Epson P800, tweaking gamma or curves to make the image brighter?

Hello guys!

I've got an issue printing in Epson SC P800. Some images look really good at monitor, but they are going to be darker on paper. The shadows are too dark, the whites are too grey.

So, I found there is tree ways to fix it:

1) set brightness in printer settings to +3

2) set gamma in printer settings from 1.8 to 2.2

3) manually tweak curves of the image, raising shadows up a bit.

The problem is: when I change the gamma, and then pick color profile of the paper (ICC), the gamma resets to default. The same is going with brightness in printer settings.

So, what do you usually tweak to print the image "a bit brighter"? Thank you for advices.
