  • Great info Joe - I bought this paper at Michaels back when you first posted about it (must have been at least a year ago?).  Created a profile with the ColorMunki.  At that time I didn't care for ...
  • Replied in Jay.........
    Wow, this is sort of a breakthrough to not have to switch black inks just to keep the lines flowing.  And it sounds pretty darn easy.  I do have a Color Munki so can make profiles as you suggest. T ...
  • Thank you Bob - that was my initial thought, but reassuring to have your thoughts. Jay
  • Created discussions wrong ink in cart - my goof
    A few days ago I topped off the carts in the R3000 - Cone carts and ink. I try to be so careful, but, I goofed. Put LK ink in the PK cartridge. Aggggghhhh. I used the syringe to draw as much ink ...
  • Bob, Your solution to the challenges of ink swapping is intriguing.  A couple of questions - How do you decide where to set the ink density slider?  I am guessing you will say trial and error, but ...
  • Did you resolve this yet?  I print from Lightroom and W7, but this sounds like the printer ink type is not correctly selected.  Check it by looking at the display window on the front of the ...
  • Thanks Joe and Bob - So reasonable to assume that I could have a mix of IJM and IJC carts? Jay
  • OK, a day late, but just wanted to say that the support of this forum has made operating my R3000 with 3rd party inks a manageable thing. After topping off carts the other day and reinstalling ...
  • Richard, I had the problem you describe with the R3000. It was because I had not used the matte ink in a long time and the ink that was near the feed dried and clogged the head - at least that is ...
  • Eric, Thanks for the reminder.  Have loaded two solutions recommended on another thread, but hadn't gotten around to running the backup.  I do back up to Carbonite, but it is better to have it on ...
  • Thank you all for the suggestions.  I now have a checklist.  Heat is a possibility.  I do clean the system periodically, but occasionally it gets to be longer between cleanings.  I will download ...
  • Created discussions Sign of a failing SSD ?
    My primary drive is an ssd.  the computer started rebooting by itself (mostly at night).  Now it reboots unprompted a little more often.  Is it correct to assume that this is most likely a failing ...
  • Bob, Thanks for the info - see above post in reply to Joe - it holds for true for you also.  I have lots information you have provided in this forum cut and pasted into Whizfolders.  Often times ...
  • Joe, great information that I will be saving.  I keep tidbits, morsels and nuggets in a program called Whizfolders.  It is amazing how much is attributable to you.  I cut and paste information ...
  • Bob, That is brilliant!! And would solve a huge problem for me.  Since I have plenty of both inks I could play around with this and see how it goes.  I am assuming that I would want (need) to make ...
  • I am not as disciplined as you are - try to switch every 6 - 8 weeks, but sometimes.....  If I go to long and have a problem it is only a few nozzles and pretty easy to resolve with one, maybe ...
  • Hi George, I read through the responses and it sounds like you are ready to go with the 3000.  I have the R3000 and it produces fantastic prints.  Also, am using Cone / InkJetMall inks.  As someone ...
  • Replied in Great!
    Joe, Thanks for directing me there - I am using Cone inks, the individual chips are $8.64 there vs. $2.25 at Inkjetcarts.  And I agree with you that these are most likely the same chip. Recently ...
  • Replied in Great!
    Follow the link here http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3240115 I am using Cone carts, but they are the same, or similar enough that these instructions worked.  The video is not very good.  I ...
  • I was thinking of printing an unaltered image as a exercise in image brightness.  While I feel that I am mostly there - have not fully mastered brightness / darkness in the print. Thanks for the input,
