Hahnemühle German Etching - Epson R2880

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by george_doumani, Oct 9, 2017.

  1. Hi,

    I am having enormous trouble getting my Epson R2880 to recognise the rear feeder tray is attached and thereby being able to select "velvet fine art" as the media type from the Epson printer settings window. Velvet Fine Art is the recommended media setting.

    I have installed the Hahnemuhle profile for the R2880 and German Etching, and selected it in the print dialogue box along with Photoshop manage colours. I've also switched my photo black ink cartridge to mat black.

    Does anyone have any idea why I cannot get this combination to work?

    Thanks in advance.

    George
     
  2. Is driver updated?
     
  3. I believe so. Will check (when I get home this evening). I was under the impression the Epson printer drivers updated automatically via OS updates (Mac OS X)?
     
  4. 2880 kind of old, check Epson website.
     
  5. No drivers are issued for Mac OS Mavericks it seems? The latest driver for Mac OS seems to be for Siera?
     
  6. It is the way they tell us " it is time for new printer".
     
  7. I am so sick of that upgrade because we force you too. It's a fantastic printer and a professional model at that. It was only replaced a few years ago.
     
  8. Tell me me about that, my Lightroom 4 doesn't want read Sony files, my Mac Pro 2008 which is fine for my needs, not supported from now on.
     
  9. Convert to DNG (free). Update LR (not free).
     
  10. I know , it is extra step in processing. Capture one free with Sony, but it extra step also. I hate subscriptions.
     
  11. You don't have to subscribe to anything to fix your problem.
     
  12. Owned an R2880 since forever and I hate it. How its never been launched out the window I'll never know as I'm not known for my patience. Its ok with anything but the paper I want to use, Velvet Fine Art A3+. I've tried every which way.....odd thing is, when you get one sheet to load, you can normally get on a roll and do several, But I've sweated for 2 hours or more sometimes to get the first one to load and then given up. When it works its ok......but I've probably had 30 prints from it in 15 years
