AuthorSubject: Questions about the auto adjustment features on the Epson 4000   [Go to Bottom of Page]

I have been using the new Epson 4000 printer for some time now, and I still on a couple of questions regarding the auto adjustment features:

To be honest, I find it a bit confusing that there are three different locations from which you can run the auto nozzle check feature (from the Utility for SPro 4000 app, from the Epson Printer Utility, and from the printer's control panel)... Can anyone explain to me why, when I run the auto nozzle check feature from the control panel of the printer, the nozzle check prints with pieces of text data reading below to nozzle check pattern, but when I run the auto nozzle check from the printers control panel, if prints out the same nozzle check pattern, but this time without the text written below.

Something else I was curious about, is that if choose to run the auto nozzle check feature from the printer's control panel, it doesn't give me the option to specify which media type I will be using, whereas from the Utility for SPro 4000 app it does give me the option to specify the media type, as well as a number of other settings regarding my nozzle check. Is there a setting that I'm missing from the printer's control panel where it will allow you to specify the media type for use with the auto nozzle check feature.

Another question I have is in regards to some of the features listed on the printer's control panel. Under the first control panel option, which is �printer setup�, my printer lists �auto cleaning� and �auto nozzle check� as separate options, but in the user manual and in the user training CD-ROM included with the printer, there is no mention of the auto nozzle check feature. On the tutorial CD-ROM that comes with the printer, it mentions that, to run the auto nozzle check, you'd have the first make sure that the auto cleaning feature is enabled. I'm wondering if this has something to do with the fact that, when I initially installed the software for the printer, I did not use the software on the CD-ROM, but rather checked Epson�s website first and found an updated version of the software, which I used rather than the outdated one on the CD�perhaps this is why there is no mention of it�or am I missing something again�.

Also, a quick questions about the proper media type to use when running an auto nozzle check�should I use the paper that I plan on making my next print on, or should I specify the media type for the nozzle check via the Utility for SPro4000, or should I try to consistently use Epson�s Enhanced Matte paper (which I�d read in a previous post was recommended)?

Finally, I've been having a hard time figuring out what the purpose of the bidirectional alignment, and the unidirectional alignment are for�Can someone help clarify the purpose of this feature to me?

Thanks!
