I haven't had this problem until recently. When I print out a photo on regular paper it prints fine (color is o.k.), but when I put in glossy paper, the image turns very red. It adds way too much magenta. What's the problem? Again, this problem just started a week ago.

Re: Printing from a Mac
Check your printers colour settings. They may have been accidentally altered. Check all printer settings are ok, go to printer maintenance and do a thorough cleaning. Also, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer as corrupted drivers can cause the paper sensor to misread the paper type and settings and overcompensate on magenta ink.

The color printer might not print in color due to dirt and other unwanted particles present in the printer. Due to this unwanted particles, the ink used for printing and other materials might become blocked inside the printer device and this might lead to some printing issues. In order to resolve this issue, regular cleaning of the printer is necessary.
I discovered I had switched photo paper in the process. The new paper obviously isn't compatible with this printer. I went and purchased more of my regular paper and the pictures began printing well again.
Did you change any of the configurations on your printer. Most photo printers have color settings that are media dependent. It sounds like you might have it set to print on regular paper but not on photo paper. There are a lot of settings that you can accidentally change on a printer so I would suggest uninstalling the printer then reinstalling it and see if that is the issue.
sina, Does the photo print good using photo paper? How regular of a paper? Do all other colors have ink? What program are you printing the photo from? Have you tried printing from a different program? Some programs send varying information to printers. If all of the above has been tried...uninstall the printer and download the newest drivers from EPSON and re-install the printer.
