4800 after 5 years no longer prints and shows no nozzle patterns
Oct 3, 2013

dear forum:

i have had a 4800 for about 5-6 years and it has been great.

i have had clogs but nothing like this.

at most (over the years)  i have had to do a power cleaning.

tonight, when i do a nozzle check it prints no pattern at all.

when i print a test chart,  i get a very faint black and yellow blur (instead of the color chart).

when i did the power cleaning (after a couple of regular cleanings) ,

i looked in the tank to find a ton of fresh ink which i guess the pump put through

the head

the LED display does not indicate any errors or maintenance codes.

could the head be dead? time for craigslist?

any input would kindly be appreciated.

regards,

jj
