Manual Nozzle Check - Mac OS X


#1

I’ve read many places here that manual nozzle checks are recommended. I used to do these using the Epson Print Utility, but this option seems to have disappeared (at least for me) on my current system (Mac OS 10.10.4).

On my 4800 I can run a test print and automatic nozzle check (the square pattern) from the control panel, but I believe that is my only option.

I have not found another way to run a manual nozzle check, or a way to install the EpsonPrint Utility. Is there a way to run manual nozzle checks? Hopefully there is something simple that I am missing.

Thanks!

I managed to figure this out myself. Somewhere along the way, the original EPSON printer driver was deleted - I only use QTR. Once I re-installed the EPSON driver, I was able to access the manual nozzle check by selecting the EPSON printer and then selecting the printer utility.

Feel free to delete this thread or leave it in case it helps someone else.
