Brown background instead of white

You are probably out of ink in one or more cartridges. You need to do a diagnostic print and take the print to the ink supply vendor to get the correct replacements.

I am an artist very fussy about color. On this Kodak, purple is brownish, blue is ugly greenish, khaki-ish, majenta is orangish, my green eyes are brown, my fair skin is orangish and brownish and greenish....


Well as you probably already know the Canon printers do colors particularly well.

I am not experienced with the Kodak printers.

Before you give up a sugest you find out if there are any color profiles available for your printer.

You can try the Kodak webs site or check else where for them online. I would suggest the photographer forums.

(By the way Kodak is known for playing fast and lose with their color profiles so it may be that you will need one from somewhere other than Kodak.

Hope this helps.

I'm looking for the manual for the Alps MD-1300 printer, I need to know how to print spot colors

The 1300 prints spot colors the same way as the other ALPS printers. To print spot colors, create a mask or layer using only black with your artwork. Select the spot color you want and the black areas on the mask will be printed in the spot color. Make sure that you check the overlay box so the printer retains the printer. You also need to make sure you are using the ALPS printer driver supplied with the printer and NOT the default Windows plug and play driver.

How do i get the deepest richest colors possible from my printer. I heat press tee shirts and want red, greens, etc as deep and rich as possible. using HP photo paper matte and best settings. HELP

no printer is capable of all the colors a monitor is. create designs in "printable" colors. programs like paintshop and photoshop can "show" you on your monitor what an image will look like when printed, and even convert those images to those colors if you wish

Can you tell me if I can use my printer with only the black cartridge? if so what proceedure . I never use color

This printer usually prints with the color ink. You cannot print if the colored inks get empty. But if you want to use only the black ink without wasting the colored inks, go to control panel>printers and faxes then right click on your default printer and go to color management and click on manual. When you print again you will be able to choose which colors are you going to use from a list of colors.

Color prints yield only brown.

do the pictures look right on the monitor?

a program that comes with Photoshop is called adobe gamma, and it starts the first time you run photoshop needs to be configured. try that as well

also try in microsoft word , to color some text and print it, does it print in the correct colors??

if nothing works, try reinstalling the printer driver, maybe you have chosen the wrong driver.

tell me what you get.

Ink Cartridge Settings

Have you tried Canons FAQ? They suggest checking the grayscale box, which apparently only works with certain kinds of printing (duplexing and borderless will still use colors). I don't understand how colored inks are used to create black, but that's what they claim. Anyway, here's the link:

According to " HP Officejet R, PSC 500 and Color Copier - General Copying Issues and Solutions", under the problem heading "Black is not Black", notes that:

"The unit will perform mono (or black) copies using the color cartridge to create a composite black in Normal and Best modes. This is necessary to create the correct grayscale shades. NOTE: The HP PSC 500 all-in-one product cannot perform black copies. Scan the image in and print it out in greyscale.

The color cartridge may be out of one color of ink. Run a self-test page to verify that all the colors are there. Replace the cartridge if they are not."

In other words, the device only uses the black ink cartridge when used as a computer printer. When used as a stand-alone copier, it uses the color ink cartridge, and all three ink colors must be present and working to give a black and white copy. Perhaps you can refill the color cartridge with black ink in all chambers?

probably the printer takes his own color-profiles installed by epson.
Click on propriaties of the printer and create your own color-profile for diferent sizes.
you can take the color-profile from a smaler size and save it choosing an other size.
So You also can improove your pictures by changing the color-profile after your needs...
but then you should use the same paper , because different papers give different colors.
you can also improove the colors by choosing-on the profile-another type of paper.

i hope i could help
