    Hi All,

    Quick question on the Z6200 printhead.

    On the webserver, I noticed the status of both my LM-LC and PK-LG printheads have the status 'Assess IQ.'
    All others have 'OK' as their status.

    Any idea what that means?
    Also, I'm having a hard time figuring out how to read the printhead status panel on the printer. The little 'gas gauges' that are shown there look like they are showing 3/4 full. I have no idea if that is good or bad.

    I'm guessing the more common latex printers have a similar interface.

    Can you help?

    Thanks,
    John

    It means that the nozzle performance is degrading into a marginal state, where the Image Quality (IQ) could be affected. Run a nozzle test print to check the nozzle status, or if you are OK with the IQ, keep printing until the machine forces you to replace printhead(s).

    Thanks - that makes sense.
    It looks like my Light Gray has fired 3300ml and my Light Cyan 3200ml, so that must be it.
    I ran an alignment, and the print quality seems to be fine after that, so I'll see how long they last.

    Thanks again,
    John
