P 800   Qimage Ultimate
I used the unclog prophylaxis t prevent clogs and found this working UNTIL: on one run the sheet showed a sloppy mess of inks running together in the center of the printout.  It spread ink all over the innards of the paper flow so that the next few sheets of A3 to pass thru were ruined with excess ink.
I now use the color spectrum from the Epson test sheet once a week.
Thoughts on what happened with my Qimage purge run?

That is a printer hardware problem.  No test print or software can cause that.  I'd keep an eye on it because if it happened once, it could happen again.

Thanks Mike,
I fear you are right.  Printing out Epson's color spectrum spread found on the bottom of their set-up test page at least once a week will have to  substitute to keep the pipes open.
