My printout has incorrect colors. What should I do?

  • If your printouts have incorrect colors, try these solutions:

    • Make sure the Advanced B&W Photo, 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.
    • 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.
    • Try turning off the PhotoEnhance setting in Windows.
    • Try adjusting the Gamma setting.
    • For best results, use genuine Epson ink and paper.
