    Hi
    I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm breaking any rule. I have a problem with my old Epson P50 with CISS system. As mentioned in the subject, the printer prints red instead of black but in the shadows. I did a nozzle check and it's ok but printer head alignment it's looks weird. I will put two pictures:

    I'm using original dye Epson ink. Any thoughts on this matter? Thank you

    Please post the nozzle check here, could it be that one color is missing completely - the black ?
    The printhead alignment patterns won't help in this case. How are you getting original Epson dye inks for your CISS ?

    I think @Ink stained Fingers is spot on with the missing photo black. Here is a link by @Łukasz . You can select English at the upper left corner, then a link to a translated text appears below the photo. The image of the boy is very similar to the one in the original post and also produced by an Epson printer failing to print black.

    The link is from this post in this thread about a similar problem.

    Cleaning head helped me before. I have had this situation a couple of times because it happend that i had not used the printer for weeks. But now, I tried a lot of cleaning cycles and no succes. Also, it intrigues me how this red colour appears in shadows mostly
    I forgot to tell you that on plain paper the red is not that obvious.
