This is insane! Print clogging on R1800

Re: Use real Windex (blue w/ Ammonia D)

I'll try to get some.

My cleaning worked - but only once! Everything was perfect. I started printing a bunch of 8x10's, until I ran out of one ink color. Got about 25 prints made, and they all look great.

Then it all crashed like a house of cards when I changed ink cartridges. More than one color suddenly had clogged nozzles, and nothing I could do cleared them. In desperation, I ran a cleaning cycle, and it ran me out of another color. Replaced that one and had more clogs. Multiple cleaning attempts, and I still have clogs, though they did get better.

Perhaps I need to use a more concentrated mix of my chemical (Liquid Klean) - I just eyeballed it. I think I'll just nuke it with a 50/50 mix and see if that works.

It's still insane!
