  • Page 118: Calibration Overview

    Calibration Overview One of the most important issues in obtaining satisfactory print quality is steady toner density. Toner density is affected by many factors such as heat, humidity, and service settings. You should perform a daily calibration to compensate for these factors. The calibration process corrects the printer colors by measuring their density and creating calibration look-up tables.
  • Page 119: Defining The Calibration Device

    Defining the Calibration Device Defining the Calibration Device If you have the basic or Control Station configuration, you can only calibrate using the scanner calibration method. If you have the Pro configuration, the default calibration mode is scanner calibration.
