No Clogging No More!

~~NoMad~~

Six months ago I refilled my print cartridges and haven't used the printer
since.

I stored the cartridge/printheads in small Tupperware containers along with
a damp sponge.

Now I just tried them out and there is not a single clogged ink jet. Perfect
Pictures!

Finally, solved the most agonizing inkjet problem! Clogged Heads!

It is a cheapie Lexmark printer whose cartridges I have refilled numerous
times with Wal-Mart refill ink.

I recently bought a HP 2600n Color Laser Printer because I hated clogged
cartridges. Now I know I really didn't need to buy it because clogging can
be solved by properly storing the cartridges when the printer is not in use.
I may go back to using an inkjet when the laser cartridges give out.

Thanks!!!
I am not a big fan of Lexmark. I have been very fortunate with a Lexmark
all-in-one X85. My wife bought it for me from QVC when it first came on the
market. As long as it continues to work, I will use it.
Thanks again, Vern

I have a Lexmark X6150. Its been a good performer for me on the
printing and scanning end... but

Does the fax user interface on the printer itself suck as badly in the
X85? It's pretty infuriating to use. Sometimes, it will randomly
decide that it's done taking pages of your fax and start dialing when
you're half way through feeding it pages, even if you keep answering
"yes" to the "another page?" prompt. It's enough to make ya
wanna throw it out the window sometimes.

The other gripe is that if you have teh fax set to "answer when fax
tone heard" or "answer - manual" you will get phone conversations
interrupted with the fax thinking it's game time if you say so much as
"ummmmm." This is almost understandable with "fax tone heard" but in
manual mode, where it's not supposed to answer unless you press a
button?

Inkjets clog for more reasons than lack of use. Make a mistake in the
way you refill the cartridge, they clog. Sun strikes the printer at
the wrong angle, they clog. Moon in the wrong phase, they clog.
Personally, I came up with an even more definitive solution. I gave up
color, print my photos at Costco and Walgreens, and bought a cheap B&W
laser. As a bonus, print quality improved, my photos look great, and a
drop of water on a page doesn't result in a big smear. I refill the
laser, so it's as cheap or cheaper than a cheap ink jet.

Also fed up with Epson crap, went to online supplier that offers
Printing methods and paper types
For those that are technically minded, here is some information
about our print devices and paper types. For small format work
(up to 10"x15") we print on a number of FujiFilm Frontier 370
and 390 printers. These work by exposing red, green and
blue laser light onto FujiFilm Crystal Archive photographic paper
at 300 DPI (dots per inch).
The fade resistance of the prints is rated at 150 years.
(now all I have to do is wait 150 years to see if they fade,
and claim a misleading Trade Description if they do.)
And a LaserJet IID flatbed clamshell, built like a battleship
is doing a grand job for B&W, and its refillable.

Funny thing clogging is-

A C62 clogged on its 2nd day, the replacement clogged on the 4th da
the Canon ip5000 over 5 months now I guess, has never clogged no
ever wanted a print head clean yet

I did have an HP but could not comment because I took it back as soo
as I opened it, I could not be bothered changing the cartridges ever
time I wanted to print text, think it was I HP5550 or something lik
that

So silly ol me went went out and got a C62 which was a darn bigge
mistake

The Canon serves me proud so it's Canon printers for me

Never know about Lexmark (now makes them for Dell) whether you get
free printer with the cartridges or free cartridges with th
printer..

Aye... well my experience has been:

C84 = only now starting to have a few issues after 2 years
C86 = refurb I got from ebay for testing... works fine..
D88 = Brand new... Again no problem
MP750 = Love this thing and no problems since I got it tweaked :)
R200 = going fine...
R300 = pretty good.. was refurb'd badly and hit service required early
waste ink tank now installed and reset, all good.

... and yes, none of those are replacements.. All have CIS kits installed
with MIS inks.. Only one is having problems and that's just a case of a
bit of nozzle cleaning to resurrect it...



C84 x 3 @ School = no problems aside from the summer when they don't
print for 6 weeks (now resolved with MIS autoprint utility)

The only serious problems I've had are people selling me "working"
second hand printers that are anything but. Lesson learned...


Each to their own I guess...
