Lexmark CX8xx and XCxxxx: A Box Color or Shading Effect Around Embedded Images Within Microsoft PowerPoint

Affected Products:

Multifunction: CX820, CX825, CX827, CX860, XC6152, XC6153, XC8155, XC8160 and XC8163

Application: Microsoft Power Point

Issue Description:

When printing imageswithin 'Microsoft PowerPoint', a box surrounding embedded images that differs in color or shade from the background.


  1. Access the printer's embedded web server; i.e., http://printer's_IP_Address.

  2. Under Settings, click Print.

  3. Under Quality, click Advanced Imaging.

  1. Under Color correction, select Manual.

  2. Set RGBImage, Text and Graphics to sRGB Vivid.


If necessary, toggle between all sRGB Display and all sRGB Vivid to compare print output. Results may vary based on the source image and background characteristics within Microsoft's PowerPoint application.


By design, the default color table for images (sRGB Display) differs from that used for the text and graphics (sRGB Vivid). As such, images may show up a slightly different color or shade from the background graphic object. In this example, the differing settings caused a different shade of the same color.

Adjusting the defaults to use the same color table for images, text, and graphics can alleviate this issue; or for one job only, you can optionally change these equivalent settings in the driver.
