A Digital Printing Network
I broke the nipple on my blue/black manifold. So I took the head off and replaced the manifold. I put the head back on and now when I print blocks of C M Y and K, the M and Y print perfectly, but Blue and Black blocks are printed with Magenta, as if it's doing it to compensate for the now non-working blue/black head. When I do a print test, the blue and black don't print at all anymore. Has she gone into some kind of fault mode? I didn't have head rank numbers so I just reinstalled the head without using the service mode at all. How badly have I messed myself up? Any ideas?
do a powerful clean to make sure that the line did not back up into the damper. If that does not work, you may have a leak in that new manifold.
Thanks for the reply. Naw, that didn't fix it. Also, I've pulled ink through the damper & head via the capping station line with no problem getting suction. The head just isn't firing at all. I'm curious about the fact that it's printing magenta INSTEAD of black or blue, instead of just not printing anything. I'm wondering if it went into some kind of alternate mode, or if I just fried some component on the board.
you may have damaged a board or blown a fuse. Probably need a tech onsite at this point.
