AuthorSubject: Epson 2200 B&W; Green Cast   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Well I went out and finally bought a new Epson 2200 to replace my
aging 1280. I am getting a custom profile made through you guys for
Enhanced Matte paper as this is what I will be using the most for
my prints. I my monitor calibrated and profiled with the ColorVision
Spyder and Optical.

So far the profile that ships with the printer is doing a pretty good
job with the Enhanced Matte in color. I decided to see how well it did
with the B&W; pictures. And yes I am using the Matte Black ink for the
Matte paper. I was very surprised to see my B&W; prints comming out with
a very noticeable green tint. Looked very bad.

So I told myself, no sweat, we'll just get the Gray Balancer that I have
read so much about and tweek out this nasty green tint. I was able to
find an english copy from a link on a Russian web site. I got may hands
on a new Kodak Gray Scale card with the 19 steps of gray, and started to
work on it using the provide pdf and the tutorial on the iphoto web site.

Well to my dismay, the test patterns that where printing out were not even
close to the Gray Scale. I did the Realignment many times and still could
not get very close at all to the Kodak scale. This solution was not bearing
any fruit and I have gone through 25 sheets of Enhanced Matte and a lot of
ink. I tried to play with the curve tool also, but no joy.

So, I guess my real question is, should I just not worry about it and have
a custom B&W; profile created for my Enhanced Matte, as I am with the color
profile. Or should I go back to my 1280 for B&W;, as this printer gives
much better results compared to this ugly green tint.

Thanks for any wisdom any of you may have regarding this issue.
