    Is it just me or did I just use up a lot of ink doing the ink refill on my falcon outdoor? Seems like a lot came out.
    I also have a question for you guys about the print quality here. I havent even gotten to the point of hooking this thing up to my computer yet but when I run a test print on it the colors come out very grainy. Any thoughts?
    Thanks

    Sorry, I bought this machine used. It's a 62" Falcon Outdoor. Just put inks into it.

    Yes, an ink fill does consume a lot of ink.

    On the grainy issue: I assume that the test print that you're printing is the Nozzle Check Test Print, from the machine's control panel correct? It prints in a single pass, so I wouldn't be too concerned about the graininess in the solid patches. In production you never print in that pass count. In that test print, you want to see essentially 6 solid colors, CMYKcm , with few or no white lines that indicate nozzle outs.
