The main color issues are the grays need to be more brown, and the purples need to be less blue. I have been trying driver tweaks but have not had any luck so far.
If you know how to color balance...

􀂃 The ACC is usually sufficient to adjust the color balance to get the best print output. You
only need the printer gamma correction to fine-tune to meet user requirements.
Use SP modes if you want to modify the printer gamma curve created with ACC. You can adjust
the gamma data for the following:
􀂃 Highlight
􀂃 Middle
􀂃 Shadow areas
􀂃 IDmax.
The adjustable range is from 0 to 30 (31 steps).
Copy Mode

Page 4-177 in the Service Manual. If you don't know how a color wheel works, you see adjust color in the user tools. but that will go away once you calibrate.
