"Yesterday I didn't mess too much with the 640 but I cleaned and salvaged all the parts. In doing so, I completely dismantled the old print head (original to machine) and the new print head that I messed up and found that the new head had a…"

"As of last night the machine is printing 100%, I ran some GCVP material in it and put a new blade and was printing and cutting. 3 perfect nozzle tests.  Not sure what thing we did that made it stop sucking air, because I checked each connection…"

"Not helping your issue, but your media - you can move to the left and set a new base point opposed to wasting so much. Also it is better to take one good straight on picture than to show all the other test. Lastly as a tech at $150 an hour, that is…"

"I mean you can see from this pic that I got a 70% nozzle print then the very next one almost nothing on that channel, extremely frustrating."

"Many hours later and still can't get the last channel to print. Checked o-rings, replaced one o-ring. I'm getting sometimes 30% sometimes near 0% on nozzle test for that channel, they are usually pretty different looking, not consistent.…"

"Sometimes you just need a head! Also - check your Orings - for that color that it is correctly seated - it can come out of place You could have blew the valve in the head Could be an electrical failure in the head Could be a bad damper Could be a…"

"Update: Did a full head wash with new flush cartridges. Got all the lines clear except one Cyan is sucking air and I can't figure out where, so it moves slow. Completed the wash and fill and no further progress was made, so basically a waste of…"

"Sounds like a good plan. No choice in trying to save the head. If you need specific colors you can try printing blocks of that color to move that color. You are may need to check the damper and hope it clogs there and not down in the nozzles. These…"

"I replaced all dampers today, had some yellow ink clotting in the one damper. Was able to pull cleaner all through that line and now all colors are pulling clean through the dampers. Got some Cyan, Black and Magenta on the nozzle test but the Cyan…"

"Also, clearly my pump is working at the panel but I'm wondering if one of the circulating pumps could have some dried ink like I found in a couple of the choke lines and be sluggish or not moving ink. Wondering if that could cause any issues…"

"Wow Reading all and what I would have done different HeadWash on the old head with the old inks. BTW I have no issues with the old inks - they can hang in there for a while.  When you re-ink the lines you supposed to re-tube the machine - I…"

VS 640 Restoration

I got a decent deal on a local pre-owned VS-640.I already own a VS-300i and an older BN-20, both of which I bought new.

The following is the best factual chronological order of things I've done since owning it.-First night, set it up, powered on, scrolled through menus, setup sheet, all seems in…See More
