Printing issues with Epson r285

I have just bought a brand new printer and am doing a lot of printing for my photography course.
The prints come and much darker than my calibrated screen. I have tried all the things I should for the printing profile, i.e print through photoshop then control colours in colour management , or print using printer and coloursync etc. 
I know there is a way of matching the colours on the screen to the print and changing the saturation but I can't remember how.
What am I missing?!
Please help!

Hi! try this! 1. go to control panel, select the printer, then right click the model of your printer, select properties, then select printing preferences.    in printing preference, select effect, then check the box of vivid photos. If you check vivid photos it will add enhancement to your printout. But thats not it, 2. open your photoshop, find your color settings, set your RGB color to (sRGB IEC61996- 2.1) then you CMYK color to (U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2) then off all your Color-management Policies and don't mind anything. 3. After your Edit your photos from RGB, then convert it to CMYK, then try printing it.

With words not printing properly?
On my epson, I went and bought Cheaper Ink, which was supposed to be compatible,and it wasnt!

What the epson, did, was print out in different colors.
the green was blue and yellow was pink, etc.

Epson, restricts you from buying other brands, like that. It makes you buy their Brand !!!!!!!
Good Luck.

Epson r285 uses all colors to print black


To print in black ink only mode on windows, please follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the drv_taskbaricon_1.gif printer icon in the lower right corner of your screen (taskbar).
  2. Select Printer Settings. A preferences window will appear.
  3. Click the Advanced button in the lower right corner of the preferences window (if you see a Basic button in the lower right corner of the window, skip this step).
  4. Click the Black Ink Only check box.
  5. Click OK in the preferences window.
If you’re using a Macintosh, you can’t set up the printer to print in black by default.

However, your printer will still use minimal amounts of color cartridges to prime the system when your printer is in the initialization stage when turned on. Your printer also mixes all the color cartridges to make up another black, that is to prolong the life of the black cartridges.

open your document and click print, then click on the properties button.Then click on the page layout tab and uncheck the collate button.
This wil print each page on a new piece of paper, the collate option is to print on both sides of the paper.
