How often do you normally print vs. how long does the printer sit unused?
I print 3 pages of 10 colors daily to keep head fresh.
What is the current ink level of the orange cartridge?
It is half full.
Have you recently refilled the cartridge?
Does the orange work consistently while printing, and drop out overnight when the printer sits unused, or does it also drop out during printing?
It is not consistant during printing. It sometimes prints more yellow and other times more of a darker mustard color
Is the green working consistently well?
The green works perfect.
Please remove and look at the orange cartridge- is there ink in the thin channel leading down from the air vent hole?
It has about 1" of ink on the thin zig zag channel and about 1/2" on the thin straight channel
Have you replaced any parts in this printer, such as the wiper blade, capping station/pump assembly, ink selector unit (dampers), and/or print head?
No parts have been replaced.
