Lightroom softproof, print preview, actual prints aren't even close

Mar 26, 2017
I'm using an Epson Stylus Pro 4800 that I just had serviced and should be like new.
If the prints looked like my softproof in lightroom the whole world would be fine.
But when I hit print, the printer's print preview is waaay off. and the actual print is even worse.
I'm using the recommended profile for the paper I'm using's specifications for this printer.
I don't know where to turn. Tried settings in lightroom and no color mgmt in printer. Same result.
The printers print preview isn't even close to the soft proof.
See attachment for my settings. Using kodak professional inkjet paper which specifies "premium glossy photo paper" profile for this printer.
Thank You
P.S. my display is calibrated weekly
