started getting dark prints on matte with Epson 3800
I have been printing for several years, last year got an Epson 3800 which worked great. I have a hp2400 lcd adjusted with a Spyder. Recently the matte prints have been too dark. I print from photoshop elements 8 or Qimage ultimate and use the epson pro3800 em profile or red river profile for polar matte. I use epson enhanced matte, moab entrada natural or red river polar matte.. the results are all the same recently--all dark. if I let the printer driver control the printing the print is ok. I use and shoot in adobe rgb for printing. If I use a luster paper like epson luster or Ilford pearl, with their profile the results are very good. I recently reinstalled the printer driver, no change. the epson manual is not very good for this problem. any suggestions would be appreciated. lightening the image on the screen, then printing makes little difference.
