Hi, I have found yur 4800 posts helpful. I have two 4800s here at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, I also have a 9600. We run them with ColorBurst RIPs. I have have had some problems with the nozzles clogging but not as much as you have. My next chore is to tear into the 9600 and clean the inkpad area, have you seen any info on doing this?
