The long needle in that kit is for ink cartridges?
..
Was surprised with that long needle too - is is a tube -not sharp end:
probably the Chinese know about problems that we overlooked...

Why, Bonjour is crippled with limited settings and no icc profiles.

Thanks for the link Pieter! Ok yes I see that rubber insert in the nozzle cap is different from mine. Mine has single open area with a big hole in the middle, so no way to block one side. I'm going to get one of these to try instead so I can do one colour at a time.

The long needle in that kit is for ink cartridges?

Congrats on the successful refill!

LPS Computer's theory is that the air gets into the tubes over time because of small leakage at the seals where the printhead pins plug into the ports on the carriage, so they sell those seals for those mentioned earlier.

Wherever the air comes from, I think it increases if we do more headclean cycles. The printer puts the heads on the capping station and the priming pump applies suction to the nozzles (similar to how we refill them). So if air has a way in, the suction brings more of it into the system.

Would never use those seals if they change the distance of the printhead to the paper...

Yes I have reservations about them too because of that. The heads definitely sit a bit higher, maybe 1.5 mm or so. At the time I was just trying to get the printers operational again, and then got hit by a car so haven't been able to work with them more to see the effect on print quality. When I get back to it I might replace them by making my own seals, similar to those mentioned in another thread here recently.

I used this one :
https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/1005003178137702.html
 in the rubber that you put on the printhead there is only one litlle hole on on side. So only one side of the funnel is in use ( i use a blackink side and a colour side)

I just did some more filling : my MK-R heads were not filled with MK , but they were filled with red recently:

I sucked some MK from the tubes after removing the head- there was no air in it
with the MK ink i filled the 56 gram head and came out with about 60 gram.
perfect nozzels with all my 2 printers now; ... knock knock

My idea is that if there is air in the tubes it will end up in the printheads.
so the tubes will remain filled - unless some air comes in while changing ink cartridges or when it is empty but the printer somehow wants to suck ink anyway..
-
Just bought second hand 2 'new' 2022 printheads for 70€
have no bad experience with neither old ink- or old printheads... so that makes life cheaper.

I have the LPS Computers seals on them and since they make the heads sit a bit higher in the carriage....

I ditto the issues to the P900 that Eric had.

Brand new P900 never fed more than a sheet or to at the git-go and when I printed on Exhibition Fiber Paper, scratches. After most of the year, Epson suggested I use the front-feed to print on EFP but the feed never could be pulled out and the printer bricked.

The replacement, a refurb worked great and the feeder worked and didn't scratch the paper. First, the blobs along the margin of EFP, then it pulled in several sheets of Prem. Luster and it, too, bricked.

Took it to authorized service provider and it's beyond repair.

Solution from Epson after giving them a call? Buy a new printer...

So I did, I bought a 3880 that had the black valve issue for a good price, had the authorized repair place rebuild it and now I have a reliable printer that will outwork the two P900 printers that didn't last a year each without a sweat.

Now instead of having to worry about the next failure, I'm printing up a storm.

In the mean time, like Eric, I've got a bunch of P900 carts and waste tanks sitting around...
