Hi, I have an Epson R1400 and I recently purchased your ConeColor Pro ink kit. I mainly use the printer with your Carbon inks, but occasionally need to print color. I’ve switched between the Carbon inks and the Epson brand inks several times before without any problems, only needing 2-3 cleanings at most.
I filled the new cartridges with the ConeColor inks per the instruction sheet, made sure the vent plug was out in each, tapped each cart as noted, and made sure each cart was seated properly. I ran two cleaning cycles and the heads seemed to be close to printing properly except for a few blank spots (see 2nd cleaning in attached jpg file). Upon running one more cleaning cycle it got worse. I ran several more cleaning cycles (around 8 total now) and things got progressively worse (see 8th cleaning).
I’m not sure where to go from here since I haven’t had these problems with the Carbon inks, or switching back to the Epson inks. I need to get more prints made for an upcoming art festival, so I look forward to hearing from you soon.
