    Epson Artisan 1430 printing problems

    Becasine67 Community Member

      When using PSE 9 to control printing using a paper-specific ICC profile (as I am used to doing), all output from my new Epson Artisan 1430 A3+ printer had a green cast. This was not a problem when printing the same images to a Canon A4 printer. After trying many variations, I could obtain acceptable output if I had the printer rather than PSE control output with Printer Preferences set to Colour Controls>AdobeRGB.

      A review of this printer from what I consider a highly credible source (http://www.photoreview.com.au/reviews/printers/epson-artisan-1430-inkjet-printer) stated that similar results could be obtained with either PSE or the printer controlling output. (Incidently, using another software package to print (Corel PaintShop Pro 4) also gave atrocious results.)

      Checking with Espon support, I have the most current version of the Epson drivers.

       

      1) Should I just accept that I need to abandon what is generally accepted as best practice and have the Espon control output rather than PSE

      or

      2) Do I have a faulty printer?
