    I just purchased a mutoh 1204 48" and i am having problems with getting color correct. RED seems to be the hardest it is either too dark or orange. Does anyone have any suggestions.
    Thanks

    Yeah, I had that problem too . . . Until I started using Roland Colour Choice which came with my Roland.

    I don't know what to tell you with Flexi and your Mutoh !

    Did it come with a rip program ?

    If you are using Flexi 8 and running on the 1204 VJ Try using either the Mutoh One in All preset or the Oracal 3651 Preset. I prefer the Mutoh All in One profile, much more.

    Also you need to check that if you are trying to print vector images, then you need to make sure to set your Vector Settings correctly.

    Open Rip & Print
    Go to the Advance tab
    make sure you have your profile preset
    Click on Color Settings
    Click the rendering intent tab
    Change Vector, Text & Gradients, to NO COLOR CORRECTION
    leave everything else alone and give it a try.

    Let me know
