[/B]I use mic.os with a new set of conecolor pro inks… first the matte black would not recognize itself - I would turn on the battery and get the cart working with some cleaning cycles… then the Photo Balck began the same. I would turn on the baattery, and then have to do 3 to4 cleanings. Then it was yellow - no ink showing in the print out. It was much mor stubborn. I got it working and then the LC and C wouljdn’t work. they still don’t work because I had used a “full wastebottle” of ink. Thie doesn’t make sense to me. The ink is supposed to be 'encpsulated" and the new carts that I have have never had other inks . A few times wnen I couldn’t get the cart reconized I put in a new epson matte black cart.and this got the matte black going. I realize that something is not proper but I don’t know what to look at. Can you help me? Thank you. Cheers, Roy
[li]I am not sure you received my messages this morning, so i will send them again. I do have an epson set of carts. bu;tI uspect they are largely empty. I will try then. the serror showed up whilr I was printing using the cone carts. i wouljd fo ahead and do the nozzlecheck and then the nozzle claning to clear the nozzlethat was not functoning. They were stubborn to clear. I would then print a bit, and then there wouljd be another ‘error’…To a nozzle check and more cleaning cycles for oten 2 or 3 nozzles.I would need to run 5a - 6- 7 cycles. And ow there was 6 or 7 nozzles not functioning. I sent a scan of a purting test pattern yesterday to Jon… There has been no power failures. As I said i have been happily printing probably 200 pages or more. then the problem began. First the matte black, and so on. More and more of the cartswould fail and now you can see that only 3 carts are working properly. [/li][/ol]
[li]My nest message said that i have made sure the carts. are ful of ink as I go and the batteries turned on.[/li][li]I inserted my epson carts, printed a B W page sucessfuly ant the did the nozzle test. 2-3 are missing, 4 is partial,5 hs a few-----, 6 okay, 7 missing 8okay, [/li][li]I inserted the conea carts and the Nozzle chek is th;le same as with the epson. so, no joy.
