epson 3800 with lountain lion- strange colour cast
« on: May 17, 2013, 12:06:06 AM »

i am printing a lot to epson archival matte paper and have created a profile for that paper, which used to be very colouraccurate.
now when i print i am getting a weird magenta colour cast with that paper.
same with my profile as with the other profiles epson offers for matte paper in the printing dialogue.
the new printerdriver offers 3 different matte option, each with a different profile associated to it.
now i'm aware that when i choose a paper profile in LR, the epson colour management should be deactivated and it is greyed out indeed.
but when i look at preset dialogue i see that it changes profiles according to the sort of matte paper i choose in the printing dialogue.
this could be normal and not affecting the output since the epson CM is deactivated anyway, but i noticed when i tried to find out what's going on.
so why does my profile not produce the colours anymore that it did 3 months ago?
i checked the file and it's in prophoto, same as always.
any ideas?
now on 10.8.3 ML

P.S.just printed another file on epson archival matte.
orig. looks like this(colour)
print looks like this(pic of print)
not kidding !!!

Looks more like clogged nozzles to me. 
Possible?  Or already checked?
