After running into a clogging problem & wasting way too much ink in trying 'cleaning cycles' five times I finally went into the darkroom & got an eyedropper I use for pt/pd real prints & a bottle of alcohol. I took out the ink cartridges & put the alcohol loaded eye dropper over each hole, covering the spouts that go into the ink cartridge,and then squeezed a few drops of alcohol into each color hole. Put the cartridges back in and hit print on 2 pages of color print & writing & all was clean & sharp. I ran another 25 images after with no problems at all. No banding & no trouble. Any idea if good old rubbing alcohol or Everclear is better for cleaning the printing jets? Or if there is any damage to the plastics in the printer from this? Certainly a lot cheaper than wasting half an ink cartridge on endless cleaning cycles.
