Question about Epson Stylus Photo RX700 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I've taken photos in colour, then gone into Adobe and "converted to black and white" - adjusted the photos with "enhance" so that they are nice and sharp black and white on screen, but when I print them, they have a green/grey hue and are not true black and white.
Any suggestions please?
also - when reading other messages today (I've only just tried black and white printing today) I see that others requests include how to change the waste tray - what is a waste tray and why would it need changing?
First you will have to check the Nozzle of your printer. To do this, press the setup button and select Nozzle Check. Use a plain paper to do this. Press Ok after that. It will print out a pattern for each color. Make sure that the lines are connected to each other specially for black since that you are printing a black and white photo. Lines going across is on a stair case pattern and should be connected to each other. Proceed with cleaning cycle if needed.
You can do a cleaning cycle using your printer of the computer. You can skip this if you have a good Nozzle check.
Press setup then select head cleaning.
Go to utility of the printer and find maintenance. Click on the head cleaning button.
Once that the nozzle are fine, you can now try printing. I strongly suggest that you use other application first instead of Adobe Photoshop. Since that Photoshop uses color management, it can be that the settings are incorrect. Save first the picture that you opened in Photoshop. You can save it on your desktop to easily locate the file. Make sure that the file is in jpeg format. Now to isolate the issue if it is cause by a software or not, try the standard application for your O.S.
Windows O.S. : Windows Picture and Fa Viewer
- right click on the file and select open with.
- select windows picture and fax viewer.
- folow the on screen instuctions.
Note: If you are now on the window on what pinter to use. Make sure that you set the option for printers under preferences to print in gray scale or black only. Select also the correct paper type.
- Proceed with printing.
Mac OSX: Preview or Iphoto
- open the picture under one of the application.
- click file then print.
- Make sure printer is selected.
- underneath the print option, you will have to go to print setting.
- find the option that says color then select black.
- select the appropriate settings for paper.
- the click on print.
Now see if it did print out corectly. If it did, it means that the appplication is the one causing this. If you are familiar with the color manage features of the application Photoshop. Let Photoshop handles the color. After getting to the widow what printer to use, to the the preferences of the printer and select the correct paper type. You will have to find the color management of the printer.
For Windows, It under the advance option under the main tab. Select off no color adjustment.
For Mac instead of going to print setting, find color manage and turn it off. Select off no color adjustment.
Then try printing.
Regarding your other question, If the printer is producing excess inks on your print out when ot comes to black printing and color printing, that pad needs replacement.
