Re: Epson R1800 Printer turns OFF
Here is my solution to your problem. Power Failure is not reason here. I think you Epson have a problem inside the circuit board. It has two output, the PRIMARY & SECONDARY Output, one of this are not function due to power or wattage failure. I did encounter such problem but I open my printer and I see inside its nothing but the PCB Board have leak of one of my capacitor inside. If this case is still comes out then better to check that with EPSON PRINTER Technician. And about resetting EEPROM it useless. At least this information give you such ideas why you have this kind of problem. Resolving such problem are not only on talk but let our hands do it also. I tell you one way or another, careful of that maybe it has a short circuit. Good luck!

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.
Is the R1800 the only printer that you have on ythis mac?
If it is make sure it is directly connected to your mac via a USB or Firewire cable.
Trash epson folder from Mac HD-Library- Printers

Under prnter setup utility delete the r1800 printer
Go to finder click on file the find, type com.apple.print, if it find anything drag it all on the trash, it will not disappear from the window ( the prefs and . cache files)
download the latest driver for your r1800 from epson website
epson12113.dmg - 10.3MB - posted on 12/20/
then reinstall it, after reinstalling try to readd th printer and make sure under print using it will say Epson SPR1800 series. If you see guten print/ that is a third party driver. dont use the gutenprint. then try to print, update me for the outcome
