Epson Stylus Color IIs Ink Jet Printer

Selected FAQ

My text looks dark gray. How can I get the printer to print my text a truer black?
First, make sure the black cartridge is installed and the economy light on the printer is not on. This will ensure that the economy mode option is not selected. Perform a black cleaning cycle; (BLACK Cleaning) Press the PAUSE button, then ALT and Pause. Run the print demo to see if printing has improved (Power on the Printer while holding down the ALT-Button). If this does not correct the problem, replace the black ink cartridge. If the black text on the demonstration page is acceptable, the problem may be a setting in the printer driver. The monochrome setting in the driver will produce a truer black than the color setting. Enabling "microweave" and "disabling ink density correction" within the Stylus COLOR IIs printer will also give a darker truer black output.
