I have a Xerox C60/C70 with an external fiery computer and when I print a file the color is not consistent across the page. One side has a green shade to it (which is how it should be) and the other side has a magenta shade on it. I had a tech come out and look at it, and he said there is nothing he can do? Anyone have any other ideas?
Rotate the image 180. If the output is identical, it is software/calibration.
If it shifts differently, the Fiery isn't the issue, it is the hardware.
For software, try running SIQA and a calibration.
For hardware, start with the SCSI cable (reverse it would be step one, so plug the end from the Fiery into the IOT and vice versa)
If it is one file, the file is the issue.
Quick and dirty would be to confirm Let printer determine color is selected, or choose Print as image in Acrobat/reader (This one should fix it, but it will negate the printer determines color selection).
But it sounds like a transparency in the file, so if pdf, start exporting/saving as pdf/x (I suggest pdf/x3 for wide Compatibility), or manually start flattening your files beforehand. But these methods don't work if you aren't the graphic designer and don't have the original files.
Thank you again for your help and suggestions. I started to lean toward it being the file as well until I printered the file on another identical printer and the file printed correctly. This printer is under contract with a company and I've had their techs out several time and they still do not know what is wrong, they are headed out again today to swap some parts out. I think that it is a hardware issue. I will post again once I have an answer from them.
