Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer
I just got my printer back from being serviced today because of terrible banding. They told me the print heads just needed to be flushed out, which is what they did...and they printed a nice picture for me, which looked great. When I got home, I tried printing one of my b/w images. Well, my image looks horrible. It's got a blueish green tint to it! I used the same settings that I remember using previously...choosing Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, no Color Management/Adjustment. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I have printed many, many b/w images in the past (to display my work - I'm a photographer), and it always printed beautifully. Also, my b/w's are a custom b/w tone...and they have very warm tones to them...so the blue/green thing is really throwing me off. Any body have any helpful hints for me?? Thanks in advance!
My printer is a Epson Stylus Photo 2200, and I'm using a Mac Tower.

SOURCE: white bands on my prints
Did you try cleaning the decoder strip? It is located behind the print head, looks like the tape inside a cassette tape. If it has ink splatter or a smudge on it carefully wipe it down with a paper towel (damp). It may be easier to remove it, careful not to stretch the little spring on the left side.

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.

Epson doesn't like Generic Cartridges.
Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, etc. These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.
That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.
So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.
This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.
Thanks and Good Luck :0)
