Re: Epson 3880 - which utilities to run when first setting up printer?

Mine spit out some page with two tightly-spaced faint grey vertical lines when I first got it.  I had to select #1 as they appeared tied together and not spaced apart under a strong magnifier.  I had to set that number in the printer's LCD menu as I recall.

I think there are two different nozzle checks?  Maybe one off the printers LCD menu, and the second off the computer software's?  I seem to recall mine did not look anything at all like the books nozzle check for the 3880.  The one I had looked more like a checkerboard pattern than the staggered color check pattern often seen.

Epson should have made the start-up procedure a little easier to follow, imho.  Maybe a lot less "dark blue shipping" tape too, and some of it in not-so-hard-to-get-out-of-the-cranny places too.

Nice printer.  Not too crazy over their insanely high OEM ink prices though.  The platen height setting is often confusing too where Canon 9000 doesn't have that.
