I have an Epson 4900 which I am converting to piezography. I ordered a set of carts for piezoflush and and set of carts for the ink. I am following the instructions to clear the old ink out the lines, and from what I understand there are two ways to do it.
- Use the epson service program to do an initial fill cycle. Then all the old ink goes into the maintenance tank.
- Print the purge target that is given in the instructions with QTR until all the old ink is on the paper.
I elected to do method 2 as my maintenance tank is approximately 65% full, and my shippment with a replacement tank is delayed. I understand that method 1 would have been way better, I just didn't want to get stuck with a full maintenance tank.
The only problem is that my printer is set to matte black, so when I have completely got rid of all the old ink, I have to redo the whole process with the photo ink. This is a problem, because all the other colors will just have piezoflush in them.
Is it possible to modify the purge target with all the colors, so it is just a full page of PK? I could easily do this in photoshop, but am unsure about the color management to ensure it is just the PK ink that is firing.
