Re: RED WON'T PRINT
Try running a head cleaning from your computer, if you are using XP go to printers and faxes under control panel and right click on your printer icon then go to printing preferences then go to maintenance and run head cleaning cycles for 3x then print a nozzle again. if all fails cal epson and check for the warranty so that you can have it replace, coz chances are the nozzle for magenta is clog.

A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below: 1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab. 2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks." Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page. The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps. If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below: 1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab. 2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer. 3. Get a damp paper towel. 4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds. 5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. 6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing. 7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer. 8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install." 9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.
Run a nozzle check to see if all inks are printing out. Turn printer off, then hold down the paper button ( top ), while holding it down, press and hold the power button. When you see the power light flashing green, release both buttons. It should print a nozzle check pattern. You should see 7 columns of different colored lines and one checkered board pattern. There should be no gaps and breaks on the lines. If pattern is no good, you need to do head cleaning.Press the ink button for 3 seconds. Power light will flash and print head will move. This will take one to two minutes. After it is complete ( power light turns solid green ) you need to do a nozzle check pattern to verify if there is improvement or If head cleaning needs to be repeated.
Hi, To ensure this is only an issue with the black, I recommend printing off a nozzle check. This will show you if this problem is effecting any of the other colours.
To print a nozzle please refer to chapter 12 page 115 of the manual,
If colours are missing I recommend cleaning the print head. You have two options for cleaning the print head a normal clean and a deep clean, start by doing a normal clean if required try doing a deep clean.

your problem is about profiles. The gutenprint is the only way to print from intel to r1800, but this driver don't use the same ICC profiles. You have to use one of three solutions below: 1 the best, you have a profile calibrating device, you make a profile of your couple ink-paper and you convert your document into this ICC profile. 2 you convert your picture into your software in one of the Epson generic profiles (hey probably still are on your computer) and you print whithout color managment 3 (awful) you anticipate the color distorsion and you tune your picture to be bad on the screen but pretty good on paper.
