Epson Stylus CX4450

Selected FAQ

Q:
What should I do if the printout has incorrect or missing colors?
A:
The problem could be due to a software setting, the condition of the Epson Stylus CX, or the paper you’re using. Check the following:

  • Make sure your Windows or Macintosh printer software is not set to use black ink only.


  • 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 PhotoEnhance in the Windows printer software.


  • On a Macintosh, try using Automatic mode.


  • Try changing the Gamma setting in your Windows or Macintosh printer software.


  • 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 ICM (Windows) or ColorSync (Macintosh) setting.


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