Before you ask, I use my 1430 with a neutral K6 inksel. Unfortunately for me I have a problem with the paper feed mechanism and I can only use light weight paper for know.
I first did some test with OEM inks to see check the nozzles, I then cleaned everything I could with Piezo Flush and installed the inkset.
I printed the Piezo 256 step XRITE I1Pro v2, I1Profiler Target using the Photo Rag 308 curves but on Red River Premium matte paper and all seem fine. I saved the values I measured into Piezo Pro to create new curves for this Red River paper. All seems fine up to here.
Now trying to print a normal image using these curves or the Photo Rag 308, I get this.
On the left, the 1430 result for RR Premium matte, center same paper on a Canon Pro-1000 and on the right, same image on the Canon and on glossy paper (I tried a little toning here).
I’m sure I’ve done something wrong but no idea of what it is.
I bought this printer and the inkset as a proof of concept kind of thing before investing more money into this.
I’d pretty much like to be able the make a good print on this paper and this printer before going further.
Any help would be appreciated,
