On the need to kill a printer…

Suddenly my Epson R2400 stopped churning out gorgeous prints at my beck and call. Instead, unbidden, it churned out muddy, crappy, sludgy prints. It has been vexing me – displeasing me greatly. And no amount of pleading has done a thing. I played with profiles and color thingys and came very close to offering a sacrifice to whichever gods would hear and answer.

Then I put some new ink in, ran the utility to clean nozzles and heads, and BLAMMO! Gorgeous prints. After using nearly a box of Velvet Fine Art paper.

So the lesson, kids – is don’t freak out. Be calm. And run the utilities. Then slaughter a small mammal and howl at the moon. But only AFTEr running the utilities.
