I had the Epson 2200 printer but returned it about three hours after I set it up (this is a year or so ago). The reason, those portions of the printed image that were white or really light seemed to not have any ink on them. They looked funny looking straight at them and even worse on any sort of angle.

It was as though the printer forgot to print those spots.

Is this the norm with Dye Sub printers or was it specific to the Epson printer?

Thank you in advance.

P.S. Sorry..the title should be Whites NOT Whies. Woops

Light areas use very little dye. White areas use no dye. The paper is white so why put a white ink on it? This is how all printers work. If the printer wasn't printing very light areas then eitehr your monitor, printer, or both, were not calibrated properly.
