Right in the middle of a long printout, the black text tailed off to nothing. I emailed Epson from their web page, after wasting another 5 minutes with "Epson ER". They advised me to run the nozzle check from the Windows driver, which I can't do easily, since I run GIMP-print drivers on a linux box. I responded that I had already run the printer self-test and observed that 5 colors are stil there, but the black is missing. I also noted that this is the original (made in China) ink cartridge that came in the box. I suggested that it probably ran out of ink, with no low ink warning whatever. I am waiting for a reply. Can anyone advise: Is this the right way to deal with Epson? Is the print-head drying out and being irreparably harmed while the negotiation with Epson drags on? Should I do something about the head, or just follow Epson procedure and expect them to deal with the fallout, if any? Is the fact that the ink cartridges what came with the printer were marked: "Made in China" vs. cartridges on the shelf at Fry's marked "Made in Japan" significant? Thanks in advance for any advice.
