    Happy Birthday Digital Imaging
    on: February 19, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    I agree – truly interesting, and it may be 3 days early but based on a sentence in the article, it seems a propos to wish Jeff a Happy Birthday @67 and many more to come?

    Re: P5000 Perform Powerful Cleaning message

    Yes, advice: that message will persist until you do the cleaning as recommended. This particular maintenance routine has nothing to do with any immediate nozzle clogs, in the sense that it is not being requested because there are clogged nozzles here and now. It’s being requested as a maintenance procedure to maintain the healthy performance of the print head, intended to minimize nozzle clogs in the normal course of usage. The timing of this cleaning depends on a number of factors that are tracked internally in the printer. In my case, it pops up every six months or so. At first I thought it was a bug, but after discussion with Epson ProGraphics technical support it turns out this is a feature. It uses approximately 70ml of ink (my estimate based on waste tank weight before and after cleaning assuming specific gravity of 1.0). So this just becomes part of the cost of business, like it or not. I suggest you just do it because I very strongly doubt this “feature” would have been programmed into the printer’s software unless Epson had good reason to do so and I do not believe it is a plot to sell ink.

    That’s interesting Paul. Do you have a link to where these events are happening?

    If you want one of those new printers, best is to find an Epson professional dealer you can hook-up with to get supplied, if not available just now, for whenever possible.
