    Hey how do you guys check the yellow on your nozzle check pattern?

    It is extremely hard to see. The fella that installed our printer had a little light that made it easier, if I recall. Usually if all the others look good I just assume the yellow is OK too.

    I believe if you put a blue lens (or overlay blue translucent) on a flashlight it helps.

    Go find a blue led flashlight at a dollar store or where ever. It works great, but what I can't figure out is why all of a suuden i can't see the yellow so easily anymore...maybe being 55 has something to do with it huh?

    I use either a blue flashlight or a scanner. Stumbled on the scanner when a tech started asking for us to email nozzle statuses.
