Epson Stylus Color IIs Ink Jet Printer

Selected FAQ

The output I am getting is unacceptable. What can I do to improve the quality?
Make sure the economy light on the printer is not on, and if printing on Epson special coated paper, check to ensure that the you are printing on the coated side of the paper. If the Economy light is on, hold down the ALT button, and press Load/Eject until both Economy/Condensed lights are off. Economy mode is only intended for printing rough drafts and should not be enabled for normal print. Try printing again. If printing has not improved, perform a cleaning cycle (COLOR Cleaning) Press the PAUSE button, then ALT and Print Mode, or (BLACK Cleaning) Press the PAUSE button, then ALT and Pause. Print the demo page to see if printing has improved (Power on the printer while holding down the ALT button for 10 seconds; until data light comes on or paper loads). If the quality is acceptable, verify that the correct driver is selected as the default driver. Make sure that COLOR is selected in the driver. Ensure that HALFTONING is NOT selected in the driver. Manipulate the Stylus driver settings. You may also want to manipulate the settings within the application to achieve the optimum print results. If the quality from the demo page is not acceptable, check the type of paper being used. The EPSON special coated paper which is specifically made for the Stylus inkjet series printers, delivers the best printed output. If the problem persists, replace the ink cartridge. The trouble shooting guide located in chapter six of the Users Manual provides additional information. If the print quality is still unacceptable, have the printer sent in for repair.
