Default 7.0 getting bad color on 2200 epson


I have a 2200 epson my 7.0 photoshop is printing bad color, it has been printing good until yesterday. Can not get it to stay on do***ent setting it wants to stay on proof setup mode. It prints fine on ACDC, and Jasc and any other program but photoshop. I have tried it on 3 different brands of prints so I know it's not the 2200 epson, I feel like it's in photoshop program. Does anybody have any answers?

Thanks

A: Before installing StylusRIP Professional, it is necessary to
install EPSON Standard Windows Driver. Please refer to your printer's
Users Guide. StylusRIP Professional uses the port assigned to the
EPSON Standard Windows Driver. For example, if the destination port of
the EPSON Standard Windows Driver is LPT1, StylusRIP Professional will
also use LPT1 as its printer port.

Please follow these steps to install the PSserver for Windows:

1. Make sure Windows is running.
2. Insert the CD-ROM.
3. The Choose Setup Language dialog box appears automatically.

Note: If the dialog box does not appear, double-click Setup.exe in the
Setup folder on the CD-ROM.

4. Select English and click OK.
5. Continue by following the instructions that appear on your screen.
6. When the Install Shield wizard appears, select the printer attached
and click the Next button.
7. Continue installation by following the instructions that appear on
your screen.
8. When the installation of StylusRIP Professional is finished, the
following dialog appears.

Click the Finish button.

9. The Add Printer wizard starts and the installation of PS Driver
begins. Click the Next button and continue the installation.
10. Check Local printer in Local or Network Printer. Do not check
Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer. Then, click
the Next button.
11. Select a printer port. Check Use the following port, and select
StylusRIP Professional from the port list then click the Next button.

12. Select a printer model. Click the Have Disk button and specify the
location of the INF file. The Windows 2000/XP INF file is saved in the
following location on the CD-ROM:

english\win2000-xp\ps_setup

When you finish selecting, click the OK button.

13. Model names of printers appear. Select the attached printer then
click the Next button.

14. Continue the installation by following the instructions that
appear on your screen.

15. If you are sharing the printer on a network, check Share as: and
enter the network printer name. If you are not sharing the printer,
check Do not share this printer. Then click the Next button.

16. If you are sharing the printer, enter Location and Comment. If you
are not sharing the printer, this dialog box does not appear. When you
finish entering, click the Next button.

17. In Print Test Page, select No, and then click the Next button.

18. When Completing, the Add Printer Wizard appears, click the Finish
button.

Note: After the Finish button is clicked, the following dialog box
appears in Windows 2000/XP. Click Yes.

19. The installation is now complete. Click the Finish button and
restart your computer. You can use StylusRIP Professional after you
restart your computer.

Q: How can I use the EPSON StylusRIP Professional as a print server on
a network?

A: The most efficient way to use the EPSON StylusRIP Professional as a
print server is shown in figure 1.

The RIP should be installed in a Server Host (S1) and a PS Printer
driver and PPD should be installed in each Client Host (C1, C2).
Server Host (S1) connected to the printer (P1) by USB or FireWire
cable.

Note: In a general network environment, the printer is shared by
multiple Macintosh computers over the network.
Epson recommends connecting the printer and print server, by USB or
FireWire cable.
Epson does not recommend to output via AppleTalk connection using an
optional multi-protocol Ethernet I/F card. Due to the amount of
traffic generated you may encounter slow throughput.
If a router is used on the network and the job sent from the Client
Host does not print to the printer, remove the router from the network
and temporarily install an Ethernet Hub. This will avoid any firewall
communication problems that may be caused by the router. Then
reinstall the PS Printer driver and PPD to each Client Host. After
setup is complete, you can return the router connection back to its
network configuration.
In a home or small business network using multiple PC and Macintosh
systems, you can also connect a USB + FireWire Hub device to use the
Epson StylusRIP PRO as a print server on a network.

with font management utilities?

A: Epson StylusRIP is compatible with the most common font management
utilities. However, users should upgrade their font management
utilities to the latest version and check with their software vendor
for compatibility issues.

Find Font errors can be caused by corrupted fonts, duplicate fonts,
duplicate font sets open at the same time, etc. Check the System Font
Folder to be sure that both the screen and printer font are present
and available, reinstall the font, bypass your font management utility
to eliminate the possibility of an incompatibility. Finally, if the
error continues, convert text to outlines as a temporary solution.

StylusRIP taking so long to rip my do***ent?

rotated or modified in your page layout application. All image
modifications should be done prior to placing the image. When placed
images are modified in a page layout application, the image is
processed twice, once to rasterize and once to calculate the new
location for each dot.

IS PS OR EPSON CONTROLING YOUR COLOR PROFILES. I MAY BE WRONG BUT I HAVE THE PS COLOR SETTINGS TURNED OFF SO THEY DO NOT CONFLICT WITH THE EPSON PROFILES. AS I SAID I AM GREEN SO COULD BE WRONG, BUT ITS WORTH A TRY
