In the printer properties when you choose print, choose custom and you have sliders for altering the colour you need to spend some time creating a colour profile map and save it in the printer program. print a small test pic after each adjustment until you get it the way you like it

What paper are you using?

What photo programme are you printing from?. I seem to recall reading recently that someone found that prints from Paint shop pro had a very slight magenta tinge. This was cured when printed from another programme.

As woodchip says, you can also make adjustments to individual colours using the sliders in "custom". I take it that the ink status monitor shows sufficient colour ink.

I use Epson Photoquicker 3.4 which came packaged with my 830 printer. Results are excellent. Email me if you cannot get hold of a copy.

Because this will show at once whether the printer can do what it should, regardless of the camera or your software.

Try Windows test page....where do i go to for this test cheers

using choice inks....could it be dodgy batch...

Find your printer in Control Panel then right click on the printer. ......... Choose properties and left click.
This should bring up a window in "General".............. Click on the Print Test Page button.

You won't have much colour to look at, but the windows logo should have clear bright primary colour, and the rest is mono. If the colours are muddy or banded then the answer lies in your printer, if not then it is back to this forum!!

poor quality photo paper will give this outcome, use the Epson premium glossy photo paper or equivalent that came with printer.
