"Thankfully the ink is not leaking out from the damper and filling the top of the head area. It's going clean through the head. Also, if I turn the printer off (main power) no ink moves through. I'll go through and inspect the dampers for…"

"They never tell you why they changed. Have not seen any internal notes that I can share or hint to. I would say you do not get the constant notice to shake the cartridges. The main issue is normally the damper and if that device as a value do not…"

"Was that a primary reason for them to change the orientation of the cartridges for the VSi models? Cap sits properly and seals to the head correctly. Dampers were installed the same orientation, just checked that again this morning. When I pulled…"

"I would be quite concerned I would have a catastrophic internal overflow if I were to do that :( At least for now, it's all flows into the drain bottle, until it overflows as pictured above."

"VS carts sit up and system was changed for the VSi models. The ink had a tendency to damage the cartridge and was a contributing factor if it defeated he sensor in the chamber. Also check to see if the cap sits squarely on top (flushing), and lastly…"

Alright, if you saw my VS-540 post as well, you know I'm in an awful place with both my printers down right now. On the verge of a mental breakdown of some sort! :)I've seen a couple threads that were old with similar and identical problems, but no one ever posted a resolution.Printer: VS-300Ink config: CMYKLcLm+Wt+Mt (Wt and Mt are both cleaning cartridges, I will never use Wt Mt)One day I woke up to this disaster (photo attached), all the ink leaked out of two (M & Y) cartridges, through…See More

"Good, new points. Did not lubricate before insertion. What do you recommend using as a lubricant that won't contaminate the head or anything else? And yes, the cap top fully seals and pulls ink."

"couple of things to add when you fitted the dampers did you check that all of the old dampers seals where cleared out. did you lubricate the new seals before fitting so they can slide in to place correctly as only push fit they can deform whilst…"

"Blockages are common, but dependent on temperatures and coincidentally - magenta is a known clogger.  No kit that I know of,  and not sure if lines are controlled (dealer) or you can get them from Rolanddga.com. Clogs are usually in the T…"

"Third opening is capped. The top opening on the output side of the pump is capped. Did re-check flushing position and all is good. I could totally agree with leak. Are blockages at all common with the ink lines? Is there a kit I can buy with…"

"Is the third opening on the captop capped Is the top opening of T coming from pump capped Did you check the flushing position of the captop Sounds like a leak, and since it is a closed system - at rest the ink refills the dampers"

Been having an persistent issue with my VS-540 for about 3 months now.Ink configuration: CMYKLcLmMCThe secondary magenta channel (the one that runs through the circulated circuit) will slowly drop more and more nozzles after continued printing but also seemingly randomly. If you run a cleaning normal, medium, to powerful you will get massive dropout of the magenta nozzles and then slowly the adjacent channels as well. Cyan and moving over from the left of the test pattern.Parts replaced:…See More
