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.
- If you selected Standard-Vivid (Windows) or Normal-Vivid (OS X) as the quality setting in the printer software, try selecting Standard (Windows) or Normal (OS X) instead.
- 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.
- 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.
