I have final fighting with my Epson 2100 at the moment. I have CFS system with the matte black tube dried out, which I replaced, but ended up with two loose tubes separated from the band of tubes. They are causing trouble as they get caught and jam the printhead. I have tried various ways to bolt the tubes together, no go. In the weekend I will replace all tubes and get a solid band again.
But the matte black is acting up again with unreliable nozzles. After replacing its tube previously I know it is hard to get all ink out. Then when I create the vacuum it sucks the small amount of remaining ink back towards the vacuum suction thingie, and I do not want ink into it. Yikes! So I have to stop before I want to.
Sigh, I have little hope that I will have a success with this.
Never Epson again, the printers are expensive, the ink even more expensive and it clogs, wasting expensive ink. I do not want to waste my money this way, constant frustrations.
I think I might go for an HP next time, but I fear I feel a bit put off by ink jets. So I doubt. Worse, I do not think that I can afford this at all, so I do not know what to do.
