Issue

The Print Settings button does not respond when you choose Printer Manages Color in Adobe Photoshop's Print dialog box. 

Solution 1: Choose Printer Manages Color,  return to Photoshop Manages Color, and then choose Print Settings.

Solution 2: Update your Epson printer driver and install the Common Updater (Mac OS).

  1. Quit Photoshop.
  2. Download and install the most current driver for your printer and your operating system from Epson's website.
  3. Download and install the Common Updater 7.0. 

    Note:
    There is a Common Updater for Mac OX 10.6 and 10.5. 

  4. Restart Photoshop and print an image.

Solution 3: Update your Epson printer driver (Windows)

  1. Quit Photoshop.
  2. Download and install the most current driver for your printer and your operating system from Epson's website.

    Note: Make sure that you choose the correct version of the driver for your version of Windows. There are different drivers for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.

Solution 4: Set another printer as the default printer (Windows).

  1. Exit Photoshop.
  2. If your printer is the Windows default printer, set a different printer as the default. For details on setting a printer as the default, search for “change your default printer” in Microsoft Windows Help.
  3. Open Photoshop, open an image, and choose File > Print.
  4. Select Photoshop Manages Color, click Print Settings, and click Done or OK.
  5. Exit Photoshop.
  6. Set your previous printer as the default in Windows.
  7. Open an image, and choose File > Print. 

Solution 5: Remove the printer and then reinstall the most recent driver (Mac OS).

  1. Remove the Epson printer from the Print & Fax System Preference.
  2. Drag the /Library/Printers/EPSON folder into the trash, and empty the trash.

Note: This folder is the System Library folder, not the Library folder under your user name. 

  1. Reinstall the most recent printer driver.
  2. Connect and turn on the printer, which causes it to be added to Print & Fax.
  3. Install the Common Updater.

Additional information

This issue can occur when you use an older printer driver, or when files have been printed with an older printer driver.

Sometimes the printer driver's preferences can become damaged. Solution 5 removes the driver, which also removes the driver's preferences.
