After installing a new ink cartridge, the colors seems to have shifted (generally too light). The nozzle check was fine. The printer is used at irregular intervals, but I see no obvious evidence of clogging other than the sudden color shift.
So I am wondering whether the color shift is due to a variation with the ink cartridge (which will require creating a new profile) or if I should perform some other maintenance (if so, please suggest)?

One other possibility is if you've started using a different type of paper, or if you've started a new pack of paper; Epson did reformulate some of the recommended 1280 papers to try and solve the colour shift problems.
A somewhat similar problem was mentioned on this thread.

I am the person who posted the thread that AlanC spoke about in his thread to you.
I have just posted my reply from Epson on what to try for my problem with my Epson printer. It may be helpful to you.
Have a great day!

Thank you. That thread is helpful.
I have seen threads elsewhere (not on these forums that I am aware of) that recommend placing a few drops of windex (or equivalent) in the ink lines. Haven't tried this myself and since no one else has suggested this approach, perhaps it is not a good idea
