Re: New Epson r3000 prints darker than old Epson 4000

Well, I finally got the color munki running.  Computer guy came and even he had to give up.  He suggested writing the company...which I did and they were able to suggest that I needed to make sure that McAfee was totally out of my computer (I had used it and changed some months ago when it did not protect me from a virus).  They gave me a tool to get it totally removed.  They they also sent some sort of Service File....I loaded that and not sure if it did anything, but the color munki now runs!! Finally!

So, I calibrated the monitors.  Well, I didn't see a lot of change in my main monitor. Some change to the darker, but that was about it.  My second monitor is a cheap one and it needed quite a bit of calibrating.  So, then I print.  It is still dark.  I had a long talk to Joe and he helped me get some settings changed.  But, it still prints dark.  I am pretty much done in by this.  I think it will be easier to use an Adjustment layer to lighten and be done with it.  I have been experimenting with black and white and the printer impresses me.  I am happy with that (although some adjustment was also needed)  So, I will just have to get used to doing one extra step before I print.

It is a good printer with some quirks!

Thanks for everyone's help!!
