epson 3800 doing a strange thing.
Nov 19, 2012

I just purchased my fifth epson 3800 series printer (this a 3880 of course) yesterday after my oldest of these a 3800 started doing a strange thing.  When I do a nozzle check, I have what looks like "light black" coming through where the yellow patch is supposed to be, yet when I do actually color prints - while not exactly dead on...they aren't terrible and the yellow portions of the picture are printing yellow.

I love and hate these things.  Beautiful prints when they work but cost prohibitive to repair so you simply have to trash them.  This 3800 will soon be on it's way to the landfill if I can't figure this issue out.  Number 3 to the dump.
