What the heck is is? No. The print heads are empty, that is dry, when it leaves the factory. Even the Color 3000 ink delivery system is empty. That is why it takes as long as ten minutes to prime a brand new Color 3000. >Would just flushing out with H2O be a bad solution for a 2 month shut down? >For sure the ink will clog after this much time! My guess is that the water will damage the piezo elements. I would suggest that the printer be stored as outlined in the user manual. Temperature at 22 degrees celcius, 5% to 85% Relative Humidity (without condensation). Also install new ink cartridges. Eddie Forget world peace.
