Epson Printer Test Page (CMYK)

epson 6 color printer test print page pdfThere are several different ways to test Epson brand printer for color printing. Including the most obvious one – requesting a printer to do a self-diagnostic test print.
Most Epson printers have a built-in function to print a test page directly from the printer itself. Here’s how you can do it:

Turn on the Printer: Ensure that the printer is powered on and has paper loaded in the tray.
Locate the Printer’s Control Panel: Find the buttons on the control panel. The exact buttons may vary by model.
If you cannot find the right menu option that hints to test page printing, here is what you can try:

⚐ For many models, pressing and holding the “Cancel” or “Stop” button for a few seconds will print a test page.
Some models might require you to press the “Maintenance” button (usually represented by a wrench or tools icon).
Alternatively, pressing and holding the “Power” and “Resume” or “Feed” button simultaneously may also work.

For testing CMYK color printing, download the PDF test page. Follow the specific instructions for your printer model to set it to CMYK mode. Use our PDF test pages to evaluate the print quality.

Epson Printer Test Page can support up to six different ink cartridges

This PDF page is designed to test up to six ink cartridges (C, M, Y, Bk, Lc, Lm), which is the standard setup for Epson 6-color ink tank printers. It is intended to demonstrate optimal print quality results.

Please note that we also offer a variety of test pages, both brand-specific and more generic, available for download.

Warning: Do not print the preview JPG image itself, as it is highly compressed and it will not meet the required performance criteria for a proper color test page. The tools and guides we offer on this website are entirely free of charge, so please use the appropriate download button to get the necessary testing media for conducting the test.

How to use this test

This test page is intended to be used with Epson color printer. The 6 ink tank printer has extended CMYK color range, which is why we used more lighter patterns and mid-tones to target the full spectrum of colors available.

You can use this test in addition to the standard test page that the printer already provides programmatically. The standard Epson page has nozzle test patterns, some key information like serial number, firmware version and some other model-specific technical data.
Meanwhile, this test page highlights color performance challenges and helps pinpoint any underlying issues.

The usual approach should constitute something like this:

Consult the Manual: Review the printer manual for specific instructions and ensure you have compatible software and drivers.

Check Printer Condition: Ensure the printer is in good condition with no clogged nozzles or other issues.

Use Recommended Paper: Use the specified paper type for accurate test results.

Adjust Printer Settings: Set the printer to the recommended paper size, orientation, resolution, and color settings.

Print the Test Page: Load the test page and print at 100% scale without any scaling options enabled.


How to Evaluate This Test

Compare the printed test page to the original template on our website.

This test includes black, white, and CMYK sample blocks for Epson printer. Simply look for differences between the two images.
