I’ve had an Epson C80 printer for a couple of years now. I always used the genuine Epson cartridges, but lately had noticed streaks in my copies that I couldn’t seem to get rid of even after repeated head cleanings. When it was time for a black cartridge change, I had used a “generic” cartridge. It printed fine for a while, then I had streaking problems again. Then it got to the point where it got so faint that I could barely see the nozzle check pattern (which you use to check the alignment of heads). So I tried replacing the black cartridge again, this time with a Rhinotek cartridge. It printed better for a while, but now, the black doesn’t print AT ALL despite repeated head cleanings (even waiting overnight between cleanings, as the manual suggests). I can print a web page, for instance, and all the color areas print fine but all the black parts are missing. Is it time to dump this printer, or is there something I can try? I don’t necessarily think it’s a non-Epson ink cartridge problem since the constant streaking problem started while I was still using the Epson ink. I’m about ready to give up and get a Canon i560 from Costco. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you! P.S. Also, have any of you had good results with non-OEM cartridges?
