    Hi

    I am new on this forum, read it all over, but still not find what was looking for.

    So, We own few Epsons WF-5620 and WF-5690 with ciss and pigment ink - 3rd party - Inktec. And on one WF-5690 with about 20.000 pages printed we have one BK dot missing on Print head Nozzle check. See photo. This dot is always missign on the same spot. We did many cleaning but no success. Also try to put spunge with cleaning solution under the printhead and the results are the same. All other dots can we fix but not this one (we did about 1000 pages from when we first noticed it).

    Here are my questions:
    1. Any other solution that could work or is this nozzle broke.

    2. How far (how many prints) did you go with one Epson printhhead with 3rd party pigment inks. And which ink you use. WE are From EU so we prefer to that suplier is from EU.

    Thx WF-5690 - dot.jpg

    Best regards

    @Team8, I wouldn’t let that one missing segment bother me, because you won’t see any difference when printing, it won’t matter...
