The Agony & Ecstasy

Is there anything more wonderful than watching your print slither its way onto the printing tray (don’t answer that!)

I never tire of watching the picture appear from the deep dark depths of my printer……. except when it comes out completely magenta !

How the ecstasy can turn into hours of agony when you try and rectify the problem and you can’t find the solution.

I Turned everything off and on (yes I watch the IT crowd), Unistalled/installed the drivers, changed the leads, changed the ink cartridges, stood on one leg with my fingers crossed, I tried everything but to no avail…. still distinctly magenta. Hmmmmmm

That was yesterday and after a sleepless night I had yet another go this morning… my world still had a rosy glow… but not in a good way.

I came to the conclusion that I would have to buy another printer but in the meantime I ordered some more of my lovely Permajet paper and mentioned my predicament to the chap on the other end of the line. Quick as a flash I was put through to a lovely fella who gave me some sound advice and he said that I should follow the link he gave me because the driver download I was using (series 2) was apparently an Apple Generic Driver which overrode the Epson driver I needed . So I took him at his word, downloaded the new driver and hey presto my world is the right colour again……. very green, but that’s JUST the way I want it.

So now I sit here (writing this blog) listening to the printer happily whir away printing my pictures to exactly the right colours that I wanted them to be.

Oh Joy
