This is related to Piezography inkset. I headed to Chicago for Thanksgiving and decided to leave a Piezoflush soaked paper towel sitting underneath my R2400 print head on Tuesday night before heading out. I did this because it seems that I have had to run head cleaning cycles several times even after using the printer daily (in the pm) since converting my R2400 to Piezography about 3 weeks ago.
Anyway, I re-started the printer last night and printed a test page, one of the patterns had a single bar sitting below and at an opposite angle to the “normal” printed pattern. I never seen this before. I ran the nozzle check and cleaning cycle, but the printer went half way before telling me it could not continue the cleaning due to one of the cartridges out of ink (Light Magenta). The EPSON status monitor showed the same information for that particular cartridge, I pulled it out and sure enough the ink was gone. I went through and checked the other cartridges and found two others were gone but the EPSON status monitor showed anywhere from 25 to 40% remaining. I am a bit worried because I read about the hazards of running out of ink. I could have sworn I filled the cartridges to the rim. Some questions:
- Is there a good way to confirm a full cartridge?
- Is there a way to check the damper for an ink position? I read through the tech article on damper clogs, and worried that this might be my problem.
- Is it bad to leave a Piezoflush soaked paper towel underneath the print head for long periods?
Thanks and best regards,
