  • Very interesting. I didn't know that. Is there a technical reason for the "special" setup cartridges and their one time use? Or is it just some kind of marketing ploy?
  • First thing before pursuing the good ideas already mentioned, open up the computer and physically clean it with a vacuum and compressed air. Dust buildup in the various cooling passages can over ...
  • I always print my calendars on matte paper because people can write notes with almost any pencil or pen at hand for the year that the calendar is in use. With the guest book, pens appropriate to ...
  • Replied in Cables
    You are the first person to mention cables. Yet cables are a common point of failure. I wouldn't be surprised if this turned out to be a cable problem. I am surprised that nobody up until now ...
  • Back in the NT or Win2K days Microsoft did indeed use a system update to change the NTFS. It's been long enough that I don't remember the details. But it was to add some functionality to NTFS. If ...
  • In times past, Microsoft has changed the NTFS file spec. with Windows updates. I don't know if they have done that recently, but if they have, it may be that your 8.1 system talks a newer NTFS ...
  • It could be that in the middle of replacing your battery the repair people got interrupted and when they returned they mistakenly put the old battery back. We've all had days like that. Good to ...
  • Phil1 said that the people that worked on his problem did change the battery. So either they didn't do it right or there is a more serious problem.
  • I believe that the Epson Workforce WF-7610 (or WF-7620) meets all of your requirements. I've had the WF-7610 for a year and it has performed well. It does OK for photo prints but it isn't a top ...
  • Epson does have 17" roll paper for several paper types, just not luster. For 17" luster, I use Red River. For other luster roll sizes, I use Epson.
  • Replied in Epson 9900
    If it works and you have the room for it, that is a great deal. Is the printer operational now? Can you do nozzle checks with it and head cleanings as necessary? I have a 7900, the 24 inch version, ...
  • I just printed a 2 foot by 15 foot panorama with my Epson 7900. It has been a long time since I checked ink consumption so I checked the printer's job history to see how much ink was used. It ...
  • My experience with Thinkpad reliability has been very good. The first one I got was 20 years ago, the 701c. It developed a problem, so I contacted IBM to get an RMA and sent it off Friday. They ...
  • When I was composing that message, I didn't remember how many cores, so I quickly checked the task manager and saw 4 processors. Of course that is 2 cores, each with hyperthreading that doubles ...
  • I got a W550s a few months ago and like it a lot. I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 and am a software developer. So far I haven't done much photo processing with the W550s, but in any case I don't use ...
  • I weighed a 16x19 print glued to foam core and it weighs 6.5 ounces. That is 3.0 ounces per square foot vs. 11.9 ounces per square foot for your masonite print. As for warping, I have been gluing ...
  • Brian, Is that 30K pixel limit a printer restriction or the software used to print?  My impression is that it isn't a printer limit. Since I use QImage which doesn't have the 30K limit, I've never ...
  • Mark, Actually, the max for the 7900 is 24x590. I take and print a lot of panoramas and the longest I've printed is about 15 feet. There is a good chance that Epson will be replacing the 7900 and ...
  • As the 3880 has been discontinued and replaced by the P800, I wouldn't really call the P800 "another option".
  • As others have said, the Epson 3880 would be a good choice. It has just been discontinued and replaced by the Epson P800. The P800 costs around $1200. If you can find a 3880 it will probably be ...
