Re: Anyone print A3 ?

I have an Epson 3800 A2 printer which recently suffered its first ever head clog after about ten years somewhat occasional use. After running a few cleaning cycles I've let it sit for a couple of weeks, and now it's back to normal with a perfect nozzle check. The smaller Epsons do seem to suffer badly with clogs though, I've had 1160s, a 2100 and more recently an R800 all of which have been troublesome. The 3800 uses a different cartridge technology I believe and you can even change a cartridge mid-print with no visible effect on the print. I recently changed the light cyan cartridge and was surprised to find its best before date was 2012 - still worked perfectly! I have an Eye-one profiling device which cost an arm and a leg but which does the job very well.
