imageCLASS MF8280Cw Software & Color Issues


My friend gifted me a MF8280cw color laser printer.  I do have a few questions and I've had no luck with google.

1- Is there a utility app for this printer?  I downloaded the Mac driver but I can't seem to find a utility.

2- I am having difficulty with color printing.  the image is printing mostly without yellow toner until it gets to the bottom of the image.  Toner amounts all say 'OK'

3- I keep getting failures on 'color correction' commands.  Regardless of what color correction commands I ask, it always says 'failed'  ?

Thanks for any help you can provide.  I'm getting frustrated with it lol




Thanks for posting!

While our Forum Community members are welcome to chime in, the Canon Color imageCLASS MF8280Cw has been retired. That means we do not offer support for the printer or updated drivers. We recommend updating to a more modern printer and reaching out to our Canon Upgrade Program specialist who will go over the best options for upgrading your printer. They can be reached at 866-443-8002.

Agree with Arthur. The  imageCLASS MF8280Cw is an old unit. If it is experiencing operational issues, consider upgrading. The imageCLASS MF743Cdw would be the current equivalent.
