I cannot match the print color with monitor color. I've tried everything. Downloaded new drivers, tried various combinations within Photoshop. reclaibrated my monitor. Going nuts. It used to work, but...


Not an uncommon problem. Monitors are normally adjusted to what the viewer considers the ideal FOR THEIR viewing which has not relation to what the image is actuall like-hence the mismatch in what you see and what the print looks like.

Have a read here and see if it works.

Trying to print on a #10 envelope from iMac 27 with Os 10.5.1 using iWork. Printer will not load paper


I am on an iMac using OSX 10.5.8 and printing on an Epson R1800. With iWork, word processing module I set up the envelope to print and under the File menu, select page setup and choose #10 Envelope with Portrait orientation. I feed the envelope into the printer in the normal horizontal, top first, print surface up. In the File menu I select Print and hit Return. Most of the time this works. Sometimes the envelope feeds through without printing, and occasionally the envelope won't feed but the printer goes through the printing cycle. The R1800 is not the ideal envelope printer. It is made to print photos on photographic paper. I use an old fashioned typewriter to address envelopes.

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.

I can't modify "screen" output in Photoshop CS4 extended


it sounds like you need a driver update for your printer although the most recent seems to be for earlier OS on the website. I would contact Epson and see what they can suggest if you want to continue to use this printer. I think though that you may have to consider printing to PDF format as a step you may have to accept.

Epson R1800 pauses during printing


If you give to the printer a big file to print, you will overfill the buffer. So it will make a stop to refill, and during this pause the ink become dry on limit. The r1800 is A3 printer 300dpi, so a 50MB file is enough to plain quality.
Try to put your file in 8 bit mode, flatten it and put it to the print size in 300dpi.

Dark prints when printing from my Imac using Leopard


I was also having problems with my Epson scanner on my iMac. I read that the best way to solve Epson's problems is to (1) uninstall all Epson software from your HD, and (2) download the appropriate drivers from Epson and install them.

Note: The Epson R1800 has two drivers: the most recent is an update. So, you must first download and install the Printer Driver v6.12. When that's done, then download and install Printer Driver Update v1.02.

I did that and I still got dark prints. Then I got an inspiration. In the Print dialogue box, I changed my Printer Profile to the paper I was using, Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper, instead of using sRGB and/or Adobe RGB. Specifically, I used SPR1800 PrmLstr PhotoRPM.icc. The next test print was virtually spot on to what was displayed on the screen. I am now a VERY happy camper.

Please pass this info onto anyone else who can use it.

Printing an envelope in cs3 on an epson stylus photo r1800


You can try using Microsoft word in printing on envelopes, it is easier. On my MS word>tools>letters and mailings>envelopes and labels>click on feed and use the fourth from the left option.
Load the envelope at the right side of the printer> the envelope flap should be on the left facing the printer.

Epson R1800 and Imac intel


Not sure about this as Mac's are not my bag. Try removing the driver and software you installed. reboot your PC and make sure the printer has gone from the list. Reistall the latest driver you downloaded from Epson and try it again.
