My printout has incorrect colors. What should I do?

    If your printouts have incorrect colors, try these solutions:

    • Make sure the Black/Grayscale or Grayscale setting is not selected in your printer software.
    • Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if necessary.
    • 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.
