    R2400 won’t communicate with Mac

    Well, I would try with another cable first. That has happened to me when trying to print with the wrong printer driver, one from another model of the same brand. Epson printers can also print nozzle checks without a computer either using a menu or by holding some buttons while turning them on...

    Epson L1800 Weird Issue

    Late reply, maybe not the right answer but... The black ink is obviously blocked, magenta as well probably, since the print looks green. The time this happened to me, in the middle of a print, Epson support suggested I made a power flush. The problem turned out to be I hadn't turned the...

    Best pigment ink based A3 printer?

    Well, that's difficult in countries where even ordering items from the country next door is not a thing. In some countries, ML sellers have the same inks packaged in sets for K3 and for L printers (no mention of latex anything). From that and from buyers' reviews, mostly positive, I guess it's...

    Best pigment ink based A3 printer?

    Maybe OP hasn't figured out a few things. On Mercado Libre/Mercado Livre pigment inks for Epson printers, the kind people are putting in their big K3 ink printers, are found as "tinta para papel couché", which isn't informative or easy to decipher at all. On the Mexican site, offers like this...

    R2000 - any linux users?

    Are you using a color profile made for your printer and paper? Your monitor may be calibrated, but that doesn't make any difference if your printer is not profiled to match your monitor! Without any color management I wasn't close to get any decent results with Gutenprint either. I got a...

    Epson paper types (for ET-7750 in particular)

    I'm not using the official Epson driver, but in my case the glossy, ultra gloss, semigloss settings are totally interchangeable. The paper I buy comes as "PhotoGlossy" and "Professional High Gloss" and I can use the same profile. Looking into the file where the specific paper parameters are...

    Anyone still using a 1280 or T007/T009 carts?

    Now I'm learning a lot of stuff by reading the other thread you started. They share the same external case, but the 1270 has a maximum resolution of 720×1440, while the 1280 and 1290 can do 720×2880. And I agree that those old printers are good enough in many cases. At 5760 DPI a newer printer...

    Better dye inks for Epson L1800

    I wonder who says that, they were maybe using the very simplistic OEM driver. I disagree. I'm using the Gutenprint driver and my own color profiles. I've been able to tweak my workflow to great results with T673 ink using the ink density and gray component transition settings. I can also access...

    Anyone still using a 1280 or T007/T009 carts?

    Well, I see you're a more advanced user than I thought and you've seen the same video I knew of. Maybe I was lucky, I think I got the very last one on Ebay, it was cheap so it was worth a try. I don't see any left for 1280s. No, maybe I'll have to pay for it. However a user of this forum may...

    Anyone still using a 1280 or T007/T009 carts?

    Not 1280, but my old 1270 used those exact cartridges. I read on an ink supplier website (sorry I've lost the link) that buying refillable cartridges of those models will be of little advantage, because refilling the used ones is quite trivial. You'll find plenty of videos on youtube on refill...

    Can EPSON L475 do pigment ink ?

    Have you tried "tinta pigmentada" on your local Mercadolibre? Ebay? I have the bad experience of having ruined a printhead for using the wrong ink. I bought a CIS system for an old XP-211 at a retail place and asked the seller to give me pigment ink for it. She gave me Inktek ink labeled as...

    Epson l1800 pigment or solvent ink ?!

    As an user of an L1800, I've had some issues with smearing and puddles of ink, but they are not related to the printer itself or the ink it comes with. My first experience was with Kronaline Photo Glossy paper, the cheapest of the line I think, and it doesn't quite seem to absorb ink as much as...

    Replacing the dye inks with different dye inks

    That the inks are not chemically compatible. You'd need to flush the old ink. I don't really know how, probably by using a cleaning fluid. I'd assume that if the printer was originally filled with T673 ink, and at some point it was mixed with the current ink and no harm occurred, the inverse...
