Running win xp with Epson R200 & R300 printer. On my computer for some reason the dark colours are tinged with dark green, even the grayscale prints. Both the printers are the same even with the driver updates no matter what the settings are. Run both these on the wifes and they work perfectly. I have replaced the printer USB cable. Therefore is it my computer that is at fault and what can I do to correct it? Any ideas, thanks.
In the properties of the Epson printers there is an option to allow Epson to recharge the cartridges. This is done via their own web site. You could give that option a go and see if it resolves the issue?
recap, I have not been able to locate the 'Epson to recharge the cartridges' in the printer properties as you suggested. But I have been on the Epson site and run the 'Printer Diagnosis' this returned "no errors".
woodchip, I run the test and this printed perfectly.
Thank you both, but I have tried the R200 & R300 on my computer with exactly the same result. But on my wifes they both print perfectly. Do you think that there is something wrong with my computer?
This doesn't make too much sense, though I'd have gone with Woodchip's solution. As the test page printed perfectly there's nothing wrong with your computer. That leaves only the colour settings on your photo-editing software - check 'em and if neceassary reinstall the software from scratch, making sure to delete any saved colour profiles along the way.
