Just curious as to why the color ink seems to get depleted when I'm only printing grayscale? Is there some kind of 'mini cleaning cycle' going on whenever I print something? I would think only the black ink would be used.
It's still no better. I think it's new printhead time. Don't even buy from this guy? https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Genuine-Canon-QY6-0087-000-printhead-for-Maxify-IB4020-MB2020-MB2320-MB5020/224346590629?ss
Is it safe to assume that my problems will be fixed with buying a new print head? I'm still getting streaks when printing. I don't get any print errors. These print heads are expensive. Is it safe to buy one (OEM not made in China) from someone on ebay to save a few bucks?
I'm not sure what you mean by the nozzle check is good to go. They are still not perfect and I'm still getting streaks on printed pages. Granted I've only tried to print one picture after a couple of different flushes. How many printed pages do you feel would get the nozzle check perfect?
I guess it's possible that the head is electrically damaged but each print check for black fills in more and more blocks so I wouldn't think it is electrical. It just seems weird that it is not totally unclogged as many times as I have cleaned this. It sounds like I just need to keep cleaning it.
