I just recently picked up this printer and set it up over the weekend. However, the color photos are not matching whats on the screen. The printed photos appears to have a very unrealistic look due to extreme color and even a magenta cast to most photos. I have even re color calibrated my monitor and that hasn't worked.
I have used the following Printer setup options:
Media: Epson Ultra Premium Photo Matte
Print Quality: quality
Mode: ICM (Automatically adjust colors based on printer's ICC profile)/OFF/Adobe RGB
I have tried all 3 of the above: ICM exaggerates the color for an unrealistic photo look; OFF makes the photo appear "pale" especially the Black and White when I used the Advanced B&W; Adobe RGB similar to ICM.
In Lightroom I set the profile to P800 Epson Ultra Premium Photo Matte.
Curious what I may be doing wrong. What settings especially with "Mode" do those printing with the Epson SC-P800 use? Trying to get suggestions to try later tonight.
As I understand you are facing color mismatch issue after printing from Epson SC-P800. Have you tried printing outside Lightroom and check the results? Please refer this discussion: not able to match screen and print colors and try the offered solutions.
Let us know if that helps.
