Granularity Setting

Adjust development conditions when an image noise (degradation of granularity) or sweeping (a phenomenon that causes toner to be swept to the rear edge in the paper feed direction of a halftone solid image, causing the rear edge to darken) occurs.

Each setting value is as follows. The default is set to +3(Normal). As a lower value is specified, the granularity reduces, which prevents a sweeping phenomenon.

Setting value:

+3(Normal): Sets top priority to the granularity.

+2: Sets the granularity to the middle priority level.

+1: Sets a prevention of sweeping phenomenon above the granularity.

  • If the setting is changed, Gamma Automatic Adjustment is performed when the display has returned to the normal screen.
