Adjusting Gradation

Gradation refers to the dark to light continuum of shades of a color. The more shades in the gradations of colors that are printed, the more natural printouts seem. If color reproducibility becomes poor and the density and brightness of printouts differs markedly from the originals, perform the appropriate adjustment (calibration).
Frequent calibration may affect the lifetime of toner cartridges.
When the remaining amount of toner in cartridges is low, performing calibration may result in disruption of color balance. If this phenomenon actually occurs after calibration, it is recommended that you replace any toner cartridges of low remaining amount. Checking the Remaining Amount of Consumables
The machine performs automatic adjustment (automatic calibration) in accordance with changes in the usage condition or environmental conditions.
