This is a "Boy, is my face red" report but it also may save others some trouble. I had reported that my 1160 wouldn't print SuperB and that the paper jammed (with ALL the little red lights on the front a-glow). Well it did it again today with ordinary typing paper after making coffee-grinder noises that just turned my heart over. And when the Epson software warning appeared suggesting I clear the inside of the machine and abort I smugly hit Enter and aborted and repeated and the machine clunked and stopped again. I finally paid attention and really listened and realized there WAS SOMETHING going on inside. So I tipped up the cover when I tried to reprint and discovered that. . . . Now that the weather has changed (in Tucson) and we've left air-conditioning for the incredibly wonderful autumn natural air the CIS bundle of tubes have a different stiffness and, like the shoelace on my sneakers, are drooping just enough to touch the leading edge of the cartridges as they whip off to the left, upsetting the delicate balance of the innards and triggering an alarm. Of course it only required resetting the fuzzy patch a smidgen to tighten up the droop. . . but that required me to think rather than assume I knew what was happening. Sigh. . . life shouldn't be that complicated. A. . . . see "The Bath" and "A Long Walk" at . . . www.AGdigitalprints.com - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
