Re: Epson P900 - New Print Quality Settings (P700 too)

Yes I would re-install the driver from Epson website for whichever OS you're on.

Just to be certain: your monitor & printer profiles are all in your User folder - Library>ColorSync>Profiles?

Yes, that's where I had to move them after finding them in the Library > printers files.

Then try this: remove any printer that references the P900 from your list of printers in System Prefs>Printers & Scanners. Then add a new printer & wait a while till the list populates. Then up the top, click on the globe symbol (not sure if that's a Big Sur thing or not) but select Internet Printing Protocol - IPP & add your P900's address (eg 192.xxx.xx.xx). Then under that, in Use, select Select Software... Then select the P900 entry. Then Add. At the end of the process your P900 will have an "(IP)" showing after your printer's name at the top of the Printers & Scanners box.

It seems you can't re-install the driver without the printer.  I tried and it wants to start the wireless setup and won't finish without it.  I will just delete the printer and driver and wait for the replacement before I do anything.

I find that my connection is very stable & fast with it done this way. I'm on a wireless connection. Prints just as fast as on a wired connection. No problem. You probably already know this but thought would share that with you in case you didn't.

Yes, I was really amazed about the wireless connection on the P900.  A gazillion times faster than the wired connection on my 3880.

My X-rite profile works fine, no difference to ones done under Catalina.

Great news!

Your settings page will probably come good after you connect the physical printer. Until then I probably wouldn't worry about it. And in the meantime, if you have the ink, you can use your 3880. You're lucky to have that one at least. I only had my one dysfunctional P906, that's why I was desperate to replace it asap.

Good luck with it. Hope you get the new one sooner than later!
