Question about Epson Stylus Photo 950 InkJet Printer

Open Question

My epson 950 suddenly started printing aberrant colours

Hi,
Using premium glossy paper (preferences set correctly), some deep blacks print as a streaky red.
Using plain paper (preferences - plain), all colours are patchily bizarre; a re-try produces the same effect.
It is most likely I have stupidly missed something but I would appreciate help. Genuine Epson inks used. Nozzle aligment correct and heads clean.

Could be defective printer or maybe that is just the way it works and is unsatisfactory. If not happy with results try another printer after returning the Epsom. Check consumer reports for printers that do great job on photos and go that route.

When I print on photo paper the ink doesn't dry and picture quality is unrecognisable


You have to match your print settings with the correct type of media used !

When you print, set the preferences, set to PHOTO quality and not draft, set paper type to PHOTO PAPER, or GLOSSY PHOTO PAPER whichever - If you select wrong media type your colors might be off. Select the settings that match the closest to your media. If you use paper use "plain paper" setting, if you use glossy photo paper, use "glossy photo paper" as settings and PHOTO quality.

I recommend use you use inkjet PHOTO paper, glossy, you can use HP or EPSON or even the cheap LIKON ones work amazing for me, they should be able to dry quickly, if they don't you are not using the correct settings.

By your description above it looks like you are using economy or draft mode - NOT good for photo paper.
