"No problem Debbie. Not using it a lot is a problem, especially for an older machine. The cap will dry out and get spots that have to soften up for the ink to be pulled into the dampers. So in addition to seeing your cross colors you should be…"
"I cleaned the strip again.. and then ran a test with big blocks of yellow and it looks like it is working now.. Thanks!
The cap is older than that, so if I have any more problems I will swap it out. We don't use the printer a whole…"
"Yes your captop is how old? They are rated for 6mos. Your machine should easily get 1 year, but if your answer is over that then the pump cannot pull the ink into the head and thus colors are crossing. Only clean the strip with alcohol!"
"heads require ink, if the top prevents it from pulling the correct color it will pull the closest color. So you will see that on the red/yellow or blue/black. The only other way it happens is from a dirty encoder strip."
Hi Everyone,I have a question as I have never seen this before.Yesterday I was not getting any color from either red/yellow. I did a bunch of cleanings and I have the red back and part of the yellow. But I have red coming thru on the yellow. Should I just keep cleaning it or should I be replacing the cap?In the pictures the worst one is the most recent.Thanks for the help.DebbieSee More
"This is an older thread but here is what I have done in the past. Hopefully you got it worked out. I have used a heat gun in the past to remove vinyl when I am redoing the design. Usually on cut vinyl though. Sol Opaq is a…"
"It's kind of a touchy "repair" with the material substrate your using. Did the customer require a pantone match to begin with. We have not had a lot of great results doing this with tee shirts. It's expensive but we would most…"
"Just to add to what Butch said, use the meth initially from the back of the tablecloth to help reduce any ink running onto and staining the tablecloth. (Lay it over a bowl)If you accidently get color on the front, a high force spot gun should…"
"You can use a hi temp heat gun ( Craftsman Harbor Freight Home Depot etc.) to remove the decal then use methylene chloride remove glue residue. Any remaining residue can be removed by laying a piece of transfer mask over the area press at 320…"
Hey everyone,I have a very expensive white table cloth ($135) that I put a Quick Print logo onto. The customer doesn't like the color on one portion of the design (although they approved the artwork). Is there anyway to get that piece off so I can print that portion again? I'm scared to use the chemicals as they usually bleed and the tablecloth is white. I saw in one post someone used a heat gun to pull the vinyl up. Do you think this is possible? Do you just use one of the cheap craft…See More
"Maybe I should also add, that I have no clue if you can or you can't order Express from IW
But I can tell you, without hesitation, these 2 substrates aren't the same......they didnt just change the name to confuse you
"I guess I still don't understand, Debbie
Express Print is Express print
Quickprint is Quickprint
They are definitely not the same
If you want to order Express Print, like we do, you can order it from Stahls"
