Question about Epson Stylus CX4200 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Ever since I connected my Epson Stylus cx4200 printer to my i book G5, my printer prints everything with a grey tinge. Blacks are not black but light gray and colors come out, but again they're gray-ish. Am I using the wrong driver? My ink cartridges are new, I replaced them when I connected the printer to my ibook. Any help would be great!!
I solved this problem but probably not what the printer manufacturer would recommend! The reason you are just getting grey is that the black ink cartridge is either empty or dried out from non use and only the color cartridge is working. I had the same problem after being away for 5 months. I put the printer cartridge in a bowl of warm water to disolve the dried out ink on the print pad. I dried off the cartridge with a soft cloth and then it worked perfectly.

If the printing preference is on "draft", it will print everything on light color or grey. check the printing preference, choose text or image instead of draft.
