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…Continue

"It is not the print carriage board, no change in behaviour after swapping. Can print 3-4 jobs, then magenta drop out big time."

"The cables from the head go to them - the print board to the servo board, and the servo to the mainboard. All those may also be the same with the Mainboard being switches to change it for the 540."

"Ok, I was definitely thinking electronics now too at this point. Like a capacity, transistor, or voltage regulator just giving up after a certain amount of cycles/head/load. Which board is the print board?"

"So I think it is time for boards: Without looking - I think the VSs boards are the same - start with the print board and swap that to see if problem is the same. I think it runs until a chip heats up and then it cuts out and affects your printing."

"Ok, I wanted to post an update on this one as I'm still stumped completely and I've dumped probably $5000 into this printer in the past week with no forward progress and I'm at my wits end. Since last time: TWO new heads, new cap…"

"SOLVED: Bad drain pump motor. For anyone finding this thread 5 years from now like I always rely on :)"

"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."

irving donaldson replied to Brad Goldring's discussion VS-300 Dumping Ink
"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…"

"always thought this to be a siphoning problem how far in to the waste tank do the pipes go they should not be able to touch the ink in the bottle. possible clamp the drain pipes  see what happens"
