Question about Epson Stylus R265 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Epson R265 printing colours incorrectly

Printer has been working fine then started to print in completely the wrong colours. It started when I was trying to print some black and white photographs and it printed in an orangey colour instead. I have tried to print a colour photograph and the skin tone is coming out very magenta. I have checked and cleaned the print heads and on the check the dark cyan was not printing at all. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks!

For the black and white issue, check the settings and make sure that it isn't set on "sepia". As for the color issue, it is quite possible that you are out of ink. Printers may use more of one color than another depending on what you're printing. Change your color cartridge.

SOURCE: Print is right when preview is very magenta (like 40 pts magenta)

This sounds like a calibration problem. The first thing I would try is to un-install the driver, download the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website then reinstall the new software.
I'm not familiar with the drivers of this printer but look to see if there is a printer/monitor calibration area try the settings there.
The other obvious place to look in is the software you are printing from. Try printer/Monitor calibration in the help menu

I would recommend cleaning the contacts (brass colored connections) with an eraser if might resolve the issue. It that does not resolve the issue it might be one of two other things. Either the printhead is cloged or the cable to the printerhead is damaged.
Good luck

Print first a nozzle check pattern, self test which they say. Check your manual for your printer, it should be accessible from that if you dont have any manual, go to the epson website and download a manual. Usually the self test would go like this.

While the printer is turned off, you press and hold down the paper feed button, continue holding it down while turning on the printer. It will print the nozzle check pattern standalone. If you see all the colors then the issue your having is a color management issue, if you do not see the cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light magenta and light cyan from that test; then you will need to do 3 consecutive times of Head Cleaning from the maintenance program in your computer. If you have a windows xp it goes like this.

Click on start go to control panel - printers and faxes -
you right click on your printer icon and select printing prefrences. From there, go to maintenance tab and click head cleaning, go through that cycle 3 consecutive times and see if it improved. Good luck....

EPSON R265 cd/dvd printer can not print in black colour I have tried to reintall the driver but still can't print in black ink. Other colours print well. Ink cartridges are new.


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or
poor ink cartridge contacts.

Re: DVD labels won't print on my Epson R265


Hello guys.

About the problems printing CD/DVD with your Epson R265 ....................

There is nothing to do. The prg coming with the printer (PrintCD) is wrong at all and we cannot understand why the Epson Corp. has simply deleted the prg by its download site.

After tryng for a lot of solutions ........ INCREDIBLE but TRUE ..... the program Print CD coming with the previous Epson R200 is ok at 100% !

So, in conclusion, all prgs inserted onto the Epson R265 CD are OK eccept the Print CD. Don't install it from the R265 disk ! It will crash !

If already installed, delete it and install the prg Epson R200 print CD.
It will work fine and without troubles.

Repeat ... it's incredible, but true.

The prg can be downloaded searching for Epson R200 software.
If you will have troubles, let me know.

Check status monitor if empty or low:
Replace if empty ect:

Soak the cartridge nozzles upright in Flush Solution for 6 hours dry and retry , make up a A4 Paper colour printing page with each colour band about 1" high x 8" wide and print out 4 - 6 pages checking which colour band is poor:

Keep printing if improvement noticed:
if not
Resoak the offending cartridges and repeat:
also can
Use cleaning cartridge on offending colour slot/s then retry:

Dont use the head cleaning utility to much as it is programmed to disable your printer after a pre-set number of cleans and will have to be serviced:
