Hello to all clever Epson people
I spent a week trying to save an Epson Pro 7900 with a bad printhead.
It has a hardware failure on the black and yellow channels.
I ended up installing Gutenprint and swapping the clolors in software, so that it now prints black from the green channel and yellow from the orange channel.
Next I swapped the physical cartridges. It needed of course a swap of the chips and also a bit of modification of the cartridge, so that it could physically fit in the ‘wrong’ place.
So… It seems to work.
However, I keep printig, but the ink lines are sp full of color, that it takes forever to get rid of the ink in it.
Does anyone have an idea? Can I manually suck it out?
