R200 Color problem with windows

I have had my printer for Years. ALways worked great and printed good pictures - as long as I was printing from Epson's Film Factory. Every time (in the past) that I tried to print from ANY windows program, the color was OFF. Usually way red adn stuff would print purple. Anyway, I haven't printed photos for some time, and went to do so today when I discovered Film Factory was not on my computer since I switched to Vista. I attempted to print my photos from Windows again, with the same trouble. Since Film Factory is no longer supported (discontinued), I don't know how to print my pitures with correct color. Any suggestions would be great.

HI-

Do a selftest, print a nozzle check pattern and run head cleaning cycles thrice, try printing from different application as well. Film Factory is not compatible with Vista.

Hope this helps

Goodluck.

Most ink jet printers have a self cleaning you can do.
The fact that you're getting shades of green usually indicate that the red is not printing properly.

Self cleaning should take care of it

Photo R200 won't print


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Brown spots appear on the right of prints


I finally fixed it by printing in glossy mode on a thick and rough paper used for manual drawings. A bit of dust came off from under the print head and now it prints clean again.

Photo prints are very dark and muddy


Hey,

I also have this problem. I even have prints that were made when I first got the printer about 2 years ago, which looked great then and now, and the EXACT same picture from the same program prints incredibly (unusably) dark.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Won't print


Hi,
you should have a toolkit if the printer software is installed.
this should allow you to view printer preferences et,c.
Ink Levels. page sizes prefs. and general print options.
Try Start/Printer Or go into Control Panel/Printers Right click on your printer and select Properties.
Theres also a way, to lift the lid. press the Ink Button. And the cartridge should Move to the desired Low Cartridge Arrow.
Alternative is to print a test page, to see which colour is Missing.

  1. Set up your computer.
  2. Connect your Epson product to your computer.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions that Windows Vista displays to guide you through product driver installation.
You need to use a program that can do printing multiple pictures in just one click.
