    New C458 with washed out colors

    This machine has 10,000 copies on it. When it was installed it looked fine, now all colors are washed out. I tried a K drum and an HV Bd but neither helped. Gradation Adjust hasn't made any difference. Has anyone seen anything like this?

    I'm sure I must have missed something, what's wrong with the image? Looks ok except some highlights like 10 and 5%.

    Looks like all colors are faded a bit. I'm curious why you choose to change K drum?
    Did you check voltages and sensor readings in SM, anything outside normal range?
    Toner save mode on?

    Print another and put back in tray and print another on the back side.
    If it's a better saturation then you probably have humid paper.
    Run a couple toner add cyxcles,
    Background data Reset and stabilize, run all gradations 3 times each and recheck.
    Let us know.

    Tsbservice was right, Toner Save was on.
