P-600 with PC inks VM channel clogs. Mr. Toolman!

My P-600 printer is clogging the VM channel at an alarming rate. I have been in discussion with Mike at PC inks but I wanted to post here for some fresh ideas.

VM channel clogs really fast, like next day or two.

Only way I can get it running clear again is the utility program that re-runs initial charge routine. Of course that uses a lot of ink even in the unaffected channels so I am hesitant to keep running it.

I have been running Qimage Magenta only purge sheets every day and all colors once a week and still not enough.

Do I have a leak and air getting in the line? Seal issue at the cartridge?

My ink is a little old from Jan 2017.

Is VM a problem ink drying out easily?
