The attached is what I sent yesterday and how I am usually set up and what it looked like when things worked. I have printed both ways use in the ICC profiles and not using them. I am getting the same shift in color. I just ran a print using the ICC profile again as you described in the forum and the same thing has happened.
I think that you are indicating that no matter if you print correctly or incorrectly you see the same results. So, that would not be consistent with how the Epson printer driver works. When you turn on color management at the driver and you turn it off at the driver - the outputs would be dramatically different from each other. You say they are the same. So, this would indicate that your printer driver is not working consistently (if you are using it correctly), and that you will need to reinstall the latest Epson printer driver. This adds another layer of complication in trying to assist you. I am trying to help you - but you are all over the map (as they say…)
Again…To use the Epson printer with ICCs profiles, you must follow the instructions supplied by Epson. My instructions to you previously are in accordance with that best practices method. A custom ICC Printer Profile is selected in the Application (Lightroom). Color management is turned off at the printer driver. What you indicate you are doing is that you are either not selecting the custom ICC Printer Profile or you are selecting it but not turning off color management at the driver. Both are incorrect.
What you call ‘things working’ is not being produced from a correct workflow - but it produces color that you like. Our inks work with color management. You are not using color management. If you use color management - the color produced will be correct. However, it will not match what you “liked” with your incorrect workflow.
So your options are to continue in the seat of the pants method that you have been employing and find some new experimental way to work with the new ink set - or to follow our instructions and use color management correctly. Unfortunately, the images you have been printing have been done with an experimental workflow. This puts you in a very difficult position to continue with these images over a long period of time in which you will either change inks or change printers. My recommendation for you is to adopt correct printing technique that uses color management properly. I hope that you will!
