Hi! I hope you can help with the following problem.

I recently upgraded to Windows XP from ME last month.

This week I attempted to print some digital photos on my Epson Stylus 880 printer for the first time since the upgrade and found that the colors are totally messed up.

All of the pics print with a definite GREEN tone to them. RED comes out bright YELLOW. I found out this happens when printing anything in any program; not just pictures.

I uninstalled the printer and the print drivers. And then re-installed using the XP drivers from Epson's website.

I have messed around with choosing different color settings with no effect.

The only other program I have installed after the XP upgrade is Adobe Photoshop 7.

This one has me stumped. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Two things to check on (1) clean the printer heads
(2) Ink levels are low

WOW ... thanks for your help with this! The cartridge was relatively new so I cleaned the print heads a couple of times and everything is back to normal. (I was sure this had something to do with my XP upgrade since it was coincidental to that.)

Thanks again!
