I have the option to use printer colour management. Adobe RGB. Or no colour management.
Garry that might be your problem you do not use Adobe RGB as a print profile, that is a colour space profile not a print profile, they are not the same.
The computer has many profiles, each with its own job, colour space profiles, monitor profiles, printing profiles and a good few others all there to do one job, but in conjunction with all the others, just like a team. Give the wrong job to the wrong profile and you have problems.
For printing there will have been print profiles installed when you installed the print driver, they can be self descripted such as epson gloss, epson matt, HP or Canon will have there own descriptions, but they will be equally descriptive. I agree it's best to turn off colour management particularly using custom profiles.
If you have a printer with three black inks for b/w then you use printer manages prints when printing b/w.
Sad to say it isn't just a question of pressing the print button as the manufacturers make us believe.
It can be when everything is set up properly.
