I recently bought a used Epson PictureMate Deluxe/Picturemate 500. It's one of the dark grey/silver models, not the new white ones. Takes the 5570 ink cartridge. Two questions. 1) I thought these were supposed to make a 4x6 in about 30-45 seconds. Mine is taking a full two minutes, sometimes about 2:45. Is this normal or is there something I can do to speed it up? I'm getting 2 minutes from a CF card and 2:45 from a thumb drive. 2) The ink cartridge that came with it seemed to be dead and the ink nozzles had to be run through several cleaning cycles to get it working. Finally bought a new cartridge/paper package and got good results. Let it sit for a couple of months and when I went to print it said the cartridge needed to be replaced. Turned it on and off, took the cartridge out and shook it, put it back in, etc., no luck. So I got out the old cartridge that came with it (with a 2007 date on it) and it works fine. Is my new cartridge just bad or something I shyould be donig? I'm hoping to use this for part-time professional event work, but it needs to be reliable.
