This issue can happen after the initial set up of the printer or when the machine has been physically moved. Switch the printer off, wait for few minutes, and turn the machine back on. This procedure will prompt the printer to conduct color calibration. Check if the issue has been corrected, otherwise, try to conduct the color calibration from the operation panel. However, the manual color calibration steps from the control panel are more complex and can affect the printer settings. We recommend contacting a technician or emailing us at for direct assistance.

Dirty Edge

Pull out the paper transfer unit. Clean the paper ramp using a soft, dry, and lint free cloth. Be careful not to touch the black transfer roller and black transfer belt during the cleaning process.
