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 your printer software is not set to print in Grayscale.


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


  • Run a print head nozzle check to see if any of the nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head if necessary.


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


  • Try turning off Fix Photo in the printer software.


  • Use a color management system. Try using the ICM setting.


  • After you print, the colors on your printout will need some time to set as the ink dries. During this time, the colors may look different than you expect. To reduce the drying time, avoid stacking your prints on top of each other.
