Re: Canon iX6820 not printing with all black cartidges

Thank you for the helpful information!

You asked earlier if the fine nozzles are a replacement for lighter application of cyan & magenta (instead of using photo cyan and photo magenta ink) - yes, this is correct.

Re: Screen Print Film issues

Hello, I just answered by email and requested a photo of a print that shows the problem. Now I see that you already posted a photo :D . The photo is a bit small so I can only guess. I have the following possible explanations: 1. there is a problem with ink supply - larger black areas are not fully c...

Re: Layout-Editor

Hallo stephanaust, vielen Dank für die Anfrage, der Layout-Editor ist in dieser Form nur bei PrintFab für Windows vorhanden. Insofern scheint hier auf der Webseite ein Fehler unterlaufen zu sein, ich leite das weiter, dass es korrigiert wird. Ein ähnlicher Layout-Editor ist aber für eine spätere Pri...

Re: Epson SC P900 Dark Colors Are Too Dark

Hello, the difference is subtle and I cannot guarantee that it is worth the effort. Here is the explanation why I recommend 300: The PrintFab printer driver "Epson SureColor SC-P900" internally works in RGB mode. To print maximum deep black the driver must send RGB=0,0,0 to the printer, which PrintF...

Re: Canon iX6820 not printing with all black cartidges

Thank you for the photo. Two cyan and two magenta fields are empty, these are the "fine cyan" and "fine magenta" nozzles, they might be blocked because the pigment in the UV ink is too large for the fine nozzles. You can try to disable Cyan and Magenta of the all black ink set: multiblack-disable-cy...

Re: Canon iX6820 not printing with all black cartidges

Hello, thank you for posting the photos. You should first check if the print head is fully functional by printing a "nozzle test". This can be done from the PrintFab application, dialog "Toolbox" -> button "Nozzle Check". The nozzle test page should look similar to this one examinenozzlecheck.jpg Th...

Re: Epson SC P900 Dark Colors Are Too Dark

Hello Robert, thank you for your feedback. - Ink limit When using the TurboPrint driver "Epson SureColor SC-P900", you should always choose the ink limit 300. This will allow a deeper black. - Print quality / resolution When importing a paper manufacturer's ICC profile, it is not important which res...

Thank you for your feedback. We have to work economically in order to be able to further develop the PrintFab software. We have decided against a subscription model, but unfortunately we cannot offer software updates free of charge. The PrintFab license must be updated only if you want to use a new ...

Re: Ink levels showing at 100%-Part 2

We think it has to do with your printer or the cartridges it has installed. The printer thinks the cartridges are still full. Some older printers can only detect an ink level change when levels are e.g. below 25%, so they initially always report 100%, then suddenly ink levels fall to 25%.

This is essential when importing an ICC profile that is provided by a paper manufacturer. A setting diffe...

Re: Print out is nit vibrant

Hello, the setting "Gamut" on tab "Color" of the PrintFab driver settings controls the vibrance of the print. I am not sure if this is what you need. Maybe you can send some additional information: - your printer model - the application you are printing from (e.g. Photoshop) - the type of photos or ...
