  • (1) From what I can tell they did change the ink switching valve but that is NOT what usually causes the loss of black ink.  One must realize that the printer while idle pressurizes all of the carts ...
  • I have repaired three 38xx series printers all suffering from this issue.  One thing that will allow you to tell if its your issue is if you have noticed leaking of your PK ink cartridge.  In fact ...
  • I have not actually tried it myself but based on 3rd party inks which work across K3 and HDR while maintaining color accuracy and compatibility with the OEM inks there must not be much difference. ...
  • I had a friend with the same issue on his 3880 so here is what I did to fix it for him. Fist I tried a complete ink replacement using 50/50 windex/water solution and let it sit and did several ...
  • If you don't want to risk anything by unplugging your 4900 in mid startup I thought I would post this.  Maybe you might find it useful. You can unlock the head via the service menu by doing the ...

    Yes but only with the cleaning mixture.  It was small amounts of foam which looked more like a narrow white line in the lines.  They all were the same and with the speed at which the fluid was ...
  • Replied in Results
    As best I can tell yes.  The ones at the carts.  There is a membrane bladder at each cartridge location.  When you pull cleaning fluid through these during an ink fill you can watch them fully ...
  • I have one 3800, 2 3880's and a 4900.  One of the 3880's if from a friend that I was cleaning for him as he had some PK/MK switch issues.  But no matter what I do no matter how hard I try it will ...
  • Do not try SS cleaning if you want to keep your print head alive.  What you will need to do is a thorough ink charge cleaning if its sat idle that long.  You will need the maintenance program to ...

    Exactly and I have read all of them but nowhere has anyone explained how exactly the 4900 works.  They all appear to be speaking from great experience but still have recurring problems and issues ...
  • Replied in Results
    Well since no one either noticed this post or simply don't know anything about what I asked is hard to tell.  But since no one would help me I fixed my 4900 myself with the help of the service ...
  • Has anyone tried refilling an Epson 4900 OEM cart?  I needed to get a chip resetter to use up the ink left in my carts due to the cleanings and such where no ink was actually used.  While I have ...
  • Allen I am not sure exactly what cleaning you did regarding the head surface but when you have something like that it would indicate to me a horizontal line across the head surface of old ink or a ...
  • Well its apparently time to tackle some issues with my 4900.  Its about 3 years old so based on reading thousands of comments about its issues that seems to be about when everything bad starts to ...
  • My 3800 and two friends 3880's have this exact same problem and you can read about many many others all over the world in forums with exactly the same issue.  No matter where I look and no matter ...
  • Just curious if you figured out the problem.  I have a 3880 that I did the same with to try to get to the bottom of the missing black ink curse.  But now the printer will pump ink through the head ...
  • Even though it would logically sound like its something to do with the ink change mechanism why does the problem never happen with matte ink.  There is only one black ink entry port to the head ...
  • The printers work perfectly for a few years usually around 3 on average.  Then the typical warning sign is the PK ink stops printing.  You try everything to get it to print only to find out that ...
  • It is absolutely real in my type of photography, wildlife.  Any time I am using a 300mm or longer lens I always use live view with EFC.  This after many unexplained softness issues from field ...
