Epson Stylus Photo R2000 Inkjet Printer

Selected FAQ

Q:
What should I do if my printout has incorrect or missing colors?
A:
The problem could be due to a software setting, the product's condition, or the paper you're using. Check the following:

  • Make sure the Mac OS X printer software is not set to print in Grayscale.


  • The print head nozzles may need cleaning.


  • The ink cartridges may be old or low on ink, and you may need to replace them.


  • Try turning off Photo Enhance in the Windows printer software.


  • Try changing the Gamma setting in your Windows or Mac OS X printer software.


  • Your printed colors can never exactly match your on-screen colors. However, you can use a color management system in Windows or Mac OS X to get as close as possible or use a color-managed workflow.


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