Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Color variations - not realistic in my prints from Epson R1800

I own 2 Epsons - R1800 & C88. Recently my R1800 prints lack a golden warm tones and some even have an unnatural blue/green, instead of say the true yellow/green. I use PE6 and printed 2 shots using both printers. The R1800 gave the results described above, however, the C88 printed more realistic colors that matched my original object and monitor views. I have also changed the inks and cleaned the heads. Any idea what could be wrong with my R1800 and how to fix?

Can you make it so you can print black and white when the colors run out? i know i've done it with other printers before but can not find the option on the epson c88 properties.


Dear friend,
In other make like HP it'll print without colour cartridges.But in this model Epson there is no possibilities of printing without a single cartridge.You may reset the cartridge and use it for printing.But reset process only reset chips.

I keep getting lines on all my images when I print in color. I cleaned the print heads at least 5 times and have all new ink cartridges. Please advise.


1. make sure that nothing is clogged.
2. use a software specialized for cleaning your printer.
3. make sure that the printer is set to "color"

Recently replaced all cartridges in C88 with new recently purchased Epson cartridges. Only blue and black ink prints. No red or yellow. Tried cleaning printer heads. Still no red or yellow printing.


You have to go to the properties of the printer and in the maintainance tab do some nozel cleaning and head cleaning.
and check it should be fine
thanks

I've replaced the ink cartridges on my mother's Epson Stylus C88 printer and it prints only green. Any suggestions?


Epsons usually give you an option to "clean the heads." Look for any Epson software on the computer, or it might be hidden within the "Properties" of that printer (in Control Panel).

Epson stylus C88 won t print color ink black is


If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

C88 printing in grey instead of the color


In the Print dialog, go to 'Properties.' Screw around in there for a bit.
