I have been having some problems getting piezography to work on my Epson 7800
Here is relevant info:
I flushed the printer from epson color inks with piezoflush. I was able to obtain perfect nozzle check patterns with the piezoflush installed.
I very carefully followed the instructions to install a P2 system with warm neutral on my 7800. I had been printing with photoblack prior to the flush. I have the piezography matte black in the 7800 black slot, and the photo black in the yellow slot.
Initially I had some trouble getting a clean nozzle check but now it seems to print clean. I am attaching an image of the last nozzle check I printed. You will notice that the first nozzle check pattern is good, then some gaps emerge. not sure why that is
I installed QTR and Print Tool as per instructions. Loaded the profiles for the 7800 and 7880. I would like to print with Cone type 2 + 5, Epson Exhibition Fiber, Hahnemule Photo Rag, and Canson Entrada–at least at first, until I determine what I like the most.
I tried a test print on the Cone Type 2 and Canson Entrada. I am getting a very strange result. Almost like the image is inverted, but not quite. Also the image is very dark. I am attaching an image of the print I made.
Here are the ink positions that I am using
LLB – Gloss Optimizer
Light Magenta – Warm Neutral 5
Light Cyan – Warm Neutral 3
LB – Warm Neutral 6
B – Matte Black
Cyan – Warm Neutral 2
Magenta – Warm Neutral 4
Yellow – Opaque Photo Black
I am pretty sure that I put the right ink in the right cartridge. User error is always possible but I tried to work very carefully and slowly so I doubt it.
NB: I am posting with without the mentioned photos because I cannot seem to make your uploader accept the images. I am happy to email them to you if necessary
You help would be much appreciated
