I am switching an Epson 4900 from the stock color to all black ink for film out put for screen printing. The lines in the 4900 seem very long. I have the all black ink carts in place and I figured I could just print several large sheets and exhaust the ink in the lines, but it’s like Mary Poppins bag, it never runs out.
I have been advised against the power cleans, because the 4900 print head is so fragile. I also know about the Initial System charge that can be done with the software from 2Manuals. I am really looking to avoid this route. Not because I’m too cheap to pay the $30, but because It only works on a PC and I hate everything PC. Is there a better way to flush the lines? Some really saturated file I can print that will exhaust the maybe 30ml of ink per line?
