Blue tint suddenly appearing on all my photos

Out of nowhere my photos now have a blue tint when I print them on my Epson Stylus photo printer. Any ideas what is happening?

    Thanks guys, you it the nail on the head. Although my black and light magenta were at 10%, replacing them did the trick. In the past I was able to get down below 5%, but obviously not this time. Thanks again.

You may need to run a clean on ur nozzles and check if you are low on ink.

The first thing I would check is the ink cartridges. Blue tint can be caused by a lack of other colors. Easiest way to check that is to print a sample document with the individual colors of ink in each of your printer cartridges. The R300 uses 5 color cartridges (Cyan, Light Cyan, Yellow, Magenta, Light Magenta) and 1 black cartridge. Another cause could be a clogged print head. There should be a utility included with the printer software to perform a print head cleaning cycle. The last thing I can think of is the color setting in the printer properties may have been changed somehow. You can check the settings in the printer properties under the color management tab.

Coulers not true green

There are a couple possibilities that maybe the reason since you have not been specific enough.

1. You might be using generic ink.
2. The paper you are using is not Epson ink and may cause different hues and tints to appear.
3. you might need to calibrate the printer settings with your screen settings.

thanks adi

Re-install the printer after downloading the latest driver from Epson. It is quite likely that the Canon software has over written the colour profile for the Epson.

Blue lines all over the printing

Did u clean the print nozzle's as well? If that does not solve your problem, you should try and replace the cartridge. (Colour in case of blue lines and black in case of black lines)
