HP Designjet 4500 Printer Series - Color Calibration

Performing color calibration

Color calibration improves color consistency between prints, and from one printer to another. It is normally performed whenever a printhead is replaced, and whenever a new paper type is introduced that has not been calibrated yet with the new printhead(s). However, this automatic behavior can be turned off, and a default color correction can be used for each of the known paper types.
  1. From the front panel, select the printer setup icon , then go to Printer configuration and select Color calibration.
    Figure : Printer Configuration
  2. The following options are available for color calibration:
    • On: The printer performs color calibration whenever a new paper type is introduced that has not yet been calibrated with the current set of printheads. The color correction resulting from the calibration is then used for subsequent prints on that paper type with the same print quality setting.
    • Off: The printer uses a default color correction, different for each paper type and print quality setting.
  3. The printer calibrates the colors by printing a calibration strip, scanning the strip with a built-in optical sensor, and calculating the color corrections required. The color calibration strip is 269 mm wide, and 18 mm long when using glossy paper. On other paper types, it is 109 mm long. Color calibration takes about 3 to 6 minutes, depending on the paper type.
    note:
    Color calibration can be requested manually at any time from the front panel, by selecting the ink system icon , then going to Printhead management and selecting the option Calibrate color.
      caution:
    Color calibration can be performed successfully on opaque materials only. Do not attempt to calibrate transparent film.
