I have had the above for a while. I don't print much. Now all of a sudden seems like everytime I go to print the dang things are leaking all over the page. I emailed Ross and he sent a pdf explaining this issue. But damn it, I dind't have issues before and now I am trying to print a shirt and have ruined several transfer papers due to the carts "leaking". Looked and don't see the inside of the printer swimming in ink.
These things are becoming a major time consuming headache.
Anyone else have this leaking issue and if so how if possible to overcome it. ?
Hope you guys are still around! I just now put my refillable carts in. Had them for a long time in the box and just now getting around to needing to change black and cyan so I did them all at once. I did a head clean, printed out the line test page just once and then it printed beautifully. Am I looking at a mess soon? Were your leaks on the first install or a refill where you took the cartridges out to do the refill and then reinstalled them? I could envision problems if someone were to take the carts out to REFILL them as there is a membrane to puncture and RE-puncturing it might leak. That being as is, I noticed that there seemed to be a bag/sack/liner inside the case and when trying to get the 15 ml in as instructions, some ink would get between the inner liner and the outside casing. Is that the ink I should be looking at to leak ? Did I mess up royally on the ones that the ink made the excursion to parts where it didn't belong?
don't worry about it
if you have problems ring ross and he will walk you through it.
i myself am using a new printer c120 with oem inks. i found it easier (although more expensive) not having the problems with leaks etc:
I sometimes have this problem right after refilling. But, usually after one or two prints, it stops. I have gotten to where I always run one or 2 sheet of regular paper thru the printer before actually printing on transfer paper - that way I don't waste any of the transfer sheets and can be sure my design will print the way I want. (sometimes after sitting a few days, my first print will have lines in it - it helps to "push" that ink thru with a couple test prints.)
