After an overnight wait, I got a clear nozzle-check. Ran two 8x10" prints on Epson photo paper, both are pretty poor. It seems that one or more of the inks are sort of varying in intensity along the length of the print. >> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ First off the cleaning cycles are not all that great for getting the air out of your prinheads! Please look for my posts about the 2 biggest problem all sponge printers have! You need to start printing color block and radom text this works way better than the clean cycles. And you will save a lot of ink Each clean cycle will drink from 1/2 to up to 3/4 of a CC of ink so you can drink a lot of ink real fast! You need to get to the point where you can weigh the refill you are kidding yourself by measureing the volume this does not work at least for me. Soooooo use the color blocks like 2 pages at a time then run a nozzle check if it is air then you will see the gap and skip go way! Radom text also help to tease out the air TomCat - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for instructions.
