Magenta cast on prints

I purchased a epson 7800 in dec 06 and it has been fine until now.Prints are coming out with a magenta cast all over.The prints are generally faint in appearance as well.I have done a head clean and a power clean but this has not cured the problem.I have changed my editing software from Corel to Adobe ph shop elements 5 but have not altered my images apart from resizing them.Can anyone please advise. PS There must be a law against excessive ink cartridge prices.

Re: magenta cast on prints

Probably u need to exchange the cartridge, normally the ones that came with the printer aren´t full, they are just for few prints.

My printer prints in green not other colours

Most printers have 4 color inks: Black, magenta, cyan, yellow.
If your magenta ink isn't printing, then your prints will have a green cast.
If your printer has a "nozzle test", I suggest doing that. If it has a "head clean" function, that may help.
Replacing the magenta ink cart may be all that's needed.

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.

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

Red cast on all prints

Sounds crazy, but have you got the LM (light magenta) and M (magenta) tanks or inks mixed up?

Also - check the profiles, if you've got a colour profile set up, you may have applied it twice, which would make a magenta cast...
