Epson 9900
« on: November 05, 2012, 01:30:12 PM »

I thought I share this.

Went away for better than 8-weeks shooting in and around Jackson Hole.  Actually left Tucson August 22 returning Oct 19th.  Turned off the printer and computer and locked the studio.  I did leave a humidifier running which kept the studio at a near constant 50% ( it also helped that it was the tail end of monsoon season).  I hired someone to come in once a week to check and fill the humidifier while gone. 

Long story short - got home, turned on the printer and printed a nozzle check.  Had a couple problem areas, did a clean then another nozzle check.  Perfect.  I've been back now going on 3-weeks and have been printing almost every other day with no problems nor concerns. 

I estimate it took me less than 15 minutes (nozzle check, cleaning, and nozzle check) to have the printer up and fully functional. 

Very pleased.

I've had my 7900 since December 2008 and I'm away for between 2 to 5 weeks several times each year. The printer is typically turned off from roughly a week before I leave until about a week after I get back home, which makes between 4 to 7 weeks turned off a few times per year. Sometimes the nozzle check is perfect when I turn it back on and sometimes it needs a couple of normal nozzle pair cleanings, but it's never been a problem.
