Thanx for all the replies
Run the nozzle check test. Assuming it fails then you either have a clogged
head or a dead head.
I runned this check several times, in fact the PGBK "grid" is never perfect, I mean some small lines are missing here and there.
And if he has a clogged head, the regular cleaning cycle may not be
enough to clear it. I connect a hose with a pressure syringe and hot
water to get the job done. I find the best thing to keep the heads
unclogged is heavy usage of the printer. It would be interesting to
hear how many times those black tanks have been refilled. How much
mileage is on the printer so to speak?
I filled the black tanks about 3-4 times each. Also, I do not use this printer a lot, just a few prints each week.
I wonder if there's some web page or site where I can find some detalied cleaning process for printer heads.
Actually, it'd not be such a good idea to go buy another printer, this one is almost new for me.
