I had a similar problem as you are experiencing. I solved my air leaks with super-glue and a generous amount of hot glue also. You can tell if your ink keeps retreating back to individual bottles you still have a leak. Some inks will more more than others, but it seems normal. As for the color. I had two bottles from MIS that were mis-labeled. I would print a purge 6 tif on heavy weight matte paper using 1440 Heavy Weight matte as the media, high speed off, etc.. Mail me that print and I will compare it against one I have with both OEM ink and MIS inks. I can tell you if your ink color is off enough to be your problem. It took me 7 weeks to fix my issues. Will see if we can fix yours in a couple of days. alan >> I keep having trouble with the 1280/ MIS CFS system : >> After the initial installation there were numerous air leaks which I >> fixed by putting more and more hot glue around the fittings on top of >> the cartridge.
