    Calibration will not fix your problem

    Print test pattern 11 from diagnostic for each color at 70% (cmyk).

    I think you have a problem with the yellow regulator or drum unit, I would check that first before calibrating, so that the machine has good quality, all its components have to be fine














    thanks

    You are definitely right! All yellow prints appear "dark", not vivid. The developers have never been changed, except the black it was changed last year. Do you advise me to replace only the yellow Developer or also M and C?

    all the consumables have a useful life, that you can see the counter of each consumable to see if america changed, to see how the other colors are, send a cmyk file at 50% on a 33x48 paper and there you will see everything that fails














    thanks
