I “killed” my old R2880 by not using it in a place with 0 to 10% humidity. (I will give it one more try with the InkjetMall flush kit that is on its way.)
Humidity? I have seen suggestions from putting the printer in an air-tight box (these cost more than my new P600!) to keeping a wet sponge inside the printer when it’s not being used. Is there a way to attack this issue? Has anyone used a drug store humidifier? I am gone for three or four weeks a couple of times a year taking photos to print when I get home. Should I look for someone to take in my printer as they would a pet dog or cat?
Flush kit? Do I have the suggestions regarding using flush kits right? Remove the ink cartridges and cap them? One hole or two to plug in each? Will I have the plugs? Put in the flush kit that has been sitting unused (plugged? same question here) and do exactly what? Put in a paper towel soaked in PiezoFlush under the cartridges first? Aren’t there ink lines in this new-generation Epson? How many times should the cleaning cycle be run for this printer after the flush kit is installed?
Please! Help me keep this P600 alive! Thanks.
