    printer prints too light----works fine with PC

  • art0799 May 10, 2009

    My printer worked fine until I upgraded my Mac to OS 10.5. The printer settings window (Easyprint) has gone, instead I get a very basic print option window for plain paper only. Printouts are much too light.
    I tried uninstalling and re-installing the software, but the installer freezes at the Easyprint stage. Attempts to load the Easyprint installer from the CD gives a warning: "An error occured during file access".
    I downloaded a new driver but the same result.

    Can anyone help?

Download the R2880 driver and use that for printing.  When you instal it, it is located in the Library>Printers>PPDs  It should work a lot better after you do that.

My Epson Stylus CX5400 goes through the entire printing process, but what comes out of the machine is extremely faint and sparse - not readable at all. I've replaced all of the ink cartridges. What else...


1) Click on the printer icon and check to see if there is an ink saving feature on this printer.

2) The following link takes you to the nozzle check section of the FAQ's.

3)On Apple computers the wrong driver may be installed.:


function setViewedFAQCookie(oid, foid) { var viewedCookie = "EP_viewed_faqs" + oid; var viewed = cookie.Get(viewedCookie); var viewedS = new String((viewed == 'null') ? '' : viewed); var found = viewedS.indexOf("" + foid); if ( found == -1 ) { var newViewed = foid + ((viewedS == '') ? '' : (":" + viewedS)); cookie.Set(viewedCookie, newViewed, null, "/", ""); } } Q: Since I upgraded to Macintosh OS X 10.5 (Leopard), my printouts are faint. What should I do? A: Make sure you're not using the Macintosh OS X 10.5 Gutenprint driver. Follow these steps to check if you're using the Gutenprint driver and change it if necessary:
  1. From the Apple menu, select System Preferences.

  2. Click Print & Fax.

  3. If necessary, click once on your printer's name in the Printer list. (You don't need to do this if only one printer driver is installed).

  4. If you see Gutenprint next to your printer name, go to step 5 to change the driver. (The Epson Stylus Photo RX620 appears in the example below, but you'll see your printer or all-in-one name instead).

    If you see only your printer's name, you're using the correct driver, and you can skip the remaining steps.

  5. Turn off the printer.

  6. Click the sw_mac_2_er.gif button to remove the printer from the Printers list, then click OK.

  7. Turn on the printer. Your computer should add the printer automatically.

    If your computer does not add the printer or if it adds the Gutenprint driver again, contact Apple for assistance. You may need to reinstall the Epson drivers provided with Macintosh OS X 10.5.

    Note: To check ink levels, click the Utility button, then click EPSON StatusMonitor. The Supply Levels button will not show remaining ink

MacBook Pro Epson Print Driver Dilemma


your problem is about profiles. The gutenprint is the only way to print from intel to r1800, but this driver don't use the same ICC profiles. You have to use one of three solutions below:
1 the best, you have a profile calibrating device, you make a profile of your couple ink-paper and you convert your document into this ICC profile.
2 you convert your picture into your software in one of the Epson generic profiles (hey probably still are on your computer) and you print whithout color managment
3 (awful) you anticipate the color distorsion and you tune your picture to be bad on the screen but pretty good on paper.

Epson Stylus Photo R1800 Won't Print Colors Right!!!


If you updated your mac then what happens is a generic driver (GIMP/CUPS) got installed. Do the following:

To remove any previous Epson printer driver files and get a good working install of the latest download for the Intel Duo Core, do the following:
REMOVE FILES
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.
5. Close any open windows.
6. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
7. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
8. Double click on the RECEIPTS folder.
9. Delete any "Epson" receipts. Close back to desktop.
10. Open the OS X "Printer Setup Utility".
11. Select the "Printer Setup Utility" menu at the top of your screen and click "Reset Printing System...". Confirm resetting.
12. Close all open windows and restart your computer.
DOWNLOAD
If you have not done so already, use the following steps to obtain the download for the new Intel Duo Core driver:
1. Go to http://support.epson.com
2. Select Printers then Inkjet then your printer model.
3. Under "Drivers and Downloads" select Macintosh.
4. Download only the driver marked for the Intel Duo Core system.
Printer Driver v3.0aAs
Intel-based Macs with OS X (v10.4.4 or later)
epson11769.dmg - 12.4MB - posted on 02/06/06
Installation instructions:
1. Double-click on the "epson11769.dmg" file and follow prompts to create an "epson11769_r1800_printer_driver_30aas" disk image on your desktop.
2. Open the disk image. Double-click the "SPR1800Series 30a" installer icon to begin the installation.
3. Follow prompts to complete installation. Restart Mac once the install is complete.
Do the following to add the printer once the new downloadable Intel Duo Core driver has been downloaded and installed properly:
1. Connect printer.
2. Open Printer Setup Utility.
3. Click ADD.
4. Ensure you are on the Default Browser window.
5. Highlight printer as it appears under Printer Name.
6. For "Print Using" select "Epson Stylus R1800" if this automatically appears on the list. If this does not appear, select OTHER (not "Epson" - which links you to GIMP drivers, which we don't recommend or support). NOTE: if you are using a firewire connection, the printer name may appear as a letter only - ie "E" for "Epson". This is normal.
7. A new window opens where you can Browse to the hard drive location of:
HD > Library > Printers > Epson > Inkjet Printers
(This location contains all the Intel Duo Core Epson driver plugins, be they resident or downloaded.)
8. Highlight/Select the plugin for your printer model in the Inkjet Printers folder, then click OPEN.
9. Use the up/down arrows at the end of "Print Using" again to (re)select the printer's name, which will now appear at the TOP of the "Print Using" list.
10. Click ADD. The new downloaded driver will now be added on the list.
11. If there are other printers on the list, ensure the Epson is made default before testing.
When you are working with a printer model which supports borderless and/or roll paper printing options, you will be able to select these options in the program you are printing from as you set up your print job.
1. Once you have an image or file open, go to File > Page Setup.
2. For "Format For" select the Epson printer name (rather than "Any Printer").
3. Select the appropriate Paper Size. If your printer supports different layout features, each paper size will have several different options. For example, the 4x6 paper size will have an arrow pointing right which offers choices of 4x6 Borderless, 4x6 Standard-Minimize Margins, etc. Pick the paper type plus layout/margin option you want to use here.
4. Click OK on Page Setup. You are now ready to print.
