Hi all,

First and foremost, many thanks to the gurus here for their knowledge and wisdom.

Have a R2000 (running OEM carts) with clogged Y and R channels. Cleared them with Piezoflush. Nozzle check looks all clear except for 1-2 heads, so I removed and reinserted the carts. This seems to have introduced airlock issues, with multiple channels now showing empty lines (where this is clearly not the case).

In my case, my typical solution would be to replace the carts, or in this case I had cleared the air bubbles using some Piezoflush. Would there be any alternative solutions in this case?

1) Leaving the printer aside for a few days (to allow the ink to settle)
2) Replace cart (this is a hit or miss)
3) Print test strips of the affected colours

Have read through this thread:

Thank you!

I would allow the printer to just sit a day or two, which typically clears air-binding in my Artisan 750. I believe the air dissolves into the ink, but who knows?
