Re: epson 2400 smudging

Is it possible the thickness of the paper is causing the problem? Is there an adjustment lever on this printer that might be set incorrectly for a different thickness of paper? I'm not familiar with the 2400 but IIRC some older Epsons had a sort of a normal/full- tilt ink lever and I think some adjusted for thickness.

Are you using a backing sheet when printing? I've had trouble with a 2200 without such a sheet.

I am getting smudging when I print on fine art paper using my Epson 2400. I have calibrated my moniter and am using the appropriate profile for the paper I am trying to print on. I am loading the paper in the front. I am using color inks. This happens no matter what kind of paper I use even with Epson paper.

I realize that this isn't directly related to alternative processes but there is so much experience here that I thought that I would pose the question. I am very frustrated and epson isn't much help.

Thank you, Mary Pat
