Epson Printerson: June 10, 2022 at 5:33 am
We recently purchased our first 64” solvent printer. It did not come with the Onyx rip as it was purchased at a bankruptcy auction. It runs pretty good with Epson Edge Print Rip. The downside is Epson does not allow you to load any profiles into the program. (I am still checking into that.) Trying to not purchase the $4000 Onyx Thrive rip if I can help it. I have the Roland Bn-20a solvent print cut but want to do some bigger print cut with the Epson. The Onyx is a print cut solution all in one rip but that price keeps haunting me. Anyone here running a big solvent with another rip solution?

I have a minor update.
To remind, I have two systems set-up. (1) MacPro connected to an Epson SC-P900 now being tested and reviewed, and (2) a MacBook Pro connected to an SC-P5000. Fortunately, the MacPro/P900 hook-up has been working fine and keeping fingers crossed, except when typing, eating or brushing my teeth, etc. that it holds up. The MacBookPro/P5000 hook-up was working until it failed a few weeks ago (Filter Failure). I left it alone for a couple of weeks but needed to run some ink and paper through it for maintenance so I had to tackle it. I started it up today, let it auto-clean, and tried to make a print. It “filter-failed”. So I implemented Andrew’s “Epson Enema”. This enema solved that problem, but I know from experience that this is temporary. However, at least for the time being I have that route to printing re-established, so I can revert to sending files from the desktop to the laptop for printing with the P5000. I shall not do this for the time being with the MacPro because I want to leave well enough alone with the Sc-P900 until I finish testing it. In case it may be useful to other readers, I recommend using the Epson Enema when all else fails to cure the problem. The steps, from a previous post of Andrew’s are as follows:
1. Delete all Epson printers from System>Preferences>Print and Fax.
2. Go to HDx (system drive)>Library>Printers and trash the whole Epson folder.
3. Trash the LFP Remote Panel if installed.
4. Download the correct Epson printer driver from the Epson website, install it, and re-add the printer in System>Preferences>Print and Fax.
More permanent solutions still to come – let us all hope. I’m in contact with several companies on it.
This is what I have had to do and it works except the big problem is iIhave a half dozen printers.
When I delete them all I have to go through the process of downloading the drivers for each and every one which is a very lengthy process to add all 6.
To add the 9900 and 3880 are the only ones I get the filter fail for. The P8000, F570,P800, 1430 and z3200 it has never happened.

My personal opinion is that cost should be down near the bottom of the list on a printing presentation.
I had a club presentation some years back. My question started out like how many of you have invested up to but less than $5,000 on camera gear. About a dozen in the group raised their hands. Then I asked how many of you have invested up to $10,000 on camera gear and a half dozen raised their hands. Lastly I asked how many had invested more than $15,000 and another half dozen raised their hands. Final question was how many of you own a photo printer and print your own images and four people put up a hand, that’s right four. That was all I needed to hear and launched into my spiel about photography being about the print. I am sure if I had not started with the gear investment question more that one would be moaning about the cost of printing. I played it on pretty thick not shaming them but encouraging them. It makes your photography better and once you get that passion you will be rushing back from your photo excursion to try out that new paper or canvas. It is absolutely addicting and once you are hooked you are hooked!
