What is the best way to introduce white ink into my printer. I just got Sprint factory refurb and I have had it for about a week. I started by running CMYK and Cleaning Solutions where the the white ink would be. I did this so I could get used to the printer. Now I feel I am ready to start printing white. I orginally used the ink charge feature to get the ink into the system. My questions is can I do something like the ink charge but only for the white ink lines? The ink charge uses so much ink and I don't want to send money to the waste tank on the CMYK. Is there any way I can do this?

Thanks
Michael

I got impatient :rolleyes: so I started usign the purge fuction in EK Studio. It worked ok and it was really slow but it gave me an idea. So I created a big white box for it to printed and kicked up the ink droplet size and the white ink output to 4 and hit print. It only took about half the print square before I was laying down white ink. Problem Solved!:D

Michael,

A much more economical way to do this is to attach a syringe to the exit tube on the pump and draw out the CF and white ink in. In my case as soon as you see the white ink in the syringe, do a head clean and you are ready to print. The purge patter will work(or a large block of "white" printed through EK) but you will get a large amount of mixing of the CF and white and you will not really know where one begins and the other ends. The syringe is fast, It gives you feedback as you watch the lines fill and you'll have well primed and agitated ink at the head. Make sure that you've shaken, your carts before you do this to ensure that the ink is "full strength"
