What should I do if the colors in my printout don't match my monitor?
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
- Run a nozzle check to see if
any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if
- The ink cartridges may be
old or low on ink, and you may need to replace them.
- For best results, use genuine Epson ink and paper.
- 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.
- 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.
