I've had my Lamy Studio Palladium for some time now. It has however been sitting in the case cleaned for a while. About a few weeks ago I put a cartridge in there, (I do have a converter I was just in a hurry) I went to reach for it the other day and there was a lot of ink on the nib and section. I cleaned it up and used the converter. After a few days I went back to the pen and again saw ink on the section, a lot of ink. There's no visible damage and the feed seems to be firmly in the section. I cleaned it again, put a cartridge in it and waiting to see what happens. I've had it a few years at least so the warranty is over. I looked into replacing just the section but no one has the palladium section.

Really just looking for any thoughts or suggestions.

Check using converter. Cartridge may have cracked nipple.
