    Nozzle check Epson XP-342: black color always missing the exact same segments

    If I understand you correctly you didn't print for a month - this is quite a typical cause for clogged nozzles - specifically with pigment inks which are more prone to clogging in lot of cases. You apparently did already a strong cleaning already - a printhead flushing which couldn't restore all...

    Since your 3rd party cartridges don't work you would need to buy a set of original Epson cartridges

    Air in the ink supply of Ecotank printers

    Nozzle flushing is more important, but since you'll have the dampers anyway in your fingers when you take them out just remove some ink at this time.

    Air in the ink supply of Ecotank printers

    did you already do a nozzle flushing ? There are plenty of similar videos showing this 50% or 60% is o.k, there should be just some air left as an elastic buffer

    Air in the ink supply of Ecotank printers

    I must admit that I don't have a good view what the current status of your printer problem is and what you got done already in the past so it is quite difficult to advise further actions.

    Epson L1300 using pigment + dye

    You need to try it out - but Epson typically does this with the 4 color printers - the ink in the black cartridge will be used - a black dye ink or pigment ink - matte or glossy - if you select normal/copy paper, inkjet or matte paper in the driver, and the black will be mixed from CMY if you...

    Epson L1300 using pigment + dye

    Yes, why not, but keep an eye on photo printing - the (photo) pigment ink may cause an irritating look on some papers - give it a try both with the gloosy or matte paper setting.

    ArgyllCMS profiles: Black Point Compensation gives composite black when checked

    Yes, I am - but this thread got already quite complex and voluminous which is the prime reason for me to come to an end. I checked several postings about a similar issue from 2 and 3 years ago and found that some links to Datacolor and other don't exist anymore and that some other documents got...

    ArgyllCMS profiles: Black Point Compensation gives composite black when checked

    This thread is closed for me, but a few last comments The quoted Adobe BPC document above does not support this automatic mode Sect. 6.2 states 6. 2. Rendering intent Typically, BPC is performed for conversions using the Relative Colorimetric intent. BPC is not available for conver- sions...

    ArgyllCMS profiles: Black Point Compensation gives composite black when checked

    The issue with Lightroom and 'BPC on' came up several years ago, there is a remark in this document further down https://www.colourphil.co.uk/lightroom-cc-print.shtml ' Black Point Compensation: In Lightroom it can't be selected, as it's always 'ON', which is highly desirable. It will map...

    ArgyllCMS profiles: Black Point Compensation gives composite black when checked

    I was reporting differences between profiles of different origin and in connection with BPC on or off very much from a user perspective - he typically has some photo editor with or w/o RAW functionality and with some embedded print module or a separate layout/print program from Epson or Canon or...

    Epson ET8550 - What compatible inks and the quality of them ?

    I didn't see any relevant differences between the 106 and 114 inks, you can screw off (with some force) the tops of the Epson bottles and swap them over and directly fill the 106 inks into the ET8550 - just keep the 114 bottles for the exchange.

    ArgyllCMS profiles: Black Point Compensation gives composite black when checked

    Yes, this is adding to the complexity to define what the black point is - the bottom point of the gamut with the lowest L or at a neutral black with a b = 0 , and not at a cool black point or at a brownish black point, but this goes beyond @pharmacist 's original inquiry of this thread; it got...

    ArgyllCMS profiles: Black Point Compensation gives composite black when checked

    The blackpoint as stored in a tag in the profile header is L= 19.67 0.36 -2.98, that's not very dark but pretty typical for matte papers, so any further increase by the black point compensation is counterproductive. The situation is different when you display the B/W diagram with with...
