I shifted to Cone inks about 16 months back.
Not much of color printing, but use it to print large format Positives for my large format graphic auto Screen printer.
Cone color was working well till now.
A week back it suddenly started printing bands(Photo attached). Tried our level best, no avail.
Next day it started showing Error 1537 which is Cart pressurization problem.
Couldnt locate source of problem, called Epson technician. He said pressure problem, Left Cart Chamber may be replaced.
I researched and found online article "http://www.inkjetmall.com/tech/showthread.php?401-Error-1537" of Dana of IJM.
With Epson man's help located the faulty cart yellow.
Have no spare IJM yellow cart, bought Epson 350 ml Yellow cart, still problem is not solved.
NOW,9900 is not recognising Refilled IJM carts. ( My employee filled few of near-empty carts with Cone inks, but installed them without resetting them with the Chip Resetter.
I tried to reset with my Chip Re-setter, but it is not being resetted... (I think the Resetter is faulty with 2 pins sank inside (Photo).
Long story short, 9900 still says 'Insufficient ink to perform Head-cleaning'....
I doubt it is dangerous to the Head, leaving the printer as it is, 35 Celsius is temperature in day time here.
Q1: What should I do? How to reset the carts ?
A. Buy another Resetter?
B. Buy PiezoFlush® Cleaning Kit to clean Head?
My sister in Atlanta is leaving for India on 28th May, who will carry the replacement accessories from IJM. Will it be too late for the Head leaving in idle, non-printing condition ?
Please advise what to do.
