I recently refilled my 3880 carts using the carbon inks and found that the resulting prints were not right. They had a bronzed look in the mid tones. I printed out a calibration chart in QTR and I discovered that I had switched the VM and the LVM carts in the printer. I hadn’t realized that the printer would allow this mainly because each cart has a chip identifying it to the printer.
In any case I discovered the mistake today and ran five cleanings. I printed out another calabration chart which shows slightly different tonalities in the Magentas from the first chart which I took to meanthe inks are clearing. But when I attempted a print it was clear they weren’t back to normal. Any thoughts?
