doesn’t effect any text documents I’ve printed
Are you saying the missing text was just on that print and text printed since have been ok?

What do you think caused the missing text?

This is the culprit, the bad nozzle print that never varies.

So there's significant missing text on the nozzle check all due to three - THREE - nozzles not printing but there's no effect on text in a document?

I'd ask you to square that circle but I see it's after 5 o'clock for you. Maybe tomorrow.

PS The missing nozzles appear in the same longitude. Why does the missing text appear multilevel? I would expect a repeating ink loss pattern based on number of lines printed per print head pass. How many lines of text are printed per pass of the print head?

I’ve been using these new OEM inks on the Maxify for 2 weeks and I haven’t had to do any head cleaning to get good prints from her, so my exercise of using OEM ink has been a success.

Despite having the same missing nozzles in the black and the partially missing text on the bottom of the nozzle print, there are no other signs of missing nozzles anywhere else..

I reckon it was worth the changeover to OEM ink (cost wise) because I’m completely satisfied with the results, mind you I did think the missing nozzles just might come reappear, but you can’t win them all..

Here’s a crop of the latest nozzle check and a Windows Test Page.

The Black seems denser and deeper in blackness. Nice.

The Yellow seems slightly darker.
