And my attempt to print a page of mostly text was a disaster.

Time out today for a dental implant (kind of keeps me away from the drated printer!), and then I guess I’ll wait to see if the cleaning kit helps.

On the other hand, I have never gotten a print out of this printer that was entirely satisfactory. The first set of ink carts never quite passed their nozzle tests. The replacement set was better, but I would still see white streaks occasionally. I thought it was because I was being careless about turning it off when not in use, and it did improve somewhat with the next set when I was more careful.

But now this. Maybe I should be looking for a replacement.

Got a wonderful ad for a Xerox Phaser yesterday. Laser color has come a long way in the past decade.
