I have watched the videos provided by Cobra Ink, done everything but stand on my head, contacted Cobra Ink, all for naught...



I'm pretty discouraged with these two boat anchors, so am seriously considering switching over to a Sawgrass...
Epsons are known to clog even with their own ink. I've known this for years as I've had Epsons in the past. However, I purchased an Epson for sublimation knowing this. I'm capable of fixing this if/when it happens. However, if you're not technically inclined they I would definitely recommend Sawgrass or a more expensive brand where they can hold your hand when you have issues.

The way I figure it, the Epson printer and ink is far cheaper than the Sawgrass and I can probably replace my printer 2 more times if I HAVE to to even approximate the cost of the Sawgrass. For me, it is worth it.

I use InkOwl in my Epsons, and have them set to print a photo that I sell on a regular basis, every 4 days. I have not had any clogs in almost a year of use. The Sawgrass printers ink costs about 5 times what my Epsons cost! I have plans to get an Epson F570 in a couple of months. It is a 24" printer, made for sublimation. Epsons ink for it are very fairly priced. Along with it being BACKED by Epson, not like the converted printers!
Curious what you use to print a scheduled test page. I had set up on my desktop a task scheduler, but that meant I have to have my sub printer set as default. Now everytime I need to print on the office printer I have to remember to switch. Not a major problem, but still, there should be a way around it.

I wanted to get Harvey Head cleaner finally, but it seems that is long gone, as I can't seem to find it available on the interwebs anymore.

Is there a modern program out there that anyone know about like Harvey Head Cleaner that can schedule a print?

the problem I have been having is different, the sub ink I am using is working fine, except the colors are way off, my black when I press it come out looking a shade of dark purple and my reds and yellow are off also, is there a way to correct the color saturation before printing? Unlike my c88 where I can print at the best quality and always got great prints I am having this issue since I set up the printing a few weeks ago.

What brand ink are you using? Did it come with a color profile software?

There is another part to Sawgrass as a proposed solution.
How does Sawgrass play with ink they did not make?
The are equally as punitive as Epson if you go off the farm.
Epson has been in the sublimation business a very long time.
When WE users choose to inject foreign materials into the recipe why does that become the fault of the OEM?

Epson may have been used for dye sub for a long time but that was never their intended use and in fact if you had an issue, say printhead went bad, under warranty and explained you were using dye sub ink your warranty is gone.
