I have Miami Vice set on Blu-Ray from Fabulous Films. Unfortunately they added to much contrast so i wanted to restore proper colors and in MPC-HC i go to
options-->shaders and chose 0-255 to 16-235.
Now colors are good, but when i want to make screenshot of some scene in proper colors MPC-HC saves my screenshot with original to much contrasted colors. How to fix it? Thank You for help!

You could try a screen shot with another program. Try windows snipping tool if you don't have another screen grab program.Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence -Carl Sagan
Can't fix it, per se. The screenshots are pulled from the stream before it's processed (your changes above). It's how the player works.
As noted above, try using a different tool to take screenshots.
And I wouldn't exactly say you are correcting the colors. You simply don't like or agree with the how the director wanted the film to look. All movies use varying/different color pallets.Google is your Friend
Here is the screenshot from U.S version of Blu Ray (Milk Creek, correct colors)
Screenshot from U.K version (Fabulous Films)
when i change 0-255 to 16-235 colors are corrected and looks like from U.S Version.
First i tried in MPC-HC view-->renderer settings---> output range---> 16-235 but it doesn't work for me. The only way to change colors to 16-235 are shaders settings.

Odd. Reviews and comparisons seem to indicate picture quality of both releases is excellent, with the Fabulous Films version actually being a bit better.Google is your Friend
