Question about Epson Stylus Photo 2100 InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Printing options have disappeared (re plain paper; glossy paper; CD etc)

All my printing options (re; plain paper; semigloss; glossy; matte; CD etc are gone). I've tried downloading different drivers but this hasn't worked. Any ideas anyone ? I bought my Epson Stylus Photo 2100 InkJet printer when I was still on MacOS 9.2 working on a Power PC G4. When I switched to my actual Dual 2GHz Power PC G5 working with MacOSX v10.5.4, everything went wrong and all the previous features of the printer disappeared: No Margin or Maximum printable area, Premium Semigloss and Glossy paper, etc... Is there any new updated driver for the printer (working on Leopard) or should I think about changing it for a newer printer?

Greetings,

At this time there is no Macintosh OS X 10.5 downloadable driver from EPSON for your printer. Check http://www.epson.co.uk/ for updates, as we continue to update drivers.

***
Also try this troubleshooting steps:

Drivers for your product are included with Macintosh OS X 10.5. Just connect your Epson product to your computer.


If your output is faint or if the driver settings and/or features are missing, your system may have automatically added the printer using the Gutenprint driver.

Determine Which Driver is Currently Being Used

1. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open System Preferences.

2. In the System Preferences window, click on Print & Fax.

3. In the list of printers on the left side of the Print & Fax window, click once on your Epson printer to select it.

4. Check the name of the driver being used; it is displayed in the center of the Print & Fax window next to “Kind”.

5. If the driver name displayed next to “Kind” is Gutenprint, the incorrect driver is being used. Follow the steps in the next section to select the correct driver.


Selecting the Correct Driver

1. Turn off the printer.

2. Delete the print queue and remove the printer from Print & Fax by clicking on the minus (-) button under the list of printers. Click OK to confirm the removal.

3. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open System Preferences.

4. In the System Preferences window, click on Print & Fax.

5. Turn on the printer. The system should add the printer automatically.

6. If the system does not add the printer or if it adds it using the Gutenprint driver, contact Apple for assistance. You may need to reinstall the Epson drivers provided with Leopard.


NOTE: To check ink levels, click the Utility button, then click EPSON StatusMonitor. The Supply Levels button will not show remaining ink levels for your Epson printer.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

"Photo black" is designed specifically for glossy photo paper. Matte black is for non-glossy paper, including plain paper. Matte black will print darker on non-glossy paper than photo black does.

My R1900 is over 1 year old. Profiles are set for Epson glossy and matte paper. Epson ink is used. Colors are now very green when printing to glossy or matte paper. However, if I use the plain paper...


The difference in choosing the paper type will have an impact on how head squirts ink onto the media. For Epson printers, the best choice to fit the color is plain paper.However, to the maximum dpi (best photo or photo rpm), plain paper does not support.This can be overcome by adjusting the color management of the program that we use.Or convert to bitmap all objects (such as Corel Draw), or also in print as bitmap option.

My printer has problems printing dark colours. When printing pictures or text, it leaves horizontal lines on black only. I have a continuis ink system which has lots of black. Any ideas?


Try changing the print paper type to something other than plain paper. Use the matte paper setting, or the photo glossy. The printer will lay down more ink at these specialty settings.

Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper


Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.

Printing paper choices


The paper types available in the driver are dependent on which type of black ink cartridge is loaded in the printer. If the Photo Black ink is loaded, you should have various glossy paper choices. If the Matte Black ink is loaded, you will have a choice of plain or Matte paper types. Once the cartridge is switched, you will get the corresponding paper choices.

This machine will only print certain sizes as borderless. A5 is not one of them. You can use the following media with this feature: Matte Paper - Heavyweight: A4, Letter Premium Glossy Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 5 x 7", 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6", 8 x 10" Photo Paper:A4 Premium Semigloss Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6" Glossy Photo Paper:Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6" As you can see A5 is not in the list, therefor you will not be able to print A5 borderless via the normal means.

R1800 Borderless Printing Problem


Hi Tom, Have you downloaded the latest driver from the Epson web site. Also make sure the output tray is in the correct position and that you are using the correct paper. You can use the following media with this feature: Matte Paper - Heavyweight A3+, A3, A4 Premium Glossy Photo Paper A3+, A3, A4, 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 in.), 329 mm x 10 m, 210 mm x 10 m (Roll paper) Premium Semigloss Photo Paper A3+, A3, A4, 329 mm x 10 m, 210 mm x 10 m, 100 mm x 8 m (Roll paper) Archival Matte Paper A3+, A3, A4 Watercolor Paper-Radiant White A3+ Velvet Fine Art Paper A3+ Ensure the output tray is in the correct position as if the tray is too low and the paper "falls" down into the tray the weight of the paper could pull the last few millimeters of paper out of the exit rollers, causing the band.
