Re: designjet 90 and printer toolkit routines

Hello tw8, unfortunately the maintenance tasks are not supprted directly by PrintFab's Toolbox - as you mentioned, the buttons are greyed out for the Designjet 90 printer. However, it should be possible to initiate all maintenance tasks directly from the printer control panel by holding the power bu...

Re: Printfab causing banding on photos

Hello, print quality with PrintFab and the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 printer was very good during our driver development tests. I did not see any banding in my test prints. There are several possible explanations for the problems: 1) most likely, the pigment ink that you are using is difficult to handle...

Re: screen film halftoning solids

Hello, black should be solid if - the image that you're printing contains only black (RGB=0,0,0) and white (RGB=255,255,255) - contrast is set to at least 100% in the PrintFab driver settings, tab "Main" - no color management settings have been made in the application's print dialog If you are print...

Re: White borders in spite of "Borderless"

I'm sorry that you still encounter problems. This sounds like a printer driver specific problem that only affects PrintFab version 2.94 and will be fixed in the next release. Can you please try the prerelease of the upcoming version PrintFab 2.95: https://www.zedonet.com/ftp/beta/printfab-2.95beta.dmg

Re: Test Ink Limits ET-7750 - Rear Feed

Hello, when printing the ink limit test, always the default feed is used. We plan to add a selection in a future PrintFab version. However, when printing the actual color profile, you can select the paper input in the dialog. I recommend to keep the default setting (250) and to print the color profi...

Re: White borders in spite of "Borderless"

Thank you, I just answered by email: thank you for sending the log file and please excuse the delay. The log file shows that "A3" is internally selected instead of "A3 borderless". I tried to reproduce the problem on two Mac computers (macOS 10.14 and 10.15) with Photoshop and also with the macOS "P...

Re: Spooler message: Printing page 1, 99% complete...

Hello, to "troubleshoot" this, you should first try to get your printer going with local USB connection. If this works, you can switch to Windows network connection. A possible explanation for the problem is that you chose the wrong driver, e.g. "Canon BJC4200" instead of "Canon PIXMA iP4200". You c...

Re: How to disable channel in Epson 7900?

The statement in the manual that you cited is in the section "Special settings for screen printing" and it is correct, but it only applies to screen printing (printing black&white films).

Please let me know if questions remain.

Re: Problems Printing Print Color Chart

The nozzle check indicates that the black ink is not printed (the characters "C,M,Y" are printed with a mix of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow), so either the ink cartridge or the print head has a problem.
