EPSON STYLUS 9600 CANNOT PRINT COLORS CORRECTLY ON OTHER APPLICATIONS EXCEPT ADOBE READER
Im using Windows XP pro and ORIOS COLOR TUNER is installed on the XP PC.When l print from Adobe Reader the colors come out ok, but when l try paint, ms office etc the colors do not come out correctly.For example Red comes out as purple.Can somebody help me,l have tried everything
I think you should cjoose the right profile for the paper you are using, for example if your using a photo paper you should choose photo paper in the type of media in printer properties. try this and might solve your problem.
While there is not a lot of information to go on, I think you have color space/profile issues.
Almost everything Adobe uses AdobeRGB and everything MS uses sRGB. I had similar issues although not quite as severe. Sometimes I even had to restart the computer between jobs in order to get the right profile loaded in all devices.
Finally, I got all my settings to match (AdobeRGB) on the computer, software, and printer. I had to calibrate my screen. The accuracy of the color on my 9600 and other devices improved dramatically.
Hope this helps.

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 epson.com
your problem is about profiles. The gutenprint is the only way to print from intel to r1800, but this driver don't use the same ICC profiles. You have to use one of three solutions below: 1 the best, you have a profile calibrating device, you make a profile of your couple ink-paper and you convert your document into this ICC profile. 2 you convert your picture into your software in one of the Epson generic profiles (hey probably still are on your computer) and you print whithout color managment 3 (awful) you anticipate the color distorsion and you tune your picture to be bad on the screen but pretty good on paper.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
I was also having problems with my Epson scanner on my iMac. I read that the best way to solve Epson's problems is to (1) uninstall all Epson software from your HD, and (2) download the appropriate drivers from Epson and install them.
Note: The Epson R1800 has two drivers: the most recent is an update. So, you must first download and install the Printer Driver v6.12. When that's done, then download and install Printer Driver Update v1.02.
I did that and I still got dark prints. Then I got an inspiration. In the Print dialogue box, I changed my Printer Profile to the paper I was using, Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper, instead of using sRGB and/or Adobe RGB. Specifically, I used SPR1800 PrmLstr PhotoRPM.icc. The next test print was virtually spot on to what was displayed on the screen. I am now a VERY happy camper.
Please pass this info onto anyone else who can use it.
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..
