Default Epson R300 Too much red

I just purchased a R300. The pictures for the most part are fantastic except for my pictures seem to have too much red in them. Whites are not comming out white they are a light pink, and everything pink or red is much more intense than it is supposed to be. Before I waste bunch of photo paper and ink, what settings are best to tinker with to fix this? (Color Managment, Color Mode, Gamma, etc..)

I also purchased this dam-n printer to print the photos better but I disapointed that it prints very bad photos.blur and red pictures.
but I thought I can print better and net photoes with it.I also have a very cheap printer more ; HP 3550. This printer prints greater photoes than R300.So I gave R300 to my brother(for text prints :twisted: )and I continue print with my cheap HP 3550 :evil:

besides I read the steves reviews about R300 before I purchased it :twisted:

sounds strange. Are you sure that you have all the settings done correct?

What else setting can be?

all the time adjust it and try it,adjust it and try,adjust-try-adjust-try

ooooooh what's that? ink level down half.

Furthermore R300 is a so stupid printer,if only one color empitied or decreased,it stops.
it says i dont work anymore because one of my cartridges is empty(if it's not completely empty)This is because of the silly chip in the cartridge....Pöööhhhh..

in what program do you print from? Photoshop? Then perhaps the wrong color profile is added.

I didnt mean that you should try many different settings, but sometimes a completely wrong setting is used. When printing on my 1290 for example with original inks, the setting Color Control must be used and so on... so go through that. It shouldnt be too much red. Perhaps the printer believes you are using a different paper than you do?
