How different is the color from the printer with the screen? If, you can see yellow, but the printer prints a shade of green, then your ink (particularly the cyan color) may be leaking. Check your ink cartridges if there are leaks. If there are none, try printing blocks of colors and see if the colors match with the screen. If they don't match, maybe try using a different monitor and see if the problem persists.

Printed colours doesn't match with monitor colours


Here is a list of reasons why colours on electronic designs might differ from printed designs:
  • Monitors work in the RGB (Red,Green,Blue) colour space while printers use the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colour space.
    Designs look fine on a monitor if they are designed in RGB to begin with. Converting them to CMYK might make them look odd on screen, but they will print correctly, to a certain measure. It is difficult to sign of an image file that is currently in CMYK mode while viewing with an RGB monitor.
  • Monitor settings differ.
    The designer was sitting in a darkish room when choosing the blue and his blue looks vibrant. The client was viewing the same design in a well-lit room, making the blue seem lighter. The designer uses an LCD display and the client uses a CRT monitor and the vibrancy differs. The contrast and saturation settings on each monitor might differ as well, rendering the blue with different values.
  • Each printer in the world prints colour slightly different.
    Sometimes it is really obvious and sometimes it is almost impossible to see the difference. Normal desktop printers are definitely not something to do colour proofing with. If you print the design out on your desktop printer then a slight shortage on any of the colours will make the colour come out wrong. There are a lot of factors that can influence even the most expensive printing equipment. These include altitude, humidity, the current heat of the printer, age of the printer, quality of ink, the paper that is being used, special coatings on the paper etc. Even viewing the same printed material in different lighting conditions may make the colour seem different.
Tips on getting the most accurate colour
Go to your nearest printer company and ask to see their Pantone colour matching system. Each colour in the Pantone chart has a matching number. Most design applications have the same Pantone charts built in so that colour matching is easy. Read up on Pantone at Wikipedia. Make sure that the file is converted to CMYK (If not designed in it originally) before sending it to print. Some printer companies might ask for colour separation prints which the leading design packages can produce. It is also important for the designer to choose the correct colour management profile in the design package.

Ap3800c will not print the colour it sees


So the quality is good, it's just not "exactly" like the screen? It never will be "exact". Depending on what you're describing, if the colour is off, it could need the drum(s) or Development unit(s) replaced to improve the quality; however, if your just talking about "matching" the screen colour, you could line up 100 different printers and you'd get 100 different outputs....it's not an exact science. Perhaps you're using a generic toner vs. the OEM brand, this would change your results too.
There are also 3 different printer "languages" (drivers) that the printer can print with: RPCS, PCL 5c, and Postscript 3. All of which will give slightly different print qualities. You may want to try installing a different driver than you're using, and you may prefer the output. Postscript 3 is the best in my opinion.
you can go to this link, select your OS, and download another driver:

I hope this helps.

COLOURS PRINTED DO NOT MATCH SCREEN COLOURS OF ITEMS


I would try cleaning off the nozles on your print cartridges. If that doesn't help, replace them altogether.

Print color different than on-screen color


Doe sthe nozzle check show ANY gaps? If not the n the colour difference is most likely down to the colour profile on your system in the software you use.

See if the software or printer vendor offer a colour profile for your OS.

try these :

1. nozzle check

3. check driver settings
4. try another file
5. try another application
6. ¨supported / recommended¨ epson paper & inks
7. another computer (to pin down where issue is happening)

8. all else fails - the printer needs service (better check your warranty status)
