Thanks for the reply. I filled the new cartridge in the proper fill hole (not the vent hole), as I did with all the other cartridges. Good question though. Time between good results and bad results…immediately after refilling cartridge. Now, perhaps I did not shake the ink enough (shade 5) before refilling. So, I emptied the cartridge with syringe back into shade 5 bottle. Shook the bottle really well, and refilled the cartridge…results same. I cannot get ink out of that particular cartridge. Blotting doe not help. All other cartridges work fine… I am about to use spare cartridge and see if that helps. I will be using the gloss cartridge in place of VLM cartridge. That will prove out whether problem lies with cartridge.
Thanks for the additional information. It’s strange that you were having good results with this cartridge until refilling it with ink, and now the cartridge is not printing… Please tell me, which hole did you use to refill the cartridge? When you print a nozzle check, are any nozzles printing in the LM channel, or is he entire position blank? How much time was between when you were printing well to when you refilled the LM cartridge (was this immediately after printing, or weeks later?) Have you refilled any other cartridges since originally filling and installing them? Do you have any other LM cartridges to install and test to determine if the print head channel is clogged, or if the LM refill cartridge is restricting flow somehow?
Please let me know so I can help you resolve this and get back to happily printing.
