I have CIS system in all my epson printers. I have no problem with the R580. But after installing the CIS in the epson 2200 printer, I installed the air filters on the tank. I notice BLACK ink drips or runs on paper while printing. There are also drops of in on the inside of the printer. The ink cartridge is sitting tight. Ink tank is sitting same level ask printer (same table). Look like the ink is coming through the print head.
I notice air bubbles on all the ink lines. The air bubble will move if I move the ink tank high or lower than the ink cartridge. I bleeded the air out of all the cartridges and still only the black ink leaks while printing. No leak or drips from cartridge after removing cartridge from printer.
I replaced the original inks and it is fine. no drips anywhere.
I read leaks are problem for CIS but didnt have this problem with R580. Is this due to air in the line? bad black cartridge? Should i get rid of CIS system and get refillable cartridges?
