PIXMA ip8720 Tone slider control

brassman

A 2014 review of the PIXMA ip8720 mentioned a Tone slider that imparts degrees of warm tones to grayscale prints. The Tone slider is in the Manual Color Adjustment window under the cyan, majenta, yellow sliders. I never thought to use it before reading the review. But It cannot be used anyway on my printer because it's greyed out. Can this be fixed?

I did all that you've suggested which I've done before and the 'Tone' slider is still greyed out. The 'intensity' & 'contrast' sliders work fine and always have. I didn't inquire about those. The 'tone' slider I did. Thanks any way. I will contact Canon support.
