When I Print the color Yellow, it's being printed as Pink.


I think you switched the ink stations. Try to switch the yellow and magenta. It also is a possibility that they are refilled with the wrong ink color. Place new ink cartridges and your problem is solved! (It can be that a few prints still show some pink color, because there is a residu of magenta in the yellow printhead)

I suspect this will be a tricky one! I am printing from a new iMac / CS5 setup. I am using OCP inks and Ilford paper. I am printing the same images to both machines. The print settings are identical....


hi Anthony, i spent a month trying to figure out a similar problem with an epson 2200. Now, the printers are different but not that much, and, the changes in paper and ink gave me "some" color issues but not as bad as what i was getting. your problem seems very similar. i run a PC so this is similar but not exactly the same. what i found was that a Magenta/ violet cast was due to double profiling. I could verify that i had the correct settings but i was wrong! I print from CS3 into the epson 2200. What i found was there is an error(no one is talking about) in the printer driver. You cannot shut off the color management completely! Assume this scenario, you are printing with CS3 applying your profile in CS3. Make the settings in CS3 as normal, then you are directed to the printer settings. Go to the print driver and make the selections for ICM Color, and select "no color". The KEY is to make sure you do this step LAST , make sure to click on the "apply" button, then "Close". Once you make the selection of "No Color" do NOT click on anything else. If you change screens in the print driver once you select "no color mgmt" the driver CHANGES your settings. ANY settings in the other pages in the print driver cause the driver to apply a printer profile, this effectively "double profiles" your photo print causing the magenta cast. None of this should happen if the driver was created correctly but there it is! It took a long time to test and verify but it is as i stated. Once i got it sorted out my photos are excellent ALL the time. Good luck, worm1855.

Colours stopped printing one by one - Epson R220


try a damp tissue on the bottom of the cartridge as there could be some ink dried up on there preventing the flow. ear buds work well to.

Epson 9800 wont print large images


Hi,

make sure that the printer is not managing color by selecting "off (no color adjustment)" in the Printer Color Management option of the printer settings.

Could be a head clog, could be ink starvation, could be head overheating...

How old is it ... ?

Fame !

Epson 7800 is printing a magenta cast


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the software install asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Epson R800 Red Color Problem


Actually magenta is the weakest compared to cyan and
yellow using even K3 inks. Now epson is releasing
K3 with vivid magenta ink. Using any color management
I have found it very difficult to reach a real red without
a lot of tweaking in my color profiles. Now it appears
that Epson sees the problem and is changing magenta
out for vivid magenta ink to solve the weak magenta.

Epson R2400 too red


i think you have a corrupted driver- you have to uninstall driver first

1. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
2. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
3. Double click on the PRINTERS folder.
4. Drag the EPSON folder to the trash can.

Go to print and fax and delete the printer name as well

Restart the Mac. (You do not need to empty the trash.)
If you have not done so already, please follow the steps below to download the latest driver for your printer in OSX:

1. Go to the following website: http://support.epson.com
2. Under the PRINTERS heading select INK JETS and then the Stylus Photo R2400.
3. Under the DRIVERS & DOWNLOADS section select MACINTOSH.
4. Select and download the following file for your operating system

which mac are you using? tiger ot leopard? intel core or powerpc?

Well, that's true you need to have an original ink to achieve the perfect color... but then its too expensive... I use "bottomless ink" search that at Google website to have an idea... so far I have perfect colors.
