InDesign 2.0 Color Printing Problems

Does anyone know how to fix my color problem in InDesign 2.0? I have Panther and I'm printing to an Epson 1280. All InDesign documents are WAY off in color, they seem to be very muted no matter if I use PMS colors or CMYK.

I've wrestled all day with similar problem (black printing brown, magenta looked like baby pink etc), but with InDesign 3 and and an Epson 1270. Finally solved it like this: in the InDesign print dialogue, I selected 'Colour Management' where, under 'Print Space' you can select a profile. I changed this from 'Document RGB' (which produced crap colours) to the profile of the monitor. This was the profile I had saved last week when I calibrated my new cheapo TFT display.

The printer behaves a bit strangely - the head starts whizzing backwards and forwards and the paper is slowly drawn through until it gets to the place where the image should begin - and only then it starts to squirt ink. However - the colours are almost identical to what's on the screen so I'm not complaining.

I know it's not the same software version or printer model (and we don't spell colour/colour the same way) but I hope this might give an idea of how to solve your problem too. Good luck!

Strange - just noticed the date of the original posting. No response for a year and then two within six minutes of each other (unless I've misunderstood how this works). At least there are now two alternative solutions, although the problem must have gone away by now - I was ready to jump on my printer after struggling for two hours.
