    Bad nozzle checks

    The inks I'm using now are all Dye inks and there is only one black. I've been trying different quality settings on a document that has both text and an image. I've run quite a few pages through it today. It doesn't seem to be cleaning up. The membership card was just an example. I've...

    Bad nozzle checks

    It's hardly essential. I just have a lot of free time right now. My wife downloaded some patterns for doll clothes. They have to be printed to cut out. I'm going through photos I never got around to organizing. There may be a couple of new DVDs to label. This started when I tried to print out my...

    Bad nozzle checks

    I ordered some cleaning solution. It won't get here till Wednesday. I am under a shelter in place order for covid-19. Going out to find glycol would be a problem. Grocery stores are open but not much else. Leaving the house for anything that isn't essential is highly discouraged. I guess I...

    DVD printer

    Thanks for the list! I requested a list like it from Epson support. They haven't replied. I ordered an XP-7100 as an interim printer to use till I decide what I really want. I can test how refillable cartridges work out for me. The printer is cheap enough to toss out if I decide I need...

    Bad nozzle checks

    I don't have any other cartridges at the moment. I could remove the hoses from the set with the CISS. I have checked and there is lots of ink in the black cartridge. Are you saying to I should empty the cartridge and it refill with fresh ink? I don't have any nozzle cleaner for a flush. I have...

    Is printing Dying out…

    I don't disagree. My experience is that most people won't put in the effort. 3 or 4 years ago I belonged to a maker group that had a weekly 3D printer meetup, hosted by Whitney Potter and Andy Cohen of the podcast 3D Printing Today. The meetings were pretty much packed with people every week...

    Bad nozzle checks

    I started another thread about replacing this printer. It is looking like that isn't happening for a while due to covid-19 related shipping delays, and my area being under a shelter in place order. I'm doing what I can to get my old Artisan 837 working again. Can someone take a look at the...

    Is printing Dying out…

    I'm currently waiting for my Snapmaker 2.0 Laser cutter, CNC mill, and 3D Printer combo to replace my current 3D printer. 3D Printing went through a fad phase. Everyone was interested. Then the reality set in. If you want to print something in 3D first someone has to design it. Sure you can...

    DVD printer

    The only problem I have with the ecoTank system is that, there are very few options if I want to get direct CD/DVD printing.

    DVD printer

    My 837 is back in one piece! It still doesn't work properly but it is back in one piece.:oops: That's a bit melodramatic. It has the same problem it had before I cleaned it. Black isn't printing correctly. Text is all blurred, and black areas of images are white. There was an old film...

    DVD printer

    Sorry for the delayed response. My posts still need to be approved. My volume is a bit less than you mentioned. I might print 50 pages and a half dozen CDs/DVDs one weekend. Then leave it sitting for 3 weeks. My wife may print a few pages a week. That's pretty sporadic too. If someone had a...

    DVD printer

    I've been doing a bit of checking. It appears the L805 is not sold in the US market. Is there a US equivalent? How is it with low volume? I don't do a lot of printing. My main reason for the ciss was that when I used cartridges in the 837 I was constantly replacing almost full cartridges that...

    DVD printer

    I've had an Epson Artisan 837 for many years. I was cleaning the timing strip and managed to loose the tension spring inside the printer. I'm looking for a replacement printer. I really like being able to label CD/DVDs directly. I'm also pretty attached to my CISS. Can any of the current model...
