Posterization (orangeish) when printing skin tones

I am printing nudes, and the skin tones are all posterized with orange lines. I am using Ps CS3, R2400 and Luster paper. I have printed these same prints before with no problem, so what am I missing??? I select the R2400 profile for Luster paper and have tried all the variations...Premium Luster, Premium Luster Photo, Premium Luster Best Photo...what is the difference between these?
Could setting my default printer to the R2400 help? any other suggestions?

Photos are too orange even with the paper supplied as sample and greens washed out, skin tones too orange generally speaking it appears over exposed.

Try performing a head clean. Unfortunately you don't indicate the make and model of printer so cannot advise any further.

Printing problem with Epson CX9400

I have a CX9400Fax and occassionally print is mixed/missing lines. You must do a Cleaning cycle usually at least 4-6 times or until it prints a clear pattern. It will use LOTS of ink during the cleaning cycle. The printer normally uses a lot of ink, my solution was to purchase a CISS system along with a Waste Ink Container. IMO the best CISS is sold by the company below. I did have to call for tech support once and they returned my call in 30 minutes, problem solved and never came back. I purchase refill ink and it seems that I do a lot less cleaning cycles.

Epson Stylus Photo R340 Faces in photo are printing day-glo green

Possible printhead or driver issue.
Are you using Adobe photoshop? Please try to print also using a different application to isolate the issue.
Make sure that you are using correct epson cartridges.
Please print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing colors or missing lines on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver.
If the nozzle check pattern printed out successfully, please trash and re-install the drivers. The driver is available on

11x17 Landscape will only print 1 page then switches to Portrait

I found an acceptable workaround. If I leave the paper size set to "defined by driver" in the Print dialog box and chose the paper size in the Page Set Up dialog box, that seems to do it. There were numerous complaints on the web about this and it seems to be a major glitch in CS3 with the Leopard OS.
