I checked the FAQs and searched the forum but could not find any relevant information…
I have an Artisan 810 that I am attempting to flush the lines and clean the print heads using PiezoFlush. I purchased 6 EasyFill keys, 6 Empty My Capsules and a 220ml bottle of PiezoFlush solution. After filling the Capsules, pulling the vent tabs and installing them in my 810, I ran about 8 head cleanings and 2 dozen nozzle checks.
The nozzle checks are still printing in colors (cyan, lt cyan, magenta, lt magenta, black and yellow) and I have yet to see any pink PiezoFlush on the printouts. I checked the capsules and the PiezoFlush fluid levels are lowering.
I am leery of running any more cleanings as I don’t want to fill the waste ink pads or possibly damage the heads from too many cleanings. I’m also not sure if I should continue to run nozzle checks or how long I should keep running them until I see pink PiezoFlush being printed.
I have downloaded a 6 Color Purging Test Pattern and was wondering if I should use that to get the PiezoFlush into the print heads?
Also, when I do install the color InkThrift CL cartridges, will I most likely have to go through the same procedure to get color ink into the heads and purge out all the PiezoFlush fluid?
