Question Epson Stylus Photo 1390 does not print light colors

Hi all

I have bought me a DTG printer, the epson stylus photo 1390. It is a A3+ printer. It uses a ciss system. Took me some time to find out the position of the platform. You can lift up and down the platform. Now i have it in position.

Tried to print some colorbars C M Y K and they look not 100% but some light (10-20%). When i made colorbars with values of 75% - 50% and 25% they almost do not appear.

I printed a tiger (has many orange - red colors in it) and these colors where mostly yellow, so the addition of the Magenta (55% etc.) was not to be seen.

Anybody with the same experience as i had?

Many thanks in advance,
Cees

I think that you need to contact the supplier and see if they have a profile for you. Do you know if the ink is DuPont or some unheard of brand? Every ink is different and can contribute too but most likely you may need someone to make you a profile if your supplier doesn't have one. Where did you buy the printer from?

Hi, thanks for your answer. The ink was the problem. I have bought me a new set of ink (dupont quality) and it works fine.
