I have been using Epson 9890 with Image Specialist Pigment Inks since Feb'12.
All had been going gr8 until October, when Vivid Magenta started missing one
line in nozzle check which got cleared by a simple head clean through Menu.
A week later, the missing lines started to increase and about 6 lines on topand
4 lines on bottom were left. I couldnt clear the head despite numerous head
cleaning and power cleaning cycles.
Ultimately, in mid-November, I got the print head and damper assembly replaced
as advised and the printer started printing as new. But, today, the same problem
started in VM - lines started disappearing and no success with any sort of
Any help, as the replacement costed me a fortune and I am back to zero.
