You are better off just using plain household ammonia. If you don't know exactly what's in Windolene, it could damage your printer. Here, the only thing that works is original blue Windex. Any of the other versions with "fancy scents" or "extra cleaning power" are unsafe to use in the printer. It may be ammonia-based, but have other chemicals than regular Windex in it.

gemais, yes, it is a common window cleaner in Australia. I believe it is a mix of alcohol and ammonia.

It also works for me on my dye sub inks, to get them off of the heat press rubber and teflon sheets.

Ive posted this else where on the forum boards but this thread seems more current so Im posting here as well.

I am having a little problem with my T1100.

Printing sublimation inks onto sub paper and Im getting white dots through the printed area. as well as ink appearing after the print area in the same dotted pattern

Checked the print area whilst it was printing and its fine.

Its only when the paper goes through the front platen with the "spike" rollers that the problem appears.

Any idea how to fix?

Never heard of that before. The Epson Printers seem to throw up all sorts of little glitches. I still have to get around to trying to clean mine of blockages. Bought all the necessary items. The black is fine and I use this one just to print invoices etc. My older one is still working fine. If I do come across some info on this problem I will let you know.

Check your paper type (matte glossy etc) settings, sounds like the rollers are riding in ink that is not soaked into the paper sufficiently and pick off the ink giving you those white dot areas. I use matte settings for sublimation.

Paper type settings effect how much ink lays down on the paper due to different paper absorbtions.

Also, if you can't fix with paper settings try a higher DPI as that slows down the printer head travel speed, that might give the ink more time to soak in the paper before it reaches the roller with the nimples.

Thanks for the responses.
I found out it was a combination of factors.
I am trying out new sub paper and my ink settings that were fine for my old paper was too much for this new paper.
Cut back on the ink and all if fine.. Thanks
