This is insane! Print clogging on R1800
Jan 20, 2011

Man, I thought my old 1280 was bad, but this is ridiculous. Just before Christmas I was going to do some printing, so I spent time (and ink, too much ink) clearing the print nozzles until things looked just fine. As fate would have it, I ended up going on vacation and not printing at that time. Just turned the printer off until today.

Now I'm cleaning and cleaning and cleaning and cleaning, and still I have three colors that won't clear up. The insane part is how much ink I've used up in this stupid cleaning process. (WHY CAN"T EPSON LET ME JUST CLEAN ONE COLOR AT A TIME!!!)

I've now changed 3 cartridges so far, and three more are showing as low. The first one I changed out has only half its ink left in it!

And I thought the Epson R1800 wasn't too bad on clogging. Is it (a lot) worse with older ink in it? Some of my ink was at or past due date. I've always used Epson ink.

Never had this much trouble before.
