For those that saw my earlier post about the green cast was getting with all my 2200 prints there is good news. I tried every trouble shooting thing I could think of, especially even after the green cast showed up on black and white prints too. I reloaded all software, recalibrated the monitor for the fifth time in two days - switched paper, and then.... I changed every single ink cartridge. And bingo. I will slowly add things back to determine the real culprits but I was on the edge of having to buy another printer because I have prints due to two clients by tomorrow. So for future reference ink cartridges can go bad even with ink in them.

Hi Mike, Might want to check, as I don't know your source for cartridges, but, there has been a lot of counterfit cartridges going around that are almost indiscrimigible (?) from the real thing, in the past few years. Just a thought, as it happened to me a while back.

That occured to me but Atlantic Exchange who I have dealt with for quite sometime is a reputable Epson source. With the 2200 it recognizes a non-Epson cartridge and gives you a warning message. I am leaning towards a defective chip or ink that was too thick. In any respect I am just happy the beauty is working again cause I really did not want to buy a new one at Christmas time. You getting an Leave or RR in the near future?

Just got orders for 29 Dec for 15 days, today, as a matter of fact. Grinning like a three balled tom cat right now!

I am sure the three balled tomcat description is less than enough to describe you [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]. Stay safe and remember when you get back to ones you love you cannot ever 'make-up' for loss time, but you sure as hell can make quality time in future moments.
