Looking for any help available…
I have been slowly replacing the original Epson cartridges with the Cone system. Up until recently, I had replaced the blacks and blue. I recently replaced LC and Y, and now the prints look washed out. This is for both colour and black/white images.
This is via both the standard OSX driver as well as via ImagePrint. When I set it for 1440, I get the washed out print. When I set it for 2880, the printer goes through the motions of printing, but the page is blank. It looks like it is dumping the ink into the maintenance cartridge as I went through a brand new cartridge just trying to trouble shoot this.
Have tried cleaning cycle, head alignment etc. I have also removed and gently agitated the ink, with no improvements.
I did notice that the yellow ink had some frothy bubbles, but after two weeks, I would think it would have settled.
Attached is a sample of two prints, one colour and the other B&W. Very much appreciate any help or advice.
