Misplaced L K & LLK Ink Cartridges Epson 7900… EEeek!
Replenishing starter cartridges in a relatively new machine The LLK mistakenly got put in the LK Slot. The mistake was not discovered until after making several 8 x 10 color prints.
The images were reproductions of oil paintings and just looked weird tone-wise. I realized the trouble had to have something to do with the cartridge swap, and sure enough that was it.
Then the switch was made to put the inks in the correct place, and a few normal cleanings run. I printed a B&W photo and the print had a “solarized” look to it.
I dialed up tech support and they said no harm done, but the misplaced ink must be “flushed out” of the line from the cartridge to the print head. It was also suggested that running several cleanings of the color pairs containing LK & LLK.
At this point I’m running 24 x 24" B&W prints of an image that is medium light in tone and not very contrasty, to try and “print my way out of it” Any input would be welcome!
