Thanks for the info, The Hat.
Is the OEM ink like a cleaner or something? What's the difference? So.....is it more likely a print head failure, as opposed to a clog? Is air in there a possibility at all?
Really? What about one of the pharmacist's solutions? Or removing and cleaning the...
I can't really see that weird pattern in the white band in the BK in these photos. Can you guys see them ok? Well, anyhow, I'll post a close-up of it here, just in case it helps to figure out whether this is printhead failure or clog or whatever.
Please see attached 2 files (hopefully that works ok). The first one is the original nozzle check done a week or two ago, the second is the one from today, #19, and I have 17 more nozzle checks in between these two. I'm refilling OEM carts with PC inks. This is the first problem ever with...

I think I may now have somewhat of a theory as to why this happened: (?)
The story from the beginning: I'm printing a 5 copy print job. The first 2 copies are fine, then on the last 3 copies, there are horizontal lines. Proceeded with nozzle checks, cleanings, and test prints of my cmy and...
