Certain colors have dropped out on my Epson P8000
« on: March 09, 2022, 09:16:52 am »

I have pictures attached of the reds and purples not printing. The color chart shows it all. Nozzle check is perfect. Did two head cleans just to make sure. Tried 3 different profiles with all the same results. Made another custom profile with the same poor results. Printed out of Lightroom and Photoshop with no difference. Printed with Printer Manages Color with a 50% improvement but colors are still way off.

Here is a good shot of the missing reds on the Epson compared to the z3200.

Have you tried other papers or "printer manages colors" to see if it's a software problem?

Yes I have tried printer Manages color. The single picture above of the red tails is printer manages color. I am putting another paper in to try now. I printed a canvas in Qimage and it is very close to being correct.
That would make it some sort of color management issue as the two adobe products have poor color.

Cheap Epson double weight matte paper and perfect color. Something (Adobe) is either not reading those profiles or?
I tried 4 different canvas profiles plus the new one I made and they were all bad?
Look at the red chart as well as the red peppers, beautiful color. It is a shot of the print, not a screen shot.

I put the canvas back in and printed using the Epson Series Proofing paper icc profile with Double weight Matte as the media choice and the color was better but not close to the z3200.
Now how to figure out what is going on. Sounds like a call to Adobe rather then Epson.
Any thoughts?

Do you have another computer you can print from?  I'd try that 1st

I do but it was giving me color issues last year so I stopped using it for printing.
I have a new (Last year) iMac 5k running Catalina.
