Selected FAQ

Q:
What should I do if the colors in my printout don't match my monitor?
A:
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 Black/Grayscale or Grayscale.
  • Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head 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.
  • 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.
