Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Washed out prints - no color - not vivid

Mac G5 - Apple LCD - Epson R1800 Prints are washed out and dull.  Printer is clean and running like a champ. Epson inks.  But prints are not useable.  Tried various different settings.  Nothing changes much.  Prints just have no life and are light years away from the image on my screen.  What am I doing wrong?  If I print them on my big HP 8550 laser, they look like a Disney movie.  Why won't they print like that on the Epson?  I'm stumped.

I just had the same problem -- go to epson.com and look under drivers and support. Select the R1800 and go to FAQS, there it will tell you how to resolve a driver issue that can cause this.
Good Luck!

Is the nozzle check perfect? No clog at all? All lines appear? Straight lines perfect? Check again.

Epson r1800 nothing printing


I had same problems and i took it back bc it happened right away. I ask if there was any recalls and was told no. My best advice i was given about printers is buy a new one when your ink runs out bc the cost of ink will get you a better printer than you have now bc prices drop so much.

RED WON'T PRINT


Hi-

Try running a head cleaning from your computer, if you are using XP go to printers and faxes under control panel and right click on your printer icon then go to printing preferences then go to maintenance and run head cleaning cycles for 3x then print a nozzle again. if all fails cal epson and check for the warranty so that you can have it replace, coz chances are the nozzle for magenta is clog.

Hope this helps

Image and text printed multiple times and are overlapping


Is the R1800 the only printer that you have on ythis mac?

If it is make sure it is directly connected to your mac via a USB or Firewire cable.

Trash epson folder from Mac HD-Library- Printers
Delete Epson printer utility from Mac HD- Application folder( if you have both delete both icon.

Under prnter setup utility delete the r1800 printer

Go to finder click on file the find, type com.apple.print, if it find anything drag it all on the trash, it will not disappear from the window ( the prefs and . cache files)

download the latest driver for your r1800 from epson website
epson12113.dmg - 10.3MB - posted on 12/20/

then reinstall it, after reinstalling try to readd th printer and make sure under print using it will say Epson SPR1800 series. If you see guten print/ that is a third party driver. dont use the gutenprint. then try to print, update me for the outcome
