R3000 Long startup, lots of noises, 30% ink gone.
Feb 25, 2013

This was not the initial start,  I had already installed the cartridges, and it's been a few months with only a few test prints and an occasional nozzle check.

This weekend, I fired it up to do some serious printing, and it started up fairly quickly.

However, when I actually sent the print job, it went into about 15 minutes of buzzing noises, printhead shuffling, and ink slurping.  I'd estimate the front panel ink amounts dropped from 90% to 60% during this time.

Any ideas on what happened here?   Did it detect a clog and run a full cleaning cycle?  (If so, it really needs to unclog just the affected nozzle(s) and not all of them.)
