Color washed-out immediately after heat-press

I use Insta machine, temp. set at 350F, and use teflon sheet below and above the transfer paper. Color of the t-shirt is washed-off (lighter) on the area not covered by transfer paper.
Any suggestion or trick to solve this problem.

Did the color correct itself after the shirt cooled? The first few dark shirts I pressed did that.

Actually it was Rhinestone heat press. Color is not corrected by itself. It remains darker under the area of sticky plastic sheet and visibly lighter the whole outside area.
