Maximum Density Adjustment: Adjusting the Maximum Density for Y, M, C, and K

Adjust the maximum density for each of Y, M, C, and K.

Adjustment Range: -10 (Light) to +10 (Dark) for each of <Yellow>, <Magenta>, <Cyan>, and <Black>

  • The machine will carry out the Gamma Automatic Adjustment after you change the maximum density. When the Gamma Automatic Adjustment is completed, proceed to the calibration with the Image controller.

  • Be sure to perform Color Density Manual Control after changing the maximum density.

  1. Follow the procedure on Administrator Setting to display the [Administrator Setting Menu] screen.

  2. Press [System Setting] on the [Administrator Setting Menu] screen, and then press [Expert Adjustment], [Process Adjustment], and [Maximum Density Adjustment] in sequence.

  3. Select the desired density value for <Yellow>, <Magenta>, <Cyan>, and <Black>, respectively.

    • When Relay Unit RU-511 is not mounted, go to step 8.
      Density Measurement Result (Rough Value), [Measurement History], and [Print Mode] is displayed when Relay Unit RU-511 is mounted.

  4. Press [Print Mode].

  5. Select the paper tray used for adjustment, then press Start on the control panel.

    The charts are measured using the density sensor of Relay Unit RU-511 and delivered into the output tray.

  6. After outputting the charts, the screen returns to the Maximum Density Adjustment screen and the measurement result is displayed under "Density Measurement Result (Rough Value)" in the lower right of the screen.

    • Press [Measurement History] to view the measurement history (up to 30 results).

    Press [Switch Display] on the [Maximum Density Measurement History] screen to change the items in the history list (Display 1: Measurement Date and Measured Value for each color, Display 2: Paper Type and Set Value for each color).

  7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 until the desired result is obtained.

  8. Press [OK] to complete the setting.

    • To cancel the change, press [Cancel]. In either case, the screen returns to the [Process Adjustment Menu] screen.

    • If Relay Unit RU-511 is mounted, the maximum density measurement result is not saved when you press [Cancel].
