Hello Everyone this is my 1st question... I've been googling how to fix my printer problems and wouldn't you know it. Some one else had the SAME EXACT problem. But I can't figured out what the answer to his problems were. I've got two art shows, and two artist that are depending on me and this happens NOW!
I've been printing with my Epson 9900 for 3 years. It's been great. Any "usual" problems I've figured out. But I'm panicking. I can't figure this one out.
One day me printer just wants to clean all the time, and It makes sense b/c I can see faint banding, even though the nozzle checks look great. I clean, and think "Oh Epson how you love to drink expensive ink" little did I know the nozzle checks had this faint little imperfection in the LLK and LM. (it's as thin as spiders web)
Well long story short:
"Cleaning Error - Automatic Head cleaning failed retry" - I did the recommended maintenance from the manual - no good
I've done the windex paper towel trick (Many times)
I've done head alignment uni-and bi-directional ( I can see the clog in the print out)
I've got through one maintenance tank in two days. I'm getting stuck can someone please tell me what's going on. I'm literally having the same problem as this http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=70144.0
Even the faint blurring in the start of the print.
Till I can figure out the answer I'm going to print at 2880, and have extra paper fed before the ink lays down. but it doesn't solve anything- this is just a band aid for deadlines.
Thank you in advance. I've been reading threads... this might be my new favorite nerdy printing thing to do =)
