  • Epson R800 ink waste

    Hello everyone, I am a newbie on this site and have a question. I searched the forum for an answer but did not find one.

    I have the Epson R800 printer and think it is a super printer. I am into making Giclees for my watercolor business.

    My question is this. When you change out an ink cartridge and the printer does it's thing, does it do a cleaning and waste the ink in the other cartridges?

    It seems like it does by the levels shown. If so, is there any device on the market or a software driver so it doesn't do that?

    Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.

    Try epson R800, R1800 CIS from InkRepublic

    there is a very popular solution provided by

    InkRepublic Epson R800, R1800 CIS bulk ink system:



    Their system can avoid Epson's charges, also you can get so much cheaper but good quality on ink.

    You probably can save up to 80% by avoiding ink waste and by using bulk ink.

      Thanks for the reply and info David.
      I have looked at the continuious ink system but I don't think the amount of printing I do would justify the cost. It does look good though so I may have to rethink it.

      To bad there is not another cure for the problem.
