Epson stylus photo r2400 printer

I am viewing my digital images through photoshop cs2. Trouble is when I print these images on my r2400 the print is always very much darker. This is causing problems since I cannot be sure what my printed image will look like. Some prints are almost black with very little detail. My printer is one year old and has always had this problem. Hope you can help, since no one has been able to solve this problem yet! Perhaps I should have sent this printer back when I bought it??

Re: epson stylus photo r2400 printer

Hi Sir One solution that you might try is go to the control panel and look up the printer that you have installed if you have more than one printer hear do not worry you see you may have say a Microsoft document writer all that you should be interested in is the printer that says r2400 this should have a mark to state that it is your main printer if so right click on the printer icon and press properties when this box opens you can tes print or alter the printer details from hear just reset your settings to their original factories settings and print out a test page if all is fine ok if not you may need to replace your printer Hope this helps Paddy

Printouts are almost with no colors. The printing is too fast. What can be wrong?

Sounds like your printer is printing in draft mode. I have photoshop and the R2400. When I click on Print with Preview in Photoshop I get a window that sets the print size and so on. Then I get a window that picks the printer so I choose R2400 and the click on the properties button to get the R2400 interface. At that point I choose "Best Photo" to tell it to print at the highest quality.

Epson stylus k3 r2400

Hi Lisa
The R2400 has the choice of two black inks, MK and PK. One is for Matt printing, the other (called photo black) is for gloss.
If the printer has the matt cartridge fitted it only allows suitable options, including paper choice, to be selected. If you change the black cartridge from the MK to the PK one, you should then have the choice of gloss paper.

Epson stylus photo R2400

I had this trouble, went through cleaning & realignment, then various print options. What i found was that dark colours had faint dark horizontal lines 5mm apart when printing on Photo in the epson driver. Changing it to Best Photo solved it.

Epson R2400 too red

i think you have a corrupted driver- you have to uninstall driver first

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.

Go to print and fax and delete the printer name as well

Restart the Mac. (You do not need to empty the trash.)
If you have not done so already, please follow the steps below to download the latest driver for your printer in OSX:

1. Go to the following website:
2. Under the PRINTERS heading select INK JETS and then the Stylus Photo R2400.
3. Under the DRIVERS & DOWNLOADS section select MACINTOSH.
4. Select and download the following file for your operating system

which mac are you using? tiger ot leopard? intel core or powerpc?
