Question about Epson Stylus Photo R2400 InkJet Printer
I'm printer on the R2400 from my MacBook Pro. The prints are coming out way oversaturated with red. I am also unable to access the advanced 'Print Setting' It's crossed out???
Hi. I use the premium luster paper in my 2400. I went to print and see its not there any longer. How can I get it back? Bryan

I think you have a corrupted driver- you have to uninstall driver first
1. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
2. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
3. Double click on the PRINTERS folder.
4. Drag the EPSON folder to the trash can.
Go to print and fax and delete the printer name as well
Restart the Mac. (You do not need to empty the trash.)
If you have not done so already, please follow the steps below to download the latest driver for your printer in OSX:
1. Go to the following website: http://support.epson.com
2. Under the PRINTERS heading select INK JETS and then the Stylus Photo R2400.
3. Under the DRIVERS & DOWNLOADS section select MACINTOSH.
4. Select and download the following file for your operating system
which mac are you using? tiger ot leopard? intel core or powerpc?

If you are encountering a red or magenta cast when printing from Photoshop, please try the following changes in the driver and color profiles.
1. Open image in Photoshop. If Photoshop prompts you with an "Embedded profile mismatch" message indicating that the image's color space does not match the working color space, DO NOT convert the image or discard the information. Choose to USE the embedded information, otherwise important data about the colors in your image will be lost.
2. Go to FILE, PRINT (WITH) PREVIEW. (PRINT OPTIONS in Photoshop6.) Check SHOW MORE OPTIONS. Instead of OUTPUT use the pull-down arrow to select COLOR MANAGEMENT.
-If printing in color, SOURCE SPACE should be an RGB format of some sort, ie "untagged RGB" or "sRGB". It may also reflect the profile used by the image's source, for example a digital camera or scanner ("sRGBie####").
-If printing in black and white, SOURCE SPACE should be a greyscale or black and white format.
-PRINT SPACE should be a profile that most closely matches the printer name to paper in use and cartridge loaded, for example:
"SP2200 Premium Luster PK" (PK = photo black ink. MK = matte black.)
"SP820 Photo Paper"
"EPSON Stylus Photo 960"
"SPR300 Prem Glossy"
-INTENT can be either Perceptual or Relative Colorimetric. (Experimentation will tell you which looks best. More details on the exact technical differences between these settings is available in Photoshop' HELP menu.)
3. Go to PAGE SETUP. Ensure your printer name is selected.
In OS 9.x or any Windows version, click PROPERTIES to view the printer's current driver settings. In PROPERTIES, configure the following:
-select Custom mode, then click the Advanced button. Turn printer driver's color management OFF here by selecting "No color adjustment".
-Pick appropriate output resolution, DPI, paper type and paper size in use.
-If printing black and white images with the SP2200, ensure color ink mode is selected.
In OS X, go the PRINT menu. Under "Print settings" be sure the appropriate paper type and dpi are selected.
-Under "Color Management" there should be a dot beside "No color adjustment".
Regardless of operating system, do not use the "Print Preview" from the Epson printer driver as you have the Photoshop preview window to work with.
You are now ready to print.
