Adjust the contrast through the printing preferences in the driver window (control panel, printers and faxes), can you tell me from what program are you printing from? and what kind of file (jpeg,raw,tiff) are you printing?

I have an Epson R1800. I purchased it a few years back and have just now installed the inks and put it to use. I downloaded the latest drivers from Epson. I am using Win 7-64 bit. Everything i print is way...


Hello.

If you have not used the ink for several years, chances are they have dried out. They have a certain shelf life and have an expiration date (usually written on the cartridge package).

Buy a new set of ink cartridges for your printer and see if there is any difference.

Hope this helps.

Epson Stylus R1800 is not printing correctly. It is skipping spots leaving clear areas across the page. Changed all the cartridges.


your problem is not with the inks it is with the printhead... try running the maintenance and head cleaning... epson is notorious for print heads getting clogged!! good luck

Dark prints when printing from my Imac using Leopard


I was also having problems with my Epson scanner on my iMac. I read that the best way to solve Epson's problems is to (1) uninstall all Epson software from your HD, and (2) download the appropriate drivers from Epson and install them.

Note: The Epson R1800 has two drivers: the most recent is an update. So, you must first download and install the Printer Driver v6.12. When that's done, then download and install Printer Driver Update v1.02.

I did that and I still got dark prints. Then I got an inspiration. In the Print dialogue box, I changed my Printer Profile to the paper I was using, Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper, instead of using sRGB and/or Adobe RGB. Specifically, I used SPR1800 PrmLstr PhotoRPM.icc. The next test print was virtually spot on to what was displayed on the screen. I am now a VERY happy camper.

Please pass this info onto anyone else who can use it.

Printing too dark


Check the properties of the printer in Windows, make sure it's not using any odd color profiles. My Epson uses E411__1 as it's color profile. There might also be brightness and contrast sliders in the printing preferences that you can adjust or return to default.

Image and text printed multiple times and are overlapping


Is the R1800 the only printer that you have on ythis mac?

If it is make sure it is directly connected to your mac via a USB or Firewire cable.

Trash epson folder from Mac HD-Library- Printers
Delete Epson printer utility from Mac HD- Application folder( if you have both delete both icon.

Under prnter setup utility delete the r1800 printer

Go to finder click on file the find, type com.apple.print, if it find anything drag it all on the trash, it will not disappear from the window ( the prefs and . cache files)

download the latest driver for your r1800 from epson website
epson12113.dmg - 10.3MB - posted on 12/20/

then reinstall it, after reinstalling try to readd th printer and make sure under print using it will say Epson SPR1800 series. If you see guten print/ that is a third party driver. dont use the gutenprint. then try to print, update me for the outcome

Photoshop and the R1800


I had the same problem and read everything I could find about it. Finally after tinkering around, I discovered that printing everything using "Photo Enhance" setting produced the best pictures. Also, I use a calibrated monitor and print through Photoshop Elements 5. Lots of Luck! Cyndy

Epson r300 photos print very dark


I had a problem with my colour. I discovered that I had left the tab covering one of the holes on at the top of the of one of the cartridges. Suggest that you check all the cartridges again. Hope that this helps
