I guess age has finally taken its toll. When I run a nozzle check - I really can't see the yellow lines.  I have tried printing on darker paper - still no luck.  Does anyone else have this problem or have a trick for overcoming it?  I have tried printing the yellow only unclog problem and I think it looks ok, but I'm not sure whether there is anything missing or not.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Mel,
That's always been a problem for me. I check under a strong light with a small but strong magnifying glass.
However, Yellow never seems too be a problem so I don't often do a detailed check.

Ditto on what Terry said. Same for me.

At least that explains why you miss the bowl so often.

I use a 10x loupe for the yellow nozzle check but one thing that can sometimes help is lighting the paper from the back with a flashlight.  It's sometimes easier to see the lines with light coming through the back of the paper.

Fred, Terry, Mike - Thanks much - magnification and light - backlight - a big help.  Fred - you are wiser than you realize.
