Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1900 InkJet Printer
1. print comes out blurry 2. green turns out yellow 3. black turns out cyan HELP!
Remove ink catridges and clean print head, shake inks and reinstall the inks, if problem persist, Uninstall the driver and reinstall. thats should help. Some time if the print head are dirty it prints multi color. You have to make sure the Head is Clean and install th inks properly.

IT IS POSSABLE THAT THE PRINT HEAD ARE DIRTY THEY HAHVE MATCHING BOARDS TO THE TONER CARTRIDGE BOARDS UNPLUG THE MACHINE AND CLEAN THE PRINT HEAD WITH ALCOHOL IF IT DOESN'T WORK THE BOARDS HAVE FAILED

directly hooking the printer to mac and windows computer are you getting bandings still? interesting issue... we will isolate it first by trying to hook printer directly to both computer, if its printing fine when directly connected, then there is something on the application or communication process. try printing a different document using same application when on the network and try printing from different application as well. update me afterwards..

Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed
at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just
throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA
ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson.
If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to
a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!
The C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!
Thanks for reading!

SOURCE: R200 will not print black color
Sounds like maybe the chips on the cartridges aren't making proper
contact. Have you tried removing the black cartridge and reinserting?
How long did it take you to replace all the color cartridges? If it sat uncapped for very long, the black may simply be clogged. Often a few drops of Windex with Ammonia D (not the lemony stuff!) on the purge/park pad will do it.
With the lid up turn it on, and as soon as the heads are unparked pull the plug. Very gently, slide the print head out of the way. With an eyedropper, put a few drops of Windex with Ammonia D on the park pad, enough to make it obviously damp but not overflowing. If it is all gummed up, you'll need to clean it. In that case look here for more detailed instructions:
My printer cleaning site is kind of rough, I wrote answers to others and got tired of retyping and just saved a few.
If the park pad is not all gummed up, then gently slide the print head all the way back over the park pad. As you do, the park pad automatically comes up under the print head so don't worry about it drying out. Leave it for a few hours or overnight before plugging it in and turning it on again, then run a cleaning cycle and try a nozzle check.
Never run more than 3 cleaning cycles in a row without printing -something-, even if it is just a nozzle check. And never -ever- move the print head manually while the printer is plugged in.
