I just received my brand new Epson 9900 printer, installed the Epson cartridges to make sure everything is working fine with the printer before installing the brand new Cone cartridges and ink.
Unfortunately one of the Cone ink cartridges split while in the printer, and over 1/4th of the full cartridges spilled over the printer, the paper basket and floor. I spend half a day trying to remove the ink from the brand new tiled floor and had to scrape out the grout, repaint two walls (since the ink spattered) and have resigned to a slightly pink floor. I also resigned to the fact that I will never get the ink out of the fabric of the paper basket, but do need to find a way to get the ink of from the inside of the ink cartridge compartment since I need to get Epson in to have a look at the printer for other, hopefully unrelated issues.
Does anyone know how to get the ink of the printer, from inside the ink cartridge compartment? The compartment has ridges and I’ve tried even a knife to get the ink to come lose from there but no success so far, I also can not get it of the plastic compartments. I’ve scrubbed and used cleaning cream to no avail.
The cartridge got replaced but still problems with it, such as that it reads as empty while there is still 3/4 to 1/2 ink left in it, it behaves more like a 125ml cartridge than a 350ml cartridge, same for the cartridge next to it, will post on another thread about this once I’ve gotten the ink of.
Also, could there be ink spilled in the rest of the printer?
