Do ink clog happen frequently in recent Epson printers? I think I am going
for the CX6400, but I heard that ink clog happens alot in Epson printers.

What about Canon? do they get ink clogs?

Thank you for your time.

Only if you are a Idiot and miss use the printer, or its in a hot place and
you don't use up the ink in 6 months..


Plus they must be turn on once a week..



And never powered off at the wall.

I think ill stick with my canon then. I had the same ink in my 850 for
a year and it gets turned on every 6 to 8 weeks if its lucky. Never
clogged and the nozzle check prints perfectly.

and to top it off, I AM AN IDIOT!!!

Sorry, but there aren't enough idiots in the world to explain all
those epson clogs. Yes - they are very prone to clogging.

>and miss use the printer,

How do you missuse a printer? All the people I know, sit theirs on
their desk and use it to print stuff on paper.

>or its in a hot place

Yep, the clogged ones always have that in common - they were stored in
the oven. (Yeah, right.)

>and
>you don't use up the ink in 6 months..

I had NEW Epson - with NEW cartridges and it clogged. The epson
service tech serviced it, fitted another set of NEW cartridges and it
was clogged again at the first printout when I got it home.

>Plus they must be turn on once a week..

Left on all the time. Still reguarly clogged.

>And never powered off at the wall.

Never was. Still clogged.

>>What about Canon? do they get ink clogs?

Yes, but no where near as much as epson. Besides, if you get an epson
you'll quickly get sick of the noise it makes every time you turn it
on, or print a sheet of paper...

Eee-eee. Eee-eee. Eee-eee. Grind, grind, grind. Beep! Beep!
Beep! E-eeeeeee. E-eeeeee. Squeak, squeeeeeeaaak.

The noise is so ingrained in epson users, you could probably email the
above to an epson user and ask them what it reminds them of. I know
what answer you'll get.

>>Thank you for your time.

You're welcome.

PS. Buy a Canon. Quiet as a mouse, refills no problem (apparently)
and rarely see messages about clogged heads.

You haven't been visiting news groups very long have you? If they
give a fair percentage of idiots as in the world at large then there
are plenty enough to misuse printers.

In my experience? Oh, yes.

Every single Epson I've ever owned (Stylus 800, Photo 820 and Photo 1270)
has had an early trip the trash can because of clogged heads, even though
I've always used nothing but the proper Epson inks and papers.

On the other hand, my Canon i950 has sit for 3 months strait and printed
perfectly the first page.

YMMV

I have an i9900 printer that you have press your ear up againts to make sure
it is actually on. I don't think I've
ever worked with a quieter printer.

It may well: my Epson Stylus Photo (the original one, before they started
adding numbers to the name) is still in use as the 'family' printer. My
2100 is now over a year old and has never suffered a clogged head.

Bollocks it in your mind..

That is one of your Problems, as the print head is not capped, and the ink
dries out.


So You are a Idiot.

I think of it as a quiet "swish" as the printhead goes back and forth.
Mine is about 10 feet away from me and once the paper is fed (which
does make a noise) I can't tell if it is printing until the paper
ejects.

I could have probably saved you a few trips to the trash if you had
gotten hold of my cleaning manual. It is very rare that I have
encountered a clog that can't be corrected with a few cents of common
household cleaners and a small bit of time.

Anyone wishing my Epson Cleaning Manual can contact me at my email
address (above), and I will send you a free copy.
