You can specify whether or not to use the Color Matching function, which adjusts the printers color tones to accurately reproduce the color tones of the monitor. Choices Off Does not use color matching. With certain applications, such as desktop publishing applications, data is color-matched to be the most suitable for the printer. If this type of output setting is used in the application, Color Matching should be turned off. On Uses color matching. If On is selected, Images (bitmap image data such as photos), Graphics (graphic data such as drawings) and Text (text data such as written documents) can be set to one of the three color conversion methods*: ! Perceptual: This method is most suitable for photographic images. With this method, the data is smoothly reproduced with minimal brightness variations. ! Saturation: This method is most suitable for business presentations and other similar applications. With this method, the data is reproduced with more vivid tones. ! Colorimetric: This method can be used for any type of application. The data is reproduced with the tones of the original image. However, when data is reproduced on the monitor and the color of some areas cannot be expressed accurately or with the printer colors, those colors are replaced with the closest printer color, so that the difference in the color of those areas is not noticeable.
The ICM color profile, which is automatically defined when the driver is installed, is used and a color conversion is made in the driver so that sRGB colors can be output. sRGB is a general Windows color space with the color space international standard (IEC61966-2-1) defined by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). There are also additional ICM profiles available on the Utilities and Documentation CD-ROM for specific applications, such as Photoshop. Refer to the readme on the CD-ROM for more information. * Colors that can normally be displayed on the monitor include many vivid or bright colors that cannot be reproduced by with the printer. In this case, the colors are compressed with the perceptual, saturation, or colorimetric method to convert them to colors that can be reproducedby the printer.

Auto-Image Density Control (AIDC)
The printer periodically pauses for the color calibration procedure (also known as the Auto-Image Density Control [AIDC] cycle). This process is provided to make sure reliable printer operation with optimum output quality. This 150-second calibration cycle automatically occurs after the installation of a new toner cartridge or OPC drum cartridge.
If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator goes off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.
The printer also pauses to do a 90-second AIDC cycle after 200 1-sided pages of a continuous print run, and a 150-second AIDC cycle when waking up from ENERGY SAVER with more than 1,000 pages since the last AIDC cycle or when there has been an environmental change such as in temperature or humidity.
Toner Cartridge Life
A high-capacity toner cartridge contains enough toner (yellow, magenta, cyan, or black) to print a maximum of 4,500 (at normal 5% page coverage) simplex letter/A4-size pages of continuous print. The standard-capacity toner cartridge contains enough toner to print a maximum of 1,500 (at normal 5% page coverage) simplex letter/A4-size pages of continuous print. With heavier coverages, the approximate maximum capacities will decrease:
How do I know if I need to replace the toner?
When its time to replace the toner, COLOR Toner Low displays in the Status Display. Printing can continue even though the warning appears. However, the color gradually fades out, so replace the toner cartridge as soon as possible. You can also access the toner cartridge supplies status using the Status Display (refer to Working with the Status Display on page 40).
How can I tell if a toner cartridge is standard or high capacity?
Refer to the label on the toner cartridge.
Failure to follow instructions as outlined in this manual could result in voiding your warranty.
Refilled Toner Cartridges
Do not use refilled toner cartridges. Any damage to the printer or quality problems caused by a refilled toner cartridge will void your warranty.
Replacing a Toner Cartridge
Characters and images are created in your laser printer through a photosensitive process that applies toner to the Optical Photo Conductor (OPC) drum cartridge (which functions like photographic film). Your printer uses four toner cartridges: black, yellow, magenta, and cyan. Handle the toner cartridges carefully to avoid spilling toner inside the printer or on yourself.
The toner is nontoxic. If you get toner on your hands, wash them in cool water or a neutral detergent. If you get toner on your clothes, lightly dust them off as much as possible. If some toner remains on your clothes, use cool, not hot water, to rinse the toner off.
