a. (*) settings/registration>function>printer>custom settings>
b. pick ufr II, pcl or ps (whichever corresponds to your print driver)
c. you are going to play with matching method
d. three settings Perceptual, Saturation, Colorimetric
e. change the setting print… then compare…
f. for me changing ufr II matching method from perceptual to colorimetric got my print quality fairly close to whats on the computer monitor screen
