Several months ago I bought new carts and ConeColor Pro ink. Printing was great for several weeks. Then after a break of a month, during which I printed a nozzle check every week, prints suddenly went darker and duller.
Trying to troubleshoot has led to some confusion. Along with the Windows 10/Photoshop comp I usually print from I have two others that can are also producing the same problem via the Paint program. I’m wondering if there might be a driver setting I’m missing.
On the Photoshop comp I have the printer set to No Color Adjustment and Photoshop Manages Colors. I’m using an ICC profile for the paper, and I’ve used a Spyder to color calibrate my monitor. This was working. So I’m looking into Windows settings and considering the possibility that I’ve run into yet another problem created by a Windows update.
Opening up Windows Device Color Management reveals options for the R3000:
- a check box to use “my settings” for this device, whatever that means
- a profile selection option, either Automatic or Manual
- and a number of paper ICCs.
I would like to get Windows 10 out of the way but am not sure what settings are correct. Help would be great. Thanks.
