    How much is too much? After spending a couple days, many cartridge swaps between refillable and OEM, many printer purge cycles, ..., I’ve moved to manually (at this point) printing a “purge sheet” every other day.

    Missing segments in nozzle check

    Besides "none," how many segments can be missing in a nozzle check? My WF-3620 has one segment missing on the black channel. This is after switching to PC inks & cartridges and several nozzle checks and 4 or 5 head cleanings over a few hours. Thanks
