Re: Nozzle check trouble, first cart of Generations ink

Did you run a cleaning cartridge after removing the OEM inks and installing
the Generations Ink?

I had the same problem when I purchased a reconditioned 3000 and assumed
that there wasn't ink in the printer. Boy was I wrong. Had the same problem
just as you described it.

Running cleaning fluid through the printer and possibly letting it sit like
that overnight should take care of the problem. That's what I did. Next
morning reloaded the Generation inks and all nozzles were printing fine.
