Default Magenta Cast, Epson ET-2550

I have an Epson Ecotank 2550. It's definitely not a photo printer, but it's good enough for me.

Lately the pictures have taken on a magenta/purple cast.

Anyone have any experience with this printer that might shed some light on on it? How do I fix it...

Joe

Can only offer generic advice, to run test patterns to determine if any print nozzles are clogged (part of your printer software package) and run cleaning cycle(s) until the pattern is good. If that isn't the problem, check the dates on the ink tanks - have had outdated ink cause similar problems.

I needed to add yellow ink. The Ecotank printers have huge ink tanks, you just fill the appropriate tank with the appropriate ink.

Thanks!
