Question about Epson Stylus Photo 1290 InkJet Printer
Would anyone know if you would get reasonable black and white prints by refilling the color inks with only black inks (using the new blank/empty cartriges you can now purchase). Would this eliminate the color casts you get using the color inks for black and white prints or would it be more sensible to just use the black single ink cartridge ? I have a spare 1290 that I replaced with a 1410 and thought I would experiment wiyh the blacks on the 1290.. Thanks for any help...Laurie
Well, since you say you'll be using new cartridges you shouldn't have
any nozzle problems. About the worst case I can see would be the slight
chance of getting too much ink on the paper resulting in wet paper and
a stained platten roller. Seems like an interesting experiment over all.
Nozzle problems arise when reusing cartridges. The very thin metal film that is the nozzle assembly gets worn down as the print head moves over paper and after a number of pages printed the little holes that are the nozzles get larger making for fuzzy, wetter than it should be, streaky printing.
