I recently purchased a set of cartridges and piezoflush to clear a clog in my 9900. Most of the green channel and now the light black channel are blocked. I installed, primed and ran the init fill as instructed and let it sit for a few days. I noticed that fluid was filling from all cartridge but that the light magenta was always empty. The maintenance tank also needed changing. After running the second init fill I noticed that ink was running down the back of the printer and pooling around the back right caster as well as leaking out from the print head when I ran nozzle checks. The maintenance tank is full and again the light magenta is empty.
I put my original cartridges back in to see if that would stop the leaking and I have placed a big plastic back under the machine to protect the hardwood floors. The piezoflush that was leaking out around the print head has since stopped and I printed off a half a dozen purge files.
I’m thinking the valve of the cartridge is damaged because fluid leaks out of the nozzle when I hold it upside down. Would a damaged cartridge cause leaking from the printer like this?
Any tips on how to clean the piezoflush stain left on hardwood floors?
