    Versacamm ran out of ink, how long do I have before it will dry out?

    My Versacamm SP-300 ran out of ink, I'm out of spares, and my cartridges wont get here until later next week. How long do I have before the ink will dry up in the head or lines? What can I do to make sure it won't dry up in the meantime?

    Thanks

    across the country... I guess I'll find a local distributor for now. But does anyone know how long yet?

    Do you have a cartridge of cleaning fluid? Two of them should have shipped with the printer. The lines won't dry out for a couple of days, but running a standard clean with a cleaner cartridge in place of the empty cartidge will keep it from clogging up on you. It'll take a few cleaning cycles to get ink back in the damper after you do that, but it's better than letting your head dry out.

    With the speed of technology today, anybody who says "it can't be done" is usually interrupted by somebody who is already doing it.
