R3000 - Multiple unexpected cleaning cycles
Mar 11, 2013

Hi,

I have an Epson R3000 printer  for a bit more than 1 year, and during last month, I’ve run through a lot of unexpected automatic cleaning cycles.

A month ago, I switched to matte black ink, and since then I’ve had three printing sessions (20 A3+  per session); at the start of each printing session, the R3000 performed an automatic (and very costly) head cleaning before EACH of the first 5 prints. In all, I’ve lost that equivalent of 3-4 cartridges !

The R3000 is connected to a Win7/64bits PC  through USB; I use the latest Windows driver (6.75), and R3000 firmware.

Has anybody ever had the same experience with this, otherwise very nice, printer ?

Thanks for you help

Philippe
