Hi o5iris---Thank You for replying--Appreciated. So far then, I have got everything correct.

Though it looks like if I want to see Good Saturated Colours I must use GLOSS paper instead of Lustre or Satin papers.

I shall go and order some Gloss A4 paper to try out, and if that satisfies me I shall buy some Gloss A3. In the meantime I shall print what I call non-saturated images on my Lustre along with my B&W. I do prefer Lustre to Gloss for B&W.

Again, just like you, every so often I get my 3000 doing a darn 2 minute clean. Only had it a week and I already topped up the cartridges. Most infuriating!!

I had 2 of those cycles up to now (6 days, 5 of those printing around 18 A4 prints total). Today the printer didn't do it.

I will let you know how I get on with the Gloss paper.
Hope you get your 3000 sorted out soon.

I forgot to mention - I didn't do any fancy calibration to my monitor but I did download a supposedly nice ICC profile for it (HP LP2275w) and I have to say that I'm very happy with my monitor-printer combo.
Are you sure your monitor is not oversaturating colors?...

Good luck with the glossy paper!
