That seems to be premature. What happened?

My R2880 still breathes, but does not feed on P600 carts.

I found a place on-line that will buy them, waiting for a quote.


Our P600 was clogging all the time.


Though I am good with computer repair work I don't fool with printers
much so took it to a place that said they could entirely flush it out
and make it good as new.


That was two months ago and I called them frequently for the first two
weeks and they said they were " still trying."


Finally I bought a Canon Pro-10 and my wife loves it.


She had an important project and just could not dink around.

Nice thing with the Canon is if the heads ever would go, they are user
replaceable. No more Epson for us I'm afraid.

I have Canon Pro 9000 and Pro 100 printers. They both sat unused for a
very long time - well over a year. I printed some test prints the
other day, and they were both fine. I was shocked, but it says
something good about Canon printers.That's not to say anything bad
about Epson, though. I have no experience with them.

BTW, Canon says to print something at least once a month.

That is odd with the newer Epson inks and cart. My high end photo printer is
an R2880 which is several model years older than your P600, and I have yet to
experience a clog. The same is true for my general use printer/scanner, an
Epson XP-610 which is about 5 years old now, and has yet to fail me.

My experience was the complete opposite. I spent almost $800 for a Canon
i9900 which had rave reviews. However, it was constantly plagued with clogged
carts. Most importantly I could never get consistent color print results
especially when it came to having serious blue color cast in shadows which
was uncorrectable, even when using correct icc profiles. I gave up and bought
my R2880, and all my color print problems were solved. I probably should have
bought the Epson R3880, but at the time I did not care to risk the extra
$400.

The Canon i9900 prints were just not in anyway acceptable, and nothing I
tried fixed them. I swore off Canon printers since that experience as
producing quality prints with my R2880 has been effortless. I see no reason
to risk that frustration again.

Glad your Canon worked.

With the Epson, it did sit once for a few months but it had clogging
problems even before that...then it got worse.

Though my wife could clear it, it took many attempts and a lot of ink.

Our older Epson printers were great...they lasted many many years
trouble free. At the time Epson was a much better name than Canon but
according to my friends who do this professionally...Canon is currently
better.

the likely cause is the print heads were not properly parked or it was
defective.

I have had one hell of a year and hardly got to use my Epson P800. It
certainly sat for months without being used. In view of your past
experiences I ran a comprehensive test on the print nozzles and all
are still OK. I don't know what happened to your P600 to cause it to
have so many problems. It's not typical in my experience.
