Question about Sony Mavica MVC-CD400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

PIM and CD400

I am trying to print photos from my CD400 using Adobe Elements and the PIM plug0in from epson. I have an Epson 785EPX. No matter whether I am downloading directly off the camera or trying to open files already on the computer, the Open button in Elements is not available as if the JPEG's were not PIM compatible. Anyone else have this problem with sony images? Any ideas for how to get the photos to open in elements?

Try import instead of open, then click print image matching. This is how it works in PS7.

No Windows 7 driver for Epson Stylus Photo 785EPX printer

There is a driver--it's provided by the Microsoft website. While your computer is connected to the Internet, connect your 785EPX to your computer via USB and then turn the printer on. The driver will auto download and install. I just did this on an HP DV7 laptop and the printer works fine, showing ink levels, too, though you have to access the printer properties to see this.

Epson 785epx has sponge type material in the paper tray which came from underneath the guide bar for the ink cartridges. Printer goes through the printing cycle with no ink on the page.

The sponge is the head cleaner. It cleans the dried ink off the print headwhen you start a print job. If you don't replace it, your print head or cartridge will be ruined.

Epson Stylus Photo R340 Faces in photo are printing day-glo green

Possible printhead or driver issue.
Are you using Adobe photoshop? Please try to print also using a different application to isolate the issue.
Make sure that you are using correct epson cartridges.
Please print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing colors or missing lines on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver.
If the nozzle check pattern printed out successfully, please trash and re-install the drivers. The driver is available on

Black and White photo printing problems on Epson 1400

Be sure your printer is not set on color. You will need the setting on black only for black and white.

New Canon Rebel xti photos won't print on my Epson Photo R320

Re-install the printer after downloading the latest driver from Epson. It is quite likely that the Canon software has over written the colour profile for the Epson.

How do I calibrate my monitor? I have a new epson 3100z and a Epson photo Printer890... PIM is a joke..... I use adobe for image editing and image expert to print... My photos look great on the monitor but...

PIM uses the exif-info in your original jpg. I'm not sure, but I think if you edit the picture this exif becomes useless (because it relates to the original), even if you save the file including the exif-info. Also, you apparently you need additional printing software to make use of PIM. This was in the news on this site sometime ago. If you search, you can find out where to download this software. If you've got photoshop, you should also have a program called adobe gamma. With this you can calibrate your monitor. You should be able to find it under start->configuration. When you have calibrated your monitor, you should of course not use the settings on your printer that push up the saturation/contrast of your images, or else you will get Disney-colors. (I made the mistake of using 'digital camera correction' on the 1270 myself). I get good results printing from photoshop, with a calibrated monitor as well as some media profiles for the paper I use (just calibrating your monitor will probably be enough to get pictures that are close to what is on the screen, I just haven't tried that yet). If you want to calibrate your monitor, there are some good tips on (it's where I got what I know about this). Btw, I cant seem to reach the site right now, but it will probably be up again in a few hours.
