Re: [BKARTS] Epson Printer Problem



It sounds like a profile problem. Do you have a RIP?
When you switch to Black do you mean that you do it in the driver, or in the image file through Photoshop?


When you print gray, there is no such thing as neutral gray. There are tones of gray even when you desaturate.
Then, the color gray you get is dependant on the profile you use to print it through.


Finally it depends on the mechanical state of the printer, clean heads, good nozzle checks etc. Also it depends on the inks. What kind, dye or pigment. The pigment inks are prone to settling and the cartridges should be gently shaken now and then, providing it is the type of printer that allows you to remove and reinstall them.

No easy answer I'm afraid.

Subject: Epson Printer Problem



Help! My Epson Stylus R800 is hemorrhaging cyan ink! It's always leaned toward cyan when I've printed, but I've managed the problem by minusing cyan when I printed. Now it's even printing cyan when I change from "color" to "black." Yikes.

I've done the nozzle check, cleaned the print heads, only used Epson cartridges, yet the problem has worsened. Epson is no help, just reminding me to do everything I just mentioned. Has anyone had this problem? Does anyone know of an Epson service shop in the SF Bay Area?

Ever hopeful,
Ginnie Mickelson
