I’ve been looking for answers in the board but I haven’t found much answers for this. From night to day my prints have been coming out all over the place, beyond color correction prior to printing, looks as if all the Light Blacks were clogged and everything is overly yellow. I printed a nozzle check and everything is there. I printed a grey chart from PS as well and everything is there. I’ve been using the appropriate ICC profiles and then tried using a regular sRGB profile and surprisingly it actually gave me something way closer to what the image is and looks like all the blacks are printing, etc. I re-downloaded the ICC profile I’m using to see if the file was broken but still the same issue.
Last year I replaced the Magenta and Light Magenta to the vivid ones in order to make it a 3880 inkset even though I own a 3800, but it’s been a while since that and don’t think that’s the issue considering the sRGB ICC print looks more or less normal. I experienced the issue using Entrada 300, then started troubleshooting with Inkpress Duo Matte 80.
Here are my specs:
Epson 3800 printing wirelessly
Photoshop CC 2015.5
TIFF file in adobeRGB
Macbook OS X 10.9.5
Inkpress duo matte 80
ConeColor PRO K3 (with the exception of M and LM which are Vivid)
I’m attaching the print tests stating what ICC they used, these are the tests on ink press and the dialog boxes with the usual settings. I soft-proofed with PS using these profiles and nothing strange shows up there. Only thing I have left to try is print via USB I think. Any ideas? Is my printer having identity issues?? All the cartridges have enough ink. I’ll attach a JPEG of the file I’m printing for reference as well.
