No problem. Are you able to connect your printer to the previous computer now, just to check the colours again?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I crashed it for good trying to put Windows 10 on it. I haven't got it any more.

I just tried aligning the print heads, as in the instruction book, but it is no better.
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
OK.Did you install the printer drivers manually, or the computer automatically installed the drivers once you connected the printer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The computer did it,but I had help over the internet from the firm that sold me the computer. I thuoght it was working, and the writing is, but not the colour. I'll have to do the church notices without a picture!

No thank you. I decide my problem was because I had been using substitute inks instead of Epson ones, but Epson inks would cost me £40.00 and I can get a new home printer (HP like the computer) for £50.00, so it is better to buy that.

Thank you for your help and patience.

You're welcome! If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know. Regards,IT Miro
