OK thank you to all whom have offered their advice to help me in this thread but I've had enough. I've tried all I can and now I'm presented with an error code and the printer head just locks itself to the left.

The printer will be going back and I'm probably going to get something else if I can. Not sure I want to see another 7610 again ...

A quick question to those who have already been so helpful.

When the replacement 7610 arrives I'm going to jump right in with these refillable pigment ink cartridges. They did cost me over half of what the printer did after all ...

I simply took the cartridges out of the busted 7610 and have left them sitting on a paper towel ready for the new printer to turn up.

Is this OK? Am I OK just to drop these into the new machine or should I be storing them in a different way? The new printer should be here in a couple of days and I just want to make sure everything is correct from the off with this one as to avoid any problems like I had with the last one.

Thanks again,
Sean.

you should do the initial startup with the oem carts,
then add your third party inks after

you should get a new set with the new printer

Thank you, I'll start with the supplied inks then swap over to the refillable's once it's started up.

i would honestly steer clear of any ink that is NOT official Epson ink. the extra money you spend on official cartridges is the price you pay for minimal ink flow problems. i speak from my own experience.
just a quick read-through of the epson site re. their ink technology basically outlines this;

"Epson inks are the result of on-going research and development, and intend to deliver a level of output quality and user confidence that no other can match."

read more at the link below...

https://www.epson.co.uk/viewcon/corp...s/index/10961/

I realise they 'have to say this' but there is a reason that alternative inks are cheaper. In this business you definitely get what you pay for. Your printer is made to use this ink so to get the most out of it's life, feed it what it needs.
Good luck mon frere.

This is pure nonsense.

First of all if you sublimate you have no choice, or if you wish to use special heat transfer inks that don't color shift and have deeper blacks then you have no choice.

Not to mention if you are making a business out of this then you save $2 per shirt if you are printing 11 x17 size transfer.

I have used 3rd party inks since they first appeared for heat transfer.

BTW, none of the printer manufactures are making their own inks, they have 3rd parties make them.

The OEM's are hosing us on inks prices.

my bad if we're referring to sublimation. that's not my bag.

The thread section is "Printers and Inks for Inkjet and Laser Transfers".

The OP is making inkjet heat transfers ...

"I tried printing out several sheets of random imagess, low quality and then tried printing my usual designs on JPSS and 3G Jet Opaque."

Use of 3rd party inks is mainstream accepted business practice in this section.

Replacement 7610 arrived this evening. Went through normal set-up and installed the OEM inks that came with the machine as advised.

Couple of print outs and the colours etc were perfect.

Great so now time to swap over to the refillable pigment ink cartridges.

I ran a print head nozzle check after putting the refillable cartridges in and the results were good apart from the odd missing dot. So I ran a couple of head cleans followed by nozzle checks and as you can see the results are awful. The 1st print outs are from the top down, so the ones at the bottom are the most recent.

Giving up on these refillable cartridges and I'm contacting city ink express with pictures to return them.

Now I've put the OEM inks that were supplied with the printer back in but obviously lucks not with me as the print outs are still awful. Black is fine but the other 3 colours are largely non-existent.

I've just turned the thing off now as the whole things just ridiculous and I didn't really want to be running more than 3 or 4 print head cleans.

Guess I'll see what it's like in the morning but any suggestions as to what I should do to make sure I don't destroy this printer either?

Bare in mind all I've done is pretty much do a couple of print outs with the OEM inks in a brand new printer, put in some refillable cartridges, do a few nozzle checks and cleans, realised the cartridges must be rubbish so put the OEMs back in.

Thanks,
Sean.

From what I understand, after doing a head clean or 2, you should really let it sit for the rest of the day.
