Troubleshooting and Maintenance
Optimizing Print Quality
Your printer provides you with a number of ways to print your
documents to achieve the highest possible quality. The two
features discussed here are EPSON’s Resolution Improvement
Technology (RITech) and Enhanced MicroGray (Enh. MG).
Resolution Improvement Technology
Resolution Improvement Technology (RITech) is EPSON’s
original printer technology that improves the appearance of
printed lines, text and graphics.
The factory default setting for RITech is On. RITech produces the
best quality text and graphics for nearly all purposes. However,
if you are printing gray shading or screen patterns, change the
setting to Off.
To change the RITech setting, follow these steps:
Using the printer driver
Select or clear the RITech check box on the Panel menu in the
printer driver to turn RITech on or off.
Using the SelecType
Follow the instructions in the section on using SelecType. This
setting is made in the Config Menu (see “Config Menu” on page
Adjusting print density
Changing the print density affects all text and graphics; avoid
making unnecessary changes. When making changes, check the
new settings by printing several pages with various kinds of text
If your printouts are too light or too dark, adjust the print density
with the printer driver or by using SelecType.
