Epson R200 - Problems printing on Glossy Paper

I have an Epsoon R200 and think it's a great printer for the money.

Prints my CD & DVD's perfectly and also prints out normal paper really well.

But I boughts some Epson 7x5 Photo Glossy paper and the prints are coming out terrible all the colour is out and dark.

I make sure I set the right setting in the prining preferences but it still does it.

Anyone got any helpfull advice on resolving this.

Regards

Ricky

I had a similar problem, on the settings page select ICM, then it is either select No Colour adjustment, or not - Cant remember that part!

Let me know if it helps!

Not had the dark problem yet but do any of you have probs printing greyscale photos?

Found if I select any paper type other than plain the printout had a greenish tint to it even if it's set to greyscale in the advanced options.

Gonna download the later drivers and will try those.. thanks for the link.

Tried setting to ICM and no colour adjustment but made no difference.

I'm using SP1 so am not sure whether I can use the tip by "hairymel2"

Thanks guys hope someone else has some more ideas

Had the same problem and was well miffed. But the above worked for me and my prints are perfect and no longer dark. And I am only using SP1

print
properties
advanced
tick icm
make sure no colour adjustment is not ticked.

Had the same problem first time I tried printing on photo paper ended up using loads of it.
Try going into printing preferences and then advanced, set the contrast quite low (minus) worked for me.
Hope this helps

There is a problem with the epson drivers, 2 cures are

1) download the latest drivers from the epson site (v5.5 I think) or
2) if using photoshop, print with preview, select "let photoshop choose the colours"

Updated the drivers and worked a treat. Still can't understand how the CD/DVD tray printed fine but glossy pics went dark.

But problem solved so more than Happy
Thanks
