i have a refurbed 7600 that ive got working. sorting through problems with dead channels etc.
now all is good physically. ive inherited an K7 ink set and they have been installed in the correct (i hope positions)
i have topped up shade #5 with a recently purchased bottle. i dont know how old th eother inks are though.
using print-tool on el capitan “no-color management” selecting curve k7-2880-EpEnhancedmatte and printing on ep archival matte (the same paper form what i can tell)
i get the below result which seems to have strange mid tones and much darker highlights than you would expect form the step wedge in the test image. i attach both.
assuming the k7-2880 curve works and fits the paper then i can only thing that one or more of my cartridges is in the wrong place.
perhaps printing an ink separation test chart will tell me which one. thats my next step.
but i just want to see what people thought about the results from the test print.
any thoughts welcome.
yes im very new to it all and gradually working my way through the process.
many thanks in advance for feedback.
ok for some reason it wont let me upload the jpgs so here they are on this link
