    Sharp developer MX-61GVCA

    Due to the many problems with the cyan developer, we are eagerly looking for loose cyan developer MX61GVCA. Sharp has a number for it, but you can only order the MX61GVSA (all colors). We now have many loose Magenta and Yellow developer. Someone a tip how we can get a loose cyan developer MX-61GVCA?

    yup black dev works.. needs a few skyshots to get the colour right but it works.
    also use the mag and yellow same way.
    Clean chargers . install yellow or mag dev in cyan unit. balance dev with 25-2 as normal. run 100 partial skyshots to get the old colour out and the new toner will slowly change it to what you need
    I fix copiers ...Well Sorta

    What the heck! I never thought of doing that before. Will try this next time we get a colour dev pull.
    I've complained to Sharp for years regarding only being able to buy sets of colour dev. They always say "it's down to the factory", "it's marketing". It's a bloody rip off.

    So what you're saying is put black developer in the colors run a bunch of sky shots after doing calibration and you get perfect color developer

    Yes this works. You can run process control and everything with black dev, as the sensors look for the coverage of toner rather than the colour. Run sky shots and after around 100 prints it will be the colour you want. Then run calibration etc to finish off.

    Ill be honest, I've been doing this for 3 years since the initial post here on copytech. I told my boss who was skeptical. Once when we ran out of color DV packets, I asked if I can use this method, and was given the go ahead.

    It worked.

    My God he was ecstatic, he went home, did some calculations on savings for color DV and gave me a permanent raise.

    Yes, I got a raise.
