Hi, I’ve just attempted to switch from colour inks to Piezography
This is a new printer. My fourth in fact. Before this was another brand new 1430 and before this two preowned R2880’s
I’ve had problems with banding and clogging with all of them.
I was getting a perfect nozzle check with the colour cartridges. I printed a number of test images with the colour inks to vet the printer and ensure there were no unresolvable banding issues as detailed in the knowledge base. This all went well, the images look smooth to me.
Next I installed a set of piezoflush cartridges to flush out the color inks by printing the 8 channel flush image in QTR. I did this until all traces of colour ink was gone.
Then I installed the piezography ink using EasyFill carts as recommended to me. Suddenly I am getting clogged nozzles, straight away. Tried a few head cleans and the problem is only getting worse.
Why would the nozzles begin to clog immediately after installing the black and white inks when I have had no nozzle issues with the original carts or piezoflush on this new printer?
