SOURCE: Incompatible with Vista

  1. Uninstall your Epson and than disconnect it from your PC.
  2. Download drivers and other utilities suiting your Vista version (32 or 64 bit) from here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=58606&prodoid=56291067&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows
  3. After installing this printer driver, please be sure to download and install the TWAIN Driver and EPSON Scan Utility before connecting this unit to your computer. You can download TWAIN driver from that same address.
  4. Connect your Epson to your PC.

SOURCE: color problem in Epson Stylus Pro 4800

I've had similar color management problems.  I've lacked consistent color management from day one with this printer.  I use standard Epson ICC profiles for paper /printer combinations.  In setup I select the specific paper type (mostly Epson Premium Luster paper.  SP4800 PLPP PK 288.icc profile. I use Print with Preview, Color Handling "No Color Management".  Under Print Setup I select Premium Luster Photo Paper. Under Printer Color Management I select Off (No color management).
Prints with these settings are so far off from the colors in the preview image the only thing they are good for is the shredder.  I I've gone through several hundred dollars trying to get consistent color management.
I also use an Eye One Greytag Mcbeth color management tool for both monitor, and for some papers, custom profiling.  Nothing seems to improve.  
I did talk with a consultant and was advised to do a good head cleaning (which was done) and also use Disk Utility to repair permissions (also done) but still no improvement. My consultant from a reputable Pro Photo source advised me that I was not alone and that he ad numerous users who were experiencing similar color management problems.  This vendor no longer carries Epson because of  these continuing problems. Try the head cleaning and repairing permissions.  As for me, I've been struggling twith these problems for over a year.  I'm looing at trading in my Epson 4800 for an HP Z3100. This is probably overkill for my needs as it is 24 inch capacity but i like that it has an Euye One photo sensitometer built into the print heads.  I'll be going to the vendor and testing this unit later this week.

Communication error typically means that your printer and computer aren't talking. Assuming you're using a USB cable, try a replacement cable, in another socket on the computer.

Printer stop printing ink


If you can't even get ink to come out for a nozzle check, there are two different things you can try. Update the Epson Firmware, or you'll have to change out the motherboard.
