I have had my R1800 for almost on eyear and have not been satisfied. Every print is much darker than is appears on screen. Before the barrage of questions: Yes, I have calibrated my color management system. I have set my monitor and even tried custom printer drivers with my Monaco software. It yields poor color rendition if I much with the driver too much. I am using the latest drivers and ICC profiles I am allowing Photochop CS3 to control things, all the Epson settings are off. I have checked and rechecked. I have used HP el-cheapo printers and had dead-on results I have read numerous threads on dark prints with no real solution except that it may be a printer fault I hope I am missing something but I am at wits end. The printer must go as I am gearing up to sell images. I am prepared to replace the printer unless somebody has a solution that I have overlooked (I am all ears or eyes). I have not seen threads on printing problems with the R1900 and the vivid colors/saturation is what I am looking for anyway. I don't do B&W and tend to print glossy or peral. Any thoughts for a frustrated phot guy?
