I'm very interested in real-world failure mechanisms.  Please contact me via my website (, and let's try to figure out the pathway to failure that occurred in this specific situation.

kind regards,

If there truly are fading results the first thing I would suspect is to check to see what was in the area or near the "Stored Photo Image" that may (or could) have contributed to such discussed change regarding the specific Photo.  Logically, this does not seem (to me) to be the usual results when using the Epson Pigment inks -- based on the normal reported tests and user results for such inks.
