    Hi all,
    My MS2 recognises my Epson r800 printer but only prints very faded and therefore useless pictures. Can anyone help me with this ?
    Many thanks,
    Ged

    This trouble is well known. It is a combination of your paper, and telling the printer what paper you have loaded. Your printer is likely okay, and so is your Surface computer

    Check this article, and this one.

    Thanks for replying.
    I may be missing something obvious but my surface isn't giving me any options as to paper type, print quality etc.
    When I print from my vista powered laptop it gives me all sorts of options.
    Am I looking in the wrong place on my surface ?
