Question about Epson Stylus Pro 10000CF InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Just purchased an Epson Stylus Pro 10000 Archival Ink. Nosel check looks good with solid lines, however prints are very light. Ran clean multiple times. Printer came with existing ink and I don't know if it may be because the ink is old (2 to 4 years per cartridge) or if the head needs cleaned. Or...?

Old ink loses some of its intensity after about 8 months.
heat/light seems to destroy some of the depth in the ink's shade. i would be completely replacing the cartridges with fresh ones. Constant cleaning uses up so much ink and the casettes will need replacing too often. This raises the cost of your prints.

How do i need to purge the ink lines on an epson 3880

Purging Procedure - If you have just installed a new archival or Quadtone cartridge you must purge the Epson print head of all of the old, non-archival, ink before you can begin to print with the full archival effect. The print heads in the Epson 200/400/440/500/600/640/740/800/850/860/900/1160/1520/Photo/Photo 700/Photo EX/Photo 750/Photo 1200 printers hold about 3 to 5 pages worth of ink. Always run a Nozzle check before printing. Even if you get a perfect nozzle check on your first try after putting in a new cartridge, run at least one or two head cleaning cycles. This will prevent any excess ink from over filling the print head. After the cleaning cycles, use the purging test patterns below to purge your system of the old ink. After printing about 5 (8.5x11) pages of this pattern, 98% of the old ink will be gone. The rest will come out slowly and may take as many as 20 or more pages, but at the 98% point you will see good results. If you have an Epson 3000, 5000 or 9000. See below

How to fix blue nozzle

Beings there are to "cyan" color heads, light cyan and regular cyan, your question makes little sense. Either way it sounds like both print channels are clogged so you are getting no clue output at all. FIrst check your cleaning pads and the parking pads. They are worn out or dried out by now most likely. One way to help the cleaning Process is to actually push the printhead into the pads when it is running a cleaning cycle. The idea is you want to get a pressurized line so its pulling maximum ink thru the lines. This often clears up many light clogs.

Re: C84 I'm using generic ink, but the red

I have learned from experience, that Epson does not like generic ink. You must use Epson Genuine Cartridges. Hopefully, you haven't screwed up the printer, like I did. I did try cleaning the heads and doing everything possible. Use 2 cartridges of ech set, for cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. ......But Nothing.
Had to go out and purchase a new printer.;
Good Luck :0(

Archival ink for epson 740i?


Great question and one I handle for Professional Photographers here in my area.

First of all, are you working in a museum environment or not or another type environment where chemistry of the paper needs to e controlled because of what it emits when decomposing, or is this an issue of the paper and ink being exposed to flash photogrpahy, klieg lights, or UV -A or B sun rays?

To what factor is cost involved?
