Critical Printing Problem Help

Hi Jerry,

Yeah, it is only when printed. Shows up on the screen correctly. Unfortunately, the Epson Driver has never fixed the Color status access for OSX and I have to switch back to another Mac using an older driver, but it does appear I've got plenty of all the colors right now. But it shows all the colors at the same level, so I'm not too confident in what I'm seeing. This would certainly make more sense than the other alternatives I'm chasing. Guess maybe I just need to spend the $40 for a new color cartridge. Or maybe I can just get them to replace it as being defective. (smile)

Thanks, Joe Wilkins

A portion of the drawing had a gray fill. On printing this revised drawing that gray fill printed in the green color I've been getting; not as the gray shown on the screen. Some way this set the color for all future printings. Do you have any idea where that would be? It must be a System thing of some sort. I think I've found the culprit; now to find a fix.

Suddenly, with no apparent changes to any of them, or the application in which they have been created, the light gray fills are printing as a light green. Is it possible that a virus has caused this anomaly? Since my eyesight is so poor, I didn't even realize this had happened at first. I've discarded every other possible resolution of the problem. This transpired pretty much over night. Yesterday everything was OK. Today not so. I've restarted, but have not reinstalled anything yet.
