    Still breathing...

    Hey all... Trust you're all keeping well... Just wanted to confirm a pulse in case anyone had picked up on the fact that I've been offline at the store, with Covid this past week or so.. Got caught, had to rest, but vaccine did its thing and saved our assets from something worse so grateful...

    Ok... so somewhat tongue in cheek but I have a question for anyone who has an ET-7700 or ET-7750. If anyone happens to fit that profile, can you drop me a PM me (ie: start a conversation) and I'll explain in a bit more detail. Edit:

    Malwarebytes blocking site

    Hi folks, Sorry for being so very absent but well... life.. work... excuses. :idunno Anyway, just a quick heads up. Popped in briefly.. or tried to... and found that Malwarebytes is blocking the PrinterKnowledge site as a potential malware host indicating a Trojan. I've already run the site...

    OctoInkjet - Quick CV-19 heads up...

    Just a very quick note that the current health situation worldwide means that OctoInkjet is currently reducing working hours and doing what we can to ensure staff and customers are put at minimal risk. Part and supplies orders are already massively backlogged due to CV-19 so this is just an...

    @Nifty ... Please can you contact me directly using the contact email on my account. This issue with regards email is serious and is being treated as an external problem despite happening after upgrades at your end.

    Avoiding the Service Mode lockout ?

    I've recently been challenged to get some solutions together for more Canon printers and while it's an absolute nightmare to fit anything external to a Canon it seems there's more people willing/wanting to do it... So I'm slowly pulling resources together accordingly. One thing I'd not kept up...

    Legacy Inks : How to proceed?

    This is something of a commercial post of sorts but bear with me as I'm trying to avoid a sales pitch (as I hope will become apparent). We've just had a substantial clearout of ink stock for inks that are what I'd now call "legacy" items such as inks for the i9900, iP4200, etc... Some of them...

    Diving back in... annnd out again ;)

    I know I've been more than a little remiss 'of late' (read: 2+ years) but wanted to give everyone a hearty belated Happy Christmas and wish you all the best for the New Year. The kids are now 9 and 3 (yes, you did read that right!) and keeping us on our toes... OctoInkjet is still pootling...

    Various printers, old, used + lot spares/repair

    For anyone who has been wanting to get hold of any more printers I've had a major clear out and I'm disposing of a lot of printers that are now taking up space rather than doing any good. Most of the stuff on at the moment is just spares/repair but there's a few gems like an MP830 with a brand...

    Still alive..

    Just in case anyone was wondering... I'm still very much alive and kicking, just very, very busy with a little lady and focusing on keeping things ticking over while trying to grab sleep, sanity and I forget what the other thing is. In case anyone has missed it though there's a slew of stuff...

    CLI-42 "new chips"? Resetter disaster? [Spoiler = no]

    [Summary] Question: Has Canon brought out a new chip for the CLI-42 cartridges that can't be reset now? Answer: Not to our knowledge. Related: REdSETTER units for CLI-42 chips are not affected (we tested). Some other third party chip resetters are apparently having problems though. [The Long...

    Bring out your dead... [printers]

    Apologies for my lack of presence this past few months but the wee lass, her brother and of course, work, has made forum time near on impossible... .. mainly because I'm acquiring a fair amount of keyboard face of late.. Tired? much? not hardly! Anyway, the purpose for this post is to ask if...

    L800 - pigment inks - contamination?

    Got a bit of an annoying issue with an L800 we're playing with... We've been documenting the various processes and things that can go horribly wrong but despite expecting issues like clogging, etc... we found ourselves faced with a whole other issue. The Magenta channel is getting polluted...

    Epson XP Premium/Photo Printers - Starting over

    There was a LOT of discussion about the Epson XP Premium printer series in this thread back in 2013-14 and due to lack of time I never really had a chance to spend a proper amount of time on the different options. The design of the cartridges really threw things in to something of a loop and...

    Epson R3000 - Anyone removed the buffers?

    Currently in the process of nailing down a clogging issue (not our inks before anyone asks :P) that's established itself in an R3000 but given the expense of the printer I was wondering if anyone has previously disassembled this model enough to access the printhead inlet nozzles (the ones in the...

    The more you know... #facePalm

    R2880 printer, all nozzles firing, works fine... trying it out with some new inks but we were seeing this sort of "bunching up" in the vertical. Eh? thinks I, so we figure it's a problem with the paper feed tracking, probably dirt on the disk... Take the side off, nothing we can see... Weird...

    Ultrasonic cleaning: Experts needed

    One topic that crops up a lot is that of ultrasonic cleaning of printheads and from my very limited experience, with a Canon iP4000 printhead, it's very, very easy to get things horribly wrong and effectively fubar the whole thing. So, I'm putting out a call to arms for those experienced in...

    Cleaning solution application/methods for Canon Print heads?

    Question... How are people applying any cleaning solution to their Canon (not touching Epson here) printheads? As near as I can tell there seems to be a couple of standard approaches: Droplets to the ink receiver/inlet A bath of cleaning solution that the printhead sits in A pad of paper towel...
