Epson B-500DN Business Color Inkjet Printer

Selected FAQ

The colors in the image on my monitor do not match the output from my printer. What's wrong?
Your monitor and the printer use different technologies to represent colors, so your printed colors can't match your screen colors exactly. Try increasing your monitor's color palette to view a greater range of colors, and then try the following:

  • Make sure the paper Type or Media Type setting in the printer software matches the paper you loaded.

  • For Windows, clear the Grayscale setting in the Advanced window in your printer driver. For Mac OS X, change the Color setting to Color in the Print Settings of your printer driver.

  • Adjust the color settings in your application or in your printer driver settings.

  • If you're using color management in your application, turn off the color-management function in the printer driver.

  • For best results, use genuine Epson ink and paper.
