Darker pantones printing too dark

#1 info9256 8 months ago

Hello. I have a latex 700W and noticed my colors were wandering a bit. I ran a color calibration and re-printed a Pantone test chart (matte SAV - 8 pass). Most of the newly printed colors are very close to my Pantone guide again. However, the darker Pantone colors are printing too dark (almost black). I still have my original baseline Pantone test chart that I printed when I first ran this profile. This baseline print is very accurate throughout the range of Pantones including the darker colors. As another reference, my cool and warm greys are out slightly as well (see photos). Any suggestions on how to lighten the darker colors, or do you think something else is out of adjustment? Thanks.
