My Epson R800 printer has never printed a true red. It's always been a weak, pinkish red. All the other colors are fine.Is anybody familiar with this problem and how I might fix it? Thanks (WinXP user)

Actually magenta is the weakest compared to cyan and
yellow using even K3 inks. Now epson is releasing
K3 with vivid magenta ink. Using any color management
I have found it very difficult to reach a real red without
a lot of tweaking in my color profiles. Now it appears
that Epson sees the problem and is changing magenta
out for vivid magenta ink to solve the weak magenta.

Do a test for clogged print heads. You might need to clean them.

With most inkjet printers, once the black cartridge is empty, you cannot print in black any longer. Black should be "all colors" but if all you have is cyan, yellow and red, you can't make a true black.

Printing to much red. the picture in print shop looks fine but actual print is to red or pinkish.


you'll need to install a color management profile matching your printer, or use manual settings in Photoshop (if that's what you're using) so that the software will issue a lesser red image to compensate for the overly red printouts of your printer.
Another point to consider is that printshops may be using a lot more sophisticated print machines than our everyday laser printers. Also, from what I've read sofar, most color laser printers are optimized for charts, tables and text printouts. Image printing isnt their favorite thing to do.

I suspect this will be a tricky one! I am printing from a new iMac / CS5 setup. I am using OCP inks and Ilford paper. I am printing the same images to both machines. The print settings are identical....


hi Anthony, i spent a month trying to figure out a similar problem with an epson 2200. Now, the printers are different but not that much, and, the changes in paper and ink gave me "some" color issues but not as bad as what i was getting. your problem seems very similar. i run a PC so this is similar but not exactly the same. what i found was that a Magenta/ violet cast was due to double profiling. I could verify that i had the correct settings but i was wrong! I print from CS3 into the epson 2200. What i found was there is an error(no one is talking about) in the printer driver. You cannot shut off the color management completely! Assume this scenario, you are printing with CS3 applying your profile in CS3. Make the settings in CS3 as normal, then you are directed to the printer settings. Go to the print driver and make the selections for ICM Color, and select "no color". The KEY is to make sure you do this step LAST , make sure to click on the "apply" button, then "Close". Once you make the selection of "No Color" do NOT click on anything else. If you change screens in the print driver once you select "no color mgmt" the driver CHANGES your settings. ANY settings in the other pages in the print driver cause the driver to apply a printer profile, this effectively "double profiles" your photo print causing the magenta cast. None of this should happen if the driver was created correctly but there it is! It took a long time to test and verify but it is as i stated. Once i got it sorted out my photos are excellent ALL the time. Good luck, worm1855.

The color is not printing true. When i print with my canon printer, colors are no where near true. I have been trying to print a red, cmyk: 0%, 100%, 100%, 10%, and the color is printing red-orange on...


We just bought one of these IX7000's. It is the usual giveth/taketh away situation. Ours prints beautifully from the paper cassette and pretty badly from any other feed (mostly the rear) you really have to wrestle with the driver if you print from the rear feed. If yours is printing badly from the cassette feed, I would say you have a problem with the clear ink. You may want to make sure it is inserted correctly and then clean the nozzles. I have found only one setting in which it will print nicely from the rear (envelope) feed. The cassette only accepts a limited number of paper sizes. I was disappointed by this. If it prints poorly from the cassette, it is either your driver settings or an issue with the clear ink feed. Maybe.

HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.


Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

Pictures come out dark with normal settings.


The solution is documented on the Epson Support site if you can find it.

In printer properties (Printing Preferences), select the ICM button instead of Color Controls (the default) in the Color Management area. This is under the Advanced settnigs, not the Basic settings. I found out that leaving Color Controls selected and chosing a Gamma of 1.5 (the lowest they allow) also lightens up the printing.
