Question about Epson Stylus Photo R2400 InkJet Printer
My Epson printer prints too dark, colours not vibrant. Monitor is calibrated, colour managemrnt settings set as told by help line. Had this printer over a year now not a decent print yet I also have a Canon s9000 no problems with this at all and yes I am using the profiles.
In advanced mode check ICM and open settings. Select picture profile that is correct for your files. You might have to check "more profiles" box on bottom to see all avaliable. I use Nikon raw files with almost(*) profiled Dell Ultrasharp flat screen and my own paper profile. Print matches screen almost perfectly. Without procedure that I just described prints were 1.5 f-stops darker then screen.
Procedure was written from memory, I hope it's accurate enogh.
Simple advice, for trials use small pieces of paper and fast print. Ink and paper are expensive!
(*)Using Color Munki I cannot set brightness low enogh to null the reading on this monitor.
Good luck SalB

Hi I dont wish to sound patronising as im sure you have tried most things but getting decent colour prints can be a minefield and although you can get lucky with some prints to get consistent colours involves a fair degree of knowlege and a meticulous approach. As well as checking your monitor is calibrated, ensure eveything and i mean everything is set correctly in photoshop and your printer settings,this will then give you reasonable prints. Recheck your Photoshop colour settings, photoshop print settings and then finally Epson printer settings. Just one box incorrectly setup can undo the whole process. If you know some with the same printer/photoshop who is printing ok note all their settings, failing that try a good book/web resource. Best of luck Paul

Try these :
1. nozzle check
2. image set to RGB color (Photoshop)
3. check driver settings
4. try another file
5. try another application
6. ¨supported / recommended¨ epson paper & inks
7. another computer (to pin down where issue is happening)
8. all else fails - the printer needs service (better check your warranty status)
