Hi Wells et al,
When you helped me with my dry?/drained? magenta cart (bought in 2015?) for the 1400, I was not near my printer so did not know if it was dry or drained. (I noticed that when I was trying to print almost black and white (RGB) files they were coming out in pink/brown tones) Now, putting it up to the sun, the magenta cart looks like it may have almost drained, since there is a little wet ink left in there. Does that mean I do not need to run piezo flush thru all new carts in the printer (since there would be no dry stuff gunking up the lines)? Should I use one of the new carts I just bought and fill that with magenta (since the drained cart might be defective?), or just try filling the one that has almost drained. I’ve hardly printed with that printer (maybe 15 sheets of 8.5x11 paper) but I’m used to a 9800 with 220ml carts so am not sure how fast the ink goes in the 1400 small carts.
Also, when taking partially filled carts out of the 1400, I have the printer on, which is what I do with my Epson 9800 with Epson K3 inks, so the ink supply counter stays correct. Is that how it works with the 1400 too?
I recently bought the 2 sets of empty 1400 carts, and Piezoflush (which I can still use to put my printer in hibernation I suppose), and a couple of other things, including a chip resetter if necessary when I refill a cart. (maybe take a look at my order)
What should be my next step?
Thanks so much,
