I'm guessing that you've carried out all the tests on the printhead to ensure you have no nozzles blocked?

Have you carefully examined the ribbons that connect to the printhead? Look for the silvered track folding over or burns - both are common and become more likely the more often you disconnect the printhead.

PROBLEM SOLVED! I decided to take another look at my printhead. I just had to clear it with some cleaning solution

do you mean you just put a swab with cleaning solution and cleaned directly on the print head and then it fixed the problem.... that's it????

We will gently wipe the printhead on occasion with cleaning solution, never wiping any part of it with a swab that's already wiped across it. We go from back to front only.

Also, on rare occasions, we'll soak the printhead carefully in solution.

When channels drop, the majority of the time it's a damper. Ink accumulates in there over time. Priming the dampers does a lot and should be done often enough if the printer's been sitting.

We just did our first F4 clean on Saturday, the first one in over a month. Nothing unstuck our channel -- damper prime, damper replacement, F2 clean. So after an hour of sitting, we ran the F4 and everything was fine, but I think it's time to get into her a bit more and figure out why we lost our channel yesterday.

We've been printing less white than usual (getting cold in Chicago, fewer t-shirts) so I'm thinking we just have some sludge somewhere.
