Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Inkjet Printer

Q:
What should I do if the colors in my printout don't match my monitor?
A:
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:

  • Print a nozzle check pattern. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head.


  • Epson inks, specialty papers, and printers are designed to work together. For the best results, use genuine Epson ink and paper.


  • Make sure you selected the correct Media Settings (Windows) or Printer Settings (Mac OS X) in the printer driver. Or if you're printing from an ICC-compliant application such as Adobe Photoshop, try printing using a color managed workflow.

    Windows



    Mac OS X



  • Check the ink cartridge status. If any ink cartridge is low, you may need to replace it to improve print quality.
