Thanks for the heads up. I may well stick another Epson official cartridge in there to see how it performs.

I posted this in another thread but this might also be useful here so people can see my experience with this printer ...

Well my refillable cartridges with pigment ink arrived today from city ink express. I was eager to try it out so filled the cartridges up as per the instructions and set about doing a print head clean and nozzle check ready to actually print something I could use.

First nozzle check print wasn't too bad. Only 1 small break in one of the black lines. So I performed a print head clean and tried again. It was getting worse. More print head cleans and this is what I'm left with. Check the attached picture ...

No black at all now and the remaining colours look awful.

This printer is driving me nuts. It was supposed to make my life and my little printing business better but all it's been so far is a massive headache!

Any ideas welcome?

Too many cleanings can actually be bad. Fold a paper towel so it fits in the rail below the head and then dampen the towel. The head will lock, so push the power button, and while it is repositioning the head, before it locks in place, pull the power. Then place the paper towel in the rail and move the head over it. Let it sit there for at least 15 minutes.

what quality setting are you using?

if i just use standard i get ink blobs/runs,
but standard vivid and up are perfect

hope you can get this working,
if not return for a new machine if you can

you may have a lemon

Did you prime the carts after you filled the ink?

IntotheT - To be honest I hadn't settled on a setting. I'm still playing around with a few but will stick standard-vivid for today's tests

Ok I've done the damp paper towel thing under the print head and left it for almost 30 mins. I've attached a picture to make sure I'm doing it correctly.

Printed a nozzle check and it's almost bought the black 100% back into play but the other 3 colours are awful still.

Guess I'll try again

Blacks almost totally correct but the other 3 colours don't seem to be improving. Anyway I have the damp paper towel back under there and will perform more head cleans in tandem.

Really need this to work today as I have orders to get through ...

I've been doing this damp paper towel thing and print head cleaning for hours now. Black is fine but the other 3 colours are still non existent.

It's not printing any colour at all now. I wonder if the refillable cartridges are the issue. I have some spare cartridges that I know work. If I can get the colour to print using those then I guess I know the cartridges are the issue and not the printer.

I've had to switch to my old WF-2010 to do some printing. Funny thing really, it's been laying on it's side for 2 weeks un-used. Plug it in and print and it works perfectly first time.

Well, you may need to remove the head and do the syringe flush thing. There is a video on YouTube for that.
