Epson 9800 serious light black problem
i've bought recently the epson 9800 with a new printhead.
i've tested with some graphics, some colors, logos etc. And it works perfectly, since i want to print a photo or picture.
I'm using 3rd party inks (i bought with that inks included), and 3rd party cartridges.
When i print photos, the light gray is printing much more dark than its have to be, so i decided to print a simple HSL chart to see where's the problem. And voila, there's a terrible problem with light grays tones. I need to know if is a wrong ink refill problem (i never need to refill, but the previous owner could make a mistake), or its a color management problem. Im attaching the original image, and scanned 2 printed tests:
the darker with a luster 260grs photo roll, Premium Luster setting and down a little the density.
and second with hi-def bond 120grs roll, singleweight matte setting and down a little the density.
I have to take down the density because: monitor is not calibrated and it's the simplest solution.
Thanks in advance!
