Question about Epson Stylus Pro 4000 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson Stylus Pro 4000 is printing green instead of black

It is printing green instead of black. I have tried printing from the native InDesign file and also exporting it as a PDF X-1. The black in the file is not 4 color. What is the problem.

    if your magenta is getting low or is blocked, you will see your images in shades of green. Also, black ink is never perfectly black, it is a very deep cyan or magenta and depending on how close it comes on the gamut chart to black will indicate how thin it can go down before showing its true color. The profile in the machine tells the printer to add a bit of this or that to offset this color shift from neutral in lighter greys. If your profile is off or if one of your inks is low, you will see this shift towards a color in your printed image. Also, if your monitor is not correctly profiled, it could show a neutral color when in fact the digital file will print in some color.

Hi mariann346i am having the same problem with my EPSON RX 595 printer.
i can not print in black and white, it always prints in green.
i also notice something els, even after refilling my six cartridges
and only trying to print in black and white, my yellow ink is running out just as fast as my black so i guess they are somehow mixing together. you should check to make sure your yellow isn`t doing the same.

Where is the printer ip address?


You should be able to print the settings from the printer. Press the menu button and go to the reports and print the settings. You can also load the drivers and they will search your network for any available epson printers. I have included a link to the downloads page for documentation and drivers.

Inkjet printers needto be used frequently to prevent ink drying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, thenprint head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Will not print to size


There are "default" paper options that can be set from the epson software you may need to alter these to suit your regular paper size.

Also if you are printing from MS office you can select sizes from there too.

It is better if both are set to the same.

Printer won't print 17''x76'' long Banner on Canvas


What is the page setup in the Indesign Program?  Sounds like is is trying to print to the standard paper size of 8.5 X 11.  See if the program allows you to change the page set up to 12"X66" to match the banner.  
Hope this helps...

Epson pro 9800 wont print


Don't print out of illustrator it causes a lot of heartburn. put the art into indesign or Quark and print from the layout program. That has always solved the problem for us.

Can't print from Indesign CS3 to Epson stylus photo 2100


It sounds like a buffer overun problem. Try reducing the resolution of your graphics. Have you contacted Adobe? You have one year free technical support with the software, I believe.
