Question about Epson Stylus Photo R2400 InkJet Printer

Printer prints misaligned

When I try to print a photo, using Photoshop, the image appears to be centered, but when I actually try to print it, the picture comes out misaligned. It is off-center in the left-right axis, so that part of the vertical border is too wide and the other vertical border is chopped off. It may be a coincidence, but this appeared to happen just after a friend of mine became impatient, while waiting for a picture that was jammed in the printer, and she reached over and just yanked it out. I'm thinking that she somehow damaged the alignment of the printer, when doing this, but maybe it's just a seeming coincidence. If this is actually what happened, is there anything that I can do to correct it? Thank you.

Re: Printer prints misaligned

Try printing with another printer to confirm that the problem is from your own printer b4 you draw any conclusion.

Re: Printer prints misaligned

It is unlikely the removal of the jammed picture caused any alignment problem. The head is monitored VERY closely as to where is is exactly in the linear scale. This is done by an encoder strip near the drive belt for the printer head. If it is intact and clean the the printer will know where the head is at all times. If the encoder is damaged you usually find the print head goes flying off to the right and tries to break out of hte right side of the machine! Are you sure you have the correct paper size set and that the paper is the size it is supposed to be. Make sure you use the paper support and the guide is pushed up. You could also try seeing if a new driver is available from

This Problem is based on the Color Management so , The Perfect Solution for this problem is open the Photo or image etc in Adobe PhotoShop then goto Enhance->Adjust Color->Remove Color Cast , after removing the color cast , create a new layer for adjusting brightness , contrast & etc , then finally goto Image Size and change the DPI from 72 to 300 then save the image as JPEG or PNG etc , after saving the image close the Photoshop and open the image using Windows Photo Viewer and take the printout which will come as it is in the System

The colors print misaligned, the blue and yellow print and then the rest print just off to the side

Had the same problem. The colours were mis aligned, or out of register. Tried everything, but nothing worked. Was going to toss it out, then tried changing the paper size in the print setup window of Photoshop to A4. Just make sure whatever Photo program you are printing from to choose A4 as the paper size. Printer worked fine after I did this.

When printing a 4x6 photo, the image is printing with the top half of the photo twice,one under the other. what do I need to change to get a complete photo?

Be sure that you have the printer set to "reduce to fit", then try printing it again. Also, if you have a program like Adobe Photoshop installed where you can manually set the exact size of the picture, try that first, then send it to print, but using this method, DO NOT "reduce to fit".

Hope this helps. :)

I cannot match the print color with monitor color. I've tried everything. Downloaded new drivers, tried various combinations within Photoshop. reclaibrated my monitor. Going nuts. It used to work, but...

Not an uncommon problem. Monitors are normally adjusted to what the viewer considers the ideal FOR THEIR viewing which has not relation to what the image is actuall like-hence the mismatch in what you see and what the print looks like.

Have a read here and see if it works.

When I print pictures on the 3210 HP all-in-one, they come out very small even though I choose the 4X6 in paper size for the photo tray. I've tried everything I can, but the pictures keep printing wallet...

First thing that comes to mind is that a 4x6" print could print four wallet sized photos; be shure your are not printing more than one copy.

If you are trying to print more than one,it will print the actual picure you have and leave space for the number of other nonexistent prints selected.

See page 75 of the Manual. for directions on how to set up photo printing.

If you have photoshop, you can resize your documents using the menu item, Image / Image size, (Alt + i then i again)

Set the resolution to 300, then the document size width to 6 or 10 inches.

This will guarantee that your document is full size, (though the printer should be able to resize it to fit on the page no matter what).

Give these a try. It's really a shot in the dark, but it's my best guess.

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:

3. Under the DRIVERS & DOWNLOADS section select MACINTOSH.

Trouble printing to photo paper

The paper you print on is not relevant. What happens is the green tint is the actual printer delivering all the colours to give a 'composite' black. On shiny photo paper this is emphasized where as on plain paper the colour is absorbed and shows as intended. So what can you do? Move away from black and go for a tint such as sepia.
