I have been having problems with my Epson 1280/continuous ink system/Magic Mix Inks. All the colors work great except the Yellow. I have tried the standard cleanings and installed the old epson cartridge which works fine after a cleaning. When I reinstall the bulk ink system it works for 2 or 3 prints and starts to fade again. I am in the process of using cleaning fluid but can't tell if its the head clogging or if the yellow system is getting air in it. Any suggestion would help Thanks

Try to put the bulk system at the same level as the cartridge (ex: put a book under the bulk system) this might help a lot.

You might also need to make several head cleaning and nozzle check before having the system up and running correctly.

Good Luck.

it's time to ditch the epson. in the last 5 years... i have gone through 6 epson printes trying to find one that works well CONTINUOUSLY with a CIS....a 2200... two 1280's... two r280s... and now my six month old 1400.

between myself, my epson repairman, and my CIS & ink vendor... we have pretty much figured out that it's a motherboard issue... a failsafe built in to prevent the use of a CIS....
