| p.1 #1 · Epson 3000 "Changing Black Ink" why, and how do I prevent it? |
Often when I print on my Epson R3000 it wastes time and ink "Changing Black Ink" but I can't figure out why.
I only print on matte paper - I have several kinds of different weights and sizes and qualities, but only matte. Just matte.
Nothing but matte.
I have never, ever specified a glossy paper or glossy print or photo-black ink in the Preferences with my R3000. I don't own any glossy paper.
But sometimes - maybe 25% or 30% of the time when I go to print I hear it going through the whole "changing ink" routine and under Preferences I see that the paper is set to glossy and it's trying to change to photo black ink. Why does it do this? Sometimes it does this RIGHT AFTER I did a (matte, of course) print and I'm merely doing a second print so I didn't think I had to set the preferences again.
How do I tell the printer that I will never, ever, EVER make a glossy print so it should forget all about "photo black" ink and under no circumstances default to a glossy paper or photo black ink? If I forget to set the paper or ink it should always, 100% of the time, no exceptions, default to matte. Is there a configuration file or (Windows 7) registry setting I can set to delete any concept or default of glossy or photo black ink?
The manual says "To conserve ink, you can select the type of ink that is available by default. First decide which type of media you usually print on. Check the type of ink that works with that media. Then, if necessary, switch to that ink type." But I don't see where to set it as a default. (To me "default"=the setting it will assume if I don't tell it otherwise. What does Epson mean by default?)
Thanks in advance for clarifying this.
