I finally got my 9900 running… and rather than using my 9880, I think I will go on using the 9900 for the digital negatives and keep the 9880 for colour work (it does not clog at all). My question is, I have for the 9900 carts with some remains of the Selenium piezography inks that I purchased a year ago, with the Piezo DN kit that I bought. It came with shades Matte Black shade 1, Photo Black shade 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and GO.
Some of these inks had problems of pigment settling, some others are almost empty… I recently purchased from your guys a new batch of Piezo Selenium inks, Piezography2 / PiezoDN, Selenium tone, 220ml, set 8 (matte & glossy with HD options), for the 9880 (as my 9900 was dead). Now that I have decided to go on using the 9900, and as I had not installed those inks yet on the 9880, I would need to complete the missing inks for the 9900.
Tell me if I am wrong, but I suppose I would only need to buy some Shade 7 for the 9900, right?
Otherwise, Is the GO that I received with the last batch of Piezography 2 DN - HD inks for the 9880, the same I had on the 9900?
I would need to replace the old non-HD inks with the new HD inks… is it safe just to clean the carts with distilled water and replenish them with the new inks? Or can contamination still take place and you would recommend buying new carts for new inks?
Would it be recommended to throw away old inks if there is not much in the carts and I had big problems of pigment settling in the past? I would not like to refill bad stale inks with the new ones… and ruin them.
Thanks in advance,
