"Looks like after making a big mess and using a bunch of syringes, I got ink to the head finally!  Thank You everyone for the help.  I have another issue that I will start another thread on. Thanks Irving and Scott for the input."

"Your choice Dave, but I can promise you Ive worked on at least 20 machines that were using Bordeau ink, and every one of them needed new heads because the particles in the ink is clogging the nozzles. Can you pull ink through the heads with the…"

"I doubt the ink has anything to do with this problem as I can physcially see no ink is getting to the heads.  But I will note what you are saying."

"We have a winner! Bourdeau ink is known to cause clogged heads. With your heads over 10 years old, I would have to think that they are over their 6 billion shot count expected life.  I'd say you're due for new heads, dampers, captops…"

"The heads are 10+ years old. The captops 2 are brand new, 2 are about 3 months old. I have 2 new ones. I can order a new wiper and the ink is 3rd party made by a company called Bourdeau (sp)."

"Hi Dave. First things first. How old are the heads? How old are the captops? (the ones in your photo are junk. doesnt matter how old they are. Do you have 4 new captops to install?) The wipers definitely need replaced. (the yellow ink on the captop…"

"I worked on it somemore tonight.  I got some syringes, although not the right size tips, but I made it work.  I finally got black ink to the head. The magenta is still far away as I don't see any ink in the line.  I did a test…"

"But that is not related to my no ink issue correct? The wipers and scrapers are fairly old.  Also to answer your question from earlier, The printer last printed decent and was used about a month ago."

"Tops are rated for 6mos. A CMYK machine can get up to two years if maintained. However, you cannot have that type of ink build up and have over two years and expect to have nozzles. So I am thinking wipers, scrapers all are causing your issue."

TurboDave replied to TurboDave's discussion Megentta and Black not getting ink to the head
"Only 2 of the tops are new. The black and magenta.  It looks flooded because I have another printer that has whites and the head can get clogged easy if you let it sit too long.  So what I did with this machine was fill the tops with…"

"What brand of ink are you using?"

"Oh a drug store should have syringes, they might not have the big ones but the regular ones should fit the hose no needle required."

"Ok great the pump up is when you want to get the ink out of the machine for lets say transportation. You use the fill to reink the machine. You can also use the fill to flush the machine. In the future when doing nozzle test, better to do a shot of…"
