p.1 #1 · Epson R2880 head clogging... does it?


I have a badly clogged Epson R800 and am looking to replace it. See this thread.I was going to get away from Epson but have read some good user reviews of the Epson R2880.

Some of the reviewers state that the user has never had to clean the head etc.

I would be very interested to hear from R2880 users as to their experiences, good or bad. In particular anyone who does not print every week (or month - I will be away for about 5 weeks and am worrying about clogging from dried ink on the head)

I would also like to hear from anyone using a CIS with the R2888.

Thanks.

I would say if you use ink jet, it would clog during a long inactive period. 5 weeks is probably not allowed. you can setup an auto printing from your OS to trigger the printer and let it print something out every other days or run the nozzle check. you still want to run nozzle clean when you come back. It is also more handy to have a cleaning kit with you such as http://www.inkrepublic.com/iRemove.asp
the CIS for R2880? there are some good choices out there, check with either inkjetmall or inkrepublic.com

I have to say...that after a period of my R2880 being turned off (about 10 days) I had blocked nozzles on one colour when I did a nozzle check!! I was not happy!

However, I have a little purge image ( an image about the size of a postcard that is basically a strip of colour for each cartridge...and requires the printer to fire all nozzles during the print)...and I printed that......the next nozzle print test was perfect.

Again, thanks for the links
