Hi,

I have an Epson 4000 conversion and have set up Acrorip 9 to print KCMY-WWWW and arranged my inks accordingly. Using Epson 4800 as the printer.

It prints everything great except the one Issue I'm having is no matter what I do the rip wont print using the black ink, instead its printing from the first W line, which is normally Photo Black. I feel like its the printer deciding this.

If I print a test page or a photo from the same machine directly using the print driver it prints using the black line no problem but whenever its ripped it uses the PK line.

I have done a lot of testing on this, checking the rip files and if I print a white copy using only the first white ink line I can see in the file that its telling the printer to use a different channel than if I print a pure CMYK black TIF.

Anyone seen this before and have a solution other than changing one of my white lines to black? Is there s printer setting I'm missing?

Thanks

Update, I changed my W1 to Black and so am running 3 white instead of 4. Having done some more research It seems the 4000 is a 7 colour print system, it prints either MK or PK not both, it just lets you load both of them at the same time to save the hassle of switching.

Hello,

I have an Neoflex (Epson 4880) and I Have a little similar problem. My setup is Dual CMYK, but for some reason, the printer is printing the second magenta channel off the bed and also when I print a Bi-directional alignment test, the second magenta channel is missing. Also when doing a Bi-directional alignment test, there is a cyan box printed over the yellow boxes. It seems like a setup problem.

Here are som pics and a video of my problem.

Did you solve your problem?

Maybe you came up with a solution that could fit in my problem.

Sorry for my poor english. I am from Venezuela.
