I am surprised that no one mentioned shaking the carts before installing them into the printer, nor shaking the refill bottles before use either this is very important when refilling with pigment inks.For refilling I used both methods.
The possibility of getting air into the print head when using A PGl-72 cart is 100% impossible, That’s (Another Myth) air will go to the top of the cart when the cart is in use and stays there till empty, if a cart has ink flow issues, then spend a little more time purging , it will come good.. The best ingredient is patients..
Another tip for you:- reset the chips every time you remove any cart from your printer and never change just one cart, change all ten together.. (Regardless)
P.S. I have advocated over the years that filling your carts using a syringe and refill tip is as safe as the dribble method, but much faster and more controllable because you can put the exact measure of ink into the syringe, but hey not all suppliers stock the refill tips…
