Selected FAQ

Q:
What should I do if the colors in my printout don't match my monitor?
A:
Your monitor and the product 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 matches the paper you loaded.


  • Make sure the Black/Grayscale or Grayscale setting is not selected in your printer software.


  • Clean the print head.


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


  • Your printed colors can never exactly match your on-screen colors. However, you can use a color management system to get as close as possible. Try using the color management options in your printer software.


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