I have a used but well functioning 9900 that will be converted to Piezography Pro. I’m new to this machine but have had Piezography printers installed in a number of 9800s and 7800s. I want to get the 9900 into the best operating shape before the conversion. So…
Which head alignments are necessary? Uni-D, Bi-D, both? Is there an advantage to using gloss paper over the recommended Enhanced Matte? (With our Canon printers, it was recommended by Canon tech support to use glossy paper for head alignments).
I was thinking to replace the dampers while doing the 9900 conversion. (To my knowledge the previous owner hasn’t ever replaced the dampers). With our last 9800, installing new dampers when converting to Piezo seemed to keep the 9800 happy and clog free. With the 9900 installation, what is the optimal time to replace the dampers? Would it be after flushing the Epson ink out and letting the Piezoflush sit 24-48 hours, and before doing the init fill with Piezo Pro ink?
