Customer Question
when I do a nozzel...
I only get 6 patterns printed on on my Epson 3800 Stylus Pro when I do a nozzel check. I also need a step by step rundown on printing out an image from my MAC OX 10.4.11. The images lack a full color range and all the cartridges are full.

How old is your printer?

Also has it always preformed this way?

My printer is 7 years old. Ontil very recently is has not only done good ink jet prints, but negatives on Pictorico for making Platinum prints. I don't understand why it's only show 6 out of 9 ink patterns when I Nozzle Check, and I really need a brush-up on exactly how to go from my final photoshopped image to a good print.Thank you,Lear Levin

I've done them several times including the Maintenance procedure. I jut don't understand why I get only 6 color patterns.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I've also extracted each ink cartridge and re-entered them into their compartments.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What next? I would really like to get this solved.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
How long do I have to wait? I need this printer to get online or get it to a repair shop, ASAP.Lear

Do you mean that you are only seeing 6 of 9 nozzles working ? If so that would mean a bad or clogged printhead

Do I have to take the printer to a repair place or is there any way that I can remedy the problems myself?
Technician: Robert M., Consultant replied 2 years ago

Nothing easy. The printhead is not easily removable. And probably costs more than a new printer to replace

The only solutions are to switch it to using refillable ink tanks and then flush cleaning solution through them forcing it through the inkjets to clean them.

There are several kits available to do it but I don't know that it's worth it on a 7 year old printer

if my next step to to take the printer in for a professional cleaning, I would still like to have you take me step by step in detail through the entire procedure for printing my photoshopped files. Including proper settings for selecting Color in Levels, Color Settings, Assigning Profile (Epson Premium lossy Paper) Converting to Profile, Printer Setting, Formating, and all the necessary adjustments for issuing a finished print (whether to turn off color controls, etc, etc.Please let me know if this will be possible.Thank You,Lear
Technician: Robert M., Consultant replied 2 years ago

I could try but tbh if you do this professionally you probably know more about the proper print setting than I do. I concentrate on making sure they work. How to get the prints looking their best I usually leave to the users unless their is a major problem

Generally you want to let Photoshop handle the color management rather than the printer driver
