I have a very low mileage R2400. I got excited about the prospect of saving money, so I purchased a complete system, chip resetter, cleaning kit, waste bottle, etc. The printer was working perfectly with Epson carts.
I started out with one cart, lt cyan. Again, it worked perfectly. A week or two later the oem carts were running down so I replaced all four on the right side of the printhead. It started up fine, but a day or two later a nozzle check showed problems. All four carts on the right had drained out. Strangely, the lt cyan on the left was fine. I came to the forum and read that I should clean. Perhaps the right capping station was causing all the ink to drain out. I followed all the cleaning steps: capping stations, wiper, points, underneath the printhead, etc. and refilled the carts again. One day later, all four carts on the right had drained or mostly drained, as well as one on the left. Good ol’ lt cyan was still hanging strong.
This is disappointing. Burning through the new ink, without even making prints. What’s wrong?
