I’m not sure where to post this, so feel free to move it. I couldn’t see a GO section of the forum.
When I perform a nozzle check on my R1900, there’s a checker-board pattern that I understand is the check for GO. But if I have GO in a K3 printer, is there a way to do a nozzle check on that channel, since K3 printers don’t have this part of the nozzle check?
Background: I have a problematic R2400 that I was on the verge of taking to the e-waste, but I hit upon the idea of using it as a GO only printer. The issue for me with GO is that it gets used up fairly quickly. When I refill there’s a head clean, which uses up the other inks. So a printer with GO in one working channel and flush or clogs in the other channels is well suited to GO printing.
I know that GO very rarely clogs. But given the history of this particular printer, I want to be sure that the LLK channel where GO is installed is flowing correctly. Unsurprisingly, the LLK channel hasn’t been one of the problematic ones, and I had a good LLK nozzle pattern before the switch. But even so, it would be nice to be able to check, other than doing an overcoat and trying to see if there’s any unevenness in the coating. Is there a way?
