"I did another medium cleaning and this seemed to help, now getting about 80% coverage on the yellow nozzles. I've burned through a lot of ink with all of the cleaning, but hopefully I'm on track. Captop tomorrow. Fingers crossed."

BN-20 Yellow Channel vanishes after cleaning

I had a few blocked nozzles, so I did a cleaning. Also had to do the weekly shaking of the ink cartridges. Next nozzle test immediately after shows 1 yellow channel missing.Top test is the 2nd one. Bottom test is the 1st one.Could this be an air bubble from shaking the cartridges.Also - my cap top station sponge seems a little stiff. Is it supposed to be soft? Perhaps its time to replace?Regards,MikeSee More
