Photos printing too dark

No matter what setting i try, always the same result... am using windows xp (service pack 2) and trying to print with an epson stylus photo rx510. Have tried the online help guides to no avail, and tried just for the sake of it taking exactly the same pic with three different cams to see what happens, and the images still print out pretty dark even though there was a flash in use. when i view an image on the pc it shows it as very bright, but prints very dull. For what it's worth the images are printing absolutely perfectly but just way darker than they should be. As far as i am aware i have the latest driver available (v5.5) and have tried the suggestion on the Epson site to use the ''ICM'' setting, but that just made the printed images darker. Am trying to print on Kodak Photo Paper (Glossy). Just getting frustrating after wasting 20+ sheets of paper on something that was supposed to be a simple point and click job. Any suggestions would be appreciated :)

Try editing the photo.. more brightness, contrast etc etc.. see if it will also print brighter... if it still prints the same i guess its time to throw the printer back to epson

This looks like a DEP problem (Data execution Prevention) which is part of Service Pack 2 (SP2) on your computer. To solve the problem, DEP needs to be set on: DEP only for critical windows programs and services (I don't know if this is the correct translation). You will find the DEP settings on your windows help function. .

Printer does not print documents. Model IP3000 pixma. Approx 3 years old, used in my classroom. Printer has been working well until this morning. This is a sudden failure. Performed all maintainence with...


I had this very same ongoing problem with my iP3000 and recently with my iX4000 but I refused to believe it was the printheads as the iP3000 would print cd/dvd discs without a problem. Colour on paper was always there even though I used Calidad tanks.

My solution, or more aptly, my workaround was to change the paper setting from Plain paper to Glossy paper but still using plain paper and low and behold, after nine months of test pages with only the Windows logo it stated printing black text again albeit slowly now. Same deal for the iX4000, it started printing black text on plain paper as well after 4 weeks when the problem first occurred

I also did all the maintenance rigmarole over and over etc...with no results. My printers are hooked up to two PC's, Vista and XP so maybe I eventually scrambled the printers barins or something, anyway I'm printing again.

Worth a try and nothing to lose

Can't figure out how to adjust darkness/tone for printer output


Hi,
Below you can see a step by step procedure on how to change the print quality of your work....you need to make test printouts in order for you to see the results....at the end there is a link to the manual for your printer...GOOD LUCK!!!

Print-quality settings affect print resolution and toner usage.
Use the following procedure to change print-quality settings:
1. Open the printer Properties (or Printing Preferences in Windows 2000 and XP).
2. On the Paper/Quality tab or the Finishing tab (the Paper Type/Quality tab for some Mac drivers),
select the print quality setting you want to use. The following options are available:
● 1200 dpi: This setting uses ProRes 1200 to provide fine-line detail at 1200 x 1200 dpi.
● 1200 dpi effective output quality: This setting provides 1200 dpi effective output quality
using FastRes 1200.
● 600 dpi: This setting provides 600 x 600 dpi output with Resolution Enhancement technology
(REt) for improved text.
● EconoMode: Text is printed using less toner. This setting is useful when you are printing
drafts. You can turn on this option independently of other print-quality settings.

Dark vertical lines on printed photos 18cm apart


Remove the cartridge and put it back in. If same issue persists, try to do head cleaning and nozzle checks simultaneously from the computer.

Start -> Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes (Windows XP) / Printers (Windows Vista) -> Printer Icon (right click) -> Printing Preferences -> Maintenance

You should be able to see nozzle check, click it and follow the prompt. Line patterns that corresponds to the colors of the ink cartridges would be printed. If breaks on those patterns appears, continue with head cleaning. Try to do this about 3 times until all patterns are complete.

PSC1510 & Vista problem


The problem cannot BE solved. It's yet ANOTHER Vista screw-up.

Original Problem:

"No matter what I try - every page from Jarte prints out with an UNWANTED gray
background.
This does not always happen when I print from the web, make copies or print from
Microsoft Word. I ran diagnostics on my printer HP PSC1510 and it's fine.
Test pages print ok, too.
Please help - I had Jarte on my last laptop (Windows XP), it worked very well
and I liked it much better than MS Word."

I emailed Jarte Tech support and got the following answer:

"The problem you encountered is a bug in Windows Vista. You will see the same problem when using WordPad on Windows Vista. As you have noticed, not all programs are affected by the bug. The problem is occurring because you are using a Windows color scheme that uses a gray background color for text windows. Unfortunately, the only work around is to specify white as the background color to use for text windows. Hopefully, Microsoft will correct the problem in a future Windows Vista service pack."

SELPHY printing too dark


I have some experience with color profiles, after trying to fix this problem by changing the profiles in Photoshop, letting the printer manage color, leting PS to do so, and every possible thing.... I found that increasing brightness, and 2 points of saturation on the printer dialog pretty much prints what you see on the iPhoto screen. I have the Selphy 740 not the ES1, but might be the same....  abee9c5.gif
