I have 2 Epson 50 printers. They print very different colors

Customer Question

I have 2 Epson 50 printers. They print very different colors for the dark red on myour dvd. Both printers have the same color management settings and both are set up for text. Is there anyway to get them to print the same?

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That could depend upon the inks in them also.

Where did you check on the color management? in the program you are printing from to the two printers (from, I presume, the same computer - but correct me if I'm wrong -) ?

I would advise you, upon reflection, to do two things:

- check whether both printers are using standard OEM-original Epson ink supplies.
- do a 'head cleaning' operation, using the maintenance controls in the printer's Epson-supplied software, on *both* printers. One of them may need it, and it may rectify the difference in color - particularly if one printer has been sitting a while.
