OK; we’ll give it a try, then. Order placed just now.
I’m new to this 7890. It had been sitting for a while with OEM inks installed before I acquired it, and all of the colors had missing segments in the nozzle check pattern. That said, it is a clean, low-mileage unit, with only ~400 pages on the counter. I have the inks working to my satisfaction now, but I am experiencing a strange issue. I have been using up the tail end of a 17in roll of matte (I guess) paper that came with it, printing some panoramic images, mostly to get the ink moving. The output looks fine, except right at the end it looks like the ink supply is being cut off. As the printer appears to be working well otherwise, and I haven’t seen this problem on the couple of cut-sheets I have run thru it, I suspect that I am not dialing up the correct roll paper settings in the print dialog box. Darned if I can figure out what, tho.
About the only thing I can point a finger at is that the cut sheets were 13 x 19, with correspondingly sized images, while the panos shown in the attachment were ~13 x 26 and 13 x 30 inches.
From looking thru your forum, you guys seem to have a lot of experience with these large printers, and I’m hoping you can say: “Yeah, dummy, ya gotta set A, B, and C to X, Y, and Z”. But any thoughts appreciated.
Oh, also: Since this machine has well-expired (2012, 2013) OEM inks installed, would it be beneficial to run an “initial fill” cycle after installing the new Conecolor inks, or would it be best to just keep printing and let the natural order of things take its course? Do you happen to know how much ink is involved in the initial fill?
